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.

Cannot get the unit attached to new craftsman trimmer

I'm having an issue attaching the unit to my craftsman gas trimmer. When i remove the string trimmer part the connections do not match the edger attachment. Model 79447. Both are left with male connections.

Great Addition to Craftsman Gas Trimmer


This attachment is absolutely AWESOME ...a must have for anyone who needs to trim along their driveway, sidewalk or curb. Not only does the edger attachment do a much neater job than the string trimmer, it gets the job done 90% quicker and saves $$ on the cost of replacement trimmer string.

Craftsman Gas Trimmer


Well this is our 3rd one over a 10 year period that we have purchased this same product. The product works good gets the job done, but where it connects to the main thing always breaks and to buy the part to fix it is just as expensive as buying a new one. My husband likes this item for edging. I would recommend but I would also tell the person the problem with it.
