    Echo PE 265 & PE 230.

    We and our customers like the clean, tight edge that it leaves. Nearly all new customers have asked for us not edge with a trimmer because they can not stand the large gap that it leaves.

    Do you use your straight shaft edger weekly for these clients? Bi-weekly?

    Why no curved shafts?

    I am usually too tall for the curved shafts, and I think they are not as sturdy; I could be wrong about that last part.

    I am not using an edger now but considering it for thicker edging in the near future.

    You guys who have recently voted and said you have a curved shaft... which model and why did you go curved?

    Are you happy with your purchases?

    Yeah, I'm 6'1" and I'm too tall for the curved shaft. Maybe if you are shorter it's OK.
