Curved or Straight Shaft Edger?

Hello fellow lawn site users,
I'm running a small lawn business and looking to add an edger attachment to my set of attachments for my pas230. I have one of the old PE 200 stick edgers but more and more I'm realizing I don't have room in my truck to fit a string trimmer, edger, and mower along with a backpack blower.

I'm looking at the straight shaft model which has more torque.

What I want to know from everyone is: what is your preference when getting an edger?

Also, what are the pros and cons to the curved and straight shafted edgers.

Echo SRM-225 String Trimmer
Echo PE-200 Edger
Echo HC-152 Hedge Trimmer
Echo PAS-230 with Articulating hedge trimmer, straight shaft edger, power pruner, and pro torque trimmer
Echo CS-370 Chainsaw
Husqvarna 130-BT Backpack Blower
Stihl Br600 backpack blower
