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.

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!!

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 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.

Putting the edger was a breeze but I later realized that was the least of my problems. My first problem was with the curb hopping part of it. Switching was smooth as I had hoped it would be. It's difficult to maneuver the edger while it is set for curb hopping so going from one end of the curb to the next curb required a lot of adjusting. example: curb/driveway/curb. I figured I can deal with that but then starting it was my next issue. I'm 5"2. Pulling the starter was a challenge. The length of the pulley was too long. I was able to start it 2x but it took me several tries to get it started each time. I finally had enough of a challenge with it and decided it wasn't worth the frustration.

I purchased this and to my surprised when I opened the box, it was a used unit. The manual was missing, the wheels and gas tank were dirty. The blade was worn, chewed up and dirty. The edger was returned the same day. The associate didn't seem surprised and not even a sign of being apologetic. There was one other unit in stock and didn't offer an exchange. When I inquired about the other unit and if I can be assured it was new, I was told go open the box yourself and see. So I left and will probably look to purchase this elsewhere.

Balancing the edger to get the wheels are can be a pain (I used the Styrofoam for leverage). My biggest issue with it is that you have 3 angles you can choose to put the blade. None of which are straight. So it's hard to keep the line. It did it's job but edgers for $150 cheaper were easier to use. I'll keep trying it and return here if my opinion changes.

Drained the carb and fuel tank prior to winter storage. After the winter storage it won't start. I have spark, and fuel line has fresh fuel. Took air filter off and sprayed starter fluid inside carb. Starts with one pull, then dies immediately. So that tells me something is wrong with the carb or float. Luckily I bought the 2 year replacement. I was happy with the machine for the first year, but after storage, not so much.
