I have to ask, how good a deal is it, that after a month it is still going. I get it is a good price for the amount of stuff but Ozito?? I get when the words toolshed and wickerman are used it is not going to be the best, but does anybody who has bought this deal or brand have any comments that may reassure me this is worth it in the long run. P.s not voted as I don't know enough about this brand

I have bought a few cheaper branded power tools in the past and they have generally not lasted long term. From now on id personally rather invest in better brands which have good reviews where replacement parts are easy and readily available. When you venture into battery powered tools its even more important to invest in a quality product.

I'll try and help out here - ozito is bunnings badged Einhell brand.

My guess is homebase are trying to offload any ozito brand because its an unknown and also because its bunnings who no longer own homebase

But the facts remain - these tools are Einhell so for individual prices and reviews have a look on Toolstation

I wouldnt go as far as to say ditch or lose the right to sell - more its not a brand they can vouch for

A bit like a vauxhall car at a Ford dealership - something that's available but not not a Ford.

Warranty still stands though irrespective
I bought this kit last time and found impact driver very good to build up a stud wall and a circular saw very handy to cut scalfolding bord to the size I wanted.
Thanks PennyTrader

I bought the Ozito driver/drill pack from Homebase last year and they've been pretty decent. If you need opinions, it may be worth looking for that thread.

Does anyone know if the Drill/Driver has hammer functionality?

I think the drill driver with hammer action in this range is £25. And then if you want the brushless version of that, it’s £42.50. I’m sure isc (who make the tools and then brand them either Einhell or Ozito) have compatible options worth investigating with the Einhell name stamped on them, sold at places like Wickes, Toolstation, Amazon, B&M, Argos, MachineMart off top of my head.

I have many Ozito/Einhell branded cordless diy and garden tools and would rate them mid range / diy quality along the lines of Parkside at Lidl and Workzone at Aldi. Einhell branding gives 2 year warranty as standard in their cordless system tool, and Ozito cordless tools in this system come with a standard 5 year warranty.
Good to get a selection of cheap tools like this if starting out. They won't last forever but you can replace with better ones as you go/need

These Ozito tools are no more Einhells than Einhells are Ozito's. It's just they are importing from the same Chinese factory. Like most of these tools nowadays they are designed, engineered and manufactured in China and various companies around the world import them with their own branding on. It's no different to buying the same tin of baked beans from various supermarkets each with their own label on. Quality of such tools varies by which Chinese factory they use, some are better than others. The fact they share the same batteries clearly shows the intellectual property of that design is owned by the Chinese company and not the importers.
Compatible 3Ah battery and charger is £25 at Toolstation right now - useful to have a backup. Can probably sell the charger on ebay and get £5-10 back:

A Wickes branded battery drill, a tesco electic power drill, some nasty cheap battery drill parents got me. Branded wise id avoid Black & Decker had 2x dodgy power screwdrivers that dont hold a charge after 4-5 uses.
Rochdale store is closing down, various offers on but these are 30% off
I have the ozito hammer drill, drill driver, impact driver and the hand grip torch and I cant fault any of it. Even got carried away and bought the site radio and for the money it's all really good coupled with the £24.99 3ah battery/charger deal from toolstation to go with the 2x 1.5ah batteries I already had.

The only ozito 18v thing I've found to be rubbish so far is the ozito worklight skin which even at £8 isn't worth it.

What’s the radio like? I’ve seen the skin but it looks like the sound wouldn’t be that great compared to the Makita radios?

The drill driver doesnt have hammer so bought the hammer drill skin which works a treat.

I cant comment on other radios because I've not heard any, but when I bought it I did think for the price its gonna be a bit naff and I'll end up returning it but it did surprise me and I have kept it.

Yeah perfectly acceptable.
Their stuff is ideal if you are a diy er, I've been building planters with them the last couple weeks and I've not encountered any problems, put up a blind into concrete wall recess with the hammer drill and it went in easily with plenty of oomph.

I gave up trying to use the Einhell cordless jigsaw to cut lengths in kitchen worktops. I thought I was following a straight line using its plastic seethrough guide but the cut was curving away.

Got the Ozito cordless circular saw out and job done with no fuss freehand. I use the 4ah battery to give it full power. Again cutting through 18mm hardwood ply no problems. Would recommend a corded one though if you are going to be doing lots as they are more powerful and power on tap

I have the drill and impact driver and it's perfectly good for DIY stuff. It definitely wouldn't hold up to daily professional use on a site, but obviously you are going to be using £300+ tools for that sort of thing.
Just to follow up on these... I bought them and have yet to try them out in anger but from what I have used I’ll review briefly below.



TORCH - It’s a torch!! Nice and bright to be fair and is really useful that you can just slap a battery on it and you’re good to go



ANGLE GRINDER - I used this first as this is the tool I’d heard most gripes about from reviews I’d seen. Let me start by saying that having a cordless angle grinder is amazing, not having to trail cables everywhere is brilliant.

The angle grinder itself is well balanced and is great to use however as I’ve read with other reviews there is a shut off to the grinder if it reaches too much resistance. Whilst in essence this is actually brilliant (I’ve burnt out a Makita battery on a cordless circular saw before trying to push it too far ) the problem is that it’s not powerful enough to cut through anything of substance. Even just using a grinding disc it ended up cutting out.

I could be doing Ozito a disservice here but I’ve not used a cordless angle grinder before and others could be the same. I think if it was more powerful I’d say it’s brilliant, as it is I can only say it’s suited to very light jobs.



IMPACT DRIVER - Brilliant, 3 nice bright LEDs on it as well meaning wherever you’re driving you’ll be able to see. No problems with this tool.



I didn’t get round to trying the Circular Saw and the Drill Driver as I plan on returning everything so didn’t want to give them a chance for me not returning!! I did start the saw up and I like the way it gradually builds up speed rather than jolt straight into full whack. I have to say though the full speed of it doesn’t seem that great? Don’t know what the official RPM is but compared to my previous Makita cordless circular saw I can say that the Ozito certainly doesn’t rotate as fast.

The drill drover seems decent enough, didn’t try it but a nice weight to it and looks like it should do everything a drill drover should.



So, all in all mixed feeling about the kit to be honest. You get A LOT for your money to be fair, 5 cordless power tools, a 4ah and 2ah battery and a fast charger. I doubt you’ll find better value anywhere else, problem is unless you’re doing extremely light DIY tasks the ‘power hungry tools’ (saw and grinder) just don’t appear to be up to anything much.

Hope that helps some users who are deciding on whether to purchase or not.
