    We have one Stihl FC75 and several Echo PE311's. I like the Echo the best.

    None, I bought a stick edger to start the year and have had it off the trailor 3 times. A good weedeater opertator can edge much quicker and do just a good of job if not a better job.

    One with a damn shield on it. Mine kept falling off last year and I took it out today and edged 2 propertys with just the blade swinging and it's not fun. Eventually looked like a dumbass homeowner doing it cuz I had it upside down and all sorts of **** trying to get the blade to spin away from me.

    The fc-55 is a homeowner model.

    Get either the FC-75 or the FC-100.

    I have the 100 and couldnt be any happier. Expensive suckers though.

    If you are trying to keep the price down, go with the echo pe 200 for about $200. It's a little under powered, but I like it as well as the homeowner Stihl for less$.
