But NOTHING edges as clean and as well as a spade and a person willing to put the time in using it. If you buy an edger buy a brown edger. I demoed the others and while they do a decent job they have nothing on the brown. Not only does it edge but it pulverizes small stone and roots to small particles minimizing what you have to dig up.
I didnt approve of how he wanted it done but the neighbors must have liked my work because I ended up doing a few small things for 2 or his neighbors so I was really happy! I mainly bought the edger for driveways, walkways but I thought if it has enought power for any kind of bed edging that would just be a plus for me!
