    I was driving 50 down a one lane highway and all off the sudden I see the motor on my Shindaiwa LE261 edger go bouncing down the street almost hitting a car.

    I flipped the rig around..(illegaly) and went to go grab what I had left of my $390 Edger.

    Good thing I have my good ole trusty Stihl edger to get me through for a while. I don't think this one will be covered in the warranty..lol.

    I don't know what to blame it on...the Shindy or the rack....im thinking more like shindy.
