I have a client for whom I have been faithfully mowing his lawn all season (2019) and needed to borrow a ladder to trim a large bush, so he pointed me towards his garage when I saw this very edger just sitting there, apparently unused. I asked him about it and he told me he bought it last year and couldn't get it to start again. So I rolled it out, primed the engine, set the choke and it started up on the second smooth pull. I went through and edged his concrete in no-time flat. I asked him that if he didn't want it, what would he take for it? He asked if I'd got it started and I told him, "yea, I just did all your concrete with it." He looked at me as though I'd just discovered fire. He said, "Well, if you got it to run, just do my yard two more times for free, get that thing out of here and I'll be happy." Well, he didn't have to twist my arm! That's why I gave it an "Excellent" for value because bartering for this made me a hands-down winner. The size and configuration is a little weird, but the handle folds down for easy storage and it runs on regular gasoline so you don't have to mix fuel. The three wheels give it stability for super-straight lines and I really enjoyed using it because proper blade-edging can be a challenge. If you use a string trimmer, you can end up going through a mile of string (depending on the job) and getting grass, soil and small rocks thrown at your face (that's why you NEED eye protection EVERY TIME) and in either case, these old bones really felt the difference between trying to guide a trimmer or edger versus just rolling it along like I could with this edger. FULL DISCLOSURE-I did go back over the curb-edge with a string trimmer to make the edge absolutely perfect because this only cuts an edge, it doesn't trim overhanging grass. But the edge I cut in the part of the lawn shown in the photo with little grass shows how cleanly this machine cuts. Use this edger a few times and you'll see exactly what I mean-it's GREAT!

    Worked one time and then would not start after that and had to be returned. Had one prior to this and the pully broke. We bought a different edger for the third one.

      Very Disapointed
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this edger a year ago. The growing season where I live is almost year round so having good yard equipment is a must. This edger is the worst purchase I have made when it comes to yard equipment. After 4 uses it had to go in for service due to it not starting and the plastic carburetor getting clogged. I use low ethanol gas and filter it before putting it in the tank. I got 7 more uses out of it and had to take it back in for another carb that had to be replaced. I followed all the recommend maintenance for this product and have had no other issues with any of my other equipment from other brands. This company was once high on my list of reliable brands. I will not be purchasing any more of their products. Cheap plastic parts do not deserve my hard earned money.

          My Edger
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love my Troy edger. It does great job of trimming the grass that grows onto my sidewalk. It has plenty of power and goes very easy so I use it often.

            Great Edger!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My neighbors ask me how I manicure my lawn so perfectly. I think they are jealous. This edger goes nice and deep into the turf and I get a nice straight, and finished look. It is relatively easy to use and cuts through tough areas smoothly. I love it!
