The Electric Start Is A Waste Of Time
After following the directions on setting up the battery wires and charging the battery in accord with the directions, at best it cranks once or twice. The electric start works well after you start it manually and turn it off. The restart shortly after the unit is turned off does work. I will have to live with this unit until it brakes down, but would not consider purchasing it again.

Don't Bother
I'm 67 and it's too hard to pull start an edger, so I ordered the Earthquake WE43E. After assembling and changing up, I found it to be so flimsy that's its awkward to use. It is a very cheap piece of equipment. It must be charged before every use, even if you edged the day before. I paid $290 and it's just junk. I went back to Wayfair to check their return policy and they said I'd entered the wrong password. I hit forgot password and got a notice from the web that they sent it. They did... more
