    Amen Trimmer!!!!! I own a edger and barly even use it exept on new accounts to get the "groove" set. I feel that I can edge faster and do just as good of a job with a trimmer. Some taller edges must be done with a trimmer anyway.....I like to utilize my equipment to the fullest instead of constantly running back to the truck to switch machines! Toughest part is just teaching the employees to edge correctly with the trimmer!

    That closeup photo looks really good. What kind of grass is that and how high are you cutting it? I used to live down there and it sure don't look like bahia to me! That driveway looks like an opportunity to make some pressure wash money (if you have the time). Just do a small area to show the difference.

    Whats's an edger?????:D Out west here all edging is done with string trimmers. I havent seen an edger on any LCO's trucks in a long time. If you guy's take your edger's off your trucks put them in the garage or garbage can,you'll be edging like those photos in about 3 months.

    Less gas, less motors, less maintance,more room = more money!

    Tony,

    The grass in the both of the pictures is St. Augustine cut at 3.5", I go to 3.75 every so often on the first pic during the summer. I used to offer preasure cleaning but someone stole it back around christmas, sure do miss that thing and it made me some quick easy cash. Any way I think that drive way would be to big to do with a wand.

    I only edge with my trimmer too. I cant see wasting time with an edger if you can do a nice job with a string trimmer.

    Good Job!
