It would be interesting to know if the packaging or instructions give a clue as to who actually manufactures these Workzone chainsaws. If anyone reading this purchases one of please let us know in the comments below.

      1. Label also shows 0845 number – No longer in service, and a website which also appears to have been abandoned. I just need basic operating instructions, so will try Aldi & Lidl for contact details, as they still seem to be handling their products

  1. Purchased one yesterday and after a grueling 5 hours of sawing no problems! Top oil up hourly on continious use check & adjust tension that os it! Simply Brilliant for the money

    1. Dan how noisy was your chain saw? Bought one and tested the motor and it sounded rather noisy. Took the chain and bar off and only slightly quieter, sounds as if several loose nuts rotating inside the motor. Wander whether to return it or not??

      1. Mine sounds exactly the same – like it’s running with gravel in the gearbox. I’m on this site because I’m searching for someone else with the same ‘problem’ – and found you. I’m guessing they must all be like that.

  2. Bought one over a year ago – powerful but a bit noisy/ropey!– It’s had a bit of use – it just today started throwing the chain – On inspection found the rotor bearing has totally disintegrated! – Metal confetti splattered inside the casing and damage to the plastic housing holding the bearing in.

    Will try to get a replacement bearing from Aldi Service (0845 693 977) – Last time a bit went (the tensioner) about 5 months ago, they sent me a replacement they salvaged from one of their ‘Returns’ free of charge.

    Who knows – I may get lucky !!!

  3. I have a workzone ksi 2000 require a new chain,have searched internet but all chains are either 16 ins or 18 inch,the ksi2000 chain is 20 ins,any idea where to get one from anyone?

    1. Most mower shops will make you up a replacement chain. I had to get my aldi work zone a new Oregon chain last year from my local mower shop
