Earthquake edger WE43 runs fine but the cutting blades spins slowly or not fast enough to cut. Is there a clutch adjustment? There is no dirt or grass impeding the blade from turning.

SOURCE: craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: how to change an old edger blade

Take a pair of vise grips and clamp the blade to a 2X4 for more leverage. Some old edgers had a left hand thread.

SOURCE: Blades do not spin fast enough to cut grass

If you got the right oem belt,ta\han you can look at the end where the cable attachs to spring and you should see a double nut adjustment loosen nuts and adjust to put more tension on the belt when you put lever into gear for blades to turn then retighten them .

SOURCE: I bought a Sears edger #536 796526. It dies on me.

Hi Tom. You are not doing anything wrong. That being said, your edger has a slightly gummed up carbeurator. I would go to an auto parts store and get a can of a product called seafoam. this is a gasoline additive. Add one ounce per gallon of gas and use this as the fuel for your edger. You will solve your problem in just a few minutes after using this product, I believe. Give it a try and let me know.

Trimmer runs but will not cut?


Is this gas or electric?
Sometimes if the trimmer cord is too long, the engine does not have enough power to spin it fast enough to allow it to cut.

Cutting head on 29cc trimmer will not stop rotating at idle,cleaned filter,changed oil, cleaned spark arrester, tried adjusting idle speed, nothing seemed to help


You didn' t list the model number. Have you tried placing the head on the grass? does it stop then? It has a centrifugal clutch, if the idle speed is too fast, it will spin. There could be a broken spring or dirt in the clutch keeping it engaged.
