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.

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.

QUIET OPERATION – Keeps noise to a minimum while you work.; LIGHTWEIGHT – String trimmer/edger weighs only 4.5 lbs.; sweeper weighs only 3.7 lbs.
−$18.31 $110.69 Amazon Prime

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.

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.


Support for Aldi Trimmer – Replacement Battery

Rated 5 out of 5

Positec USA is the product support for the Aldi grass trimmer. Positec’s # is 866-354-9679. Positec’s main tool product line is Worx. I contacted Positec via email and ordered a replacement battery and charger today since I have a larger yard and the battery does not last for the enjoy job. The cost for a 2nd battery and another charger {I misplaced my charger} was only $39.34 (including shipping) . I used a Worx discount code to get it to $32.57. I have had no problems with the trimmer other than the battery not lasting long enough. I’ve previously gone to my local hardware store to buy generic replacement string, easy job to restring the trimmer.
