View Full Version : Curved Vs. Straight Shaft Edgers

I was wondering what everyone prefered when it comes to edgers. I am going to buy a new one soon. I sold my old one. It was a curved shaft. I think that the straight shafts are better with trimmers but I don't know about edgers.

I only use straight shaft trimmers and edgers. Much easier to use.

more power and better drive shaft with straight shaft as opposed to curved--true of both trimmers and edgers.

I have two curved and one straight. I started using a curved the straight seem ackward to me. The straight will probably clog less than the curved because the guard is more open.

Straight shaft....has more torque.....to me they are better to handle.
