    I heard some people using edger with double blade (stacking 2 blades on top of each other) on it.
    I have echo base model with flex shaft. Can I use double blade on it?

    I just want to give better edged lawn to my customer.

    I have never heard of this. What are you trying to accomplish? Do you want a wider edge? If not I see no point in wearing 2 blades down in the same time you wear one down. That would be a waste of money. Also this seem a bit risky. What happens if the washer and nut come loose? You may hit some kid playing out in their yard. If you are trying to get a wider edge edge the yard twice. Then the next week force the grove a little more till you get the depth you want. I would stay away from doubles on a stick edger.JMHO

    That doesn't make much sense as you'd be making a wide cut along the sidewalk. Are you sure you're not confusing this with double blades on a mower?? Go purchase a tri-blade and use that. They work very well.
