Very good cheap drill
I bought this drill 4 or 5 years ago from Bunnings and I am surprised at how well it drills and screws. I just drilled and screwed 75 mm long screws into pine no problems, I was so impressed that I thought I would write up a review. Awhile back I was concerned with the power to screw into wood, and thought it had failed, but then realised that I could change the clutch setting, and no looking back now. The original batteries are both still good and and hold their charge really well. I don't use it alot but it's always ready for when I use it. I was considering buying one of the big brand 18 watt drills but I don't see the need.
OK for small jobs
Might be ok to put in a few scews but for any greater level of home handyman stuff it fails terribly.
Firstly, the chuck does not grip very well and drill bits have a habit of spinning inside the chuck. When using the drill in reverse mode the chuck loosens and the drill bit falls out.
The batteries are ok but once discharged take forever before you can use the tool again. From flat it took about 18 - 24 hours to fully charge.
Great drill for small / light work
I purchased this drill to use and a handy home drill that wouldn't be punished with any serious drilling.
I was originally looking for an electric screw driver type drill to help stick together a bunch of Ikea furniture the wife purchased and luckily I spotted this model at Bunnings. It's not a lot bigger than the electric screw driver type drills, it's light weight, easy handle, 18v Lithium, and 10mm chuck - I was sold.
Yes the drill and battery quality may not be as good as a Makita or Bosch for that matter, but for $79 that's some...thing I can let slide. I've stuck together 4 large Ikea furniture items with it so far, and this little driver is perfect for the job. I love how precise the trigger can control the speed (super slow if needed), it's actually blood great for Ikea furniture assembly. If you're after an electric screw driver, the I would ditch that idea and purchase the Ozito CDL-1810 instead and you'll have 10mm chuck electric driver that is prefect for small home jobs.
Questions & Answers
Can I just buy a skin my drill died after 9 years great little drill cdl 1810
I have an Ozito -1810 that still works really well. I can't remember exactly when I bought it but it is many years ago. The battery still works fine and holds its charge. I had a look in Bunnings late last year with a view to buying a different skin but found after checking with my battery they have changed the size of the batteries for the new stuff so I didn't bother. But, when this one does die I will probably buy another Ozito.
Hi cordless lovers Any one know what courses a ozito CDL=1810 to keep losing power? many thanks
