Customer Questions & Answers

Is it made in US?

Asked by: Oaxaca
The label on the bottom frame (top side) shows "Made in China". If you have ever shopped at Harbor Freight you know there is a range of refinement in Chinese products. Some are a great value for the money, others are meant to be disposable. The edger is not commercial grade by any means but it is a good bang for the buck. Just remember to use premium gas with stabilizer to minimize carburetor issues (run dry for storage) and the edger should easily meet the needs of the average homeowner.

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?

Gas shown in "Frequently Bought Together"

The fuel shown in "Frequently Bought Together is the incorrect fuel for this edger. The engine is a 4 stroke, the 50:1 mix tru fuel shown is for 2 stroke motors. Using the 2 stroke premix fuel in a 4 stroke can damage it. HDepot needs to correct the media. Thx .
Asked by: Orangehomeowner
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have contacted Home Depot for this correction.

How do I get A replacement carbureter?

I bought this edger brand-new from Home Depot last year. When I got it out of the shed for the first time this year it would not start. I use stable in the gasoline. I changed the gasoline, and spark plug. It will start using starting fluid but will not continue to run. I tried to order a carburetor from Powermate but was told it is discontinued.
Asked by: Mptb9
How do I get a replacement carburetor?? Seems as if you cant!!! I have taken mine to two different mower shops where they have been unsuccessful in finding a replacement carb. Both mower shops told me the same thing regarding their experience while on the phone with the 1800# found on the machine - "They gave me the run around and were very uncooperative". I tried calling myself with the same result... I will never buy this product again and/or will not recommend this product to anyone!

Why does it leak gas thru carb air filter

Just after filling it up
Asked by: Eli
Mine was like that too out of the box. Just tighten the screw with the spring on it and you will no longer have any further issues.

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 5 out of 5 by from Tough little edger Did my homework before buying this edger. My first time using the edger. It was easy to get used to. I had to cut through 3" of grass and mud. No belt slipage and the motor didn't even seem to be working hard. Motor started first time easily and restarted first pull. Took a bit to adjust tire heights for using the edger on the curd. Once the wheels were set up properly the edger worked great on the curd. The curd option was a selling point for me and I was not disappointed. Don't be afraid of the smaller size motor. This edger has all the options and then some of the larger motor units and can perform like the big boys. Real happy I eliminated my electrical cords.

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..
