What size trimmer line is the best and most efficient to use for edging lawns?
We use 95...
95 square magnum gatorline is very tough and long lasting
I've used 080 round for years, got 2 or 3 more of those 3 lb. spools.
I find thinner line slices better, it wears faster but you get more length per volume so it adds out.
When you say edging do you mean trimming up around the house or edging the sidewalks?
If you mean sidewalks buy a stick edger, if you mean around the house .95 Stihl commercial green is what I use. We also use that for clearing grassy creek lines etc..
095 Gator Magnum is the best Ive found so far..
Sounds good. Thanks.
Bingo! Its good stuff and will last awhile
If you have a flexible drive shaft, .080 might be best because the thicker stuff will wear out the shaft and clutch prematurely. Otherwise, .095.
I prefer the round line because I find it spins faster and requires less power as there is less air resistance.
