    I'm curious as to how often you all are going through edger blades. The one's that use edgers anyway. It seems like I am tearing through blades pretty quick as of late, but I guess I am cutting more now that it has rained a bit. Plus I think I am comparing to last year when I had 37 less weekly accounts. It's not a big deal, it doesn't bother me. Just wanted a consensus from others. Thanks!

    about every 6-10 properties, depending on #feet edged.

    On the stick edger I can get 20-30 accnts per blade. Make sure you adjust the wheel for wear, can usually get another 5 accnts in if you adjust it.

    We go through 1 a day. About 22-28 houses/propertys.

    Thanks. I'm not off the mark then. I've been averaging about 25-35 properties per blade. I appreciate the info.

    A star blade, will last much longer then a standard edger blade.

    I get about 15-25 a day depending on total feet. Sure wish they'd last a little longer though.
