I just finished edging over 200 feet of concrete sidewalk that had not been cleared in many years. The edger had no problems cutting through the mess which contained many stones. The blade is still in excellent condition after this heavy workout. The sidewalk is curved and it was easy to navigate. I thought I might need a more powerful edger but this worked just fine.
I purchased this edger in April 2010. The first season it started with the pull rope. The beginning of the second season it took the power drill to start and then mid summer it regressed to power drill plus starting fluid to start. Finally it would not start at all. Since it was still under warranty, I took it to the Sears store where purchased. They do not evaluate it where you bought it. They ship it to Dallas. A customer service rep called me about a week later and said it needs a new short block because it was caused by too much or not enough oil. I find this hard to believe since it did not smoke at all. It was only hard to start. The rep could not direct me to anyone higher and said my option was to send it back. After it arrived at the Sears store where I purchased, I spoke with the manager who read from the service report what they found. No leeway. None of we are sorry that our edger is a piece of dung. She did ask if I wanted to purchase a new edger. Are you serious? I told her I will buy one from ********** or ********** said but their warranty is not as good as ours. Geez, how much worse can it be when a warranty is not really a warranty. Bottom line -- I have a Sears lawnmower, blower, power washer and many power tools. But you know what? Never again will I purchase anything from Sears.
Recently purchased: So far it is doing the job intended. It is not as easy to start as the description implies. I pull the rope, no speed starter with a drill, yet. It is more complicated than the electric edger I owned previously, but hopefully will last a long time. It was easy to order and came to my home in good condition. I was pleased with that, and of course free shipping. Much better than going to the mall!
Have used this product before and it is wonderful
I like it so well that I edge my curb and driveway and my neighbors on both sides. They seem to love it also, I wonder why.
love it thank you
Easy to assemble, power is adequate for routine edging of walkways and driveways.
Only used this twice since purchased. Perfect for residential use. If you have a large property and would be using this edger for long period of times, I would recommend a more powerful edger. It takes me approximately 30 minutes to edge my property and this does the job! For under $200 dollars it seems to be well worth it. My only complaint would be, I think it is a little under powered.
I used it to do my lawn. Love it
