Black and Decker Edge Hog Review for 2017

BLACK DECKER LE750 Edge Hog

The perfect blend of performance and power is elusive in today’s world of over-hyped gimmick filled power tools. If you’re one of those people that are looking for something that can handle both options, that can be a tricky proposition.

However there is one product that that gives homeowners everything they need to have a perfectly manicured lawn around their driveways, curbs and sidewalks.

And it comes from a name that is beyond trusted in the power tool industry.

That product is the LE750 Edge Hog 2-1/4 HP Electric Landscape Edger from Black & Decker.

Black & Decker has come up with a product that has the ability to take control of tough overgrowth along hard surfaces as well as give your yard that defined trenched look between the surface and the grass.

This machine is also incredibly easy to use; an operator will get excited once they see how quickly you can start working it. On top of performance, it has incredible efficiency.

This is an electric edger so you will need to have an electric outlet and extension cord ready. Obviously the distance you’ll need to go will decide the length of the extension cord you’ll need. Hopefully you have outdoor sockets around your house. Luckily I do.
One thing that’s great about this is that it more “kid friendly” than a normal gas powered edger. You still need to use caution, but being an electrical unit, there’s no gas to get everywhere and possibly get ignited.

And on top of that, it’s wonderfully quiet so you can operate the machine any time of the day, even on early Saturdays in the a.m. without waking up your neighbors.

The edger weighs only twelve pounds and is easy to move and has great maneuverability around paths.

You can adjust the depth of the edge groove by undoing a screw toward the front of it and adjusting the leading wheel, you can pull the trigger to start the blade instantly and the safety feature allows it to stop as soon as you release the trigger.
