We bought an Ozito PXCLTS-0182 from Bunnings late yesterday. Got it out this morning, to put the Battery on Charge so we could use it. Imagine my surprise to find NO Battery or Charger Unit. I looked the box over and finally found the smallest note advising that it doesn’t come with the unit. You have to Purchase Separately. Why sell a Cordless Line Trimmer without a Battery or Charger. How do the expect you to use it.
Purchased in December 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse Retail Stores.
My wife frequently calls me an edge snob. Every time she would give someone pointers on how to find our house it would include look out for the nature strip with the perfect edges.
My obsession has progressed from the old cutting wheel on a pole, to a specific line trimmer used only for the edges as it was designed for edging. This has now been replaced by this unit. I didn’t want a mains powered one after seeing the damage that my father-in-law did to after connecting with some concrete, on multiple units.
This unit is very underpowered so t...aking it easy the first few times is a must. With regular clearing it will get through the gunk, just allow it to do so. After you have established the edge maintaining it is easy, unless some careless imbecile in a tow truck parks on your nature strip and smooshes everything so you’re back to square one. Or the moronic pedestrians that have stamped down the edge near your driveway by cutting across, instead of using the driveway just to save a fraction of a second. Just take your time and with regular usage you can have beautiful edges all year round. The kid of edges that allow you to look down upon your neighbours unkempt edges with sense of smug satisfaction. I use this unit weekly and have has no issues so far. The first few passes had to clear out a heap of dirt and mud as the blade was a lot thicker than my previous tools. After it had achieved this it was so easy to maintain the edges.
Purchased in June 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse.
Bought For Lawn Edging Next To Paths
Some edges that I never seem to get to that were just looking very messy.
I wanted a quick fix and this thing was a knife through butter in June in Sydney with the soil slightly damp. Blade looks simple and easy to sharpen when the time comes for that but they are sub $15 to just replace anyway. I only used the highest setting as that was enough for what I was looking for.
IMO easy from start to finish with not even a cord to worry about and the normally nuisance and time-consuming job I never really bother with was all done in basically one quick pass.
3AH battery on it and for the 25metres or so I had to do I hardly dented it.

Questions & Answers
I noticed Bunnings Sells this Edger Unit but does not sell the 190mm replacement blade .
Where can you purchase a replacement Blade for this unit ? ( Bunnings does not sell a replacement blade)
Best to go in and ask to make sure exactly right but AFAIK Bunnings do sell it as remember checking the website. All that said the one I have has been used a good few times and still going along just fine. Looking at the blade I could probably sharpen it in due course, and so expect a good few years out of it at presents rates...........AFAIK the blade is "fairly" easily sourced elsewhere as well..........................Bunnings instore is best if any doubt exists.
Google it and straight up........https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-190mm-edger-blade_p0121683...................Check with Bunnings though as no expert, and not actually purchased as feel would likely be one of those superfluous things that sit around for no good reason for me...
Search the item number on the Bunnings website. I/N: 0121683
It should tell you the aisle location for your store.
Does the Ozito PXCLES-018 have metal blade? I am not interested in a line Whipper Snippers and it must be Battery powered
Per my photos it's a metal blade and cordless..............Lawn edger.
Thanks very much for your reply.
I think I have mistaken the Ozito Ident Number I used. I am not looking for a Lawn Edger. I want an Ozito Brand Whipper Snipper which is battery powered and has blades (Not a plastic cord line)
I believe you’re thinking of the PXCLTK-218.
I have had this unit and it’s not great if I’m honest. I had a lot of issues with the blades and the power switch. It’s still sort of going however I purchased the 36v line trimmer and haven’t looked back.
