ALDI Ferrex 6-in-1 Multi Garden Tool (Feb 2020, Feb 2021, Oct 2021) has been discontinued. See all ALDI Petrol Blower Vacuums.
The motor works but nothing else
Attachments are difficult to remove. I can blow harder than the attachment blower does. Edger bloke within two users as did the whipper snipper. Tries to do too much with the one gadget and achieves none.

ALDI 6 in one garden tool.
I own a Garden line brand which I bought from ALDI 5 years ago. Then I bought a similar tool named Ferrex. The Motor failed 1 month later. Broken listen ring. I did not claim warranty as I lost the receipt. I put this down as bad luck and bought another one. Worked fine to start with, then the motor just stopped one day and never started again. Broken piston rings the ALDI appointed repairer said. Got a refund this time.
Another problem with this machine is fuel leaking from the tank Cap and the fuel pick-up grommet on the tank.
Would not recommend.
Terrible quality product.
Terrible customer service system.

Bang for your buck but heavy
Best back for you buck but heavy. Have used it for 4 hours now. Only negative is the weight but again value for money consider the price. With the 6 in one make it hard to walk past for the price. If you bought a ryobi it would cost over $800 for the same set up

Great tool especially at the price
I have had mostly good experiences with this tool. It does require a very careful reading of the manual which was about 2 hours of study before assembling and using but it is a Multi tool. I have used the chainsaw attachment most and it is very good. Cuts through thick timber like butter. The whipper snipper assembly instructions are not fully clear and my initial attempt locked up but a call to service department sorted it out. Lawn edger is a strange design but it is ok. Whipper snipper and blower work well. The brush cutter is also effective. Engine always starts easily and runs well. Very pleased with my purchase.

God value for money
Starts easy , it's weight is in line with it's price, changing attachments takes about 60 seconds, plenty of grunt. Typical of budget line trimmers the std head is average.
Have used as edger, hedge trimmer and pruner - plenty of grunt.

Near perfect; don’t know what the fuss is about putting it together??
Bought this for $99.50 on special from $199 as Aldi wanted to move the stock; as they do with any weekly special items that sit in their store for more than 6 weeks.
Took 30 minutes to carefully read the instructions and put it together after 1.5hours and started using the trimmer. Started after about 8 pull of the string and runs really well.
While it seem heavy to handle, once it was running, I did not even have to use the strap and was quite comfortable to use. And the strap is easy to attach and use. I see some people having trouble with...working out how to attach the strap? All fittings and attachments were in the box and the blower works ok for light shavings of leaves and lawn clippings. Happy with it so far and great value at $99.50!!!!!! Sending the warranty registration today as it comes with 3 year warranty.

Worst buy Ever
Way too heavy for me and the carrying strap is useless. I dont have the box now so am not sure if i can return it. Advice Do not buy tools from Aldi. Worst 200 bucks i ever spent

Not bad so far
Bought it on Saturday 1st of March & used it the same day.
It’s a little heavy & the shoulder strap is too small, as I’m a larger man.
Haven’t used the other attachments yet so I can’t comment.
So far so good.

Questions & Answers
How do we open the nylon cutting head on the lawn trimmer to replace the nylon cutting line?? Nothing in the manual explains how to do this
There are two push-in squares on either side. Push them in and pull the head out.
Where do I get the batteries for the Ferrex 5 in 1 multi tool
Does anyone have the manual for this? Can’t find mine and can’t get it working
Call your local Aldi. They will direct you or give you a number to call.
