for irrigation i always use a manifold system. the main line coming from the supply to the manifold box is deeper.

all the individual lines to each zone are run with the trencher blade. it digs 8" deep, which puts the top od the 1" pipe 7" below surface.
since the lines are pressurized oly when the zone is runnung that is plenty deep

Here is three pictures of a before and after using the brown bed edger.
Sorry but the pics did not turn out that great but you can still see the difference and it is a lot less work to just rake the dirt smooth into the bed and throw a little mulch on top then it is to have to haul off the sod cuttings from using a shovel and your foot.

Yeah it does a great job especially if you take your stick edger with a new blade on to just touch up the grass line after you ran the bed edger around.
That really cleans it up nicely then.

I use to work for a good friend of mine who rented a Brown bed edger to do larger jobs. When I started my own business 5 years ago it was the very first piece of equipment that I had bought. I have to say its one of the wisest choices i've ever made. That machine is wonderful....but they are right it will go through anything in its path. Concrete, stumps, cable lines ... it doesn't matter it will cut it. It's still a great machine! I paid for it in man hrs just in the first year...now its all profit baby. Besides they have Honda engines on them. Need I say more

Do you have any before and after trench photos? I'm am in the process of buying the bededger / trencher from Brown and am getting alot of flak from the irrigation site on the mess it makes. Everyone is pushing the "vibe" plows.

If you have pics, I could really use the ammo!

i am looking at a bed edger but have found out that there are alot of sprinkler heads in the beds that i was going to edge. most of them are unseen because they become covered worth mulch, dirt ect. do the people with them hid heads alot or can they feel them before they do damage. I don't think replacing 15-20 heads in one yard is worth the savings in time.
