Looks allot like a regular edger blade to me. We use a bed edger
http://www.brownproducts.com/index1.html I don't think the little trench that thing makes would work for us. I love the deep and wide trench that the bed master makes. Also the trench is straight up and down on the out side facing the grass and then sloped in on the mulch side, I love it! But you pay for it. I think ours was about $1800 when we got it around 6 years ago.
I'd be curious to know how it works and is it just for re shaping existing beds or will it do new beds? How much did it cost?

Hi, this is James, the Inventor of the TrenchBlade. We will be putting some new videos on the website over the weekend (weather permitting) to show some other uses and general techniques for using The TrenchBlade with your stick edger. If you have used it, please let everyone know what you think about it and give any advice or feed back on how you are using it and how it works best for you. We are in the process of making one that will fit on the curved shaft Stihl edgers to wrap up a few minor compatibility issues.

Thanks

What size blade to you normally use on your bed edger?. Lawnsite discounts, thats a good idea. I will call my web guy and see if thats something we can set up on our order page. You guys do deserve a discount, I have got about 45 orders from people on lawnsite and all positive feedback. If fact, everyone who has used one has been happy with the results and how easy it is to use. Thanks for the suggestion, and I will do my best to make it happen.

I think the center hole is to big on the blade to fit my edger. And I have no idea what size the blade is I use lol. do they fit all edgers? or to be more specific echo edgers?

They fit all echo edgers. The only stick edger that it will not fit on are the curved shaft Stihl models.

Mr trenchblade do you have any operating tips?

If you wanna get the pulverized soil out of the trench and into the bed,try running it backwards through the trench you just made!

If you run it backwards, make sure you are not next to a window, car, or person without PPE on!!!!

If you wanna make your trench a little wider, try to angle the spinning blade a little. this all depends on the type of soil you are working in and how strong your edger is also. That was a good question. I think I will add a tips and tricks section to my website going more in detail about how to use it. Thanks Alabama.

They will not work on a HE25F Redmax either. The clearance does not allow it to spin.
