    It's very design makes it versatile. I have 2 Ryobi split booms and several Deere attachments for them. When I upgrade to commercial quality equipment I plan on adding at least 1 Echo split boom with trimmer and edger attachments to be my backups.

    thanks Tony, i was also wondering is the edger attachment as high of quality the blade part of course as the dedicated stick edgers head?

    I can't compare because I've only used what I have. I think you're asking about the blade? They wear out with use. I just replased my solid blade with a Ryobi split blade and it is really great for new accounts because it throws the material out of the groove. The solid blades were slow to do that.
