    What kind of Bed edgers does my fellow landscapers prefer? I have rented until I am convinced I now need one. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks :blob3:

    i like the stick edges becuase they dont take up any room in the trailers. you dont have to pull out anything to get to the mowers which you use first. plus you can position the stick edges to any angle

    String trimmers work fine for me. When they can't do it, a good ol' fashioned titanium shovel does the rest. For sidewalks I use a Little Wonder W/B edger.

    Are you talking about creating them or maintaining them? Big difference. We have a Brown Edger to create and to gets ones in rough shape back to having the crisp edge they should have. After that, stick edger.

    I rented the new bluebird 'BED BUG' this past season and although I can't compare it to the others it did a nice job. Very easy to use even though its not self propelled. I made alot of nice 4" deep and 4" wide trenches with it. I also believe there are cable laying attachments for it but I am not sure so check the website.

    Check out Turf Teq and the Sidewinder. Looks like a promissing unit.

    Brown Bed Edgers are my personal favorite.
