    I'm looking to buy a bed edger. I've found two so far, turf co and ez trench. Can I get feed back one these. Is there anymore out there that I can research. I would hate to buy one and it not work like it claims to.

    ive used the ez trench. It leaves a nice clean cut edge, and disentagrates the grass and neatly scoops it up out of the nice clean edge. it wont chew all the grass up, so you will have to sift through and pick out the chunks, but it does a good job of making the trench and pushing the material out of the hole.

    Mdb said it all, go with the ez-trench, makes the nicest and cleanest bed edge. People come by and wonder how we get such straight and clean edges.:blob3:

    Check out the bedshaper at bedshaper.net. I bought the walkbehind one three years ago and love the machine and have had no problems with it at all. Fastest edging machine out there, self propeled and allows you to walk forward while edging instead of pulling the machine behind you. Also has a transport speed to get from one edge area to the next in a hurry.

    The best part is the strip of sod it cuts off can be picked up in long slices reducing cleanup time to 1/3 the time it used to take.

    Contact them and they will send you out a video of the machine in action. Well worth looking into.

    brown bededger.........none better! versatile, alot of different applications.... trenching, edging, stump grinding, etc.....F780h $2199 delivered to your door!!

    click here to see!!

    bed shapers are ok, but they wear expensive blades too quickly (at least in our soil), some are bad at eating belts, then you still have to pick up the sod...but they are a little expensive!!! ( not biased...i deal them also if you want one!)

    stay away from the turfco, they aren't worth fooling with. worse than operating an old ryan sodcutter...vibrate you to death!
