    I have a chance to purchase the 25cc curve shaft edger for 250.00 brand new.( REDMAX) Is this a pretty good deal or not?

    Are they pretty easy to start compression wise? I have the 8000 backpack blower.

    The wheel slides up and down and uses a wing nut to stay in place. A little different method than most edgers that are mounted to a bracket that slides at an angle and is held in place with a large knob. The wheel is the only thing that I didn't like about the edger, but is something I can easily live with.
    Yes, their "strato-charged" engines have very little compression and are very easily to pull start.

    The wheel was nothing new to me, pretty much the same way the Shindaiwas had worked. I looked at some other brands and they looked odd to me :laugh:


    As far as starting it, the best technique I have found is to use the throttle lock, put the choke on, fire it. Once it fires, it usually shuts off pretty quickly. Leave the throttle locked, take the choke off and it starts right up.
