This really affordable tool is great for edging even in the hardest areas. I also used it to create the edge between my grass and my garden and worked great as well since it has 2 settings to do both. Some people use their trimmers to edge but this edging tool gives you a nice & clean cavity between the sidewalk and the grass. I really recommended for a more detailed finish!
Pros: Cuts Well, All In One, Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, versatile

Edge between the grass and the garden using the trench setting.
Typical edge between grass & sidewalk using the edging setting.
Difficult edging between paver edge of driveway & grass, but the trimmer is light enough to maneuver at an angle to create this difficult edge.

Review 3 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I haul gardening equipment to maintain 2 rentals, don't want to use gasoline so use electric mower. After breaking 2 Sears hand edgers I researched electric ones and did not want to use the filament ones. This one works fine to cut through thick overgrown grass that has not been edged for a long time. Seems to be powerful enough. No complaints so far. Have not tried to use it for digging trenches yet.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Store

Review 4 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
Buy this, you will NOT be sorry!! So easy to use..I wanted something that was NOT big, bulky or used gas & oil. String trimmers are too cumbersome and heavy for me to carry around without back or shoulder issues. The blade made an awesome cut all along the driveway and side walk, takes a bit of getting used to, that blade will leave marks on the concrete when you miss..but that is one strong blade..did 400 linear feet in about 1 hour or less. Yard had not had any edging done since last year. I only edge every 2 weeks, the money I save by not having to hire lawn jockeys will more than pay for this edger in 2 months!!

Review 5 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I lost my husband 5 years ago and one of the more stressful things was lawn work. I have carpal tunnel and was so apprehensive about mowing and edging. I could not hold a weed eater upside down to edge, it hurt too much, and I do not have the strength to do it..I went to the Home Depot and the salesman recommended this edge hog. I told him I had lost my husband, and he asssembled the thing for me and taught me how to use it...I Love it, and except for changing the blade once a summer it is a breeze. I would recommend it to anyone, especially, older women or those with arthritis, carpal tunnel or otherwise.

Review 6 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I've only used gas powered edgers in the past, and like many I was hesitant in buying an electric. It had been many years that the property I had purchased had been edged. After setting up the extension cord, it took only 45 min. to complete the driveway. The sidewalks and even the expansion joints in the driveway and sidewalks and the street joints encasing the whole property. Believe me, I was completely amazed.
Pros: Powerful, Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate

Review 7 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
So, my husband finally decided that it was time to get a new edger because our old one broke when we loaned it to someone. After over a year of edging manually, he bought this one.
As is typical of him, he did NOT read the directions, so it took longer for him to put it together than it should have. In fact, he put the handle on backwards and had to redo it. But, once it was assembled, he went right out and edged the entire front lawn. He had to do a little bit of tweaking on angles, but once he got it right it was smooth sailing from then on.
We have both used the gas ones that are a combination weed whacker and lawn edger and neither of us like them. They are too awkward and always leave the edges looking choppy.
We would both definitely recommend this item to anyone looking for an electric lawn edger.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use

Review 8 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I am 69 years old (female) and have never used an edger before. This one was very easy to assemble and is light weight. There is a learning curve for me, and I have only used it twice so far. The second time went much better that the first time, so hopefully, it will get better with each use. I am very happy with it and hope that I will continue to be for years to come.

Review 9 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I have never owned an edger before. For four years I have been watching my neighbors edge their lawns while mine continued to grow over the edges of the sidewalk. It was time to invest in an edger, but wasn't sure whether to go with a weed-eater convertible type with string or the highly rated Edge Hog with a blade. My neighbor recently purchased the type with the string and had commented that it was very difficult to figure out how to use it for edging, and that it took him many long hours. I opted for the blade type, specifically the B&D Edge Hog. I was amazed at how easy it was to set up and use. It did take a little bit of additional time to tackle four years of neglect, but it required very little additional effort. I definitely recommend this product.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Durable, Powerful

Review 10 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I am a guy who reads reviews before purchasing a product. In the case of this edger, after years of using my heavy-duty battery operated weed wacker to edge my front sidwalks I took the plunge on this unit.
I could not be any happier with the product after 2 weekend uses. I set it on the deepest cut, which after years of using the week wacker required a lot of dirt to be moved from the edge of the sidewalk. This edger did the job great.
Now, each time it will be that much easier to get that professional look now that the trench has been created. Two thumbs up!!

Review 11 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I bought this edger to replace a gas-powered edger that quit after two seasons. I was a little bit anxious about using an electric edger due to the need for a long electric cord, but even with a 100' cord, the edger does not draw so many amps that it will not work with a standard 15-amp household circuit. I really like the very heavy-duty and thick blade on this machine. It digs through hard, dry dirt and makes a nice finger-width trench. It is adjustable for depth and has guards to prevent the blade from contacing the sidewalk or driveway while edging. It is easy to transport (by tilting and rolling it on the back wheels). Note: You can't roll it "flat" (on all three wheels) because the blade contacts the surface. Assembly out of the box was simple. Construction seems sold. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. I have a small-medium size typical neighborhood yard to edge. If you own a landscape business, however, this product is probably not for you.

Review 12 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I am very happy with this tool. It is very powerful and light weight. The only drawback is the cord, but for the price it is worth the minor inconvenience.
I have only used gas models in the past so i was a little worried about the power output of an electric unit in comparison. There is no problem. My yard had some decently overgrown edges and this thing had very little difficulty producing a good clean cut.
This is the third Black and Decker electric yard appliance I have purchased and I haven't been let down yet.

Review 15 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
After years of neglect on a courner lot, the edger easily helped the clean up. It was easy to use, light weight and did the job! I'm a 55 year old women, with not much experience with lawn equipment. I'm thrilled with the results

Review 16 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
I am coming from using a spade edger and rotary edger in the past. Those tools actually work well but it takes a lot of time and work. With spade edger, I am jumping on the spade edger like a pogo stick and moving a measly 6 inches at a time. With the rotary edger, you get a tremendous workout but the rotary edger clogs and the wheels don't always spin. And edging with a string trimmer is good just for maintenance of the the edge but not with the first initial edging. With time and effort, those tools work and have pretty nice results but I needed an easier way and the Edge Hog was the answer. First, I went over the edging that I did before and I zoomed over and the edging came out more polished than I ever did before. It looked like it was professionally done. Then I went over the part where the edge had lots of overgrowth with tough dirt. Was I able to go over it in one pass? No. Did I expect to? No because this is tough overgrowth grass with tough roots where I was literally jumping and kicking the spade edger just to dig in. I went over the edge with Edge Hog, used the spade edger to help get a little dig and then went over it one more time with the Edge Hog again. Sure I wish I had a gas powered $300 edger that I can zoom everything in just one swipe but I don't want to spend that much money and this Edge Hog made my lawn job so much easier and quicker even if it takes multiple passes on the initial edging.... After that first tough dig, I am zooming over the edges in a couple minutes with no more multiple passes. You should be too. I heard some cons on here like that they felt the need to push hard against tough dirt (*Don't do that. Let the blade do the work. Slow and steady on the initial edging), Edge Hog not working nicely in wet dirt (*manual says don't use it in moisture/wet environment), swerving? (*use the guide and the 2 black arrows that line up perfectly), multiple passes on initial edging? (*unfortunately that is somewhat expected because it is electric and not the powerful and very expensive gas models... Is it worth to go over a couple times just on the initial edging to save like $200? I think so.) I can't comment about the durability as I haven't had it that long. And I can't comment about the trencher because I haven't tried it yet. If I have issues, I will update this review. I would give this Edge Hog a 4.5 out of 5 and recommend it but don't expect the performance of $200-300 gas powered edgers that go through the INITIAL edging quickly in one swipe. After that initial edging, the edging becomes very easy, very quickly and looks very polished.

Review 17 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
After reading several positive reviews on this edger, I picked one up for myself. Yes, the convenience of no electrical cord is nice with the gas powered models, but the thought of saving a few hundred dollars outweighed the convenience. Works great overall. If you have some really rough and overgrown sections you'll have to run the edger over the area a couple of times but it's no issue at all. Easy to assemble, easy to run, and excellent results.

Review 18 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
We have a few hundred ft. of concrete and concrete curbing that had been neglected for at least a couple of years. I didn't want to wait for the adjacent lawn to dry out before trimming it back from the concrete, so I did have to stop the unit every few feet to clean out the mud and grass around the blade. (Unplug first!) It got the job done quickly and beautifully. I was impressed.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Store, Light Weight

Review 19 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
This edger works great. I thought I would be able to use it in the back yard around the gate to remove grass but it doesn't work for that. It works great for edging but if you have rounded corners its a little hard to catch those areas good.

Review 20 for Edge Hog 7.5 in. 11 Amp 2-in-1 Electric Landscape Edger
This is the 2nd B & D Hedge Hog I've owned. After not needing to do my own yard-work for a few years, I gave away my original. Now I'm back to owning a home with a small yard and I didn't hesitate in purchasing the same model I had before. Its a reliable product and true to my memory, it does the job. I just find it a little expensive...I would have thought it might have come down in price.
