    i just did my first edging job with my new Bed shaper and all i can say is...WOW i'll now throw all my hand edging tools as far as i can into the woods.i used to hate this time of year doing hand edging on all the beds.i did my house last night, it used to take me 2 hrs to hand edge all my beds. i did it in 25 min's that includes picking up the turf and me learning how to operate the machine.

    Congrats....they are awesome machines. I normally get all my clients together and then rent one. Hopefully one day I'll be able to buy one as well.

    You didn't want to buy the one to go on your Walker? I can get that attachment new for $2800. I rented one from my Walker dealer and I will agree, WOW!
