Q: Does the Cub Cadet LE 100 159cc Lawn Edger have a drop down curb wheel?
by Steve Parker from Oklahoma on May 08, 2015

A: Steve - yes, the Cub Cadet LE100 has a 5-position curb hop wheel

Q: Is it gear driven or belt?
by Ray Bollerud from New Hampshire on May 25, 2014

A: Ray - the edger blade on the Cub Cadet LE100 lawn edger is belt driven.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: 1.What brand of engine does it have? Briggs & Stratton? Honda?

2. Does it have an "idle" position? Can I start/run engine without blade running, or does the blade turn constantly as soon as it's on.

by Eric from Tennessee on April 06, 2014

A: Eric - the Cub Cadet 25B-552J710 lawn edger is powered by a Cub Cadet engine. The engine is manufactured by Cub Cadet. There is no "idle" setting. The engine runs at constant RPM's when it's on. The bail at the top of the handle is the blade control lever. This lever must to pulled down and back and held in place by the operator for the edger blade to rotate. The engine will run if the blade is not engaged.

The Cub Cadet 25B-552J710 has some good features to be named the “Good” edger on our Website.

The Cub Cadet 25B-552J710 has a 159cc Cub Cadet engine which will perform well in various conditions. It also has a 4-wheel design that you see more on professional edger’s than on entry level models. Another key feature is the heavy duty 9-inch tri-tip blade which will cut along sidewalks, driveways and curves in no time.

So if you are looking for a good quality unit with a great 3 year... more

Worth The Investment
I have previously owned entry level edger products, and finally decided to do some research and buy a step-up product. Honestly, it's night and day between this price point and the lower cost options. I chose this brand because a couple others in this range have bad reviews with regard to the engine. I've only had this product for roughly a month, but so far, it's great. It's powerful enough to get the job done, starts easily, is built sturdily, and is easy to adjust for sidewalk and curb... more

Cub Cadet Edger
The handle is too high, it needs to be adjustable. You push the blade so deep you can't move forward because the high handle is tipping the machine blade downward. It works best on a hard surface like driveway edging.
Pros: Quiet, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Can't See Blade For Cutting, Difficult To Use, High handle

Stout Runner!
No question this is a great bang for the buck. One pull start just like the Cub mower I own with the same motor. It doesn't even have a choke because it doesn't need one.

I'm on the 2nd year with the mower and one pull still always starts it! This edger is the same way. Fresh out of the box- gas and oil, one pull... BOOM! It starts every time!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: none

Really Good Performer
The machine arrived well boxed and in good shape. A few items were loose in the box, but they were all there. Upon assembly, which was quite easy, and oil/fuel fill-up, I was ready to go.

The motor started very easily with only one good pull. The cutting blade is on the left, which was a tad strange at first being right handed and used to past edgers which cut on the right side. Also, you can't see the blade for cutting. This was overcome in the first 15 minutes of using it.

Not So Good
The very first time I used it, it started right up. I proceeded to edge my front walkway and when I was 3/4 of the way done, the belt snapped. Are you kidding me? I called the company and they said that it would take 5-7 business days to get the replacement belt. If I were the company, I would have shipped it overnight. Also, it is a nightmare trying to put the new belt on.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Bad Instructions, Low Quality, Unreliable

Robert,
I'm so sorry the belt on your edger failed prematurely, but I'm glad the folks at Cub Cadet replaced the belt for you. We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Very Well Made For The Most Part
Seems very well made for the most part. Assembling it can be slightly confusing to you figure out where the one cable has to go, but no biggie. Engine has more than enough power starts easily.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PROBLEM WITH THIS AS FAR I'M CONCERNED. It is belt driven- and the belt seems to be below average in quality. Broke with the first use. Ordered https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AGQ5JQM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Worked fine once I replaced the belt.

Great Machine For The Money!
I have just used this machine for the second time and my neighbors are already commenting on how "manicured" my property looks. I have 200 feet of sidewalk in front of my house and the edge that this machine provides is just awesome!
Started with the first pull right out of the box. Pretty quiet and powerful!

Would definitely recommend for the money!

Disappointing
The edger arrived missing a control cable. I e-mailed the vendor and he promptly sent one. After assembling the machine, it refused to start after many, many attempts. I removed the air cleaner and found that the automatic choke (bad idea on a small, inexpensive engine) was stuck open.

A poke with a finger closed it. It started and I found it worked ok on straight sections but was very difficult to use on curves. Maybe practice will help. I shut it off to cross a gravel road to do the... more

Very Pleased With Product After One Session Of Heavy Use
Easily assembled upon opening box. Started on second pull on cord. Performs edgings tasks easily along concrete, flower beds, and other surfaces. No problems so far and would not hesitate to recommend to others. Takes some effort to push uphill when engaged. Trick is to edge going down and then push it back uphill without trenching.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Light Weight
