    I was wondering what everyone prefered when it comes to edgers. I am going to buy a new one soon. I sold my old one. It was a curved shaft. I think that the straight shafts are better with trimmers but I don't know about edgers.

    I only use straight shaft trimmers and edgers. Much easier to use.

    more power and better drive shaft with straight shaft as opposed to curved--true of both trimmers and edgers.

    I have two curved and one straight. I started using a curved the straight seem ackward to me. The straight will probably clog less than the curved because the guard is more open.
