Very Good Quality Edger
I first bought a Troy Bilt trimmer and MTD edger at Lowes. Took them both back because the TB525 4-stroke didn't have enough power for the edger, but the edger was not designed well either (the rubber skirt drags on the wheel, thus the wheel didn't turn easily, an overall mess to operate). Went to Sears and found their 4-cycle trimmer to be identical to the unit I returned at Lowes, but the edger was visually much better designed and higher quality. In the end, I bought the Craftsman edger (and tiller) attachments, but went back to Lowes for a 2-cycle Troy Bilt trimmer. Since Troy Bilt = MTD = Craftsman, I might as well buy the cheaper and lighter unit (and I got bump feed standard on TroyBilt), but I highly recommend the attachments from Sears - they are differentiated.

Frustrated
Listen closely! I purchased the edger attachment last fall. My first blade change attempt was a nightmare. I still haven't gotten the screw off. I tried to place a flat head screw driver in the slot to keep the blade from spinning. The slot just broke. Nearly every review I've read had the same problem. I wasted an hour of yard time wrestling with this blade change issue. Don't buy it until you find out how to resolve this issue. Try Ryobi. Not to mention, the trimmer motor itself is heavy. Shop around.

edger

Good accessory for edging lawn. Must keep nuts tight or you can lose them as they tend to vibrate off. Fast shipping

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Edger

I bought this Edger so that I didn't have to deal with the long extension cord for my electric edger. It took a little while to get used to it, but after the third time I was completely comfortable with it. I use it all the time now and it only takes a minute to change from a string trimmer to an Edger and no cords to deal with. I'm thinking of buying the blower attachment as well.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy to use.

In the past, I have owned products which were supposedly interchangeable, however, the ease of use left much to be desired. The Craftsman Universal edger attachment worked perfectly with my Poulan Pro trimmer, I recommend this product to all fellow home owners.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Disappointing

I really wanted this to work but it disappointed on a number of levels. The design utilizing a single wheel was difficult to keep on line. There was a lack of enough power to have any real impact and the motor ended up uncomfortably close to the arm and elbow. All in all the unit was uncomfortable to use

edger attachment

I don't know if the blade is supposed to have a sharpened edge on it but it wont edge anything as is. A 1/4 flat edge just does not cut and when trying to edge the power head gets very hot and starts smoking.

Craftsman universal edger attachment

I purchased the 4 cycle trimmer with this additional edger attachment. It was a great value, and the edger cuts a nice, deep groove. It is also easy to switch out the various attachments. My only complaint with it is that the dirt tends to get choked up between the blade and backing plate, causing you to stop and clean it every so often.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
