    Looking to buy one, for a solo operation who would only use it occasionally, whats the best kind???

    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.
