    I have two turfcos best thing I ever bought, I get calls just from people requesting edging only after they saw my edge.

    No offense intended, Trenchblade, but the Turfco edger is a Cadillac being compared to a motorcycle, both have appeal, but to different people! The Edgerite is one of the best built machines I have operated, and leaves a beautiful edge, with little work to be done after using, except to pick up the ribbon of sod it just cut.:cool2::cool2:

    No offense taken diydave. I am sure that the edgerite is a great machine and does a wonderful job. I was just putting it out there because some people only have the budget for a motorcycle and they both get you from point a to point b and sometimes a Cadillac is just overkill and hard to fit into a parking place.

    Ditto. You can make pretty good money just doing edging. I think it is a great alternative to the pricey other units.

    we have some now, i am just trying to get my Web guy to get the buttons up there on the order page. If you want to order some, just get the regular trenchblades on the site, then send ma an email saying that you want the blade for t6he curved shaft. The part that was hitting was on the inside of the guard, which part did you cut off?
