I have owned a lot of edgers. Mostly those that attach to a string trimmer. But I have also had one of the lighter weight walk behinds. Well, those aren't bad, but they die in about a year or two. And hit something with them? Time to buy a new one. The Ariens edger is an edger period. No attachments. It is heavy duty and designed to do one job...edge. And it does that job exeedingly well. It starts easily, and runs like a watch. When you are edging all you do is walk behind it and the machine does the work, not you! Edging is effortless. The results are fantastic. And it "sips" gas.

Is this edger more expensive than the light weights? Sure. But like anything else, you get what you pay for. And what you get here is a quality "Wisconsin built" product that does the job!

We ordered three of these units from Grainger before we finally received one that was not damaged. With the front wheel adjusted all the way to the left the left edge of the wheel barely rides at the drop off of the curb making it to where you have to fight the unit the entire time to keep it up on the curb and it just eats blades. The first two units we received that were damaged had the cutter head assembly so loose and wobbly that it would just flop back and forth 4 to 6 inches. It appears to be a bad design. The local Ariens repair shop claimed they were damaged in shipment, and wanted us to have bought one from their shop. We have another location that has one of these units as well and it is almost a year older than ours and over time the cutter head on theirs has gotten loose and they have kind of guild-wired the head off with plastic zip ties to hold the head steady. and those are replaced on a regular basis. I work for a Government agency and we are restricted as to what we can purchase. This was the only edger on our catalogue. and it is the worst edger I have ever operated. I have used at least 3 other brands and I didn't know you could mess up an edger. also the adjustment that you have to unscrew every time to drop the back wheel for edging curbs is a pain, and ours is also sprung out where it doesn't line up in the holes in both tracks which drives that wheel at a bit of an angle too. The engine is impressive but the edger is junk.

The product is great but has engineering and quality...

Comments about Ariens Edger:

I purchased the model 986103 with the Subaru engine. This engine is great. My quality problems were with the elevation pivot and the tilt pivot. Both were loose and and the cutting head vibrated excessively. The screws were secure and tight. The elevation pivot had A 1/8" gap between the guard and the chassis. The belleville spring washers were nested but after turning one a 1/16" gap remained and needed to be filled with an additional flat washer. The tilt pivot was loose because the Y of the tilt lever was 1/16" too narrow. A washer was added. Surely US manufacturing can do better than to expect quality control at the service dealer or owner.

The main engineering problem is with high curbs. The curb wheel cannot be lowered enough for 6" to 8" curbs so the machine is very tilted and if the blade is worn it will not edge properly. This might be easily remedied by adding a 2nd lower screw hole in bracket #29.

Comments about Ariens Edger:

The Arians edger is easy to use well designed and a treat to use. (if using lawn equipment is a treat). Right away I started getting positive comments from my neighbours on how it makes my property stand out..

I had purchased an Ariens snowblower two years ago and have been very satisifed with it's performance. I needed a lawn edger and again purchased an Ariens product.
