    Here is a photo I took last spring while edging out some beds. I know in the past some of you here have asked about this edger, I just came across this photo to share with you all so you have an idea of how this bed edger will make your edging jobs easier.

    Looks like a nice clean job. I really want to add one to my arsenal this summer!:cool:

    I've rented them before. They make short work of any edging project. I did 100 tree rings ($5 each) in 2 hours with it once.

    Do you use this machine to maintain the edges?

    The trench seems to fill in after a period of time.
    I've picked up a few accounts that the old edge is dissapearing. I use my stick edger, but it dosent do the job that the machine in the picture does (to say the least!)

    Do you worry about hitting the irrig pipes/hoses?

    Does anyone know how much they cost. Looks like something i would like to add to my equipment inventory. Also does it have a Honda motor. Thanks.

    They run around $2000 to $2400 depending on size. They also have many other blades that you can get for them. I love the one that I have.

    Island Lawn and Earth tech, Yes it does have an 8hp Honda. I use it to edge at the start of the season and then I keep the edge up with a stick edger. When you have a new job where the edge hasn't been maintained, this machine will save you time and make you $$$. They also sell about 10 different blades for stump grinding , trenching, etc.


    PS Thanks Eric for posting the photo for me.
