    How many lawns can you edge with 1 blade before you have to replace it with a new one?

    I wouls say it is more time than number of yards. My blades last about an hour and then they are pretty worn down.

    Same here.
    Star blades last twice as much and give a better edge but cost almost three times as much :cry:

    which one of those star blades on your site fits an Echo SE 230? I might have to get a dozen or two...

    I just picked up some Stihls that are twice as thick as normal and only $1 more per blade. I don't know if they've been out long, but I hope they last longer than the normal Stihl ones.
