Aldi Cordless trimmer 20V string trimmer edger ferrex

Ferrex 20V Cordless Trimmer and Edger

Aldi 20V Cordless String Trimmer

Aldi continues with yard and garden products for their Aldi Finds going into summer. The week of April 19th, 2023 you can pick up either this Ferrex Cordless Trimmer or the Ferrex Cordless Blower to keep your yard looking good.

This cordless string trimmer (aka weed wacker) will be available for just $49.99. It will work either as a trimmer or as an edger to keep your sidewalk and driveway edges clean.

This looks to be a different model or updated version compared to last year but the price has remained the same. I am not sure what specific changes were made but in the pictures below it seems like there were some changes. But those could just be cosmetic changes.

It uses the included 20V rechargeable battery to power the trimmer which may a little on the small side for some yards. Unfortunately Aldi doesn’t list the size of the battery for this year’s model. Last year’s model had a 1.5 Ah battery and I would expect it is the same or possibly bumped up a bit to a 2.0 Ah.

If you need a little more cutting power check out Aldi’s Ferrex Chainsaw! Yeah you read that right Aldi is selling a chainsaw.

Is the Ferrex Cordless Trimmer a Good Deal?

The Ferrex Trimmer/Edger will be selling for $49.99 which seems like a pretty good price for a cordless trimmer. The first thing to consider is this trimmer runs on a 20V battery which is on the smaller side. This string trimmer is probably best for a very small yard or for someone that needs a lighter trimmer and doesn’t mind stopping to recharge.

The other thing to consider is the lifetime of the battery. Since Ferrex is one of Aldi’s “Store Brands” (as far as I know) you probably won’t be able to go down to the local hardware store and find a replacement battery when the included one eventually dies.

Aldi Ferrex Trimmer Battery Replacement

All batteries like this will go bad at some point but with other brands you can generally find replacements pretty easily so the entire tool isn’t worthless. This does have a three year warranty and there should be some company that offers replacement parts and support so you should be able to get one, just with more effort. With other brands you can also get more tools that use the same batteries.

The Competition

If you have decided the 20V Trimmer is right for you let’s look at the price of the competition. I looked online for 20V Trimmer/Edgers that include a battery and charger and I found that most were $70-$100+ for a brand I recognized.

I also found this Power Smart String Trimmer on sale for a bit less. You can also find good deals on this Worx Trimmer if you keep your eyes open for good sales.

Probably the best deal I found was the Black and Decker Trimmer + Blower Bundle which includes 2 batteries and a charger. This is the option I would go with if I needed a small Trimmer/Edger and a Leaf Blower.

It is more than buying both from Aldi but they have great reviedws and I know I can find replacement batteries and other parts pretty easy. If you only need the trimmer the Power Smart Trimmer could be an option for just more if you don’t want to go with the Ferrex Cordless Trimmer.

So the Ferrex Cordless Trimmer/Edger Looks like a good, but not great deal. If you want to save the money or just like buying at Aldi instead of online I’m sure you will get your money’s worth. But if you want something that more widely available I would give another of these brands a shot.

If You Need Something a Bit Bigger

If you have a larger yard I recommend going with a 40V trimmer like this Ryobi I use. The 40V battery is generally going to last longer and the motor may have a bit more power. I also have a 40V Ryobi Leaf Blower that uses the same battery and charger. With that I can keep one battery charged up and swap as needed. There are other brands out there with similar batteries and specs but Ryobi is the one I have experience with.

This thing could be really great. I mean, really. However, the battery charge is just long enough to complete my yard (not a bad thing, but I can’t immediately take it over the my mom’s house and help her yard).

There are no replacement spools of string available. Nothing at Walmart, Lowe’s, or Home Depot fits. The best thing you can do is go to Amazon and buy a roll of .050 replacement string, it will fit your spool, just make sure you wind it the correct way.

Lastly, my spool cover (the plastic squeeze cap) broke. I called the number on the back of the manual which took you to Merotec USA. I mentioned what I had, the guy on the phone said to go to That was it. He wasn’t interested in helping any further. And this item is NOT on that website.

So, unless I can find a cap that fits, we’re out $50 and the company that makes it doesn’t give a crap about it.

Do Not Purchase

Made a bad choice buying this trimmer that I now have to live with. First, it is not auto line feed or even bump feed. You have to stop and manually press a button and pull more line out. Second, the line supplied with the tool is cheap and breaks easily, so you are constantly starting and stopping to fix. Third, replacement spools are impossible to find and attempting to reuse an empty spool by manually rewinding new line is extremely difficult and time consuming. Fourth, substitute spools, like those from Workx, fit but don’t actually engage with the manual line feed push button, so you have to constantly remove the cap and pull the line out. Thought I would get something better from Aldi but this item strikes out.


Ferrex 20V Cordless Trimmer and Edger is total junk

Rated 1.0 out of 5

The Ferrex 20V Cordless Trimmer and Edger is total junk. The Battery is dead after only using it twice. It will not even take a charge at all. I’m hoping to find two ADBP2001 Li-lon Cordless Batteries but it seems that they are only available in England. Maybe the Battery that came with it had a problem.

No spool replacement, no good!

There is No Spool Replacement and cap replacement at this point. What if the spool breaks? It’s only plastic! Do I have to stop and rewind line each time it runs out? It would be easier if I could just switch spools and continue and rewind later.
