Edger rattle
« on: September 20, 2019, 08:36:26 PM »
My woodmizer edger rattles when at an idle. It is the movable blade rattling. 
It's not the bearing there is just a lot of slop in it. It is only at an idle. After it's revved up no noise.
Does anyone elses do this?

The shift saw or saws on most edgers  rattle at certain speeds. They also can wear out fast and eventually the shaft. I oil mine twice a day or more. Good edgers have thick chrome plated shafts. Sometimes moving the shifter will stop it or changing speed.
