    Is this a throw away product?

    I picked it up used for 30 bucks. Edged 1.5 lawns with it and now the blade doesn't spin. I can hear something in the shaft spinning but the blade doesn't move. I reckon something is stripped.

    Probably a throwaway. I have had the same thing happen to trimmer heads on cheapie add-on trimmers all the time. Probably not that hard to fix, but finding parts would be a pistol and those are usually riveted/pressed together, making repairs difficult.
