Why are these any different to normal bits?

My impact driver feels like it'll take my arm off... So I'm assuming these are harder?
Thanks was going to buy yesterday for normal price. Lol

Yep I would Imagen hardened Steel
These will work on normal drivers, so it’s a good addition to the tool box.
bought one of these. After a few uses the holder shock it's self apart.
Cheapest these have been for ages - I don't actually find them that good, so have gone through 4 boxes off these over the last 2 years. paid between 4.99 and 9.99 with it being around 7.99 for a while now..
Impact bits are generally made of a more ductable steel, and the 50mm bits often include a thinner shank. Both these differences act as a shock absorber to soften the impact. The aim is to prevent shattering of the bit under impact.

You are correct!
I've had a set of these for 2 years and they are a great addition to the toolbox, the bit holder is rubbish and I wouldn't recommend using it in an impact driver. The only thing missing is a smaller flat headed bit.

Good set, even better with the erbauer screwdriver, but they aren't magnetic so can be fiddly aligning screw (rub a magnet across the bit a few times as a temporary solution, or hang it on your driver).
I've used this brands version of Irwin sockets and worked amazing so I'm sure these are great too

Were the bits ok
Have been using these since I got my Lidl impact driver in June. They seem ok and I've snapped a few screws whilst getting used to the driver.
I also got these for my Lidl 20v driver.

My last erbauer set was by far the worst bits purchase ever. Hoping these redeem erbauer...
Recently bought an impact driver from LIDL and was using some pieces that came in a 300 piece drill bit set from Wickes years ago.

The bits in the Wickes set were hexagonal but they had a lip/indentation part way down that meant they locked into the impact driver when you lifted the collar. Do these have that?

Sorry I'm unsure of the technical name - it's the bit towards the right of this pic toolstation.com/sho…BwE

The bit holder has the lip that you're referring to. The individual bits do not, although they have their own very small notch that secures the bit in the holder.
I hope that helps!

Thank you, is there any advantage in having individual bits with the lip/are they commonly sold?

The kit I was using might as well be made of cheese but they're obviously locked into the impact driver - I note that someone further up the thread said that the Erbauer bit holder was rubbish?
Good value if you need a variety. If there's a screw type you use often (normally PZ1 and PZ2) it's worth spending £1-2 on individual and higher quality bits for those sizes.

The lip would need the bits to be longer, where you have 50mm bit length they may well have that profile.
I have just purchased and use the pz3 bit.
I drove 6 , 200mm screws into some timber and the bits showing some wear.
I don't expect these to last, but let's see how it goes.

I've had these about a year and they're holding up well to my impact driver. They seemed to wear quickly after first use but I think it's just the coating scratching.
Good set, been using them at work putting fixings into hard steel etc.

The black coating does wear off but I've only damaged 1 bit, might of been the other half trying to screw wood together
Erbauer impact bits are terrible. False economy imo. Milwaukee bits I also used lasted many times longer.
Heat - thanks OP. Ordered.
Perhaps ive been lucky, but I've had my set a couple of years and all bits are still intact and not mangled, and I use it on cars in my impact driver freeing off rusted on brake disc screws.

So a real bargain at this price IMO

I've had a Box of these impact bits around 2 years, they are used daily (trade) I have around 10 left now. So try these if you want something to last.
Had this set for over a year and served me well for DIY such as fitting utility and couple of bathrooms they have started to wear a bit but a lot better than similar cheap sets. I've just got the Makita 12v impact but that still munches through other cheap bits (other than branded ones like these)
Ordered, thanks

I used a 3 pack of Erbauer to build some decking with over 1000 73mm deck screws and found them good. One did break, but 2nd one still as good as new and never needed to use 3rd one yet.

I usually don't know which bits I may need( only have a rough idea) so a set of different ones suits my individual use case. I imagine other home DIYers like me are in a similar situation.
The big pack of pz2's makes sense for a trademan and great value.

I bought a bigger pack to board my loft and went through about 5 of the 50mm pz2 erbauer to 1 of the 50mm pz2 Milwaukee shockwave.

Your mileage may vary, just posting my experience:)

Then take it back and get a replacement. I've used mine for years and it's fine.
I bought similar for £3 in tkmaxx . Still voted hot

My bit holder broke on, literally, the first use. Screwfix replaced no problem and now its been going strong for several months.
Nice price. Heat added.

Quite the opposite. They are made from a more ductile steel to absorb some of the tortional stress, reducing the risk of shattering.
I had a few of these sets and don’t rate the brand. For simple DIY fine but when you want something to rely on there pants. I got these for £14 a few months back amazon.co.uk/Bos…1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1536742118&sr=8-5π=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=bosch+bits&dpPl=1&dpID=51UxjMiCFlL&ref=plSrch

That particular Bosch one you linked to is good. So good in fact I use it in my impact driver, even though they are not branded as such for impact drivers.
