How To Use A Manual Edger

This is a wheel-based manual garden edger. It’s the Ace dual wield rotary edger, and it’s designed to trim the grass that grows over the edges of paved driveways and sidewalks. The serrated blades gut through the grass and sod with ease to keep your yard neatly landscaped. The blades on this manual edger are self-sharpening too, so they’re continually cutting and they won’t dull down after prolonged use.

So basically, what you do is grab the tool with two hands and you line up the cutting edge along the hard surface and the overgrowth of the grass or sod, or whatever you’re trying to cut. Then you work back and forth repeatedly to cut that area to give you that clean manicured look. It’s a very easy tool to use and if you use it on a regular basis, typically every couple of weeks in and around your yard, you’ll have professional looking results and be the envy of the entire neighborhood.

And That’s it. For more information go to or better yet, visit your local Ace Hardware.
