x2. I have both a curved shaft stihl edger, and the 3 hp edger on wheels. The one one wheels sits in the garage most of the time. the problem is that it works great if you have LOTS of edging to do, and its all along sidewalks and driveways. BUT....if you have to edge along a curb, its a waste of time. The stick edger works better under those conditions, and is easier to transport.
