Bad Bed Edger Experience Today!

Well, I hadn't used one in a while before today, usually only need them once a year or so, but I had forgotten how much of a PITA it is to use a bed edger. I know it didn't help that there was a lot of clay where I was working but it really sucked! I worked from about 10 this morning till about 4 this afternoon edging and my hands are soar and now have blisters (and that was with gloves). The best thing... I've got to do it again tomorrow, already behind! We've also got 300 bales of pinestraw and 3yds of mulch to spread tomorrow!

It was a Bed Edger brand, 4.0 Honda Engine. Real nice sturdy machine, just a little heavy though. I usually borrow them from a buddy of mine (also a competitor) but I rented one this time.

Could be worse Cameron,
Last year we hit a dual telephone line that (wasn't there) according to the Utility personnel that marked the property. WOW this WAS as PITA! We would have been liable if the painted marked areas would have been cut by the EZTrencher. We were away from the marked areas though which SOA. Customer was upset, job ran over, guys were upset, but we can now laugh how funny the lines looked spinning around the machine. :eek:
