Just purchased the subject power head with edger attachment EA0800. I see the power head has two speeds:

  • What speed setting should I use for the edger?
  • Is there a chart showing speed setting for all tools?
  • Do you need to change the speed while the power head is on or stopped?
Thanks

(Oh no, now that I have the power head I'm getting an itch for that pole saw - must resist!)

Michael, I prefer the higher speed with the edger but it’s just a matter of preference. You may find it easier to control on low speed, or you may want to just let’r rip! :-)

Thanks - there is a switch for two speed modes so I thought maybe there were speed restrictions on certain attachments.

No restrictions as far as I'm aware.

Oh, and the string trimmer attachment is almost SCARY powerful in high speed mode.  Just thought I'd throw that out there... makes you feel unstoppable.
