Not really. What are your thoughts on it? Do you operate one? Do they do a better job than what you've seen in the pictures I posted?

Yes I use one and for the bigger jobs you can't beat it. 300 ft in like 3 mins. Its way faster than a shovel. And the lines stay more uniform and consistent. Dont get me wrong your guys do a hell of a job it was hard for me to tell until I saw the pic where u guys did the perimeter hedge row. Give me your email and ill send you some before and after pics.

Saw the pictures, everything looks good, Thanks for sending them! I will try it in a job or two this year. I think it would only work in a few of our accounts so purchase of one probably wont happen.

Im still renting myself. On your repeat accounts I wouldn't use it. They are great for new beds or very old beds. Thanks for the compliment and keep up the great work.

ya the bed edgers r nice but the ones u usually rent r the ones that u have to walk backwords with n lug all around the yard, my opinion is they dont even come close to the resolts u can get with a shovel, the only bed edger id ever buy would be little wonders...its self propelled, u talk forward with the machine and its capable of cutting the beds deep.
