This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Went into my local ALDI and noticed that they had some battery powered tools on offer, the ticket said orbital sander, angle grinder and saw all reduced to £19.99 from £49.99. Dont think it’s store specific as I went to another Aldi and it was the same in there.

Both only had orbital sanders left though

Well done @lscth for spotting those, great price, keep your hot deal finds coming, now you have started
Looks like a good deal. Cordless tools are great but what annoys me is, unless you stick to the same brand all the time, then you end up with 20 different chargers / batteries and then the battery dies and you can't find a replacement so you have to buy a whole new unit....

That is the down side, along with charging times if you only have the one battery.

Even worse than the incompatibility between brands is how even the same brands have diffent connectors. I got the workzone 18v sds drill, and then bought the workzone 20v angle grinder, and the batteries and chargers are totally different. Seems completely unnecessary to me when the 20v seems really the same as 18v in power - I believe the cells are identical, it is just that they have a nominal rating of 3.6v per cell in an 18v tool, and a max rating per cell of 4v in a 20v tool. Why they have to have completely different connectors in what are both aldi own brand tools is beyond me.

Although they are the same brand I believe they are made by different companies just badged up as workzone hence the different batteries. On the plus side they normally all have 3 year warranty
The thing is, there's absolutely no reason why these battery packs/tools/vacuums etc. can't use individual 18650 Li-Ion cells (like putting AA batteries in a remote control) which is what powers them all. It's a disgrace and terrible for the environment.

Can I polish my car with this?
Agree. This must be something the EU should have controlled in the past- like car bulbs that can't be changed unless you take the front off or have fingers that aren't a foot long! The hours I've spent trying to change a headlight bulb!

Yeah... and the matt look is very in at the mo.

People even use drills, just need 125 hook and loop pads and how to polish with a orbital vs random orbital polisher.
My aldi never has any tools of offer

Good deal. Just tried my local (Chorley) and they didn’t have any in stock. Ended up coming away with a cordless drill for £25 though. Classic Aldi special buys!
I have one of these (that was also marked down to £20) and it works very well. Run time is maybe 20 minutes.
Dust extraction is very poor, even when using punched sandpaper. Works better when connected to a hoover.
Great for smaller jobs.
Heated.

Hence why a cordless sander is pretty useless. Sanding by it's very nature takes ages, you can't be stopping every 20 minutes to charge it for an hour!

Depends on the project - I'm quite happy with it. And, if you have a spare battery, you just swap it over & carry on.
I had to sand a ceiling the other day (to try & smooth out some horrible artex) and was very happy not to have to deal with a cable hanging down.
I plan on buying a corded random orbital; sander for larger projects.
Edit: Also, £20 for a random orbital sander is a unbeatable value - I've never seen anything which comes close.

Is this random orbital?

Hopefully that artex was a relatively modern variant. Some of the older stuff was made with asbestos. Worth considering in future if you didn't already know this. Bet is was a very messy job either way
I popped into the Newark branch to see uf they had one. Nope, but in the glass case had the mains one, reduced from £49.99 to £4.99! I won't post it as a deal as likely a wild goose etc., but may be worth checking your local. 3yr warranty too.

Thanks, I didn't know this. I had the sander connected to a hoover, so it wasn't *too* dusty.
Much prefer corded, lifetime of cordless is so limited. I've got a corded drill I've had 20+ years you'd never get that with cordless. Also better power consistency and much lower environmental impact.
One thing to watch with a "Random Orbit" sander is the actual "Orbital" (rotation) bit can fail, so you're left with a sander that shakes a bit of sandpaper about slowly but with not much rotation.

I use a belt sander with Zirconia belts for heavy sanding, rotary with same for medium and a detail one for fine stuff. All corded
