ALDI rolls out its lawn mower and other gardening gear

The weather is warming up, and the grass is starting to grow, so ALDI’s lawn mower Special Buy event is here.

This Saturday (September 1), ALDI’s middle aisles will feature lawn mowers and other garden essentials, with prices that will be hard to beat.

ALDI’s 161cc Petrol Lawn Mower has a price tag of just $139 and features a 4-stroke engine with 460mm (18″) cutting width. It has an adjustable 7-position cutting height, plus a 55L hard catcher.

Expect a three-year warranty on this model for peace of mind. It’s also claimed to be equipped with an all steel deck for durability and long life, as well as easy fold handle for simple storage, and large wheels for easy handling.

Typically, petrol lawn mowers with similar features start from around $300.

Another handy tool to consider for that ideal garden edge is ALDI’s 25.4cc Petrol Lawn Edger, retailing for $149.

It features a 2-stroke engine, 224mm blade length and 5-level height adjustment, giving you the option to adjust the height specifically for your lawn. In addition, it’s equipped with a 600ml fuel tank capacity, which is fairly standard for most models of similar size.

Similarly, to ALDI’s lawn mower, this lawn edger has a foldable handle for easy storage and a three-year warranty.

Stocks are limited and the number of lawn mowers and lawn edgers that you’ll see in ALDI’s middle aisle will vary between stores.
