How does it make a nice cut with the blade being so dull ? Will this work on St Augustine grass ?
Asked by: Rod
This will edge your st. Augustine fine, it is spinning so fast it will knife thru the grass, since it is mainly for moving dirt and crud from your edge it won't have an edge. But actually as you use it over time it will form a slight edge from hitting the sidewalk, which is unavoidable.

Expand-It 8 in. Universal Straight Shaft Edger Attachment is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1869.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 1st edging of the season is the hardest on... The 1st edging of the season is the hardest on my quarter acre corner lot (sidewalks along 2 streets, plus a swale). It usually takes an hour & two fully charged 40V batteries. This edger was so fast on the edging that it took only 20 minutes to establish a "line" for the season. Because the weight of the edger rests on the wheel, it gave much needed relief to my wrists (for a season, experiencing much pain). I couldn't have held the trimmer in all the positions for as long as I'd have needed to, otherwise (yes, it rotates; still wouldn't have been possible).My only criticisms? 1) The depth setting seems to have been designed for someone 4' tall. I'm 6' & at its shallowest setting I still had to stoop a bit to get the depth where I wanted it. 2) While this would be true for any edger, the vertical only nature of its cut meant that I still had to go back with the trimmer set horizontally on some of the cuttings the edger had separated from the rest, to separate them from their roots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Considerably better than string After many decades of using a string trimmer for edging I purchased this attachment for my Expand-It. Wow, this is just as good as the edgers the lawn maintenance workers use at my neighbors’ home. Use this on dry dirt not wet, otherwise the wet dirt will fill up the underside of the shield, however it is easy to clean, when finished edging spray it with water. Yes it is tight there so I use a screwdriver to move the impacted wet dirt (dry dirt easily hoses off). This compared to a string edging is considerably easier. With string one must watch where they walk, the string head can swing making a wide spot, and the like. This head, place it on the concrete walk forward, Compared to when I used the string head this edger attachment cuts my edging in half or more. Rather than edging with the string head I should have purchased the edger attachment when RUOBI first was offered. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Swap for a Sharp Edge I was one of those guys determined to use the trimmer as an edged but now I have this magical edger. I was skeptical that the battery power could deliver the performance but WOW! I love how the edger leaves a deep cut in the soil creating the perfect weed boundary. I now have the best crisp edges along the sidewalk, driveway, and curb on my street. But wait there’s more .... you can use this to edged along the flower and landscaping beds. I know what you are thinking. I too thought I could get satisfactory rest with the triller but who doesn’t have an oops and wack an annual and run the risk of the mean eye look of the wife. This attachment is perfect for that area. But wait there’s even more, (I know right), MASSIVE BATTERY POWER! I have a medium to large yard with lots of flower beds and sidewalks, driveway and curb along the street. I used it two weeks in a row and went around twice (ok because I had a new toy) still had two lights on the battery indicator. Go get one. You won’t be disappointed.

I bought both the expand-it 40v 4ah head unit with a weed eater and this edger separately. I have seen numerous reviews about 18v systems not being strong enough. I have had a 2 cycle edger in the past. I thought I would give this a try. I was amazed with its ability to edge my yard even though I haven't done a deep edging in years since my gas edger died. I cut through inches of grass that came out like chunks of sod and just kicked it over on to the yard for later mulching by my mower. I did not even use the complete battery charge. In my view this product is amazing. Can't believe anybody would buy a gas edger after using this. Be aware that after heavy edging, and I mean heavy edging, it would halt and and I would need to re-squeeze the trigger to start it. It has an overload sensor apparently, but I never waited more then a few seconds. It ran continuously and cut great all the areas of the yard where the dirt and grass had not become long and full of dirt. I am can't believe frankly how good it edged. No more gas yard equipment for me. Waiting for my mower to die. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice power - but missing a couple of things! I very please with the edger... For a battery powered device it has the power to wack through overgrown edge grass. I bought the 40V expand-it trimmer and a 40V Ryobi blower as well. So I have a back-up battery, but seldom need it (~1/2 home lot with big drive and several flower beds to trim). There's a couple of improvements needed, though I'm getting use to it. First, when the blade is new (and long) there doesn't seem to be enough adjustment in the wheel height adjustment to keep the blade at the right level for my liking. Second there's no blade guide - like many edgers these days. You need to get the blade spinning fast enough to guide along your drive/sidewalk. We have paver stone drives so there's a concern I might crack a paver. Overall a simple to use, quality product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep your lawn edges neat I like to maintain my lawn and have several parts where sidewalk borders my front yard. I used regular string trimmer but it does not keep edges nice and even like an actual edger can. This edger is quality built, has adjustable height wheel - you can adjust it so the blade goes in deeper or more shallow when edging your lawn. Edger itself is made of steel and should last many years. Comes with instructions and necessary tool to change out blade. Also end that attaches to powerhead comes with a cap with a hook so you can hang it on the wall in your garage/shed and keep dirt and moisture out of it. It easily bolted onto my Troy Bilt 25cc trimmer. It gets a bit heavy when you hold it up with edger attachment on it, however I realize that it's built heavy duty. You have to be careful when starting to edge your lawn not to hit concrete sidewalk. Best time to edge is when your lawn has not been watered as when its moist its harder for edger to cut through moist soil/grass and it bogs down. This is definitely more economic alternative to a wheeled edger which can cost your several hundred dollars.

I was very impressed with the job this edged did and I liked the adjustable wheel to help control the depth of the cut. The curved shaft is a really great feature that makes it easy to keep your lines straight. IT was really easy to use and since my walkway has a slight curve to it, I was really pleased with the results despite this being my first time using the edger attachment. You do need to make sure that the wing-bolt that holds the guide-wheel stays tight because mine fell off, requiring me to locate the spacer, both washers and the wing-bolt, but aside from that one little hiccup, I have -0- complaints about the noticeably superior job it did over just a plain string trimmer for the edges. If you want to give your lawn a well-manicured look with sharp edges, sure, it takes a little extra time, but THIS edger is the fastest way to get there. Despite all of the built-in safety features, you'd still be wise to WEAR EYE PROTECTION whenever you're using your power tools. A dust-mask when using this edger might not be a bad idea, either. With having the string trimmer, brush cutter, hedge clipper and blower attachments, all the other guys in my neighborhood now feel pressured to "up their game," so that's a bonus.
