Has anyone else experienced carb leaking gas? I noticed on review section that there are a few, like me, that experienced this, even with limited use of the machine?
Asked by: snkiis3
I had the similar issue and was in contact with Southland and they were very good with sending out a new carb (need proof of purchase). Changing out carb is fairly simple. Perhaps taking quick photos of positioning will help with reassembly of the new carb. For those that are out of warranty, this is the part you need: (Carburetor with Gasket for Powermate PWLE0799 PWLE0799F2N 79CC 9" 3.5 FT-LBS Gas Edger) Ebay or Amazon has this. https://www.amazon.com/HURI-Carburetor-Powermate-PWLE0799-PWLE0799F2N/dp/B015OCNLO0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1506096762&sr=8-1&keywords=HURI+Carburetor+with+Gasket+for+Powermate+PWLE0799+PWLE0799F2N+79CC+9%22+3.5+FT-LBS+Gas+Edger

9 in. 79cc Gas Walk-Behind Edger with Curb Hopping Feature is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 129.

I don't like to buy stuff on line, but I needed a new lawn edger and the price was good. Picked up this Southland lawn edger at my local Home Depot(free shipping). The box was in excellent shape and the Home Depot people helped me load it in my pickup. Read the instructions and had it all put together in under an hour, attach handle and wheels, add oil, oil was included in box, you need metric wrenches. All the nuts and bolts were in plastic bags, easy to find. Runs great, thankfully I don't need the curb hopping feature, it looks kind of funky. Don't fill the gas tank completely full, gasoline needs extra space to expand when it gets hot. Great buy, Happy edging to all!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Everything is fine but the front wheel does not align... Everything is fine but the front wheel does not align correctly. It tilted to the right side. Therefore, the edger cutter tend to keep grinding the concrete sidewalk. It causes edger very difficult to go straight and the cutter wear out fast. I added an extra washer to realign the front wheel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice My edger is very easy to put together and a snap to start. The only reason why I won't give it 5 stars is because it seems like one of the wheels turn in slightly and it goes alittle off course. But besides that I'm thrilled to have it

I grew up using an edger way before string trimmers and now I realized you can not beat the job and edger does. No bumping to feed line. No bald spots where the trimmer cut to close and no spots where the trimmer couldn't get down to cut tough weeds. The edger cuts through everything the first time. The walk way up to the house have thick weeds growing over it and my gas powered trimmer couldn't cut the weeds like this edger did with NO EFFORT. My yard looks much better with the uniform cut along the sidewalks. I'm sorry it took me so long to get one.

Seems a few have had this same experience. Changed it out with generic carb bout from Amazon and everything is working great. Also I put a gas shut off valve for storing...use high octane gas to prevent carb corrosion and poor starting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Deal So far so good. Only used 3 times. It was very easy to assemble and even easier to operate. Quick Start and go. Somewhat sturdy and over all not a bad Edger for the price. The Oil Dip stick can be tricky to put back in. FYI... it does mention in Manuel to check Oil with Dipstick not fastened down. Something you have to remember. Do only reason I do not give 5 Stars is because, if your not careful it can rock toward the blade while running and chip your sidewalk or driveway before your ready.
