Not HappyThe edger is built heaver than most (a plus). Cut well the three times I used it. Plenty of torque (a plus). When I raise the cutter head the height adjustment lever want stay in the notched out section that supposed to hold the cutter head at your desired height, you have to keep putting it back in place. I noticed from day one I had to keep the chock partially closed for it to run correctly. I should have brought it back then - my mistake.
After being kept in my shop for a year not being used, I decided I better run it for a while. It would start and stop like it was out of fuel. I removed the gas cap to find the metal in the cap was rusty. After looking further I found the metal tank was solid rust. When I last used the machine it ran fine other than the chock problem. It was NOT washed off (blown off). Staybil was put in the tank with fresh gas and kept in my climate controlled shop for about 9 months.
I just priced a new tank and cap for $80.00 but where did the rust come from? I'm starting to believe there was a small amount rust in the tank from the factory that I didn't see, which could explain the chock problem (if a small amount of rust may have partially clogged up a jet in the carb). Bottom line if you have any problem bring it back. Don't think the problem will get better as it breaks in.
