    I use ours all the time. The only thing I don't like about it is that if there is the slightest bit of moisture where you are edging, it will clog up. Other than that it is a great machine and leaves a good edge.

    I purchased one in 2011. It does a great job in ideal conditions in "redifining" the edge. However, to echo what previous folks have stated, with moisture, it clogs and does a really crappy job. Also, in my opinion it is slightly underpowered. I'm considering trying out what Stihl has. At least with Stihl you could change out the head and place on a more powerful head like the FS 250. I'm sure with Echo, you could do the same.....but the FS 250 is a BEAST!

    We have the Echo bed redefiner as a PAS attachment.....works great except for very wet conditions but our full size Brown edger does a bad job in wet conditions as well....

    ditto, works awesome, can clog up on you, but all will some. i did it after rains and was not too pissed off using it for a couple jobs. I would however would not recommend using it when overly wet....all day long......sort of work.

    Do a search on it. There's a few threads talking about it. I made one out of a stick edger head. Bought the bit and oem shield and had my own for just under $200.

    You also have to be careful because it can throw debris 20-30 feet behind you, which could cause damage if not watched closely

    This is correct. I only use it while walking it backwards per the Echo instruction video. Otherwise it makes a mess. It works great for tuning up existing beds edges in dry conditions, amazing really. Cheap for what it can do. But pricey for what it is and how it is built.

    Has anyone tried the new Stihl product?
