    call home depot, and ask how much it cost to rent one. take it home, do a couple feet and make calculations from there.

    put one of these in the hands of someone who knows what they are doing and you will edge circles around a machine.

    Yea right, id like to see you outdo my Borwn bededger.

    Just go rent a bededger, and charge anywhere between $.70-$1.00 per ft.
