    hey guys,

    for the coming season i am looking for a stick edger

    things to look for

    does it have enough power?
    do i want the straight of curve shaft?
    will it clog a lot?
    will the engine start in 1or2 pulls?

    choices considering
    sthil, redmax, shindaiwa

    sthil has the best customer support
    also what is the mix ratio for the sthil

    I would also look at what husqvarna offers too. I run husqvarna edgers and could not be happier with power and weight. NEver had it clog up before either. Plus price is good.

    I would go stihl FS85, plenty of power, never clogs, mix ratio 50:1
    and straight shaft
