    Interested in the 6-in-1 multi garden tool and 2-in-1 trimmer/brushcutter. Anyone has feedback on the pros and cons of these tools?

    Wonder if Bunnings will price match with their Ozito battery and petrol tools?

      Want to know as well, trying to use it to help my elderly mother with her gardening work, not sure if it is wired or petrol operated. I read the 2 strokes and not sure if it means its not very powerful in cutting through tree branches and doing hedging ? I have weak arms so am very keen to try the electric / wireless ones too and would appreciate someone's feedback on it.

        I have a Ozito battery powered pole hedge trimmer, I'm not sure how the petrol versions go but my battery powered one is very top heavy and puts a strain on my body (fairly healthy 30yo) even after using it for just a few minutes..

          Thanks for the feedback. Its really helpful to get feedback from someone who actually use the equipment.

          Most likely because you are not using it correctly. Lot of people uae these below their operating angles. If used straight up and down as deaigned, the weight has far less effect.

          Right tool for the right job.

            @maxwellish: I see your point there, using horizontal is definately the hardest angle on the body. We have a large hedge (about two and half metres tall and a metre deep) so can't possibly do the whole top from the ground. So I guess it depends on the users situation

      Bought the 6in1 and as a first step I tried the carrying belt. Looks to be made for kids. Anyone else tried it?

      I managed to snag a 6 in 1 garden tool today after going to two Aldi stores. The tool seems to be good value in comparison to what else is available in store and online especially when you factor in the edger attachment. In regards to 2 stroke or 4 stroke it's much for much in my opinion as both have there pros and cons if you have a look you can find some info.

      After bringing it home and opening it up everything looks to be of reasonable quality, includes some tools and a mixing bottle which is a nice touch. It did however require more assembly than I had expected but that isn't a major deal.

      Mixed some fuel and gave it a try as a trimmer, started after a few easy pulls and starts first pull when warm. Easy to start but does have some weight to the unit when swinging it around. Power and ergonomics seem good. Quality good but no idea how it will last long term but use good oil and I can't see an issue.

      The only real con I've found so far is the harness, like the other poster said it seems to suit a toddler and is absolutely useless for an adult but much better ones are avail online cheap.

    Do not purchase their garden beds. I read previous ozbargainers comments in regards to them rusting but still went ahead and bought one. My garden bed has peeled and rusted inside. I've had it for about 2 years but it already started happening one year ago. The one I bought from Bunnings which is probably at least 4 years old is still fine.

      but it says 'anti-rust steel' on the picture!

      Rusting here on mine too !!

      I find that Aldi. Garden products are not that great compared to Bunnings. Stopped buying after getting dud products. Interested in the 6 in 1 product and is it too loud? Never owned a petrol one.

      Only good thing is the 60 days return policy.

        A friend purchased a mini hedge trimmer about 20cm blade from Aldi a few years ago. Seemed to work well but I have never seen it for sale there. I would love to find one, just for box hedges. I have looked at Ryobi one+ 18-volt lithium-ion cordless battery grass shear and shrubber trimmer. Any tips, please?

          I bought that one. It has both hedge trimmer and comes with long handle with attachment to trim grass or turn it and use as edger.

          After second use trimming grass the blades crossed and had a dent/rubbing against each other.

          Returned it and bought a Ozito trimmer blower combo which is working well after 3 years.
