The WORKZONE Tools and Accessories Roundup

Last Updated:

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is a running post on Aldi’s WORKZONE product lineup, updated periodically.

This post may contain affiliate links.


Throughout the year, Aldi stocks a rotating selection of tools and work accessories under the WORKZONE private label. These are ALDI Finds, which means they’re limited-run items, and once they’re gone, they’re gone, at least until the next time they come back. Aldi seems to run WORKZONE products at sporadic intervals, so there will be times when several WORKZONE items are in store and, more often, times when there are no items in store.

We try to note who manufactures Aldi products when we can, but it’s not always clear. Some, but not all, of Aldi’s WORKZONE products are sourced through Wachsmuth & Krogmann, which also sources a number of other Aldi brands, including Visage, Ambiano, and Easy Home.

Here are our thoughts on what Aldi sells in the hardware department. If you have experience with any specific product(s), feel free to let us know in the comments. We figure that, for the most part, WORKZONE tools are meant to be equivalent to generic counterparts found in other stores. In other words, these are probably not designed for professional use. (But, hey, if you’re a professional and you use these, let us know!)

  3. Last fall I bought a workzone circular saw at Aldi. Used it a few times no problems. It was stored in the garage in the box dry and safe. I was going to use it again today but when I removed the battery from the box the battery came apart.
    guess I won’t be buying any more tools at Aldi.

  4. I bought a saw. I opened it and it fell apart. Took it back and Aldi said it wasn’t from there . I didn’t have a receipt but I know I bought it there. I will never shop there again
