    What kind of edger do you use? I've been looking a few different ones and I can not find any kind of reviews on them. I am using it for apartment complex walks. I didn't know if I should get a heavy duty one or if I'd be safe getting a smaller one.

    Thanks!!

    For doing sidealks I use a little wonder edger. You get what you pay for, my advice s to by a commercial grade unit rather than a sears craftsman or something from lowes or hd.

    I love the Stihl 4-mix edgers.

    Light, durable, and the 4 stroke engine has enough torque to power through tough sections without having to worry about burning up your motor.

    They can be a little hard on the arms on larger sections though, but you would save massive amounts of time.

    I had been looking at a Troy-Bilt 4-cycle. Should I stay away from this?

    I'm sure it would work for a short while, but in my opinion...troy-bilt stuff is sh**. Everyone I've ever known who has used their stuff, it has not lasted long. Spend a couple hundred bucks and get something decent.
