    If you only use it occasionally, and for an estabished edge just about any of the stick edgers will do. Or you can get an old walkbehind type. I bought an ancient Botag at a pawn shop it works good enough and has the power to establish an edge in a hurry.

    i also bought a used wb edger for $50 bucks...Mclane is the name brand. That works very well.

    I have never used a stick edger, pretty easy to pick up on????? They seem a LOT easier to transport than the walk behind ones..

    good idea to have both,wb great for those overgrown walkways.and the stick great for weekly edging...

    I have a crafstman walkbehind, I dont see the need to spend a lot of bux for a high dollar one. I do the same as camland a walk behind for the overgrown ones and a stick edger for weekly maintenece

    I think Tanaka is one of the best,It is shaft driven as opposed to the belt kind.This is as far as walk behinds go anyway.
