9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 90.

I don't like to buy stuff on line, but I needed a new lawn edger and the price was good. Picked up this Southland lawn edger at my local Home Depot(free shipping). The box was in excellent shape and the Home Depot people helped me load it in my pickup. Read the instructions and had it all put together in under an hour, attach handle and wheels, add oil, oil was included in box, you need metric wrenches. All the nuts and bolts were in plastic bags, easy to find. Runs great, thankfully I don't need the curb hopping feature, it looks kind of funky. Don't fill the gas tank completely full, gasoline needs extra space to expand when it gets hot. Great buy, Happy edging to all!!!

I intended to rate this product excellent but couldn't get the "excellent" to click/stay. Gives a good manicured edging. I've had several edgers over the years and this is the best I've had to date.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Edger Edger does great job. Takes 3-4 pulls to start when cold. Comes with wheels unattached ,and no instructions on attaching them. Look at picture on box will help you. Only real complaint is theres no edge guide to keep it tracking straight. Other than that a good buy so far.

We have had nothing but problems with this edger since we bought it about two years ago. It has only been used about 5 times, and we've replaced the carburetor twice (had to order a new carburetor and it took months to get it). Haven't used it over the winter, went to use it this spring and it worked fine one time, went to use it again on another yard, it went about 15 feet, stopped, and now it's leaking gas like a sieve and will not start again. It is a lemon!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Edger Ever I've had this edger for two years now. It can't even cut the grass or dig into the dirt. No matter how many times I've tried to fix it, I revert back to using my weed eater as an edger. Even though the weed eater doesn't edge super well, it's far better than this edger. Don't buy this!!!

The instructions caution against over filling gas tank. So, I filled to about 90% level. Ran a few minutes on a hot day--motor stopped and gas was flowing out the top of the carburator. Opened the gas tank--gas flow stopped--the gas was boiling inside the gas tank which sits on top of the motor. Waited a few minutes for gas to cool down--started right up and ran for 45 minutes until I had finished. I will probably fill tank to no more than 60% to prevent this pressure build up.

I have owned this edger for three years and I can say that I have been very happy with its operation and performance. Setting up the curb hopper can be a bit frustrating at first, but once you have done it the first time it is a breeze to repeat the set up. The only downside I can find is the availability of replacement blades, I did find an online supplier at http://www.ereplacementparts.com/blade-edgerkb21y0501-p-1861725.html
