Anyone use the gas powered bed edgers? are they hard to get used to? do they leave the same nice clean, crisp edges as a shovel does? Thinking of getting one, if they work good and save time. Just wanted to hear some peoples feed back before I search the area for one to try and maybe eventually purchase. thanks in advance.

I have a Brown and LOVE it, well worth the price tag! It will give you far more more consistant edge then a shaovel and be a least 10 times faster. Keep an extra set of belts with you when you have it at the job site, it always finds a massive tree root at the worst time. It will slice right thru a normal root but watch for those 4" monsters, they take the belts right NOW!!! Been there done that a couple times LOL

I purchased a few trenchblades this season and it was the best thing I did. I love them. I think they are pretty cheap, too.

whats a trenchable blade? whats it look like, what makes it different then the regular blade on an edger? I have never heard of them before, but would def try them out, they are alot more freindly on my pocket than a bed edger
