My Craftsman edger just pooped out after just a few uses. The air filter is
spotless, it's so new, but still it refuses to start. I know it's the carb,
however, I played this game with my Ryobi 4 cycle trimmer, rebuilding the
carb four times before throwing in the towel and buying a rechargeable B&D
trimmer, which works great.
Anyway, I have no plans to haul this thing to the shop, or tear it apart,
every six months. What I'd like is a walk behind edger that will start when
I pull the dang cord.
It doesn't have to be fancy, but it must be a walk behind, and reliable.
Seems that Sears is selling crap these days.
Any suggestions on a new edger?
I use a McLane and it's un-breakable. My McLane was bought 4 years ago,
very used for 50 bucks. I use it 5+ hours a week with no fail.
Personally I would take your edger back to Sears and tell them to fix it.
I don't care how old the warrenty is. If they give you no relief, then I'd
get the machine fixed and then sell it. Just a thought..
I like and use the Mantis Tiller just get the wheel kit for it. Plus you
can then use it to do your flower beds. Just don't expect it to break up
hard rocky ground that's never been turned over.
