Customer Reviews

9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Edger Does The Job This 4 cycle gas edger was easy to assemble. It started right up after I got familiar with the choke setting. I had not edged my yard in a long time, so it was a learning curve for me to find the edge of the sidewalk/ driveway and the grass, so I made two cuts. The first was shallow just to establish a new groove. The next cut was to finish cut the lawn edge. The edger performed very well and was easy to use. I used the edger again yesterday and was able to go right to the deeper cut. Overall, I would say it did the job in a very satisfactory manner. I have used two cycle string edgers in the past and this edger far surpasses the finish look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly sufficient. For the majority of homeowner's who do regular lawn mowing, (meaning grass is not out of control) this edger is plenty strong. Best edger I've had the pleasure to use. Don't even bother with the one's that attach to weed eaters, get this instead, it's way faster and way easier. Only beef I have is there is no gas shut off. This feature is very important for end of the season maintenance where I would run gas out completely to prevent stale gas in the carb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problem assembling as instructions were clear and easy to follow. Started first pull. Adjustm... No problem assembling as instructions were clear and easy to follow. Started first pull. Adjustments for cutting depth easily made and especially pleased with the kerb feature. Have used twice since I got it and found the handling and cut of the machine very satisfactory.
