Seems like a dud

Brand new filled 40:1 mix. Can't start for love or money. Read one review that said start switch was upside down. Will try with off instead of on but not hopefully. Have tried to start for 1 hr.

Bought for $99 a few months ago first used last week had trouble starting switch in wrong position cut 5 to 6 Tonnes of Jarrah dead tree dia mostly 25 to 30 inches no problem so far its paid for its self . Jarrah firewood $350 to $450 a tonne thats if you get a tonne ask a wood merchant to go on a weigh bridge. .Still have the old Aldi 2017 model works well. Both saws cut better than a Stihl of similar power.Bought a Homelite from Bunnings $150 a lot less power wont start when hot. Worked falling pines when i was younger daily quota was a semi load start at 5am finish 12 00 1 00pm have had a bit of experience with chain saws.

Faulty Product

published

I bought one of the current Aldi Ferrex 46cc chainsaws from the local store. It refused to start and run after multiple attempts, despite following the instructions. These, by the way, were confusing.
The chainsaw would occasionally start briefly then stop at best. Otherwise it was dead.
The chainsaw was returned and willingly replaced by the store.
Exactly the same problems with the second item!
There was definitely a manufacturing problem with both chainsaws, possibly with the ignition system, spark plug or carburetor.
Returned for a refund. Not a good example of Aldi's choice of products.

Purchased in at Norwood, SA for $50.

Has only started twice in 10 attempts. Spark plug changed to quality brand. Never offered a refund even after asking. JUNK!!! I will buy a brand name now and never look back.

Excellent for $199

published

Model : Ferrex 4 stroke
Bar : Oregon 16"
Price : $199

Ok after using my stihl 4 stroke for many years and if i recall paying excess of $700 at the time i decided for the hell of it to buy the Aldi Ferrex 4 stroke ( with the intention to use it for camping ). It is a great little saw which gets the job done. what i did notice it uses the engine oil as bar oil so watch the oil levels. It cuts clean and is a good size ( easy 2 handle ) it does not have the grunt of a stihl saw but it is very very capable of getting the jobs done around the farm / bush etc.
Over all

Ease of use 9/10
Price 10/10
cutting 8/10
Well worth the money. if you dont want to spend BIG $$$$ on a top brand saw.

A smoother saw sound with constant power

Excess barlube output and episodic start problems. When in good mood, very nice to use.
Cuts to full bar length and holds tension well. Cannot find crank oil fill/ empty plug.

It never started - the chord broke and when I fixed it still wouldn't start.

published

Chord broke on the first pull. I wasted time fixing it, re-read the instructions twice but I could not get it to work at all. Tried time and again to contact Aldi and got nowhere. What a waste of time and money.

good prototype. ... thats all..

published

I had to try a 4 stroke chainsaw. Not keen that engine oil serves as chain bar oil too. When idlying and also cutting, it sends out a spray of oil wherever you point the saw. Very messy. Also leaks when not in use. Relatively easy to start and I have cut small ; up to 120cm ; and it works for a few hours before it overheats and we both have a rest. Powerful, and could handle a larger chain.Needs to be run monthly , otherwise the fuel gums up and starting is difficult and revs are hard to build. The idea is great , just needs some decent seals and fine tuning.

Bought my Ferrex 16" saw at Aldi for $99 a year ago as a back up saw for my twenty year old Husqvarna - TBH I didn't expect much for 99 bucks but now it's accounted for about 5 tons of firewood it no longer owes me anything - Just changed the OEM chain which wasn't the best and now with a decent one it cuts like a champ - Mainly cutting Iron Bark and Red Box Gum usually up to about 12" in diametre - Had no issues with starting cold or hot but it can leak chain oil a little if l leave it full to the brim - Bottom line is if you feed it fresh fuel keep the air filter clean and look after the chain it's a good little saw for occasional DIY use.
