Hi! My name is Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village, today I would like to talk to you about the proper use and maintenance of a yard edger. Let's take a moment and take a look at proper handling of your yard edger. First of all notice before I get started, I have all of my safety gear on. I have ear plugs, safety glasses, particle mask and a pair of gloves to protect myself. Some of the manufacturer's provide you with handles that are intended for holding the machine while you use it. It is not recommended you hold it anywhere else or in any other fashion other than the way that was intended for the two handles provided by the product. Also, hold the machine out away from your body and it doesn't really matter which direction you go. It will work both ways. You can bring it backwards or your can work it forwards but either way, hold it out away from you and you will just follow along the concrete as you go, just holding it firmly which we will demonstrate here in just a moment.
