    very nice.. have you had a chance to try it out yet??? Those seem to work so much better than the pull type bed edgers! I wish I could afford one. Hope it serves you well-Chris :drinkup:

    Nice purchase, we just rented one to use on a job today, and used it for five minutes, it is awful fast. What does one of them run ($)?

    well may take a month to get them.. but it does go fast.. i ran this thing at about half throttle and it chewed up rocky type dry soil in no time flat.. I was only doing about 100~ feet though. Its a little difficult with an open differential on uneven soil like a sloped hill but it moves fast. The 11.5hp briggs motor model is like $400 cheaper, and by how this Vtwin 13hp kawasaki engine runs, its just not needed. That one blade chewing up the ground could easily run full throttle on say a 8-9hp motor to reduce the cost of the machine. They offer a honda model that was even more.. I dont like honda engines though just because ive always felt theyre not worth any extra cost over any other engine out there.

    The prices for the models are $3k for the 11.5hp briggs, $3500 for the 13hp twin kaw and 3750 for the honduh.

    Personally i think they should use a small like 13-15hp briggs twin vangaurd on it so its not so expensive, it would be cheaper too.
