Three power tools to cut an edge? I'm sure the end product looks great but I bet I could beat your time with my half moon hand edger.

I hated it! Can't use it when its wet because it clogs. There needs to be a pretty decent edge already in place before you see any results with this. Even then, the edge still looks like crap

Looks like I pretty much made up my mind where I am not going to get one based on what everyone is saying about it. Pretty much the machine seems to not have a big enough engine on it. Do you think a bigger engine would work better with it, for instance, the blade it comes with, does that it self do a good job or is the whole thing junk?

Thanks for all your input!

DRM: If the blade is functional, what I am thinking of is putting it on higher power/more torque stick edger, Just modify it so it will accept the bed blade. I have used the big self propelled units before but they are not great around trees, especially if they have shallow roots, thats why I have been debating about this machine
