    Other than using your trimmer, what is the least expensive edger that I can buy and it be a good one. I am not going to have to use it that much but would still rather use that than the trimmer.

    I can tell you what not to buy, an echo 200 edger. Complete waste of money, I refuse to use it because it is so slow!. It is so weak will hardly edge mud, complete wussy. It was 199 but wished I would have spent the extra 100 bucks and gotten the stihl or anything but this p--sy. The 3 times I have had to use it was a form of torture :angry:

    I have the Echo PE-200 edger which has done fine. I don't have to edge a whole lot, and it works great for what I do. It's probably the least expensive edger you can buy. For higher quality, I would look to Stihl, but only if you plan on edging a lot.

    I have an Echo PE-230 and have been very happy with it. The PE-200 is really a light duty unit.

    I have 2 echo PE-230's and have no complants except when doing very overgrown driveways and walks. On regular accounts no complants.

    Thought I'd mention the edge-it attachment. I just put one on one of my trimmers last week and have been very happy with it. It can't really cut through sod or even thick grass, but works great for maintaining a nice edge.
