Is the Stihl edger worth picking up for small beds? I would mainly be looking to use it at my house, and a few of my buddies. It will be mounted on an FS110R

I have had one for several years now, on one of the split shaft combi type power heads and use it a few times a season, mainly to establish the trimming grove along my driveway and walks, then maintain them with a string trimmer as I a trimming other areas.

exactly what I was looking to use it for. How deep of an edge will it give? Do you use the curved or straight shaft edger?

We use a Stihl fs130 w/ the edger attatchment. It will cut a new edge up to about 5 in. and does a good job.
