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.

I bought this attachment because I thought it would be very easy. It's not for me getting the attachment on and off is very awkward and hard to do. As far as edging it's fair but I have to work very hard at getting a clean edge and sometimes that doesn't work. It doesn't go deep enough or maybe there's something more I should be doing. I made a shoulder strap from an old golf bag and that helped to take some of the weight off my arm it is heavy after while. I'm buying one less combersome. I use the weed wacker all the time and have no problem with that so this will sit now. Anybody want to buy a used one?

Works great

I only used this Craftsman Edger Attachment once, but it saved me so much time. We have a long corner lot, so I wish I bought this years ago!

I have a really nice lawn edge now!

I bought this unit a couple of days ago and edged for the first time with it last night. Just so you know, I attached it to a Snapper 28cc trimmer. Also my sidewalks were edged about 5 - 6 weeks ago with an electric edger so they weren't over grown. It did pretty good. There were several spots where the blade stopped turning and I had to go really slow but I got through it. After my first pass I did go back and do a second pass. Obviously that went really fast and cleaned up a few spots I had left. It took me about 1:30 to do all of my sidewalks with both passes. I live on a corner lot so we have a lot. It took me about 3 hours to do it with the electric trimmer but it was a little more dense at that time. This unit does have a sidewalk guard but I did hit the curb many times anyway especially on the second pass. Overall I am happy with it. I think if I do it once a month now that I have this it shouldn't take me long to get a really nice edge. It looks great right now!

Great tool.

I bought this tool hoping it would do what I needed it to do. It delivered. Great tool at this price point. Easy to install. Works great. I'm a novice user. I had zero problems. Yard looks great now.

edger

takes a lot of getting used to wobbles, and chokes up even when using it weekly, cannot understand why even after tightening the shaft tensioner it would not run without shaking

Edger attachment

item is easy to attach to my craftsman weed eater, I need to get to using it a little more to get the hang of handling it, but it works great once I got started, it cuts real good.

This edger/trimmer is very fast cutting and it is an improvement on the older model I had.

As long as it's partnered with a weed whacker that has the power to drive the accessories, it works as well as an edger for at least half the price.
Easy to attach and detach from the weed whacker and balanced well enough that I do not use the strap.
Absolutely love it.

Warranty doesn't cover attachment

Good idea. Be careful about breaking the inner energy transfer cable. My other one broke.

New and Improved Craftsman Edger

If you haven't purchased the new and improved craftsman edger, now is the time! It now has a guard, that makes the job so much nicer! We love the improvements that have been made.

Edger

Edger is a little difficult to control when attempting to edge overgrowth(first time edge.) Once the initial edge is trimmed, the edger is much easier to handle when used periodically.

Great product but could use better design

I owned this product for over a year now. Works well but only problem I have is the head always coming loose and starts to wobble from vibration of the edger. Would think it would be better if they would have added a lock key or something so to keep it from wobbling.

Great buy

I needed an edger that provided flexibility and this model attachment does everything I need. Able to edge along concrete walks due to the stop provided on the attachment that allows clean edges. This model is also lightweight and easy to manage. Wheels roll on top of the concrete drive or walkway making it easy to guide and maintain a straight line.
