Customer Questions & Answers

does wheel drop for curb edging?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, standing at the back of the machine looking forward, the right rear wheel drops down. On the left front there is a lever to lower or raise the front wheel.

is thus easy to walk with? I an a 73 year old lady can I use it

Asked by: toots
My wife is 75 with back and neck problems. While she was able to use it with no problem she still thought it would be too much for a woman her age to use. She said it was heavy and that it would be too much for her. I think it depends on the person as to whether they can safely use it. I suggest you go into Home Depots garden center and have one of the customer service folks help,you make this decision. They will be more than happy to assist you in making a choice that is right for you.

Can this machine be used to edge flower beds?

By this I mean, rather than hand digging the edge of my landscaped flower beds each year, will this do the trick?
Asked by: Laurie
This should allow you to edge anywhere and/anything you want. It's light weight and the wheels make it easy to push

how to change blade

Asked by: oldman
The direction booklet shows graphically how to install a new blade. It also shows how to uninstall the old one too. You can find it in the product specs of the page. The directions for this edger are also available online.

9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 182.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Edger!! Worth every penny I had an electric edger, took a lot of time to edge my sidewalk and driveway. This edger knocked it out very quickly! I even edged my neighbors yard, ha, ha. It has good power, I ran into a tough spot but which was starting to stall the engine. But you have the depth adjustment bar at your fingertips. I just adjusted up and went on my way. If I were to list a negative it would be the curb feature. It works great on the upper level and works great adjusted to the street, but if your driveway slopes sharply to the street, its kind of awkward to handle. But I powered through. All in all, a great value, good performance, and quick! Love it!!

It came in a box that had some damage but the unit itself had no damage. The assembly was easy and the instructions were easy to understand. The motor started right up and ran fine even under load. The edger did a good job on the yard edges. My only complaint is that the curb adjustment was not high enough to handle the curbs at my home and the back wheel adjustment would not hold the unit up. For the price, this was a good purchase.

When first preparing the machine for use, fuel flowed out from the tank as soon as it went in. The edger was wiped clean and returned to Home Depot for a no-hassle refund. Home Depot preferred to refund the purchase price rather than have it checked by them, or by a local independent service center; and another unit was not in stock. Maybe whoever maintains their tool rental machines could of checked it. I will purchase this same model at another vendor who can provide support for their inventory.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Product I thought this edger would be a step up from the 29cc edgers we have had in the past. But this edger was a step backwards. The most important part of the edger--the blade apparatus--was crooked and it sounded like a grinder on our sidewalks instead of an edger. Luckily no concrete was harmed in the testing of this product. Unless we just got a bad one--stay away from this edger!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice edger The Powermate 79 cc Walk Behind Gas Edger is a good value and is easy to assemble and use. The front wheel adjustment assembly was bent in shipping and had to be hammered into the correct position. The assembly hardware was also loose in the box. I think this was a shipping issue as there were punctures in the box. Assembly, with bending the front wheel lift part back into place to me less than 30 minutes. I then ran the edger up and down the drive, about 120 feet total. I did not use the enclosed oil as I use synthetic oil in all of my power tools that require oil. I was told that synthetic lasts longer and stay fresher in the colder weather.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An absolute beast. Not recommended. This gas edger is an absolute beast. I'm not a small man (5'11", 200 lb.) and have done yard work my entire life, but this was something else. I had to manhandle it through my St. Augustine grass to edge the perimeter of my yard. I ended up having to pull it towards me to finish. I got a huge blister on my hand from all this. The wheels are simply too small for such a heavy edger. A job that normally took me 10 minutes took 30. I'm not kidding. I also had to jury-rig the wheel height adjustment with a rope because the locking tab wouldn't lock - it was too loose to support the wheel! I returned it the next day and bought a Troy Bilt from Lowes, which does the job just fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Powermate PWLE-0799 Edger is 1 year old and the carburetor is leaking gas and running poorly. When I took the carb. bowl off to check for trash, I found the gasket dry rotted and cracked allowing dust and trash to get inside. The bowl gasket was not available for purchase. I tried to purchase a new carburetor and the model A100626 is no longer available. The gas leak is a safety hazard for fire because I store it in the garage. They have no replacement recommendation. I will have to go buy another edger and I will be careful with what I purchase this time. There are several edgers on the market that uses this same carburetor and I will not purchase them either..

I have had for about 2 years, worked okay for a couple years, but my main complaint is it is underpowered. Bogs too easily, you have to drive it gently or it will just die. Main reason for this review is I am disappointed with it started having carb issues with dripping gas out of the carb overflow like crazy. Have had the carb apart a couple times but cannot correct it. Now having trouble finding a replacement carb.
