Absolutely love it, so easy to use no petrol, noise or cord. Battery lasts it takes me 45 min. and it is still going. Have not had to rewind he spool yet but I am hopeful that it will be easy, we shall see.
Purchased in January 2021.
Have used a number of the same model for years.. pluses and minuses.
Have found the tools to perform well and the batteries 20v. charge quickly and run for almost an hour. Minuses are chiefly to do with the spool which is extremely badly designed and hard to find correct size line.. No tool is provided to unlock the spool after useage run out for replacement. . This then necessitates jamming a screwdriver or similar under the spool to hold while anti clock twisting.. Broken or worn down tiny plastic locking flanges if you are not a bit handy with repair (I am a bit) can render the spools unusable. The bump butto...n end of spool can also wear down or shear off.. I mainly use mine for trimming front , small back lawn area and nature strip.. I have had 5 pack up completely even after nursing the spools with repair along for a bit longer.. The batteries appear infrequently ( particularly during covid) with the designs of same and charger bases changing over the years.. I have never attempted to pursue the guarantee with the manufacturer which looks onerous but currently am about to attempt as the latest insult of packaging purchase of new item with other unwanted items is frankly ridiculous.. I considet myself a fairly loyal customer but the ability to purchase spares and to deal with an inhouse guarantee and replacement policy has me now about to purchase a ryobi or Ozito model.. The batteries while still working will continue to be used with other tools in the range.. Would be interested to hear from the aldi/gardenline people on their policys and thinking re their future releases of these lines. Happy with my drill etc which also use the batteries..
Purchased for $100.00.
Light device - OK for light use
Recently bought this line trimmer with the hope I could move away from my petrol units.
I have used it a few times, but not enough to have to refill the line.
Light; Quiet; easy start/stop [no need to pull starter cord]; easy to store; easy to charge without need to store petrol.
Overall a bit short from me - i felt i had to almost stand immediately onto of the weeds to cut them (I'm ~ 179 cm tall).
I felt it struggled when dealing with tall or thick grass.
Struggled when dealing with thick ground coverings - didn't provide a clean edge.
May become a bit expensive when factoring a charger & battery (say extra $50-80)...
Purchased in October 2019 at ALDI for $70.00.
Not worth the aggravation
You get what you paid for; battery doesn't last; now the battery might make for 5 minutes and that is on a full charge... Absolutely hate it; would never purchased a Gardenline product again; no wonder this product is discontinue.. bought at Aldi.. Total waste of money and a waster of my time.

Gardenline 36v Grass Trimmer
I initially brought this with the intention to try and return, as I believed that it would not be any good. 18 months later I still have it, as its proven its worth when used on well kept lawns. I use it once a fortnight and its takes around 20 to 30 minutes to trim my whole lawn.
Oh so easy!
I hate doing edges and refused to use a noisy two stroke petrol trimmer--even if I could start it. Battery operated is the way to go. Press the trigger and you are away. So quiet, so easy to use and when you're finished just recharge it and its ready for next time. We have quite a few edges and the battery hasn't run flat yet. Had it running for about an hour. Quite light at 4.0kg. Easy for older person to manage. Plus 3 year warranty.
Not expensive $149, very quiet, long running time. no cords to pull, just press trigger
Not a thing
Questions & Answers
Where can I find the line for the 20V Trimmer? In all local stores I has tried, they don's stock a line small for the holes in the line holder.
I actually purchased two spools from Action Spares in Sydney. Think their number is 1800777137. I ordered two spools, which broke not long after purchase - both of them - but I'm giving it one more go. You can order the spool cover and the spool, or just the spool with the line if you don't need the cover. The little plastic bits that stick in the slot keep breaking. The part number for the 20V battery trimmer is 55392-4 for the Cover, and 55392 for the Spool. Hope this helps.
I just phoned and reordered. Spoke with Kay this time. I rang the above number and they transferred me. Action Spares for Gardenline spares is 1800465070. They're in Smeaton Grange NSW. I ordered two spools, two covers and two springs. The postage has gone up since I ordered in May. It's now $15; that's why I ordered doublje.
I found out that the reason mine was breaking was I wasn't hitting the silver spool feed button up and down directly with the trimmer going. If you don't do that that causes the spool catches to break.
How do I perform Line replacement on Aldi Gardenline trimmer?
The cutting head of my 20v line trimmer has a plastic clip broken off. Are replacement parts available and at what cost. The trimmer can not be used as the head keeps flying off.I have had this trimmer about 18 months.
I believe there is a 5 yr warranty for this. Get onto the Aldi site, and contact customer service.
This is likely to be positec group.com
See my response to Don G and Noel. Action Spares, Sydney sell. 1800777137. $10 postage, so I bought two sets, cover and spool with line included.
Action Spares have two areas. If you ring the above number they'll transfer, but the number below is the number I just received on my confirmation order. I dealt with Kay.
This phone number will get you through, but the direct numbers, which I just found out after ringing and reordering is 1800465070. I ordered double of everything - springs, covers and spools. Postage has gone up - it's now $15.
Hope this helps.
