had both.....sold the walkbehind........hand helds are lighter,take up less space (trimmer rack) and better on fuel.....

I use handhelds I think they are easier for every day maintenance.But if the edges are very over grown the walk behind is better. Once edges are established I would use the hand held. I would buy the hand held and if you need the walk behind rent one.

I bought a used McClain wb edger for $100 starts first pull. I use that every spring to get the initial edge then I have an edg-it attachment for my echo. I know most don't like edg-it but it does a great maintenance job.

I only use a walk behind (more power) for the initial edging then use my trimmer.
