    This week we are working on some new blades. These blades are going to fit the curved shaft Stihl and Redmax edgers. We are also working on some new models that will fit on some various walk behind edgers. If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know. We love to get feedback from you guys!

    You got them for RedMax straight shaft trimmers? Also have you ever tried it next to a side walk and if so what was the results?
    How deep do you have to go down with for satisfactory results on beds?

    The Redmax is boarder line, We tried to fit it on a curved shaft redmax and it almost fit, but not quite. I have some people who have used it on a redmax, but that could have been a slight manufacturing variance that allowed for that. Do the Redmax straight shaft edgers have more blade clearance from the back of the blade to the inside of the guard? I have not been able to try it on a straight shaft redmax. The TrenchBlade works great on edging driveways and sidewalks for mulch or pine straw areas. Personally I would not use it on a driveway or sidewalk that is bordering your turf. Some people may want a wide gap between the turf and the sidewalk, but I prefer to use a standard flat blade for that kind on maintenance application. The Trenchblade makes about a 1.5"-2" wide trench and having a trench that wide opens up your edge (between the turf and concrete) for weed growth. Lots of different landscapers do things lots of different ways, and I have been in the industry for a long time, but I am not going to try to say whats the right way and wrong way to do things. I know how I like it done but thats just me. Personally and professionally I think that a bed line should not be trenched more that 2 inches deep. The main reason for this is that if you trench the bed line too deep and your push mower goes in to the bed when you are mowing, it will scalp the crap out of your turf. Anything deeper than that is overkill, and thats the main reason that I invented the Trenchblade. It is a happy medium between a shovel and a specialty bed edging machine. The Trenchblade is faster and gives you a better looking trench than using a shovel. And is a lot more cost effective and easier to use that a bed edging machine. A bed edging machine does a great job, but I think it is overkill.

    I'm just down in Powder Springs and would love to give the blades a try. I too have a curved Stihl and this would be ideal for some of the properties I service. Also, I'm diggin' the up tempo porn music in the video... makes me wanna gyrate my hips while I'm edging. Great product and idea!
