My job in life is to get this product off the shelf. I bought one off the internet. After two hours of use, it spun apart while my wife was using it and caused horrific damage to both ankles. Spent five months in the hospital, lucky to be alive, let alone able to walk or have a foot.
Not the outcome you want from doing a simple job like edging. Don't even buy for an ex-wife or mother-in-law.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
