My first edging experience was not ideal. I found the graphic depicting edging vs trenching confusing which resulted with sparks, flying stones and dirt. After I played around with it I saw where my mistake was. READ THE DIRECTIONS. I tend to “intuitively” assemble and use with the underlying belief… how difficult can this be. I am very satisfied and recommend. There is a YouTube posting demonstrating proper use.

This item should not be sold to the Irish or UK market it is a USA landscaping tool. It was not supplied with the proper adapter and is the wrong voltage 120v not the required 240v, this is not advised in the item description. Very disappointed as also quite expensive compared to the USA price.

We had to replace our B&D edger, so bought the same model again. As another reviewer said, it’s just not the same anymore! They’ve obviously cheapened or shortcut a lot of the components. For example: The plastic trigger guard & handle assembly is smaller and there are no longer raised lines on either side to help with gripping the edger with sweaty hands. They made the metal shaft smaller (probably to use less material & make it cheaper). The large black handle shown in the picture has been replaced by an oblong plastic knob. There is no longer a guard over the blade assembly on the cutting side. These last 2 are the crucial issues. It’s harder to hold and guide with the knob. And without the guard plate, it’s way more dusty when edging. Fortunately my husband is very handy, and took the black handle off of our old edger and get it installed on the new one through a little inspired engineering. And he saved the blade head off of the old one to see if it can be switched for the uncovered one. Bottomline, the edger still works mostly the same, just not as easily or conveniently.

We use this to trim a neat line around our gravel driveway. DO NOT DO THIS when children or pets are around because pebbles go flying everywhere – you could break a window. We built a shield for it and now we don’t have that problem. If you are using it to tidy a garden bed or cement/asphalt driveway, it is ideal – powerful and accurate and easy to use. Wish it came with a shield.

this edger didn’t edge as it was advertised it only cuts a line in the dirt. It showed this tool cutting a V shaped trench on the edge of flower beds and it will never do this

I have about 200 feet of walk and driveway to keep trimmed. Once I saw this item I jumped to buy it. I am amputee and have hip and knee replacements on the opposite leg and being over 75 I had only minor difficulty adjusting to a new tool. Once I got the hang of it it did a great job an d now my walks and drive look like a pro team of gardeners had done the work. It also comes with as spare cutting blade. Being a corded machine one has to exercise caution regarding the cord, but you do not need to worry about a battery dying part way through the job.

I owned an Edge Hog for 15 years that finally gave up. I ordered the same model as I was please with the original, however when I received the new one I discovered that it had gone through some cost- cutting design changes. The main connector tube is far smaller in diameter and less strong. The handle is one piece and now non-adjustable. The guard covering the blade has been removed and now it is completely exposed. Also the little hubcaps are not installed allowing dirt into the wheel hubs. If I could have found another manufacturer that had a more robust product I would have gladly paid more for it.

I like what my repairman said about this one and the last two bought just before it.” All of them are constructed out of what might be commonly referred to as grade 2 or 3 plastic, on a scale of 6.
Even the brush holders and bearing supports. When sufficient sustained heat is generated, in normal use, the plastic softens, sags, and in the case of Nr1 deforms to allow the bearing support to come out of alignment. Which then creates more side load on the brush holder which then deforms faster. To begin to fix either the bearing support or brush holder turns destructive immediately.
Number two the bearing alignment is still so-so but the amount of sparking from the brushes is pretty amazing until the bearings heat up and slow things down.
Number three -the switch is newer-differently constructed internally (Think cheaper) and the original one having arced over to protect the brushes. New switch and it kind of runs, but, with huge amounts of sparking action at the brushes until the bearings get hot and once again slow things to a stop (which is why the switch lasted the shortest time of all).
There is no cure for their problems except for having the brush assembly and the bearing holder be made out of something like bakelite or a really good thermoplastic.”

I am going to assume I’ll love it, based on other reviews, but I’m taking off a star because of the confusing and conflicting info about amperage and the “auxiliary” handle. Also the lack of clear info about which type of extension cord is needed. Note that the LE750 and LE760 ($10 more) are the same except that the latter has an extra replacement blade. And the handle is now different from earlier ones with the same model number.ISSUES:1. The handle. The current LE750 does not have an adjustable “auxiliary handle” B&D has apparently removed it in favor of a knob for the forward hand that is part of the handle assembly and not adjustable–at least for models sold on Amazon and at Lowes and Home Depot. On their own web site, you still see the black aux handle–are we losing out on that? I have no idea whether that’s a good change or just a cheaper one… but the current instruction manual I got is confusing as hell–there is a section describing “Position Auxiliary Handle (FIGURE 4)”–but there is no such handle–and they simply removed Figure 4!–it’s just a blank space now, with Figs 1-3 and then Figs 5-12 on the next panel.2. Amperage. Is it 11 or 12? On the Amazon description, LE750 is said to be 11 amps. The LE760 “kit” is said to be12 amps in one bullet, and 11 amps in another bullet in the same bulleted list! On the B&D web site, they say it’s 11 amps for the LE750. But the panel between the rear wheels on the edger say 12 A. The instruction sheet provides NO specs. Sheesh! (Does it matter?)3. Extension cord. The chart in the instruction sheet is hard to read. Surely most people are going to want to use a 100-ft cord. But the choices for an ampere rating of 10-12 amps is 14 min gauge for 100 ft cord. Well, neither Lowes nor Home Depot carry a 14-amp cord of 100 ft (only 50 feet, at Home Depot–none at Lowes). The instructions warn that using a lower-amperage cord will cause overheating and shorten the life of the motor. OK, so the instructions say that if in doubt, use the “next next heavier gauge. The heavier gauge, the smaller the gauge number.” (I learned that elsewhere). So doing the math, I guess I’m OK with my 100-ft 13 amp “medium duty” cord, but they could have given examples of the right cord to use with THIS APPLIANCE, based on standard cords available, rather than give confusing ranges that don’t exist or are irrelevant to this actual edging machine.

Fast delivery and packing was good enough, however, I was a bit worried since hedgehog was packed in plain brown boxing with no Black and Decker logo anywhere to be found. My first thought was that this was a refurbished unit, and sold as new, but I’m not totally convinced of this either since it doesn’t appear to be a refurbed unit, it does appear to be brand new!As for its performance, After reading reviews, I wasn’t expecting miracles just a decent job. If you look at the first 2 photos, this is before and the last 2 photos are the after. I put the edge guide down and cut through the thick matting of weeds in no time. I allowed the machine to do its job and guided it down the sidewalks, not rushing it. It performed perfectly, out of the box. I am happy with this unit and it works well for me, but I also have a small yard, total yard done in just under 2 hours. I used to edge with a weedwhacker and that was pure frustration, usually ending with a lot of broken line and incomplete edging, but no more! Just keep in mind that it is corded and it costs under $50.00. Well worth the money for me!!
