There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
After searching for a replacement edger and considering a variety of models, I returned to the McLane Edger. The new edger is very similar to the old one. However, the engine has a better air filter and a manual choke (what a blessing). This makes the edger so much easier to start. Quick starts are rule, just one or two pulls on the recoil cord. The throttle, as pointed out in other reviews, is hard to adjust. The good news is, just set it and forget it. The edger also has a kill switch (i.e., an on-off switch). Therefore, since you have a manual choke, you really don't have use the throttle much.
My only disappointment is that it does not have a curb height adjustment like some edgers. It would be nice to have one, but unless you have a lot of curves around corners to edge, this edger easily does the job.
I only replaced the v-belt that drives the edger blade one time with my older McLane edger. I expect the belt to do just fine and last a long time. As with any Briggs & Stratton engine, change the oil once a year (I use full synthetic oil) and use premium fuel (it costs a bit more, but the engine loves it).
I order my blades in bulk from eBay or Amazon to keep the cost down. The edger is bulky, but it does a great job.
Only 2 minor complaints: 1) It would be nice if it came with a bottle of oil like some other brands do. I had to make a trip to the store before I could use the edger. 2) I'm glad I read the other reviews before I bought it. The fast/slow control does only go half way down the slot before it stops. I was just about to push harder on the lever to make it go to what looked like full speed when I remembered the other reviews. Why they made a slot with about 3" of travel between the slow and fast settings, but only allow the speed lever to move 1 1/2" is beyond me. Makes no sense and certainly would cause someone to think they had to force the lever foreward to the end of the slot.
And, although there was nothing wrong with the edger, the packaging was damaged when it arrived. the box was smashed and torn, and the large staples used to hold the flaps down were torn out and the box poorly taped back together. The edger was supposed to come with 2 manuals: 1 for the edger itself, and 1 for the Briggs and Stratton engine. The manual for the engine was missing. Since I needed to add oil before I could use the edger, I had to call McLane customer service (they were very prompt answering the phone) to find out what grade and amount of oil to add.
