    I was wondering if anyone has any info on the Sidehitcher? I had one given to me and would like to get an idea of what its worth, how well it works, that kind of thing. I do mainly maintenance, so I really have no use for it, but for free I could'nt pass it up. This thing has less than an hour on it. It threw dirt all over my feet the first time I tried it but after I flipped the blades around the right way, It worked perfectly. Thats probably why he got rid of it in the first place!
    Thanks

    Sorry guys, Its a bed shaper or a bed edger. It's on a cart but can also be mounted on the side of a mower.

    I mean,


    No it is a piece of crap and not worth a thing.

    I will pay you $20 for the steel tho and recycle it. :)

    Never seen one before, not in my area. Looks like a light weight unit.

    If you are still out there...this was an old post. I am sure your sidehitcher still works though! The blades might have been put on backwards but I am sure you can contact the company directly for help. They have a website sidehitcher.com where i just purchased a newer model. It works great!

    THe sidehitcher is a cool concept but does not work well for smaller areas where a walk behing mower can not fit. i prefer the EZ trech.

    Echo has a hand held unit with a simular cutter head. It works good once you get the hang of it. Throws stones all over.
