You cant fault him too bad. Its his first year in business. Reading must not be his strong suite.

I ordered mine on Wednesday and it arrived on Friday.

I will test it out this week.

I'm using my Edgit for the third season. I put it on an Echo high torque trimmer. The longer string never pulls the engine down with the high torque. I have several trimmers that I can use but usually use the one with the Edgit.

I had know about the Edgit for a number of years. After I purchased one, I wondered why I waited so long.

I admit it...I've never tried one, or even seen one in person. But, these things look like they'd get in the way even more than a guard. While some will certainly disagree, I prefer guard-off trimming so I can get into tighter places to do detail work. An Edgit seems like a big step backward.

I used to think pretty much the same thing. Try one. Get one. You'll change your mind.

How do you trim in really tight areas...like around a gas meter near the house OR near wooden fences & posts meet? Please do not tell me I'll need a trimmer w/o an Edgit to perform these tasks.

Let out more string and trim around tight areas.
