Q:Could this be used to break up grass for clearing for a flower garden?

Answer This Question

A:  For landscaping with your LE750 you will want to: Pull edge guide lever sideways to unlock from the guard tab in direction of small arrow. Lift the lever up until the lower square notch in the lever lines up with the tab on the guard. In this position the edge guide is lifted up so the tool can easily cut along the edges of flower and shrubbery beds, and around trees in preparation for trenching or sod removal.

    A:  I wouldn't. There are specific tools for what you want to do. You could do a perimeter perhaps.

    by|May 28, 2022

      A:  No. The LE750 is only for trenching and edging along sidewalks and driveways.

        A:  Possibly.  If you put it on the trench setting (deepest setting), and cut into rectangles the width of your shovel, it may work for you.  Be careful to make sure you don't cut into any underground gas, water or electrical pipes.  No matter what you do, this will not be easy to complete.  Good Luck!

          A:  I wouldn’t use it for that. You might want to look in to renting a tiller for a job such as yours.

                    Q:Can I cut sod with this

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  If the sod is planted, not loose, yes. It is for edging or trenching next to concrete.

                      A:  The edge guide is useful for cutting a straight path along sidewalks. For landscaping or trenching in the yard the edge guide can interfere with moving the edger through hard soil or sod. The edge guide can be adjusted so that the tool will also perform TRENCHING and LANDSCAPING operations. Ticket #4376063.

                      by|May 6, 2022

                        A:  I wouldn’t use this edger for cutting sod.  I use to edge my side walk and driveway.  Wheel can rest on concrete for support.  It does have sharp blade you can injure yourself.   Be careful.

                            Q:Does the cutting depth get deeper when converted to landscape trencher? If so, what is the depth?

                            A:  I don't believe the cutting depth is changed when converted to landscape trencher. By changing the setting, all you are doing is taking the edge-guide out of the way, so it does not drag

                            by|May 21, 2022

                              A:  Has three cutting depths. 1 in, 1.25 in and 1.5 in. Your choice to how deep you want to go. Works great.

                              A:  A google search says that GENERALLY the depth is between 3" and 5", but ranging between 1" to 24". With a brand new blade, set on the lowest setting, it will do approximately 1-1/2" to 1-3/4". The blade will dull/shorten the more rocks and concrete that you hit. hth

                                A:  Yes this unit would work for that application. The Maximum Cutting Depth (in.) = 1.5

                                  A:  I would say yes. I trenched for flower beds and other things and it did a good job.

                                      A:  I use a 100', 16ga cord to run mine. Seems to power it fine. Although, my first one let out the smoke after about three years. Might have been because of the voltage drop of the cord or not, I'm not sure.
