All:

I have searched all of last years comments on Edgit. There are comments about extra gas usage, lack of control, etc. There are also comments that is next best to sliced bread.

Any additional thoughts after another season with Edgit? Any substitiutes that compare?

Thanks in advance

Isn't it the add on for line trimmers that supposedly permits you to "edge" walks and curbs easier?? Why would anyone need it??

Turf dude is right. I think it would only be useful for new emplyes that dont know how to edge or if your not good at edging with the trimmer but i never used one so Iwouldnt really know.

I have gotten two accounts from a guy who uses an Edgit. It does not make cuts as clean as an edger and that caused my lawns to look better than his. Just a consideration.

You could get 2 accounts from some one using the wrong blowers.

It's not the product it's the operator.

On the contrary, a piece of line cannot provide the straight line that a blade can. Period.

Most people know that a trimmer can't make the nice sharp edge of a blade.

Yes but I'll bet I can do just as good with a weed eater.

It is faster than eye-balling it with a trimmer. A good edge must be in place first,done with a blade. Under cyclone fencing it is a dream, no more string hitting metal. I have had mine three years and love it. It takes more than 1 hour to get used to it.

I have lost ZERO (0) accounts to date for "EDGING".

I have gained very few for the reason of "EDGING".

But I have gain some due to "NOT" edging at all.

Why go back to the truck yo get an edger to edge 20' of sidewalk?

I have a few places with 100's of feet of edging and it's all done with a weed eater, and I bet you could not tell the differance.

I don't carry or use edgers any more. I have a stick and push edger. They do a great job of collecting dust.

We edge all concrete edges. Bevel all blacktop or asphault.

I use the Edgit on my 2601's
not so much for edging which it work's for touch up's. but because it reduces arm & back fatigue
on large trim jobs like cemeteries and hill sides (you know the one that looked easy till you do them for 3 months).
