Answer: 
There is no user-controlled throttle. The engine runs at a pre-set speed of 3,600 RPM controlled by a governor. As the engine comes under load, the governor automatically applies more throttle to keep the RPM at the optimum level.

Answer: 
It is a four stroke, so you do not mix gas and oil.
Put nothing but gas (ethanol-free recommended) in the gas tank and oil in the crankcase.
Mine did not come with oil. It takes SAE 10-30 or straight 30 weight oil.

Horsepower rating is not shown -- only a torque rating of 3.1 foot-pounds. The engine provides more than enough power for this edger on my heavy St. Augustine grass..

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by powermate This unit couldn't have worked better! It took me about 10 minutes to put it together and started on the 1st pull. I like that you can adjust front wheel closer to a blade it give more stability in edger for those with harder soil I get this unit because it was the only one in this price range that had the curb adjustment feature and it worked very well, also like the option that you can choose the different angle 15 degree left or right. Next up will be to see how this unit performs in edging my beds. I would recommend this edger to anyone in the market for an edger. The massage to a Powermate please pack up those loose hardware in a ziplock bag so the hardware do not scattered through the box during the shiping. May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lawn edger After reading many reviews, I purchases this model. IN the main it works well. My only issue is that it is not easy to start. Need to pull 8 to 10 times before it fires. That is what kept me from giving it a 5 star rating. Assembles quickly and easy to read directions. More adjustments than I probably would ever need, but nice to know they are there. October 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor performance Returned this product after the first use. Features, quality, ease of use are all good, it is not very powerful and just does a very very poor job. September 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by survey on edger I was not happy with the quality of the wheels...very cheaply made...they bent tight away. October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer delivered to local home depot. Quick delivery. Excellent customer service. Assembeled it in 20min. Started right up! I have a large corner lot. I gave it a hek of a break in. Works great. Highly recomend!!! May 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Control Disappointment The edger was nowhere ready to use 'out of the box'. In fact the fuel line was not connected. The idle was way too low and had to be adjusted before it would run. Luckily, my husband is a mechanic and it was more of a hassle than a problem. But, for the average buyer that has no 'mechanic on duty' this purchase would have been a huge disappointment. September 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Will never buy another Homelite product Bought this edger, used it 1 season, 1 day after warranty expired the carb started to leak. Went to Home Depot where I bought and they gave me the 800 number for Homelite. Called and talked to rep who said to email him the serial # info which I did and never heard another word from them. I now have to figure out how to fix the carb by myself and/or have a small engine mechanic fix it for me. Looking on-line it appears that I am not the only one with this issue. I will not buy anything from Home Depot or Homelite again. September 4, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment Have had mine for a little over a year now. Does a great job....if you can get it to start. September 24, 2016
