    I just looked at Echo's website, and saw that the say that their shaft is a flex shaft on the BRD-280. Could this system could possibly be used on my Shindaiwa LE260 edger? It has a flex shaft (although it's curved). Would the 24.1cc engine on my edger be big enough to do it if the 25.4cc engine on your edger would be big enough to do it? Just wondering. Thanks.

    The 265 has plenty of power to turn the redefiner blade. The shield is a simple bolt on, not much to the unit at all. The casting, shape and size are all but identical. Did I mention it left a clean cut edge behind? With such little investment on my part, I don't think I'll charge any of my customers to "clean up" the bed edges. The time it takes to do one home, I'd just assume do it as part of keeping their property looking nice. Two or three a season is all beds really need to keep them looking sharp.

    That's something you'll have to decide. I'm not saying you should go out and do what I did but it seems to work perfectly fine to ME. I tried this because I felt the 265 will have enough power for what I'd need it for. Any modifying is done at the owners discretion.

    I may just buy one...or buy an edger and then just buy the parts if it saves money.

    Can someone provide me with the dimesions for the mounting hole for either the edger blade or the claw? I may want to try this on my Redmax stick edger first before I buy the PAS Edger for my Echo. If all else fails, I will buy the PAS attachment.
