I take it other tools in the ferrex range have the same batteries??
Is this any good
No battery or charger, what am I supposed to do place it on my mantle piece

Yes, it's compatible with the 'activ energy' batteries. Aldi have 10+ different tools in this range now, and there's two batteries - a 20V-only battery (which only works with lower power tools) and a larger more expensive battery that can output 20V or 40V (which works will all tools).

Although the Aldi website is a little confusing, I believe this is a 'low power' tool that works with either battery.

They still sell tools that aren't compatible with this range. For example, it's NOT compatible with the 18V ferrex range that are currently in store. These are clearly marked "NOT ACTIV ENERGY COMPATIBLE" on the website. The other clear indicator is that the 'activ energy' range is Aldi's ONLY range where they sell skins (i.e. bare tools that don't come with a battery/charger) and it's also the only range where they sell the battery and charger on their own.

The idea is to buy a battery/charger, which Aldi also sell - unless you already have them. The charger is £15, and the battery compatible with this tool is also £15.

Aldi have a range of tools that all take the same "activ energy" battery, so many people already have them. As soon as you buy more than one tool from the range you're starting to save money as you don't have to pay for a second battery, and it's more environmentally friendly. Plus if the battery starts to degrade or the charger breaks (or if you want two batteries have one charging whilst you're using the other) you can just buy another one. Most tool manufacturers have ranges like this now.

No one knows yet - it's only available to preorder (goes on sale on Sunday) and this is the first time Aldi have sold it.

I have 7 other tools from the activ energy range, and they've all been good value for money, so I've preordered this.
Mine arrived today.

I can confirm this is compatible with either of the activ energy batteries - i.e. it works with the 20V battery or the (larger, higher capacity) 20V/40V battery.

It seems to work well; for grass trimming with the extension handle fitted it’s a breeze to use, and I found it easier to use that a strimmer for edging the lawn - I’m not that good with a strimmer and often end up scalping the lawn, but because this has wheels it’s easy to push it along as a consistent height. Without the extension handle it’s a nice easy tool for tidying up detailed bits.

It’s easy to exchange the grass blade for the shrub trimmer, there’s just two buttons to press and it pivots out.

The smaller 20V battery lasted more than long enough to do all the edges of my reasonably large front and back gardens.

I'd have preferred if the outer of the blades on both sides was stationary; it's a little difficult to try right up to lawn edgings, around a tree without damaging the bark, etc.

Overall good, I'm very happy with it. Bargain for £25 if you already have the battery/charge or will get other tools from the activ energy range in the future.

No, just read the whole post.
Personally, i find lidl range of tools far better build & more reliable than aldi

My car only came with 1/4 tank of fuel. Inevitably it ran out after a couple of weeks and it’s been parked on my mantle piece ever since.
