    I'm looking into buying a edger for the first time. I have somewhat of a tight budget. Is there any edger you can recommend to get me buy until I can buy a more expensive one? I have HD, TSC, Wal-Mart, Ace, True Value, and a Toro dealer in my town. Also, I've never used an edger, could you use them against curvy sidewalks too? If you can't how do you go about edging those?

    buy an echo PE 200 edger from home depot 200 dollars. they work great. I say HD because that is one of the choices. it will be better if buy it from a dealer though.

    that little stick edger will get ya going and it will last for a long time,

    however it's a bit short and if ya use it a lot expect back issues,
    this is if your tall.

    We have one and it's on it's 2nd year. it gets left out in the rain and takes a lot of abuse, simply because I hate stick edgers.
    to be honest all the abuse it has taken I'm really surprised it's still working.

    Good Luck
