Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Powerful and Lightweight! Very Powerful and Lightweight! Some dirt did accumulate in the shroud, but it was easily scraped off with a screwdriver and I could continue working. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best edger! Upgraded my PE-225 and it did the first edge without any issue. I just ran behind it while it cut through everything like butter. All the anti-vibration is really nice and doesn't tire me out like on the older 225. April 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not a walk behind Used this twice after recently purchasing from Home Depot. Had to order it as the stores in my area do not carry edgers let alone this top model. That's a whole other story! As for the edger it works best if the area you are edging has already been edged or cut through. I think any size motor will have no trouble cutting through grass and weeds but actually carving a path not even this 28.1 will do it easily. I like it and guess I will keep it but honestly regret not buying a three or four wheel walk behind. I think for the price this has surely let me down. Do your self a favor, buy the smaller engine it will do just as good and if you aren't concerned with portability... Buy a walk behind model. May 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Where have you been? I started edging after eight years. The PE 280 cut through the over growth with ease. The edger was very is to handle and did not bog down the motor. I own other Echo products for maintaining my lawn and should have bought this edger a long time ago! July 7, 2014
