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.

9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 305.
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.

The issue I had, was for some reason the Gas cap wasn't venting and would build up pressure when stopped I had to loosen the gas cap to relieve pressure to keep the edger from flooding. The second use it was fine.

I purchased this and to my surprised when I opened the box, it was a used unit. The manual was missing, the wheels and gas tank were dirty. The blade was worn, chewed up and dirty. The edger was returned the same day. The associate didn't seem surprised and not even a sign of being apologetic. There was one other unit in stock and didn't offer an exchange. When I inquired about the other unit and if I can be assured it was new, I was told go open the box yourself and see. So I left and will probably look to purchase this elsewhere.

Balancing the edger to get the wheels are can be a pain (I used the Styrofoam for leverage). My biggest issue with it is that you have 3 angles you can choose to put the blade. None of which are straight. So it's hard to keep the line. It did it's job but edgers for $150 cheaper were easier to use. I'll keep trying it and return here if my opinion changes.

The edger was packed well with no loose parts and was fairly easy to assemble, it was not rocket science but was a little heavy trying to assemble by yourself. I have used it a couple of times so it is still very early on. I like the adjustments and you will need to use them. I have not had the cranking issues that some have spoken of, it seems to crank just fine. The only issue so far is that is blows a little oil smoke when it first cranks. I bought the extended warranty so we will just wait and see if this becomes a problem. I guess safety regulations require you to release the handle and the edger shuts off if you need to make an adjustment. My old one did not do that but it was 20 years old. Overall pretty pleased with the operation of the edger.

I bought this edger despite some of the negative reviews and I'm glad I did. it is versatile and can do full curb and gutter or the angled type with no issues. I have had this machine for one year and it has run fine with no issues. My neighbors are jealous and want to borrow it all the time as my front sidewalk looks the best in the neighborhood (images to follow). If you are looking for an edger that is not hard to operate, start, or push then I would give this a try. It really is worth every penny.

The only downside was an unexpected (and weird) failure due to manufacturing I guess. The connector on the bottom of the gas-tank completely failed!! I pulled the edger out for this season, filled it up with gas, and all of a sudden, gas all over the machine and driveway!! The connector to the bottom of the gas-tank completely failed and was hanging. The edger has a 2-yr manufacturers warranty, so I contacted them (MAT Engine Technologies, LLC) and they sent a new gas-tank and Fuel Line Fitting / Filter (see page 24 of PDF, items 2 and 6 on the parts list). So the good news, this is a great edger ... I love it and it worked great last season. My driveway, near the curb slopes, this is a pain to edge the 2 feet. But once you move to the street and adjust the edger wheel down to do the street side curb edge, it works perfect! The cool part is that with the large triple blade, it fights through dirt, cuts a clean line, and is fast!! I loved using this edger so much (its fast and easy) I even edge my neighbors lawn, ha, ha. I read they had leaky carburetor issues as well, so just keep an eye out for that more common issue. My issue, I was told (and internet search seems to confirm) is not as common. Enjoy your edger you "will" love it for sure!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the homeowner's that are serious about edged lawns and gardens Overall, this is a great edger and makes clean edges but takes some getting used to. It is a bit heavy, somewhat bulky and learning how to use it takes practice. Prior to this, I used my weed trimmer which had an edging wheel. I did not enjoy dragging a large extension cord around. This edger solves some of those problems. I love an edged lawn, live on a corner lot and have two concrete walkways, so I need to do a lot of it. The edger comes mostly assemblied, I easily screwed on the wheels and set up the blade depth adjuster. It came with oil as well which is nice. The edger has many features, you can set the dept of the blade, height of the front tire and you can drop the right wheel for curbs. You can also change the sideways angle of the blade by 15 degrees either direction although when I adjust it left, it is clearly more than 15 degrees, maybe 30-35. I dropped the wheel for my curb once but found its easier to just keep the edger on the lawn. I am trying to save time here. Most of the edges I need to make are on curves and it takes some maneuvering. Its a pretty delicate as you are trying not to hit the concrete (while I inevitably do but leads to no major issues), but if you get snagged on a bump, it can be difficult to maneuver. The more I use it, the better I get at it. I also used this to help make a garden bed gutter around my new shed; the endgine did stall everytime the blade when more than 3" into the wet clay. If you have the room to store this and love edging, I would consider this product. Otherwise you may want to stick to something smaller.
