Who made the engine?

Answers

This is a total Chinese manufactured product so impossible to determine the engine manufacturer. I had to replace the OEM carburetor with another Chinese manufactured one. Once I did I have not had any issues. The fuel tank also had to be replaced under warranty.

What size blade dose this take?

Answer

For a replacement blade please contact 800.737.2112 for A100503 which is the blade.

How do you get the blade off?

I haven't yet and I don't think I ever will. My edger is impossible to start unless you disassemble and clean the carburetor before you attempt to start it. I regret I ever bought this POS.

What kind of gas is needed

Asked by Tt June 29, 2020

Answers

A low compression engine so 87 is okay but ethanol is a poor choice for small gas engines. Ethanol attracts moisture from the air, separates from the gas, and sinks to the bottom of your engine’s fuel tank. This watered-down ethanol is then fed into your engine and can cause ignition problems. Ethanol is also corrosive and burns really hot, which can cause overheating and irreparable damage. It’s best to use ethanol-free gas in small engines. If you do decide to use ethanol, don’t use a fuel that is more than 10% ethanol (E10), and be sure to add fuel treatment to prevent the fuel from separating.

Needs more horse power, leaks oil from cap, and you have to choke it constantly to get it started. It does alright though, if you edge regularly.

When I took out the pieces to assembly the edger one of the bolt's threads was crooked so it wouldn't screw. When i called the company to ship me an extra part, i was met with a rude customer service woman who made me jump through hoops to prove i purchased this product, including sending a receipt AND reading her the manufacturing #. As the machine sits unassembled and useless in my garage as I wait for the part, Southland should have been nothing but apologetic instead of treating a customer like criminal trying to scam the system to send them a replacement bold. I would have bought a different brand, i can understand that these things happen but this bad service is unacceptable.

Actually 4.5 stars. Have owned the product about a month, and used about six times. Meets my expectations. Product assembled easily and started right up. It has made edging 300+ feet of sidewalk a breeze! I actually look forward to doing it. Edging beds is more difficult, as the nose wheel mount tends to dig into the grass while pushing it with the blade more than two notches down. I have discovered that pulling it works better but it takes some time to pull it accurately. Summary: Pros: - easy to assemble - Well built and easy starting - makes sidewalk edging a joy rather than a chore - sidewalk edges look great - bed edges look good but more difficult to do Cons: - Nose wheel mount digs into ground while edging beds - the debris shield does not stop debris when blade is angled - accurate sidewalk edging results in frequent contact between the sidewalk and the blade. Perhaps a guide could be installed which would follow the sidewalk contour and reduce the blade contact and resultant blade wear? Overall a thumbs up for those with long sidewalks or driveways. Jury still out in bed edging capability

Finally was able to use my new Christmas present! The edger was a pleasure to use. Assembly was easy. The fact that I don't have to break my back lugging around a weed eater with an edging attachment was just icing on the cake! Our house sits at the beginning of a road and is lined with sidewalks as well as drainage curbing on the road edge. So the added amount of edging necessary to keep the lawn looking good and the neighbors from complaining required an edger and the Southland edger does the trick. It took a couple passes to shore up everything because of all the overgrowth, but it handled it with ease.

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!!!

This unit couldn't have worked better! It took me about 10 minutes to put it together and started on the 1st pull. I like that you can adjust front wheel closer to a blade it give more stability in edger for those with harder soil I get this unit because it was the only one in this price range that had the curb adjustment feature and it worked very well, also like the option that you can choose the different angle 15 degree left or right. Next up will be to see how this unit performs in edging my beds. I would recommend this edger to anyone in the market for an edger. The massage to a Powermate please pack up those loose hardware in a ziplock bag so the hardware do not scattered through the box during the shiping.
