The Ferrex Electric Chainsaw is Coming Back to Aldi

This post is an open thread and contains affiliate links

It’s fall at Aldi, which means it’s a time when we’re likely to see some tools, gear for getting the yard work done, and even some home improvement products.

The discount grocer recently dropped a cordless pole saw into its middle aisle. The latest weekly ad showcases foldable workbenches, multipurpose dollies, weatherstripping and door draft sealers, motion-sensing battery-operated lights, and even surround heaters.

There’s a well-known meme about a person going into Aldi and coming out with random products, including a chainsaw. True to form, an electric chainsaw is among the home improvement gear in the weekly ad.

What We Know:

Ferrex Electric Chainsaw

The Ferrex Electric Chainsaw (Product Code: 827505) is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back again at some later time. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are not currently in stock at your local store.

This is scheduled to arrive in stores on either October 15th or October 18th of 2023, depending on whether the weekly ad at your local store goes into effect on Sundays or Wednesdays.

The chainsaw cost $29.99 in October of 2023. That’s a $5 drop from the last time Aldi sold this. That also looks like a pretty good price compared to other electric chainsaws.

Here’s more information, according to Aldi:

  • 14″ bar and chain
  • 9 amps
  • Can cut 13″ diameter trees
  • Oregon bar and chain for wear resistance
  • Visible oil tank window
  • Metal bumper spikes for clean cutting
  • Rubber grip handle and chain brake feature for added safety
  • No tools needed for chain adjustment

Ferrex is not a company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for various tools and workshop gear such as rotary tool kits, wet/dry vacs, cordless screwdrivers, and even cordless lawn mowers.

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t purchased this chainsaw, so we don’t know how well it works. Also, while previous chainsaw models came with a warranty, Aldi has not yet published information about whether this year’s chainsaw comes with a warranty. We write open threads to provide readers with a place to discuss Aldi products.
