Wow!
This is so much more powerful (and heavy) than our 30 year old McLane edger. Have only used it once, but in the process lost the all so critical cotter pin. Will have to get to a store to find another one that will fit in the tight space that is must go into.

Thanks for your quick and effective delivery.

Not Designed For Rolling On Standard Curbs.
Problem is that even with the front wheels properly configured to roll on a curb, there is too much distance between the wheel and the blade. This edger is a clone of the McLane 801 (says 801 on the chassie) and word is that their curb wheel accessory isn't effective either.

A work around is to roll the edger on the grass side of the cut which is more difficult due to rolling resistance and height irregularity which effects the precision of cut and how fast you can work.

What makes this... more
Cons: Doesn't Edge Curbs As Well As It Should Given To Its Design

Arrived Broken
Arrived and put together very easily.. However, after adding oil and gas it was discovered that the recoil mechanism had no compression. I took it to my lawn mower mechanic (no Husqvarna dealer in town), and he discovered the recoil mechanism was broken. It cost me $52 and change to get it fixed. I could not send it back due to oil and gas in machine. I talked to your company and was told to take it to another town for repair. At age 79, I decided to let my local repairman fix it.

The Experience Could Have Been Better
I purchased the Husqvarna LE475 4-Cycle Wheeled Edger from Mowers Direct. I received the produce with in three days (wow). I removed the edger from the box followed the instructions to assemble, filled with gas started it up, no problem. I stored the edger in my garage so I could use it the next day. Well the wife (next day) said she could smell gas in the garage and I said I smelled gas in the basement last night. After checking all the cars I discovered that the edger was leaking gas... more

Engine Over Heated
Engine over heated during first use and told by Husqvarna this was not covered under warranty. Features were good too bad the quality wasn't.

Service/delivery by Mowers Direct was good. Would purchase from website again.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features
Cons: Low Quality, Not Durable, Expensive

The Best Investment
I've had this edger for almost 6 months now --- it continues to start on the first pull every time. To say the least, I am very impressed.

It makes an exceptional edge along sidewalks and driveways, and is very easy to handle. I contemplated this purchase for more than a year, mainly due to the price. I finally felt like it was worth getting another piece of equipment made by Husqvarna since all of my other lawn maintenance equipment is also made by Husqvarna.

This is first quality... more

Excellent As A Lawn Edger On Flat Terrain
This is a good piece of equipment that will edge along driveway or sidewalk in minutes. It is very powerful. If you employ the blade in a horizontal mode, the required wheel adjustment compromises some stability making maneuvering it on the ground awkward when trying to deal with cane or bush. Great care must be taken to avoid losing the wheel spacer and to control the exact path of the blade. Better wheels would allow deployment on rough ground greatly improving the versatility of of this... more
Pros: Fast, Powerful

Great Edger!
Just an FYI, I have the exact same edger with a 2 HP Briggs motor, branded by Montgomery Wards. My edger is from the late
70's and was a "hand me down" from my parents 10 years ago. Other than regular oil changes, greased up and one new blade, the edger is still going strong. Starts on the first or second pull every time. She isn't the prettiest, but works and runs great.

Don't know who made them for Wards back then, but the Husqvarna didn't change the design at all. If it... more

Broke First Time
The first time I tried to use this edger I had trouble with the starter cord. The engine would not start and the cord rewound very, very, very slowly. When I finally did get it to start (the first time it actually started) the rewind cord again rewound very, very, very slowly and fell off the spindle inside the engine. Then, the rewind mechanism suddenly caught hold, rewound the cord so fast and so hard that it didn't stop when the handle hit the rewind cover, and the cord broke. I had to... more

The Registration
The Product works very good But I will not buy Husqvarna brand of anything again. It has nothing
to do with Mowers Direct, it is Husqvarna company, they did not except the registration.

John,
We checked your file; it shows that you called us, said you didn't get a warranty card, and we sent you a link to Husqvarna's web site so you could register your warranty online.

We appreciate your business and want to do all we can to assist you; but it's very hard to help if we don't know what's wrong.

Your order was placed on 5/24 and delivered on 5/26, so your order was not delayed.

We are not allowed to register the warranty for you- Husqvarna has you do that yourself, since they ask for personal information.

If you have a problem with the edger, please give the folks at Husqvarna Tech Support a call at 800-448-7543. Since they make the units they are far better equipped to give you advice and provide warranty support.

A member of our Customer Service team will be contacting you to offer their assistance, as well.
