I finally got to use the Trenchblade for the first time today. It is GREAT! It does a really good job at edging beds. All we had to do is go around with a spade and loosen hard pact soil away from the edge afterwards. It was so easy. I went forward then walked backwards with it and it made a 3in. edge perfectly. It was really surprising. Great product Trenchblade! The only thing i found wrong is it doesn't like the sidewalk edging to much, my blade started to fray at the ends. But for the $, just buy more.
