    Hey guys, what is the most inexpensive edger on the market?? I will only be using it RARELY during the summer.... Would i be better off just renting one for the day when i need it or what??

    What do you have for a trimmer? you may be able to just get a gear box head attachment for it.

    however, if you did want something powered, Echo makes a 27cc curved shaft model you can find at home depot now

    Pick up a used Mclane or Proline off Craigs List for under $200.
    A Briggs is fine. 3hp will do and any one can fix.

    DO NOT buy a Crapsman or similar new at any price.

    honestly i used that same product for years. alot of hard a. ss labor was involved but i learned alot about edging. i use just a simple mantis tiller with a bed edger attachment now but i will never go back to the "half moon edger" ever again. if you can afford a real edger do it , do it now. if you do alot of edging you will appreciate it.

    I remember using them in the old days they worked but took awhile to get the job done
