I think the main thing I would use it for would be edging around beds, tall grass, overgrown edges, places I don't won't grass everywhere and any places where there's rock or pea gravel. I just got tired the other day getting hit in the face with a bunch if tiny pebbles and any amount of money would be worth not having that happen again. Plus getting grass shot up my nose doesn't feel good either.

Since it can edge beds and sidewalks, plus not throw stuff everywhere, I'll probably get it if I can find one. I still will favor the weedeater but it looks like it could easily pay for itself in a month.

You should be able to order one from any Redmax dealer. Not sure how many actually stock them. If you get one let us know how it works out. I think I'm going to have to replace mine in the future.

Ok I'll check them out, probably won't get one till later this year though because the price. I'm going to get it when I need to do a bunch of bed redefining, so it may not be till spring next year.

I have another question and it's about a classen aerator. I was up at my local Home Depot last night grabbing some siding for my shed and I noticed they were selling one of the rentals. It was $900 with 80 hours, times looked sharp and looked like a great deal. Looks like that thing would last forever but they are selling it. I asked the guy and nothing's wrong they just sell them after a certain amount of time. How fast can I make my money back on that thing. I don't know much about them but it seems like a bargain.
