I am looking into buying a walk behind edger. I have a shindawa le230 but sometimes it just doesn't have the cutting power that I need. Has anyone used the Scag edger, it looks faitly simple in design so therefore there is not much to go wrong.

Echo does have a 31cc edger, but it probably isn't really any powerful more than that Shindiawa. <br>Does Tanaka still make their walk-behind edger? That's what we used before the stick edger. It was shaft drive and a really nice machine. 2 cycle 50cc I think.<br>

Yes, the TLE550 is still available. It's billed as the world's only 2 cycle edger (walk behind). I know of two places that have rock bottom prices on them. Email me if you are interested.<p>John

We have tanaka blade edgers over here.Not real popular as the throttle assemblies<br>tend to fall apart.As for other two stroke<br>blade edgers we also have the Atom edger,<br>which is similar to the Tanaka and also<br>the Victa tilt-a-cut which is a 3 wheeled<br>blade edger with a 160cc 2 stroke.<br>I personally prefer the 4 stoke 3 wheel blade<br>edger as they seem to be more reliable.

The only thing I've ever heard of it was it was the best walkbehind edger on the market. Are you referring to a stick edger, or a walkbehind? Any other feedback would be appreciated.<p>John

A shovel generally isn't as productive as power equipment.

I am referring to awheeled edger. I have a stick edger already. But I was doing a job the other day and it just wouldn't cut it. I had to go rent a 3 wheel edger with a 4hp honda, I think it was a kees model, but I really did not like the way it work, but it did get the job done quick.

I've been using a Mclane for 3 years now and have'nt got one complaint about it. Not sure what model #,I pretty much just use it. About the only thing I can tell is that it has a 3 HP Briggs on the original oil/plug.<br> To be honest with you, it has turned into a scientific experiment for reliability.<br> NOW- if they can only make the blades last as long I'd be sold 100%

With the experience I've had with Briggs, it would be wise to change the oil with each blade change. <br>
