My first experience with a bed edger today. Fast and effecient but, it popped more than my cherry. I just re-trenched some existing beds that had lost their definition. I rented it from my equipment dealer, after I corrected him on which way to direct the "spray". (He wanted to put it on the lawn instead of mounding the beds. I guess he never looked at a picture, much less use the thing! This is the same guy that tells me that sharp blades dont matter! He is the largest dealer around! I could revoltionize the industry here w/ sharp blades if I could get more people to pay my high azz prices BUT back to the bed edger & my inexperiece. The guy tells me that I have to pull it backwards & showed me sticker on the machine proving the direction of travel. This was news to me. I thought I would go foward. BUT no biggie, I'll just go backwards. to make a long story short, I ran over 5 termite bait stations and 1 sprinkler head!! What are these daned things doing in the existing trench?? I'm assuming I'll have to pay for this stuff. Homeowners weren't there at the time. I plan on calling them this evening. How much do you figure I'm in for? BTW This is barter work. I'm not getting paid, I'm settling debt.
