Just picked this edger up last night for free.
Does not run yet. Has compression but needs a new primer bulb.

Can't go wrong on something you get for free! Hopefully you can get it fixed without too much trouble.:)
I don't think it will be that hard getting it going. When I prime it, gas shoots out the primer bulb, so I think thats the problem. The good news is the tank was bone dry when I checked it before fueling.

If the primer bulb is shot, then i would also think about new fuel lines. :eek:
Free is good!
I was thinking the same thing. I want to get the carb off soon and check every thing out. I hope I can get this thing going soon even though I don't have any sidewalks to use it on.

The plan for this thing so far is to clean or rebuild the carb and replace the primer bulb and fuel lines. This is the first freebie I have gotten in a while. I might end up selling it when I am done but I get attached to equipment so we will see what happens.
