Agreed, it looks good. I also agree with the statement on pavement edges. Use the edger whenever possible. I believe they give better (and straighter edges) that look more finished. I can usually tell when the blade needs to be be changed on my FC75 because the RPMs are higher on the engine. You can also tell because you aren't digging in as deep, and doesn't make as clean of an edge.
How long they last depends on a lot of factors, so its hard to answer that one. I have changed mine about once every three weeks, to a month this year.
