Starts easy, angled blade feature is useful
I ordered from an internet company, since I have no local dealer that stocks these devices. I assembled the unit in less than an hour, then added oil and gasoline. The engine started on the first pull. I especially enjoy the feature that allows the blade to be angled in either direction.
I use it to edge along a blacktop driveway, next to a concrete walk, and around our landscape beds. It performs well on all three. I would definitely purchase this unit again.

Great product.
Have the one with Subaru engine. More than enough power, easy to operate. Looking forward to many years of service. The whole edger seems to be built realy well. A little pricy, but after some time of use worth the price, and would recommend and buy again.

This edger has all around great quality and the engine is very powerful and is easy on the gasoline. The edger is easy to operate and leaves the lawn with a crisp clean cut and makes your yard look terrific.

I have owned several edgers (gas and electric). This Ariens with Subaru Engine is the best I have owned. It starts with ease and does an excellent job. I have a long driveway and walkway and have used this edger for over a year with no issues.

I did a lot of research before making my purchase and I am delighted with my Ariens Edger. Lots of power, user friendly, great features and I really like being able to stop the blade yet keep the engine idling if needed. It zips through the dried soil like it was sand and have used it to edge a couple of landscaping beds and it worked great. I usually edge our beds with a flat shovel but I believe this edger make the job easier and quicker with only a little clean up work left for the shovel. Ariens,,, you designed and built a great edger and the price was very reasonable with great features such as power, blade stop lever, fuel shut-off and throttle.

Great addition to my lawn equipment.
Couldn't ask for a better edger! The Subaru 6.0hp engine was a nice touch. Well built equipment.

Looked at a lot of different brands and Ariens is by far the best out there. Starts easy and leaves a clean cut for that professional look.

Very well built edger but has some minor short comings. As mentioned the curb wheel ajustment is hazardous and a little difficult. Also had to Maguiver the front wheel closer to the blade so it would ride on curb. Very good edger for the price though.
