    I just thought I would share my thoughts on my new Edgit. I bought this to go on my new Echo 280S. The types of lawns are Bermuda, StAgaustine and grass weeds [dalis grass-crab grass types]. First off I noticed that my speedfeed head does not work well with this, it covers up the top and you can't see the arrows. I tried my next favorite head [husqvarna one] but this would not work either because the line rubbed on the inside edge of the disk and would rub the line into in a couple of seconds.I bought a U-turn head, I do not like it as much speedfeed but it is ok. Now for the edging part. I know why they make so many types of edgers, because they all have their place. Where I liked the Edgit the most is the places with Islands because I could edge and trim at the same time. At a couple of apartment complexes I do the sidewalks have the dirt even in places and several inches down in places so this was nice for that because I could edge then trim without walking the same sidewalk twice. I will have to say on long and even places my stick edgers are faster and easier, but this Edgit for sure has its places. I was impressed as far as the trimming goes and it does have a strong suction. If I had to vote for the best looking edge it would be 1st stick edger 2nd Edgit 3rd standard trimmer. I know everbody has different needs but the Edgit is something that works well for me.

    for the speed feed just paint the arrows on the side of the head so you can see them

    Or just look thru the holes and spin the head...when you see daylight out the other side you're good to go.

    I did a job today where this thing was well worth the price. I have a place with a pipe and cable fence that is full of goat heads in the pasture area. I am useally coverd in goat heads when I trim this fence, but today I had a total of three.
