Rated 5 out of 5Â by PhilMantel Very Powerful and Lightweight!
Very Powerful and Lightweight! Some dirt did accumulate in the shroud, but it was easily scraped off with a screwdriver and I could continue working.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by duellingcarl Best edger!
Upgraded my PE-225 and it did the first edge without any issue. I just ran behind it while it cut through everything like butter. All the anti-vibration is really nice and doesn't tire me out like on the older 225.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cbrush Not a walk behind
Used this twice after recently purchasing from Home Depot. Had to order it as the stores in my area do not carry edgers let alone this top model. That's a whole other story! As for the edger it works best if the area you are edging has already been edged or cut through. I think any size motor will have no trouble cutting through grass and weeds but actually carving a path not even this 28.1 will do it easily. I like it and guess I will keep it but honestly regret not buying a three or four wheel walk behind. I think for the price this has surely let me down. Do your self a favor, buy the smaller engine it will do just as good and if you aren't concerned with portability... Buy a walk behind model.

I started edging after eight years. The PE 280 cut through the over growth with ease. The edger was very is to handle and did not bog down the motor. I own other Echo products for maintaining my lawn and should have bought this edger a long time ago!
