    Opinions on which machine is best for re- cutting existing beds and also making new beds?

    BROWN with the 9horse honda. Bought one this season and great time saver, only thing is it sucks when the ground is soft.

    The brown is a pain in the A$$ to use "SOMETIMES" when you have perfect condition it works very well. We just bought a little wonder used. The brown works backwards you pulling it the wonder is hydro and runs forward. The Brown runs around $2000.00 new and the wonder is around $3000.00 new. We found this wonder for $800.00 :dancing: I know of a Brown new for $1750.00 in Cincinnati.

    You should check out trenchblade.com. It is cost effective, easy to use medium alternative to a bed shaper and a shovel. It does not go quite as deep as a bed shaping machine, but still makes a great trench for a bed line, a lot smoother and faster than using a spade. Especially when considering the cost of a bed shaping machine when the Trenchblade fits onto your existing stick edger.

    Trenchblade, nice product. Too bad I use RedMax edgers.

    Do you have a straight shaft or a curved shaft Redmax? The Trenchblade will fit on the straight shaft Redmax, and we will have a Trenchblade to fit the curved shaft Sthil and Redmax by the middle of the week. We just finished some 9 and 10 " trenchblades to fit on some walk behind edgers also. we will be finishing these new blades and get them up on the website and shipping at the beginning of the coming week.

    the blade on the little wonder is a specialty blade that is made for there machine but once I get your blade I am gonna make it work regardless.
