Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mueller The Echo edger made landscaping our yard a breeze!
My husband used the edger to clean up the overgrown grass along our sidewalks and driveway. He also used it to make a "trench" to install landscape edging for all our flower beds surrounding our house, which made it go much more easily and quickly.
The edger is great quality, very sturdy, and starts very easily! We also have an Echo trimmer.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Reviwer Do not buy!
Let me start by saying that I have been buying Echo products for over 12 years. After having read all of the reviews I decided to try this model because of the price difference between this and the 230 model. Honestly I do not understand how it received as many good reviews as it has. The plastic blade protector gets clogged almost immediately. It jumps as it is rather light weight. It also does not have enough power once the blade makes contact with the ground. It may be ok for a small driveway but do not expect to be able to do any substantial curb work at all. The only two good features are the price and that it starts on 3 pulls like every Echo I have ever had. Thank goodness Home Depot let me return it after the first use for a full refund. I recommend spending the extra $100 and getting the pe230, even if you have to wait for it to go on sale. Just got done using the pe230 and had none of the issues that I mentioned with this model. I really can not believe the difference a few cc's and the metal guard can make. Hope this helps

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OKie Light weight and EZ to start
Runs very well without much effort to start. I like that it is light weight and has high enough revs to get the job done. The only complaint is that damp soil clogs the guard stalling the engine. Other than that, I'm very happy with the product.

I keep the older echo edger at my dads house so i got this new echo for me and my sons edging needs. Goes alongside out echo weed eater. Alot better and easier to startup vs a stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Matt Very Happy with it!
In the past I've purchased a gas Echo blower, and a gas Echo trimmer, so I wanted to stick with Echo since I've had nothing but great experience with them. This edger lived up to my expectation. If it's being used on a very overgrown lawn, the first time used will take way longer than expected.... but it is highly effective. It took about 15 minutes to figure out the best way to use it, and it works great leaves the edge with a very clean cut look. I've used it 4 times now... the first lawn edge was about an hour (for a lawn that hadn't been edged in years), and the other times I get the whole job done in about 10 minutes. Great product. I'm very happy with Echo's performance on this and their other equipment.
