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 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.

Not easy to use.

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

Easy edging

|

Used just once so far, but very pleased. Meets expectations. Easy to set up and use. Easily cut through St. Augustine grass runners, using my 27cc Craftsman grass trimmer. Pretty easy to guide using alignment features. Replaces a very old 3-wheel 4-cycle grass trimmer on its last legs.

Edger

|

I bought a combo craftsman that has different attachments and the edger stopped working, so I bought this replacement. It works as good as the original that came with mine. It cuts very sharp and leaves nice edging along sidewalks.

Great Edger

|

This is my second trimmer edger attachment from Sears. Bought one about 10 years ago but gave it away when I moved. New gas trimmer this year so I needed and edger. Works great. Works exactly as I expected. Hope it lasts as long as my first one.

Don't waste your money!

|

Purchased this thinking of convenience, but it would not cut. Every time it hit the grass it stopped. Could not get the darn thing to edge. Returned in, spent a few more buck and bought a gas trimmer.

Poor Design, would not recommend.

|

Attached easily, but the screw that holds the attachment on the pole fell out after 3 uses. Tried to put back in, no luck keeps falling out. Poor design!

Easy to Use

|

Make sure you buy a 27cc or bigger WeedWacker. The 25cc WeedWacker didn't have enough power.

Craftsman Edger

|

My old edger died on me and I needed to find a replacement. I recently bought one of those gas trimmers (yes its a Craftsman) with interchangeable attachments. I went online, searched for edgers, the Craftsman Edger Attachment was on the front page, added it to cart, ordered it and within three days it was delivered to my doorstep. Works GREAT!!! Right out of the box, easy to install, easy to uninstall. No issues, does everything my old edger did. Its comes with a “hanger” cap so I can hang in on my wall in the garage.
