Default John Deere Edger

Had a call from my dealer last fall saying he had a surprise gift for me, I stopped in that week and was given this walk behind edger, we laughed at the time as it's so old and Deere no longer sells them, I honestly didn't have high hopes but when I used it for the first time this spring i was shocked.

After doing some research I think the model is an E35 as there is nothing on it, man does it work excellent and you can even angle the head. This is more of a keep sake than a piece of equipment I would put on a site, sure wish I could find a new one.

I was cleaning out one of my storage sheds this afternoon and thought I should see if it still starts, second pull, played around a bit then thought I would take a couple of pictures.

If you are in need of an edger that gives excellent results and you can find one on Ebay or a buy and sell, grab it.

That is great! Does Deere still make edgers or did they get out of the market?

From what the dealer told me many years ago they had these made by a company in the states, then the company went out of business and for whatever reason Deere dropped them, it's a shame. From what I have found on the internet they were raved about in their day.

It's interesting how these things go. They probably manufactured a great product but at an unsustainable price. It's always fascinating to get an inside look at what went wrong with businesses.

This is probably what happened and it's a shame as they are an excellent working product, I have research and can't find a lot of information, I have seen them in the states on craigs list for $100.00 to $250.00 in mint shape but never found one that the seller would ship and there isn't any around where I live, I have even posted a wanted ad in various Buy and Sell's
