    My bosch blue stuff has been awesome (thanks bigmuz) but they are very stagnant with product development. If I do jump ship it'll be to Milwaukee in the m12 range just for the ratchet.

    My brother is keen on my bosch stuff so maybe sell that and get a m18 combo set with a rattle gun. The chargers do 12 and 18v so its only the batteries that get doubled up.

    Yeah, i won a Milwaukee M12 setup (drill and driver) in a lucky door prize when the local mob had a grand opening of their new location. Went and picked up the 90deg 3/8 ratchet skin for it on the weekend and it is great, especially for doing pain in the arse shock mounts on MX5s.

    Some of the Milwaukee setups come with a dual charger too, that does both M12 and M18 batteries. That seems like a decent setup.

    was just in bunnings as I want an impact driver and have been looking at Oziti because all the skins are 50 bucks or so. Saw that they do a half inch rattlegun too now, no idea if it would be good.

    Another vote for ryobi though, used one semi commercially and it was pretty good.

    also have a milwaukee m12 battery ratchet and it is awesome. their little 3/8 rattle gun is great too. has a shit tonne of punch but it is tiny so you can actually use it a lot, whereas most rattle guns are just too bulky for a lot of jobs on a car

    I'm disappointed I went down the AEG path now. The lack of range is starting to impact on what I want to buy.

    What they have, and what I've bought, has been great so far. But yeah, need to start looking at other brands for things like a right-angle drill, for example.

    I got one of those in Ryobi just recently. Very useful in certain situations, I should have got one 20 years ago, but back then they cost 3x what they cost today.

    I needed one desperately last week.

    Ended up 'borrowing' a $450 Makita one.

    Since getting my first impact from reading this post a 7 years ago, I now have 7 impact wrenches! This thread has cost me too much money!

    And my 7 year old makita batteries are still going!

    This is why I think the Ryobi stuff is good. You can get anything, from chainsaws on poles to flood lamps and the batteries are all interchangeable.

    Wonder if a company would allow you to trade the AEG stuff for their band?

    Ryobi stuff is cheap, well made, works well and does the job the more expensive options do.

    Fuck knows why nobody else has tried to seriously compete?

    Poor cunt at work had his recently repaired Snap-on drill fuck up, repair bill for a chuck, once over and battery was more than a Ryobi brushless drill with a new 5Ah battery.

    I've had Ryobi in the past, and it was pretty meh.

    I don't know how the current stuff would go in a trade environment.

    I have the M18 brushless fuel 1/2 inch drive rattle gun. Does everything I've asked it to do. If I need bigger I'll use the angry air powered stuff.

    I've only used a mates Ryobi garden stuff. He doesn't rate it as the batteries die quickly - That is their life span is short. But the price difference between my Milwaukee stuff and his Ryobi you can buy a heck of a lot of batteries.

    Ryobi rattle gun works fine, you need the 5ah batteries for undoing wheel nuts. One 5ah battery gets us through a weekend of wheel rotations no probs. Have not tried M18.

    Iíve got both.. never compared though as I use one at home and one at work. The Milwaukee is definitely more compact though which helps

    If you buy it from Bunnings i'd shy away from mentioning trade enviroment if you need to make a warranty claim.

    I dont have the rattle gun but all my other stuff I got no discount using a trade card and when I asked why the person told me the Ryobi gear is targeted at the weekend home reno warrior only.

    To put it into perspective, the length of the warranty is kinda nullified, if the thing fucks out on every second job. In the professional setting, this is the kind of shit that counts. After the second, maybe third failure, you'd throw it in the bin, and buy something else. Time is money.

    I tend to find Hilti or Hitachi around sites, nothing else.
    I finally got around go using my 14v Hilti, worked great despite the small size.

    OK blokes. I'd like a cordless impact wrench and ratchet.

    I have Milwaukee M18 drill and impact driver but the charger is M18 only, not M12/M18. I'd need a ratchet combo with battery and charger. The Milwaukee ratchet combo kits are about $300 plus or minus $30 and their impact wrench skins are mid $300s and up.


    Bunnings Ryobi are $300 for the impact wrench kit (360Nm) and an additional $99 for the ratchet skin.

    So, $400 vs $620-700.

    With the Ryobi there is the cordless blower for $129 and 165mm Circular Saw for $129 which looks useful

    Note that in Ryobi One+ there's few versions of some tools.

    e.g. there's two reciprocating saws. The HD one is only slightly more expensive. There's a two whipper snippers now (better one is brushless), multiple drills and also circular saws.

    Particularly on the circular saw since you mentioned it, the better one is brushless and 184mm blade compared with 165mm on the cheap one. You linked both actually. You have much more choices of blade in 184mm. When I bought my 165mm version it was the only sawin One+ and the blade choices (at Bunnings) were quite limited. I think I even ended up with a slightly smaller ~160mm blade. The brushless skin is more than double the price though. All that said my 165mm version has worked fine for the odd job here and there - haven't tried building a house with it.

    DSM, I think it comes down to two key considerations:

    1. Are you trade or weekend warrior?
    2. Are you likely to buy lots more of the same system?

    If trade, using the tools every day, donít get Ryobi, get something heavier duty.

    If you are a weekend warrior like me, wannabe chippie and mechanic, plus a keen gardener, Ryobi is great. Santa just keeps bringing me new tools on the same system every year. Great to have the right tool for occasional use.

    Any recommendations for 3/8 drive compact impacts? Any others besides the Milwaukee?

    As above. Iím no pro and got tied into ryobi about 5 years ago. The only thing thatís failed has been the charger which was replaced under warranty.
    For home use I have no problem recommending it. If my business depended on it Iíd spend more for a name brand.
    My impact wrench and driver both look like shit after 5 years of abuse, both still work perfect every time
    Also got drill, grinder, chainsaw, lights, vacuum. None have ever let me down.

    So i already have Ozito 18v for random crap tools that i use rarely, and today i was in at Bunnings and saw that they had the brushless impact wrench for $99. Claims 215nm, and can certainly take 120nm wheel nuts off easily. Its more slimline than the bigger options, and i reckon it will be a good second tool. Plus 2 3ah batteries for $69 and im pretty set. Going to see if i can make an adapter for Ozito batteries to Ryobi One tools, and if that works it will mean cheap batteries every time Aldi have something that Bunnings feels like it has to price match.
