What is a Lawn Edger
A lawn Edger is a common machine that some people use to trim the edges of there garden or road gutters to form a boundary between the grass surface and the sand or pavement surface giving it a unique clean finish. A lawn edger is basically much smaller than a Lawn Mower and chances are if a person own’s a lawn mower majority of them also own’s a lawn edger.Lawn edger can either motorize or manual just like a lawn mower and it comes in different design depending on the brand.
How to Start A Lawn Edger
Starting a Lawn Edger is pretty much easy there are only a few steps that you need to keep in mind before using a lawn edger and it’s pretty much easy to do.
I have been building and servicing Lawn edgers for more than 2 years, and still, of all those years I notice that there are still a lot of people out there who do not know how to use a lawn edger and even though they were using it for a while they’re still having problems.
So Starting a Lawn Edger is very easy!
the first thing that you need to do is check if there’s petrol in the fuel tank if there’s no petrol then buy a fresh one.
By the way, if you have a Lawn Edger and it’s been sitting for awhile chances are the petrol is already spoiled, yes that’s right petrol get spoiled if it sitting for a long time so if your edger was not been run for a long time you will then notice that your petrol has a stinky smell, that’s the indication that you need a new fresh petrol and give your carburetor a service.
There are different brands of lawn edger out there, so choosing the best brand is still up to you, for me the best one is the MOW MASTER brand since I’m here in Australia, but then again there are so many good brands out there, it is simply ads YOU PAY WHAT YOU GET it means that if the machine is cheap it means that it’s not good it will not last long but if its a little expensive then you can expect it to be really good.
