    Anyone have any input on the Tanaka TLE-600 walk behind edger? I have a chance to pick a mildly used one for $225 and wanted to know what everyone thought! I have a stick edger, but have picked up a few new props. with a ton of edging required. I have noticed that some have an extra wheel for curbs. Is the something I can purchase or does it just come on the newer ones? The one I am looking at doesnt have this! Thank you!

    It's an extra that you can get from any Tanaka dealer

    How does this do on curbs without the curb kit or drop down wheel? Is it still functional on raised curbs? Thanks!

    There are 2 ways to edge a curb with out the drop down wheel, one is to edge from the grass side, the other is to balance the edger on one wheel and do it on the curb side, both are a PITA. The TLE 600 is fantastic for walks and open areas, great with the wheel kit for curbs.
