The Power Trim Company got its start in the early 1950s when Roy Dykes and his son, Jim, began hand forming and welding gasoline powered lawn edger frames in Compton, California. All operations required to build a frame (i.e. bending, drilling, welding, and painting) were completed in a garage and sold to local outdoor power equipment dealers. The popularity of the lawn edger soon took hold with consumer and commercial customers who realized that no gardening job was complete without the straight blade edged look. Two models were manufactured back then (the Junior and the Senior) with many still used by their original owners today.

In the years that followed, the Power Trim name became synonymous with quality and service. Distributors and dealers were set up in key areas with no mass merchandisers to undercut pricing. Since then we have grown to be one of the leading suppliers of gasoline powered lawn edgers both here and abroad. Currently located in Cypress, California, we are a third generation family owned and operated business. With nearly 70 years of building edgers, and edgers only, our knowledge and experience go into every machine that comes off the line.
