    Hi all,
    I have a gas edger that absolutely squels like crazy after I start the engine. Sometimes it stops, other times it doesn't.
    Any ideas on what's causing this and how to fix it??

    Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like the belt is worn that drives the blade, either spray it with some belt dressing or replace it
