I primarily do mowing, but may have an opportunity to do a large mulch job before mowing season begins. The job requires 28 cy yd (large for me because I work solo), and has 400-500 lineal feet of beds to be edged. Yes, I can do it by hand, but wanted to rent an edger. A local hardware store rented bed edgers in the past, and I stopped today to insure it was still available. Well, it isn't! I was told they had so much trouble with it (all he cited was belts burning up), they have taken it out of service. I don't know manufacturer or model -- I just remember seeing it sitting there and putting it in my mind for future reference. My question: Where do you suggest calling to learn if bed edgers are available for rent? I know one equipment rental place I intend to call tomorrow, but they seem to focus more on building contractor equipment (scaffold, concrete buggy, etc). For those who have rented, where did you find the equipment? My needs are too infrequent to consider purchase.
