HUSQVARNA Edger attachment
works well for me
I bought this quite a few years ago. I find it odd that other people have had so much trouble with it. However, I bought mine directly from a Husqvarna dealer. The only negative is that the blade is hard to change but besides that everything works great on it. I have not had an ounce of trouble with it. I am not a professional and I am not that mechanically inclined. Another negative is that it is difficult on my hand but I have nerve issues in my hand so it is mot likely just me.

Not Very Durable
I'm on my third one and they just don't hold up. All three broke in the same place, the drive line right where it attaches to the trimmer. Going to buy a 327ES Edger at the beginning of the season, hopefully it will hold up a little better. On the other hand all my other Husqvarna products work great.

Assembly is impossible
I bought this as an attachment to my string trimmer from Amazon. The manual for this accessory is one of the worst I've ever seen! There is NO list of parts or what the parts are and the assembly instructions of the handle to the edger are impossible to understand. After reading the other reviews about the shaft breaking I don't even think I will continue to try and assemble correctly and simply return.

Completely Agree with the above
The drive cable broke upon first use. Not knowing it was broken I tried taking the attachment on and off several times and restarting the motor. This repetitive restart caused the starter to break. Ok so just go get it serviced right...wrong! Had to order a new part from Sears to fix the starter. Edger still doesn't work and no one will refund or replace it.

Embarrassment for Husqvarna!!!!!!!!!!
Bought this attachment for a Fathers day gift. The drive cable broke the second time it was used. It was working great until that point. Amazon sent a replacement next day. The replacement worked for maybe ten minutes and the drive cable broke in the same place as the first unit.
I purchased a 128DJx trimmer for the sole purpose of be able to add this trimmer. Now I have a trimmer without a usable edger. Huge dissapointment from Husqvarna on this product. This product earns a zero. Amazon customer service earns a Five Star plus for prompt courteous and hassle free exchange/returns!!!
