Customer Question

I purchased a four cycle edger from sears in 2012. I was using it today with the throttle set about medium. I was edging the curb in my front yard when I heard a loud noise. I think I hit the concrete with the blades. I turned the engine off and now the blades just hang. Is there a shear pin in the crankshaft to protect damage when you encounter a large stationary object?
