Questions & Answers

does wheel drop for curb edging?

Asked by: cootertx
Durrr ... In the features listed by HomeDepot it says "Curb hopping feature allows the front and rear tires to drop for a clean edge" So yes, you can drop the rear tire so the front tire rests on the curb while the back tire is lowered to street level for a wonderfully clean edge.

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
Yes' I did mind recently' does a could job. Must advise though' start out slow meaning not to deep until one gets used to the machine's cutting power. I will caution though if your flower bed has curves or round about edges' place close attention in adjusting the machine in these areas in making a good cutting line.

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.

9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 297.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the homeowner's that are serious about edged lawns and gardens Overall, this is a great edger and makes clean edges but takes some getting used to. It is a bit heavy, somewhat bulky and learning how to use it takes practice. Prior to this, I used my weed trimmer which had an edging wheel. I did not enjoy dragging a large extension cord around. This edger solves some of those problems. I love an edged lawn, live on a corner lot and have two concrete walkways, so I need to do a lot of it. The edger comes mostly assemblied, I easily screwed on the wheels and set up the blade depth adjuster. It came with oil as well which is nice. The edger has many features, you can set the dept of the blade, height of the front tire and you can drop the right wheel for curbs. You can also change the sideways angle of the blade by 15 degrees either direction although when I adjust it left, it is clearly more than 15 degrees, maybe 30-35. I dropped the wheel for my curb once but found its easier to just keep the edger on the lawn. I am trying to save time here. Most of the edges I need to make are on curves and it takes some maneuvering. Its a pretty delicate as you are trying not to hit the concrete (while I inevitably do but leads to no major issues), but if you get snagged on a bump, it can be difficult to maneuver. The more I use it, the better I get at it. I also used this to help make a garden bed gutter around my new shed; the endgine did stall everytime the blade when more than 3" into the wet clay. If you have the room to store this and love edging, I would consider this product. Otherwise you may want to stick to something smaller.

The only downside was an unexpected (and weird) failure due to manufacturing I guess. The connector on the bottom of the gas-tank completely failed!! I pulled the edger out for this season, filled it up with gas, and all of a sudden, gas all over the machine and driveway!! The connector to the bottom of the gas-tank completely failed and was hanging. The edger has a 2-yr manufacturers warranty, so I contacted them (MAT Engine Technologies, LLC) and they sent a new gas-tank and Fuel Line Fitting / Filter (see page 24 of PDF, items 2 and 6 on the parts list). So the good news, this is a great edger ... I love it and it worked great last season. My driveway, near the curb slopes, this is a pain to edge the 2 feet. But once you move to the street and adjust the edger wheel down to do the street side curb edge, it works perfect! The cool part is that with the large triple blade, it fights through dirt, cuts a clean line, and is fast!! I loved using this edger so much (its fast and easy) I even edge my neighbors lawn, ha, ha. I read they had leaky carburetor issues as well, so just keep an eye out for that more common issue. My issue, I was told (and internet search seems to confirm) is not as common. Enjoy your edger you "will" love it for sure!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for edging sidewalks and driveways I am happy with this product and really appreciate the thought that went into the design. It has a lot of features which make this a great walk-behind edger. A notable feature is the inclusion of both a cold and warm choke. If you are starting the edger up for the first time in a day, you use the cold choke to start the engine. If you are mid-project and need to turn it off for a moment and re-start the edger, you use the warm choke. Another neat feature is the wheels have an adjustable height so you can use it on a step or raised surface if needed. The blade is quite sharp and gives you a clean cut where you are edging. The depth of the blade is ideal as it is not cutting too deep or too shallow. This edger is best used for edging paved surfaces. It can be difficult to push if you attempting to edge around garden beds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was just right for the price. It was easy... It was just right for the price. It was easy to assemble and operate. The issue I had, was for some reason the Gas cap wasn't venting and would build up pressure when stopped I had to loosen the gas cap to relieve pressure to keep the edger from flooding. The second use it was fine.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great results! Edging has never been a favorite activity of mine. My old edger wasn't well balanced and I was constantly fighting to keep it on the curb. Eventually, it quit starting and I gave up on edging with an edger. I decided to use a weed wacker over the last few years and the results were not great. To be honest, it was really obvious when comparing my lawn to a neighbors who used an edger and who didn't. The curb hop feature allows you to adjust the wheels so that 2 wheels are on the sidewalk and on is on curb give a much more stable feel when working along the curb. While it does require shutting off the edger and adjusting it the process doesn't take long. Otherwise, it acts just like a normal 3 wheeled edger. I don't know much about edgers but in trying to determine how good this one was I found it to be very comparable in terms of other features (9" blade, 8" wheels, 2.5" cutting depth, and 15 degree adjustment) at a good price price. Lastly, the 4 stroke engine is a nice feature as well so you don't have to worry about mixing oil and gas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst modern product I have purchased Buying this edger seems like betting against the house in Vegas. You either get one that runs or not.. This has been the most pitiful product I have purchased. It wouldn't start so after an exhaustive review I found that the carb had dry rotten gaskets. So I got a replacement thinking that's easy enough. It ran once just fine and now back to taking 10 plus pulls to start. The carb was properly adjust. I replaced connection gaskets, replaced the spark plug. It runs and then dies just like before the carb was replaced. I can't believe that Home Depot is still selling this product.
