    Hey guys. Who makes the best edger? I have both stihl weedeaters and echo weedeaters, and I am a little more pleased with the stihl. Any opinions on edgers?

    Stihl fc110....Its the only one I've used so I can't compare it to any others but its hard to imagine another stick edger doing a better job.

    I still have not found a great edger. Used four different ones so far, and haven't been pleased with them

    I use all echo edgers, Been using one of them going on 4 years now. I can't get it to break down (knock on wood). I have been very happy with them.

    I have a stihl fc75 it works great. Could use a little more power on the first time edging, but besides that it does the job great. If I would go with the 85 or the 4mix if you had the extra cash and could justify it.
