Ferrex 20V Cordless Pole Saw Returning to Aldi

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

I’ve got a few trees in my yard that benefit from regular trimming. I have a good tree guy I call to take care of that task every few years, but sometimes Aldi sells a cordless pole saw that catches my eye.

Pole saws are good for trimming tree branches or shrubs that are up high or otherwise out of reach. They can be a safer option than a chainsaw because they might help you avoid climbing on a ladder or getting up in the tree itself.

Aldi tends to sell this cordless pole saw in the fall when people are looking to do yard cleanup during the last few months of milder weather. Here’s a closer look at the pole saw.

What We Know:

Ferrex 20V Cordless Pole Saw

The Ferrex 20V Cordless Pole Saw (Product Code: 827491) is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back at some later point. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products not currently in stock at your local store.

This pole saw is scheduled to arrive in Aldi stores on either October 1st or October 4th of 2023, depending on whether your local store sets out new specials on Sundays or Wednesdays.

The pole saw cost $49.99 at the time of publication. That’s $30 less than what the pole saw cost in the fall of 2022. It’s another example I’ve seen of Aldi quietly lowering prices on certain Aldi Finds in 2023.

That price is also a lot less than what other cordless pole saws go for on Amazon.

Here’s more information about the pole saw, according to Aldi:

  • Telescoping pole from 79″.9–118″
  • 8″ chain with no tool adjustment
  • Features auto oiler to extend chain life
  • Offers a soft grip
  • Comes with a lithium ion battery with battery life indicator

Ferrex is not a separate company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for various tools and yardwork supplies.

Aldi has not yet published warranty information about the 2023 pole saw, but the 2022 model came with a three-year warranty serviced by Positec, a common Aldi warranty provider. Positec is a Chinese-based maker of various power tools and lawn equipment. Positec also produces Rockwell Tools and WORX brands that are sold at retailers such as Lowe’s, Home Depot, Costco, and Walmart. They’ve provided warranty service on the Aldi 6-gallon wet/dry vacuum and the Aldi 12V cordless rotary tool kit.

  1. I just hope I make it to Aldi’s to purchase a Pole Saw We’ve been wanting to purchase one for a few years but never really had the money but thankfully we do this year so I’m scrambling to get dressed to get to Aldi’s to grab one before they’re all sold out

  2. Just bought the pole saw today & charging the battery (5hrs.) I think
    it is a great buy. E-bay has extra battery for $23. I will let you know how well it works.

  3. Working ok

  4. Another fantastic Aldi Ferrex tool at great price and super warranty. What is there not to like.

    Waiting for more of their products.

  5. Used it today on thin tree branches….it does NOT make a clean cut, maybe its me or the saw, I don’t know but it feels like you have to be the right height to use it comfortably too. My arm span is not tall so it doesn’t feel right or comfortable for me…I might return this.

  6. Bought, charged and used it today. It’s definitely top heavy, but that’s the nature of this type of tool. I cut a few dead limbs without any trouble. At full extension the extension pole seems pretty flimsy. Extra care should probably be taken to insure that it doesn’t bend at full extension. I did sharpen the blade and it seems to cut better. Unknown for how many cuts the battery will last. I plan on putting it to the test this weekend while hanging deer stands.

  7. I missed it this year. Either our local stores did not sell it or I overlooked them or they were sold out. I hope to see this next year. I did get the chainsaw though and hope to try it out after it stops raining.

  8. I would like to get another battery for it. Where can I purchase one. It work great and was very surprised how long the battery lasted and how much I got to trim around the yard with it. I need another battery so I can take out in the woods for my property up north

  9. I purchased a ferrex 20V cordless pole saw 2 yrs ago but the battery died. is there any way to get a replacement?

  10. I Was lucky enough to grab a Ferrex pole saw from Aldi, cheap last yr 2023. Didn’t need to use it so I stored it in the box, in my locked garage until current. Opened the box only to see all accessory boxes were empty. No charger, no Battery! They left the bar oil! I’m will to pay my stupid tax for not opening the box sooner. I can’t find info for replacement parts for this brand. Any information is greatly appreciated.

    • If it came with a warranty, I’d recommend contacting the company that services the warranty. Otherwise, you can try returning it to Aldi for a refund. If you don’t have your receipt since it’s been a while, they would likely give you store credit.

  11. Have one, use to work okay. Battery will not charge after about a year of lite use.
