Customer Questions & Answers

does wheel drop for curb edging?

Asked by: Anonymous
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 254.
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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIVING ON THE EDGE This is a sturdy, well-built edger. The unit came packaged well and putting it together was a snap. It is very adjustable so as to let you trim along curbs of all designs. After I added the engine oil (which was supplied) and some gasoline, it started right up. You can tilt the blade to one of several angles to keep the edged part of the lawn in a vertical position. There is also a depth adjustment. This will be a great tool when I get my flower and shrub beds cleaned up this spring and put a neat, clean edge between the beds and my lawn. I have used the handheld edgers, but using this unit is much less tiring than those because it maintains the correct angles and depths without having to do that yourself. I think that this will be my edger for many years to come.

I read the manual and it said to run engine till out of gas. I was wondering why there is no gas shut off valve. I have only used it once so far and it did an excellent job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 9 in. Walk-Behide Edger The Powermate Gas Walk-Behind Edger was easy to assemble because the instructions were very easy to follow. This edger is very sturdy. After adding the the oil and fuel it started up on the second pull. I like the tilt blade set-up. You have choices for different angles and you can also adjust the wheel in the front for edger height and depth. I will be using the edger this Spring to bury electrical wires for flower beds and islands.

Each time I have tried to start, it would not start or run very well. pull-pull-pull until my arm hurts. Tried rebuilding carb, and other tricks over time. This was a terrible purchase. I now plan to throw it away as it will not start at all.

Inexpensive but not dependable. after using it for 3 years I have removed the carb 8 or 9 times to get it to run for another few months. Extremely poorly designed carburetor.
