Customer Questions & Answers

Will it work with a echo gas powerhead?

Asked by: cmin411
This will work with straight shaft string trimmers of any brand.

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.

Customer Reviews

Expand-It 9 in. Universal Straight Shaft Edger Attachment for String Trimmer is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced for the quality I bought the Ryobi edger attachment RYEDG11 from HD for $70 during Aug. 2016. This tool is not well-built. I think it's overpriced considering the poor quality. It was hard to operate and run along the edge. There is a metal guide that sticks down too far into the edge and prohibits the tool from rolling smoothly along the edge. I ended up cutting off the metal guide. Also, the plastic housing around the edger blade tends to get clumped up with dirt, mud, and trimmings. I ended up cutting away about two inches from the rear of the housing, which alleviates that problem a bit. Nonetheless, with my two modifications, the edger works better now.

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 2 out of 5 by from Not powerful enough when used with 40v head I purchased this product considering the convenience of the attachments that are available. I used the attachment with my 40v head. I would not recommend using this attachment for edging grass that has not been edged or that has not been edged in a long time. It cannot handle a large amount. Even with the 40v head with this attachment continuously cuts out. I have 3 different size batteries and it wears them down immediately. I would definitely go with a gas powered edger.

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 Gets the job done The edger attached easily to the power head. When I used it the first time I recognized just like others that the guide tab beside the cutter bar was so long that it interferred with the movement both forward and backward. The tab needs to be shorter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Battery Power I have had a lawn service for many so this is my first purchase of this product in a while. So far it performs as advertised and expected.
