Thanks for the additional suggestions, guys. I currently have 2 old beat up walk behind edgers, one that doesn't run (working on fixing that issue) and has a few other problems, and another that was somehow hit by a car several years ago before i got it from my brother, which it somehow still works okay, but is literally held together with wire and some painters tape
I'd definately prefer to get a stick edger, I have used my brother's a few times and it just blows away the walk behinds in terms of speed, both in how fast you can walk and the blade speed, as well as maneuverability. My preferred brands are Stihl and Echo, but I'm open to any other suggestions. Thanks!
