I just thought I would share my thoughts on my new Edgit. I bought this to go on my new Echo 280S. The types of lawns are Bermuda, StAgaustine and grass weeds [dalis grass-crab grass types]. First off I noticed that my speedfeed head does not work well with this, it covers up the top and you can't see the arrows. I tried my next favorite head [husqvarna one] but this would not work either because the line rubbed on the inside edge of the disk and would rub the line into in a couple of seconds.I bought a U-turn head, I do not like it as much speedfeed but it is ok. Now for the edging part. I know why they make so many types of edgers, because they all have their place. Where I liked the Edgit the most is the places with Islands because I could edge and trim at the same time. At a couple of apartment complexes I do the sidewalks have the dirt even in places and several inches down in places so this was nice for that because I could edge then trim without walking the same sidewalk twice. I will have to say on long and even places my stick edgers are faster and easier, but this Edgit for sure has its places. I was impressed as far as the trimming goes and it does have a strong suction. If I had to vote for the best looking edge it would be 1st stick edger 2nd Edgit 3rd standard trimmer. I know everbody has different needs but the Edgit is something that works well for me.
