Very Good Quality Edger

I first bought a Troy Bilt trimmer and MTD edger at Lowes. Took them both back because the TB525 4-stroke didn't have enough power for the edger, but the edger was not designed well either (the rubber skirt drags on the wheel, thus the wheel didn't turn easily, an overall mess to operate). Went to Sears and found their 4-cycle trimmer to be identical to the unit I returned at Lowes, but the edger was visually much better designed and higher quality. In the end, I bought the Craftsman edger (and tiller) attachments, but went back to Lowes for a 2-cycle Troy Bilt trimmer. Since Troy Bilt = MTD = Craftsman, I might as well buy the cheaper and lighter unit (and I got bump feed standard on TroyBilt), but I highly recommend the attachments from Sears - they are differentiated.

Not easy to use.

When added to weed whacker it becomes awkward to handle and difficult to operate properly.

out of the box snap on and worked perfect with a 3 year old weed whacker!

Better than expected


When I bought this edger attachment I was skeptical. I wasn't sure if this was going to be a waste of money. I was pleasantly surprised. It works great and does what I need done.

Cannot get the unit attached to new craftsman trimmer


I'm having an issue attaching the unit to my craftsman gas trimmer. When i remove the string trimmer part the connections do not match the edger attachment. Model 79447. Both are left with male connections.

Must have tool!!!


This is one of the most prolific tools anyone can have in their Craftsman collection. An attachment that pays for itself with the finished product.
