Edger Southland Swle0799 79cc Walk Behind Gas Lawn Edger



Southland SWLE0799 Gas Lawn Edger Review

The Southland SWLE0799 easy-starting gas edger features a blade in the shape of a triangle and a lever located near the handle that provides access to five different depth settings. In addition to its advantages, the Southland SWLE0799 Gas Grass Edger operates admirably as a conventional walk-behind tool designed to edge your lawn. This machine is simple to start; just like many of the other models, we reviewed for our guide to the best lawn edgers (which opens in a new tab) and even some of the models we reviewed for our guide to the best gas lawn mowers (which opens in a new tab).

The blade is nine inches and is triangular. There is a lever located near the grip that allows for five different cutting depth settings. Determine the appropriate cutting depth for your project, whether a lawn, a curb, or garden edging, and proceed accordingly. A manual recoil simple start is featured on the engine of the Southland SWLE0799, which is a 79cc overhead valve model. You can create a beveled edge by tilting the blade 15 degrees to the left or right. You can adjust the three triangular blades to reach a cutting maximum of 2.5 inches.

By adjusting the cutting depth of the Southland SWLE0799 Gas Lawn Edger, you can also vary its reach, which enables you to do bevel cutting at a greater distance from the sidewalk. Trencher work is done by the machine when it is instructed to cut at a deeper depth. Because you can adjust the blade angle to -15 degrees, 0 degrees, or 15 degrees, you can give your yard a unique appearance by varying the cut angles. Using this edger to edge a curb is a straightforward and time-saving process. Its front and rear wheels are adjustable, so you can adjust them to the curb and the area you wish to edge. After the wheels have been positioned so that the cutting edge is aligned, lowering the reels will cause the machine to become level. A support rod provides additional steadiness, making trimming near the curb an easy and risk-free task.

Compared to other edgers on the market, the 79cc walk behind gas lawn edger is characterized by its low noise level and simple assembly process. It is heavier than others, so if you need a lightweight lawn edger, look at our evaluation of the Ego Power+ MEO800 Cordless Electric Edger (opens in new tab) or the stick-style Black & Decker LE750 (opens in new tab) instead. Both of these edgers are cordless and run on electric power.

Because the engine in this gasoline edger is a four-cycle one, there is no need to combine oil and gasoline for it to work effectively. Included in the transaction is an entire bottle of high-quality motor oil. This model does not come equipped with a push-button start but rather a recoil start that can be activated with a simple pull.
