Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LawnGuyDave Great for home use
The edger is used on a property with a 80 foot long driveway and 165 foot front. Great product for the money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyEdger Much More Powerful Than I Thought
I tried to save some money and buy the Ryobi Xpander edger for my gas string trimmer. It is really too lightweight and difficult to use if you are over 5' 6" tall. I thought I'd have to spend $300 for a gas edger but gave this a shot. IT worked unbelievably well. My sidewalks were over grown by a few inches of mostly crabgrass and this thing ate it alive. For the reviewer who said it was hard to follow the edge, that happened to me initially because it was in trencher mode. Putting it edger mode dropped the guide down in the back and it worked great. Much better than trying to string edge. I would definitely buy it again. The only complaint is that I live on a corner lot and dealing with a cord is a pain but not worth the $200 more for gas. I don't know how long it will last but it is a B&D so I expect a long time. For now I am extremely happy with it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JoeyD Strong from the start....but jury is still out.
I purchased a replacement Edge Hog for one that I purchased less than 2-years ago that, basically, fell apart under normal use. I previously had good luck with Black and Decker products (up until the last one I purchased) so I thought I would "roll the dice" again. Thus far, the performance is excellent, but we'll see.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kc215 Very good household edger
Easy to assemble and easy to use. Make sure to tighten the adjustment not so it doesn't come loose while using.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Works well, gets the job done, affordable
Works well, no challenges. Assembly wasn't as straight forward as you'd think but otherwise didn't take too long to put together. Usage is fine, cuts pretty effectivly. Just did first edging of new sod that had been growing about a year (first cut is always the most challenging). Seemed to take it on quite well. Great results. Very straight forward use. On/off, power. Blade height adjuster is pretty simple. Requires long extension cables.

This edger was perfect for the small jobs we needed to do on our property. It started easily and never hesitated. Of course our sod was so thick we had to stop a number of times and scoop it away and the manual suggested this could happen. But the next time we use it there will not be as much to cut through. Our place looks terrific. You will be happy with it. I looked at other trimmers and this one seems to even look as though it is greater quality. I read many other reviews before deciding on this one and I am glad I did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coyone Awesome edger!
I was hesitant about buying an electric edger as I have owned only gas edgers for 30 years. However as I was sick and tired of ethanol giving me non-starts on my gas machines I purchased this electric edge hog. It cuts through my thick clay soil like butter!!! : ) The depth adjustments are perfect. And cannot say enough about the blade, It is a beast!!!
