I have two turfcos best thing I ever bought, I get calls just from people requesting edging only after they saw my edge.

No offense intended, Trenchblade, but the Turfco edger is a Cadillac being compared to a motorcycle, both have appeal, but to different people! The Edgerite is one of the best built machines I have operated, and leaves a beautiful edge, with little work to be done after using, except to pick up the ribbon of sod it just cut.:cool2::cool2:

No offense taken diydave. I am sure that the edgerite is a great machine and does a wonderful job. I was just putting it out there because some people only have the budget for a motorcycle and they both get you from point a to point b and sometimes a Cadillac is just overkill and hard to fit into a parking place.

Ditto. You can make pretty good money just doing edging. I think it is a great alternative to the pricey other units.

Hey Trenchblade, when are you going to have the blades that fit the curved shaft stihl edgers, also I cut away the guard on my stihl edger would I be able to fit the current trenchblade on it?

we have some now, i am just trying to get my Web guy to get the buttons up there on the order page. If you want to order some, just get the regular trenchblades on the site, then send ma an email saying that you want the blade for t6he curved shaft. The part that was hitting was on the inside of the guard, which part did you cut off?

I don't know if your looking for a machine to edge straight lines and along sidewalks, or to create new beds and reshape existing curved beds, but we love our Bluebird Bed Bug, very stable, amazing results. It was a little weird at first pulling it backwards but we got used to it quick. Not terribly expensive either for what it does, Home Depot sells them for about $2500.

It's great to hear back from a company and or person that has made an error and is willing to take care of the error. This happened by trenchblade. Thank you for your response and your concern. Your going to have a great company.

I'm sorry to say....I don't know how the trenchblade works.....When the problem occured on the first order I thought it was going to be taken care of however, they dropped the ball a second time:confused:....and Im still waiting for them to take care of the problem..until then I still believe as I did when I ordered first that the trenchblade should be a great tool.
