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.

great addition

Thought that tis attachment perform very well. I had my doubts, I have used thing with detachable pieces before and was disappointed, This worked great, just a little more work than a regular edger, but still it was fantastasic.

Edger attachment works with 33cc older model

|

Since I have now used it only twice, I can not comment on the durability of the unit. However, when coupled with 33cc powerhead it is a very useful tool. I used it to edge overgrown sidewalks and it easily cut a path. I am very pleased and would recommend it.

I haven't used my trimmer yet because the started code mechanism broke after using it 3 times !! Good news it's under warranty, bad news you take it to some contracted repair man that may take weeks to fix

Last Attachment I ever need

|

I now have all the attachments for my gas engine. I was particularly happy with this edger as my old was a lot of work and this is very easy. I now have the weed whacker, rototiller, pole saw and edger. I am very happy with them all.

I took about 35 minutes to adjust the cutting blade at the depth I wanted,only three try's to get it to the depth I wanted.It was so easy to swap the shaft.It's a breeze to make a perfect edge.I love it.

Craftsman Edger

|

I purchased this product I was a bit sceptical if this would work or not. I tried it for the first time it took me a bit to figure it out but once I got it going it worked great. I would recommend this product to anyone. As a matter of fact my brother inlaw saw the way it worked and went to pick one up. Extremely pleased a must have.

Great addition to the 32cc 4cycle trimmer.

|

This baby is a must have for curb and sidewalks.
Our 16000 sqft property has a lot of sidewalks and curbs. This baby performs like a champ when coupled to the 32cc 4cycle gas trimmer, love that it came with the tool to lock blade when removing blade to sharpen when needed.
Great guard and ease of adjustability. Very happy with it this attachment.

I've had other trimmers in the past, but this one is so easy to use and makes my yard look like the professionals did it.

Works Great BUT Take Note of Life Expectancy

|

I purchased this edger attachment to accompany my Craftsman 32cc gas trimmer. Easy to use and nice/clean groove along the driveway, curb, and sidewalk. My only disappointment is with the boom assembly (long pole that mates with the trimmer) and the pin that locks into the trimmer pole. This pin broke loose literally within weeks of the 2 year warranty coming due. The parts were covered BUT labor was not and it took approximately 3 weeks to service. Now roughly 2 years later, the same pin has broken again. The boom assembly can be purchased for approximately $80 and I can repair it myself OR a new edger attachment assembly runs about the same. Granted it averages out to a cost of about $40 per season... it's more about the hassle and inconvenience of a poorly designed attachment. We all know the Craftsman brand continues to plummet (in terms of quality) as the majority of the products are manufactured overseas. I wouldn't mind paying more for a product that was engineered/manufactured with the quality of the Craftsman products my father and grandfather enjoyed back in the day. This attachment works great... for 18-24 months. I use the unit once a week during mowing season. I'll be heading to my local Sears store to purchase a replacement edger attachment assembly. I'm somewhat committed due to the 32cc gas trimmer I purchased; it works great.

Works Great!!

|

I used it for the first time the other day with my 29cc four stroke Craftsman Trimmer. I did the sidewalk in front of my house and back patio. The sidewalk area hadn't been done in a long time and took two passes to get it looking awesome. I started at the highest blade setting and then lowered it down about 3/4" on the second pass. Just go slow and keep your revs up.

great to use

|

I have used it once so far and its awesome, easy to snap in and adjust. Great edging capability, it was really easy use. I must admit I had my doubts at first, but I will continue to use it and see how it goes.
