In the guitar world they have something called GAS - Guitar Acquisition Syndrome. I think it applies to lawn maintenance too, we'll just call it Gear Acquisition Syndrome. GAS hits whenever there is a job to do and, Tim Allen style, only the biggest, baddest tool will do. So I have a 1/2 acre lawn that I mow with a 48" walk behind. Get the picture? I have found that I cannot edge worth a darn with my string trimmer, even when I tip it up 90 degrees, because the string wanders too much and digs into the turf. So I need an edger and my choices are: 1) gas powered stick trimmer for approx. $250, 2) gas powered tricycle type edger for approx. $280, 3) an electric black and decker edge hog for $90 or 4) The edgit attachment for my echo trimmer for $60. So for the pros or homeowners out there, what do you use and what would you recommend in my situation? Any money saved can go to other lawn implements or more remote control airplane stuff (my hobby) but I really hate to buy twice - hence I usually buy more than I need. TIA!
