    Most of my clients like the straight down cut on their edging. Just acquired a new account, and the lady really likes a deep "V" cut on here edging. How would I go about doing that with the Echo PAS 260 system?? (( Attachable components)).

    Thank for your help,
    Stephen

    Do you mean sidewalk edging? in that case I really cannot see any easy way of doing that with a stick edger.

    gotcha. In that case i still dont see a way to do it with a stick edger and keep it looking even and straight. Im sure its possible, just a bit difficult. I bought a "trenchblade" from the guy on lawnsite. I will let ya know how it works, probably will be using it within the next few days. its just a regular edger blade thats bent at the ends.

    I hold mine at an angle to the cement instead of straight vertical.

    using a trimmer to get a new edge on a bed wont work, you cant keep up the edge after its done with a shovel..
