Customer reviewsWorks well--with limitations.
As mentioned in other reviews the edger is powerful but it has difficulty plowing through thick, matted turf. In my case the grass had overgrown the edges of my brick walk. It had been a couple of years since it was edged before so there were at least 3 of grass that had to be cut back. Since my lawn is irrigated and fertilized regularly the soil is always moist. This compounded the situation and made it necessary to stop every 20 or so to dig out the dirt and grass that had accumulated in the shroud the blade enclosure . I know that they warn about using it in wet grass, but it should be designed to handle earth with moisture in it. Another problem was that the back edge of the shroud kept catching on the thick grass as it moved forward, and the wheels would not ride up over the clumps without a hefty push. I had to keep rocking the unit back and forth to get it to progress and cut to the depth I wanted. This might be corrected to some degree with larger rear wheels. At any rate, with sufficient patience, the edger performs well. I have not had the problem of the blade coming loose as so many others have complained about--at least not yet. Time will tell about this. As you can see in the attached photo, the machine has cleaned up one side of my walkway quite well. Of course, you have to employ other tools to dislodge and remove the sods once they are cut free. The 80 of the one side of the walk took me about 45 minutes. This was the first time I used the edger. I expect the other side will take me less time tomorrow now that I have the hang of using the machine. I also expect that the edger will work much more efficiently once an edge has been established and all that is necessary is to maintain it in the future.
