    Has anyone used one of those side mount edgers that Walker sells? Claim is that you can do 3 -4 miles an hour. They show the guy edging from the street side. I would like to be able to stay off the street and edge from the other side. We have an HOA property that has a long common area that is on both side of the street and has sidewalks.

    I am a little surprised nobody has one of these edgers or even seen one of them used?

    are you talking about the walk behind or the one that mounts on the tractor?
    ive cut lots of beds with the tractor mounted bed shaper and it works awesome. cant see why a walk behind wouldnt be the same. i guess it would depend on how easy it is to adjust blade depth on the fly.
    on the tractor its easy, dont know about the walk behind though.

    Hes not talking about that. He means the edger that does concrete. I have no experience nor have I seen it.
