Can this machine be used to edge flower beds?

By this I mean, rather than hand digging the edge of my landscaped flower beds each year, will this do the trick?
Asked by: Laurie
I used it to start a flower bed edge. The engine will stall if the blade is too far in soil or its thick soil. I moved slowly. You can use it to trim grass along borders as well but I find my weed trimmer better suited for that.

is thus easy to walk with? I an a 73 year old lady can I use it

Asked by: toots
Once you get it all set up and you're edging, its easy. Adjusting the wheels for curb edging can be a little cumbersome. Overall, it is much easier to maneuver than a lawn mower.

Do I have to use a gas oil mix or can I just use unleaded gas?

Do I have to use a gas oil mix or can I just use unleaded gas?
Asked by: gina
this machine has a 4 stoke engine which takes unleaded gas,... NO oil & gas mixing .. Never put "E-85" gas in it !! I've always used "ethanol free" 90 octane gas in all my equipment ..runs fine and does away with all the problems ethanol in the gas causes. Where I live, no ethanol gas is available in quite a few places, some parts of the country it's almost impossible to get. It does cost about 40 cents a gallon more, but well worth it !!

9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 382.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice edger The Powermate 79 cc Walk Behind Gas Edger is a good value and is easy to assemble and use. The front wheel adjustment assembly was bent in shipping and had to be hammered into the correct position. The assembly hardware was also loose in the box. I think this was a shipping issue as there were punctures in the box. Assembly, with bending the front wheel lift part back into place to me less than 30 minutes. I then ran the edger up and down the drive, about 120 feet total. I did not use the enclosed oil as I use synthetic oil in all of my power tools that require oil. I was told that synthetic lasts longer and stay fresher in the colder weather.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Powermate PWLE-0799 Edger is 1 year old and the carburetor is leaking gas and running poorly. When I took the carb. bowl off to check for trash, I found the gasket dry rotted and cracked allowing dust and trash to get inside. The bowl gasket was not available for purchase. I tried to purchase a new carburetor and the model A100626 is no longer available. The gas leak is a safety hazard for fire because I store it in the garage. They have no replacement recommendation. I will have to go buy another edger and I will be careful with what I purchase this time. There are several edgers on the market that uses this same carburetor and I will not purchase them either..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy... Owned this edger for 2 years. Worked fine the first summer, though very underpowered. Used it once this Spring and it ran fine for the first 5 minutes, then stopped. Completely removed the carb, cleaned it, reassembled, added fresh gas, and it worked fine for 5 minutes. Realized that the needle valve on the float is sticking. I can remove the carb, free the float needle valve and it runs for 5 minutes, then nothing. No fuel making it to the bowl. Can't find the carb or needle valve anywhere to purchase. Back to edging with my Echo weed eater. More labor intensive, but always works. This PowerMate edger is borderline garbage....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too many features Decent product for the money....but loose parts in the box, poor instructions, scratches to the painted surfaces and I think all the manufacturers have made these tools with so many adjustments that it's almost impossible for any of these units to hold up for the long haul. Between angle, wheel height, curb jumping and such, there are more items to twist, lock down, slide and adjust that over time, even if not used will cause these edgers to rattle their parts all over the driveway, sometimes found, sometimes not. IF somebody made a gas edger without all the fancy adjustments with a blade that went up and down, I'd have bought it instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good edger I have had this edger for 3 years and cannot keep it running as it should. It does not cut a "neat" line down the driveway. The edge of the grass looks hacked instead of a clean cut, even with new blades. I took it back to home depot for repair under warranty becasue the pull rope came out. They said I was to blame becasue I pulled it too hard but I did not. I have since fixed this myself as it seems to be an ongoing problem. They settled with me for me paying $10 to fix it after they had it a month. Now the carb is messed up. If I had it to do over I would look for an American made Briggs and Stratton engine and stay away from this cheap chinese made stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Edger!! Worth every penny I had an electric edger, took a lot of time to edge my sidewalk and driveway. This edger knocked it out very quickly! I even edged my neighbors yard, ha, ha. It has good power, I ran into a tough spot but which was starting to stall the engine. But you have the depth adjustment bar at your fingertips. I just adjusted up and went on my way. If I were to list a negative it would be the curb feature. It works great on the upper level and works great adjusted to the street, but if your driveway slopes sharply to the street, its kind of awkward to handle. But I powered through. All in all, a great value, good performance, and quick! Love it!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Damage in shipping Arrived damaged. Frame slightly bent by left rear tire. After installing tire it was out of alignment. Would require pounding/bending frame to align tire. Blade set to vertical position resulted in nonvertical position due to something bent that didn't need assembly, it was bent sometime in shipping. Offered to repair the problems for $50, or ship back. Homedepot.com offered $20 or I could return it to a store for refund or exchange. It's worth more than $20 to me to pack up and return. Preparing return shipping worth more than $20. Unable to negotiate for arriving damaged and resolving compensation for repair, return or replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat a proper edger It seems to me that designated edgers are a dying breed. Everybody loves to use their string trimmers, which doesn't make sense to me - it doesn't leave a perfect edge, and it eats through string like crazy. I much prefer a designated edger. This is a good product. It has enough power to cut through the dirt when necessary, and has plenty of adjustability for blade height. The wheels are also highly adjustable to work along side a curb, though I've never used that feature because I don't have curbs at my house. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is I have a little problem with the safety release on the handlebar. I will be calling Powermate customer service and I'm confident it will be resolved.
