I purchased one of these little Troy-Bilt 4-cycle edgers.....It ran great first
few times I used it and it did a great job of edging. At the end of the season
I drained the gas out put in fresh gas with fuel stablizer in it and set my edger
back in my tool shed till next year....When I got it out to work on the yard this
time it would not even try to start.
I took it to a lawnmower repair shop and after three weeks in the shop a new
carburetor and intake manifold it still would not... more

Real Piece Of Junk
Purchased new...used 30 minutes. Ran very poorly with no power. Basically a string trimmer motor on wheels with a blade. Poor design all together. First time I returned a lawn tool to Lowes...ever.

Junk
The edger worked ok the first time I used it. Two weeks later it wouldn't start. I took it back to Lowe's unfortunately I had just over a month and they told me I had to go to the manufacturer. I open the carburetor and found dried up what looked to be chalk. After cleaning the carburetor it started up and ran 3 minutes and died. Now I wasn't getting ant spark to the plug. I repeat what a piece of crap.
Pros: Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Used 1 Time And It Ran Ok Two Weeks Later It Wouldn't Startt

Great Edger For The Money
The Troy-Built TB516EC is a great edger for the money.

The 4-cycle motor is easy to start and has an ample amount of power to do a great job of edging my sidewalks and driveway.

Did I Need It?
It was recommended that I purchase a lawn edger to trim the edges of my lawn. I thought it would be easier to use than my weed eater. I was wrong! My own fault but I should have stayed with my weed eater to edge my lawn. An edger has its use but not in my application. Anybody want to buy a lawn edger!?? Mowers Direct gets a big 5 for their handling of the purchase and delivery. No problems on their end. If I needed a lawn product, I would certainly purchase through Mowers Direct again.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive

Buy The Electric Starter
Purchased in June; by July it was difficult to start. I bought the electric starter, (at a big box store for $39.95) and I am good to go.

Having a heart condition make pulling the cord difficult if you have to pull more than once. This edger is more difficult to cut around curves than my old Weed Eater, but it is still worth the money.

Can Use Until Blade Is Worn Down
It worked well for a whole season until the blade was wore down. I went to replace it and it is IMPOSSIBLE to unscrew the bolts needed to replace the blade. You have to hold the rear hex bolt in which you cannot get a large enough wrench with any torque to reach it. SO, if you are looking for an edger that you can use for 1 season, this is a good one, just don't expect to use it another season.
