Mine arrived with the strong smell of gasoline in the tank, and a large oil stain in the packaging.. I set the edger up per directions, added oil and gasoline, and it started right up. But it wouldn't develop enough power to run the blade more than an inch deep.
I put it in the garage, and this morning found half of the crankcase oil staining the garage floor.
I suspect that they get an occasional return or piece of crap that failed quality control (if any), and just send it out, hoping that some sucker will get it.
I'm disassembling it tomorrow, and checking the whole thing out. I suspect it won't take long. And then I'm tying it to one end of a rope, and the other to my rowboat.
I disassembled the motor, and found the cylinder walls deeply scored. This engine was run with insufficient or no oil at all.
I repeat: I expect that the seller had it returned by a customer that botched it, and then just turned around and sold it to someone else, hoping (somehow) that the new buyer had a room temperature I.Q. and no real mechanical skills. I wouldn't buy a ball point pen from them without a personal inspection.
The blade is ALWAYS engaged while the engine is running, and the only way to stop the blade from spinning is to release the handle and kill the engine. This is not only a hassle, it’s DANGEROUS!
The throttle exists, but there is no way to control it outside of pushing it open with your finger. I tied a small piece of string to mine as a makeshift throttle, but it’s far from ideal.
The blade arm is not nearly as ridged as it should be and shakes and flexes when lightly pressured to one side or the other.
And began profusely leaking oil after about a month.
I have a lot of negative things to say about this edger. It is cheaply made, poorly designed, and has a plethora of opperational issues. BUT... if you are someone who is cheap like me, and doesn’t mind the hassle of doing some minor fixes, and has a small edged area or don’t use it very often, this might be the way to go. I run mine every two weeks or so along ~100 feet of sidewalk and it’s not the worst experience I’ve had in my life. But if you have any experience with a quality edger, this will be a frustrating experience. My advice is to bite the bullet and shell out for a Honda or Husqvarna (the Honda “little wonder” is a high quality machine but will cost you a pretty penny, and I would only really recommend that if you do commercial landscaping), or at the same price point of this one+/-, go with a craftsman- they’re a well made base line edger with Briggs and Stratton engine (or at least they used to be?), though not with all the bells and whistles.
All in all this edger looks nice and has useful features (sliding front wheel, curb hopping back wheel, ability to angle the blade, etc.) but is ultimately not a quality machine. Would not recommend.
Started Quick, Even Neighbor used - Liked
Being a Prime member for a while now I am disappointed that it arrived a day late. What am I paying for if it doesn't get here when it says it's supposed to be here?
