Customer Questions & Answers

Does not glide smoothly, anybody modify?

Has anybody trimmed off that guide below the wheel? It makes it really have to keep everything moving along. I would have bought the Echo kit, but they do not carry it in stores, that seems like a better design.
Asked by: drbll
It's a bad design, if you have the same small area to edge you can establish a track for the guide to follow. Otherwise, cut the guide off. But cutting the guide off will probably void the warranty. Without the guide it a nice edger.

Expand-It 9 in. Universal Straight Shaft Edger Attachment for String Trimmer is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 237.

The new one is similar except that it has a guide that extends below the wheel. This guide really makes the edger difficult to use. If you have a small area to edge it would be marginally acceptable. We have 3 acres with a very long driveway and many trees to edge around. Fortunately I was able swap the old expand-it's blade guard and wheel with the new one,thus eliminating the guide, the other option would be to cut off the guide, but doing so would most likely void the warranty. Without the guide it's a great product. But having to modify it right out of the box to make it useable is unacceptable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works, but I will be returning it. My 20 year old McLane edger had recently failed and I wrongfully chose this and a Ryobi 2 stroke power head as its replacement. While the quality seems fair after only one use, I found the operation to be very messy, tiresome, and difficult. The unit does not glide along the edge with ease as many others have stated. The cut this unit leaves behind is poor. The "teeth" on the blade are already showing wear after one cut. Even with the highest adjustment I was unable to get the edge I wanted. Keep in mind that my edges are already there and I was not using this on a lawn that has not been edged in forever. I will be returning this after only one use. Home depot shipped fast as always and my online shopping experience was great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Better Solution For You This thing takes forever to use because 1) It takes a long time to edge, you have to go slowly for it to edge the grass and 2) it's constantly digging up the dirt which makes the process longer. The better solution is to buy Expand-It 18 in. Straight Shaft Trimmer Attachment Model # RYSST44 Store SKU # 811169 . Take off the guard or don't put it on, then turn it 180 degrees from the position that it is made to be in (basically upside-down) and edge that way. This will give you a perfect straight edge, it's faster and you don't have to turn your gas powered motor upside-down which will make it stall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Significant improvement from previous model This is a replacement of an EXPAND-IT edger. It is made by Ryobi (RYEDG11)instead of Homelite (UT15518E). The design looks like the Homelite model, but significant change in quality, and improvement. The blade is 9" long with cutting teeth instead of straight edge, the height adjustment is better, the wheel and blade guide works better than the old model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine for most work I bought this because I already had the power head from my Ryobi 48v string trimmer. It is surprisingly good for a rechargeable edger. It is simple to cut right along the edge of straight pavers or blocks. I also need to edge along stone blocks forming a flower bed border. That was a bit more difficult because the wheel had to roll on uneven ground where it sometimes hung up. When cutting an edge for the first time, sometimes the electric power head overheated and had to cool off. But re-cutting an existing border was much easier. I'd recommend this for the hassle-free use and value when combined with other interchangeable tools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to switch out I use this with my Ryobi s430. 3 minutes to swap out and works great for trenching. Creates a nice gap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well...with a little effort I bought this as I was tired of using a string trimmer to edge our lawn next to the sidewalks and wanted a more finished look. It took charging up the battery three times in order to finish my lawn the first time - mostly because it had a lot of work to do to clear out the grass and dirt around the edge of the lawn. It didn't quite have the power to run continuously under the workload, either, so it kept stopping after every few feet. The second time I edged the lawn, it was a different story since the first time cleaned up all of the debris - I was a able to edge the entire lawn with one battery charge and it didn't bind up at all. Overall, I am happy with the product.
