Just picked this up yesterday for $50. Found it on Craigslist and it seemed like a good deal. Let me know what you think......
I got it to start in the sellers driveway after about 6 pulls and it had been sitting in her shed for two years with the same gas in it. It smoked a bit when it first fired up, but I figured that to normal for sitting for so long.

Also, does anyone know where I can get a manual for it?

Craftsman Eager 1 3.0 hp Gas Edger
Model 536.871100

Kool little hedge trimmer you found! Seems like the price was right especially since it fired up easily!

Go to the Sears website. You can enter the model number and get all the documents for it.

Thanks for all the comments. I was able to find the exploded parts diagram, but I still have yet to find a manual. Not that it is really necessary, the thing seems pretty simple to operate. It just would be nice to have the manual to go with it.

Thanks again.

Not bad for $50, even has the drop down wheel for doing curbing. The new ones don`t have that you just balanced the edger on two wheels, or get the edger attachment for split boom trimmers. The first 3 numbers 536 AMF (Murray) says who made it for Craftsmen. Just make sure you wear safety glasses while using it because even with the guard it still throws stuff at you.
