Aren't the Bedshapers like close to $4000? I don't have enough jobs lined up to justify spending that right now. I have heard that they are very nice, though.

there is a bed shaper brand on ebay. Just do a search for "bed edger". Last I checked, price was around $2200

One of the best machines we have ever bought.
3000.00 with the briggs 11.5hp. Just look up Little Wonder
Dealers in your area since Little Wonder now owns Bed Shaper.

If you do not have enough work to justify buying one then look into renting one. I can rent just about any make and model in my area. I do prefer the Little Wonder BedShaper as my personal favorite.

Blue Bird also has one out now that is honda powered with interchangeable blades and a centrifigal clutch and a chain drive. The unit also steers with the wheels closest to you so you have greater control. The unit retails around 2300.
I love mine

We tried the Bedshaper and hated it. It is horrible on hills and unless you have the pulverizer you have to clean up that ribbon of grass. We bought the Brown Bed edger. I think it is easier to operate and cuts a nicer edge. The Bedshaper is definately nice on flat ground, but who has totaly flat ground to work with all the time? Go with the Brown, you won't be unhappy.
