I Loved This Fan So Much I Purchased Four – Lawn Mower Edger Critique

January 11, 2012 · Posted in Family 

It worked beautifully and felt great. I got some goggles out, and whenever I hit a rock, I used a small garden shovel at that very moment to dig the rocks out from the immediate area in front of me and kept moving.

My only concern is how well it will hold up over time. I had another Black and Decker product (a hedge cutter) and it was flimsy.

My only problem is that I was unable to see the guide wheel from my vantage point in the rear of the edger. I compensated by using the guide imprinted on the front housing, above the hidden wheel. Not so, I tried used the product but went back to the grass hog. Its okay for digging trenches – if that’s all you need it for.

We have St. Augustine grass here in Florida. I receive my package on time. I would have rather the shipping company or someone have boxed or wrapped the package but all in all it was a good experience. We changed our minds several times before purchasing the edger – our other options were to rent a gas powered edger or use a manual one. We are pleased with our decision; it was the perfect tool for installing the wire. The blade does not penetrate enough depth to properly cut a decent edge. Perhaps the blade is dulled as others comment in this thread. Talk about ‘the fleecing of America’ when it comes to the consumer. It’s all around us now and arguably getting worse!

Yard devas are all about color and looking good while you are having fun! Make sure the depth adjustment screw is tight though, it loosened up once and I had to secure it but after that it was fine. This might have something to do with me having the handle fully extended due to my height. It’s something the B&D engineers may want to look at when they redesign it in the future. This machine tackles the tough Bermuda grass without a hiccup. Plenty of power at much less cost than gasoline models.

It cuts through tough grass easily because of the motor amp. The only thing I did not like about this product is the blade. What I hadn’t counted on was how heavy and awkward that would make the task of edging. I have some spinal injuries so I thought that might have contributed to my difficulties.

The product is very light weight and easy to manage. Mexican Blankets.
