Any feeling for how many inches of blade wear should warrant replacement? Or what other criteria should indicate need for replacement?

I would say when the blade is worn enough that it’s no longer cutting as deep as you want it to.

That makes sense. I asked because I am having a difficult time using this edger, both last year and now this year. Not trying to address this here until I try to figure it out myself. Going to do that today. Might start another thread later.

Secondary if you notice the blade getting to thin around a third of its original width you run the risk of snapping sections of ot off iff you hit a stone burried somewhere wich then may result in it flying away causing damage or injury. This does depend a bit on the wear pattern though.
