I've worked at a golf course for 4 years now(still there part time) and we use a RedMax Reciprocator for all edging. I can cut like crazy with these things, I do all the flowerbeds there and cut 58 sand traps 2 times a year. But anyway i've been getting flower bed jobs like crazy and i've been borrowing the Reciprocator from the golf course but now since i'm getting so much work I want to buy something. So i'm wondering since I have never used a stick edger should I get a stick edger to do flower beds or get a reciprocator(thing costs a small fortune). What is the difference between the two. I know the stick edger is faster but does it do as good of a job when renovating flower beds? how are they on really over grown beds and when making new beds. Which one should I get. How come I don't see any lawn guys with them? How come I don't see any other companies that make them other then Redmax? Thanks Guys VS.
