    I think for commercial properties the edges will be ok, but for residential they would likely need a touch up to make then a little sharper.

    I hit it with the re-definer, then went back and beveled the edge with a string trimmer, made it look perfect. still only took 1/3 of the time as hand edging.

    I've used mine a good bit now and I have to say it does pretty good. I've used it on my personal beds while the soil was wet and it still did pretty well. I'm running the 130 as well, haven't tried it on my 90 yet. I think it would definitely work on the 90, just maybe not as good as the 130 in harder soils.

    Not sold on the reports and the images.

    I'll stick with the yard boss head on my 90. Even in wet conditions it's no issue.

    That and I like versatile equipment, not just a one use type of deal.

    I got the KM110 this morning since it was on sale, had to get the bed re-definer ordered because they were all sold out. So I will add another review to the thread when I'm able to use it.

    Does not throw the dirt back into the bed when wet. In dry conditions it works well. Still saves a ton of time, even with wet soil. I will post some pics when I have a change to take some. Still trying to catch up from all the rainouts.

    I picked this up today and put it on my 110. When the soil is dry it is flawless. When the soil is wet it likes to get jammed up in the guard, so you have to shut it off clean it etc. We tried spraying something on the inside of the shield to help with sticking but it really only made cleaning it off a little easier. Overall I'm still happy with the purchase and know for sure it is already better than any other method of edging I have tried.
