I personally love Redmax stick edgers. Give it a try.

You should start off with a w/b edger, rented or bought. After that, a stick edger will work fine. Make sure you keep extra blades on hand.

new bed edges? Drive and walk edges? Drive and walk new edges can be done with a stick. A new bed edge, cut it with a stick and dig it out with a shovel.
