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?

Great Edger

|

I bought this Edger so that I didn't have to deal with the long extension cord for my electric edger.

It took a little while to get used to it, but after the third time I was completely comfortable with it. I use it all the time now and it only takes a minute to change from a string trimmer to an Edger and no cords to deal with. I'm thinking of buying the blower attachment as well.

Easy to use.

|

In the past, I have owned products which were supposedly interchangeable, however, the ease of use left much to be desired. The Craftsman Universal edger attachment worked perfectly with my Poulan Pro trimmer, I recommend this product to all fellow home owners.

Disappointing

|

I really wanted this to work but it disappointed on a number of levels. The design utilizing a single wheel was difficult to keep on line. There was a lack of enough power to have any real impact and the motor ended up uncomfortably close to the arm and elbow. All in all the unit was uncomfortable to use

Edger

No issues hooking it up and getting the yard edged. It did a great job and the yard looks fantastic.

Great Attachment

Got this attachment to connect to our weed trimmer, works great and snaps on easily. Gives the yard a nice clean edge.

edger attachment

|

I don't know if the blade is supposed to have a sharpened edge on it but it wont edge anything as is. A 1/4 flat edge just does not cut and when trying to edge the power head gets very hot and starts smoking.

Craftsman universal edger attachment

|

I purchased the 4 cycle trimmer with this additional edger attachment. It was a great value, and the edger cuts a nice, deep groove. It is also easy to switch out the various attachments. My only complaint with it is that the dirt tends to get choked up between the blade and backing plate, causing you to stop and clean it every so often.

It is well built but it takes for while to get know how to use it the right way.

Good piece of equipment

|

Works well, attached very easily just as all of the other attachments do. Would recommend it. Be sure to wear long pants and safety glasses.

edger attachment

|

It's easy to attach and works relatively well. It does however have a tough time cutting the edge on the first run. If an edge is already established, it would get a better review.

I have used it and it is functional, versatile and does quite a good job! I shopped other edgers, I felt this was great value for your money.

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.
