Rated 5 out of 5 by from this edger is awesome I wish I would have bought this thing years ago, I've always used a string trimmer to edge around my property. Since I bought this edger, my edges look so much neater along my sidewalks and driveway. I am very happy with this edger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well around the bottom of tress where grass grows. Does not work well around rock walls or cement. Blades don't hold up. I will use it in areas with no rock walls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product does not cut well and difficult to use. After going over same area two or more times the lawn is still not well trimmed Product does not cut/trim well. Have to go over same area several times and it still not trimmed well. Difficult to use and guide

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trimmer head clogs with grit fast. This trimmer is fairly light and easy to start. The motor is fairly quiet.The biggest problem has been the trimmer head gets clogged with grit very fast. This might contribute to the trimmer line getting stuck together inside and not feeding out properly. Having to disassemble the trimmer head each time to extend more line is, while not too difficult, is annoying at minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Great bang for the buck. Starts right up everyone. Does everything I need it to do. I do mowing/light landscaping for side work and I’ve never ran into a problem. Only thing is it slows up on thick patches but other than that A+
