    What do you all use for an edger....Stick or stand alone (3 wheel) (not sure the correct name for it) and what brand do you all recommend?

    I use both, I find that the 3 wheel is much easier on side walks and drives, and the stick edger works best on flower beds. I have a stihl stick edger and a 10 year old craftsman 3 wheel edger

    I prefer and use a Redmax stick edger; I have used many different brands, and also like the Stihl. payup

    I have yet to bog down the Redmax, the more I lower it, the more it pulls me…LOL! :cry:

    I find the stick edger to be faster, more maneuverable, especially around curbs and flowerbeds and just as useable as the three-wheel push edger.

    Hope that helps!

    It’s all good! Enjoy! Peace! :angel:

    No offense intended, but try the search feature. This and many other topics are very well discussed and referenced in the archives.

    I use a stihl fc 110 stick edger. Works great plenty of power, even on first time edges. If debating between brand do a search tons of info. That's how I decided on Stihl.

    Shindaiwa LE261 stickedger. I personally like the bent shaft edgers so you don't have to walk on the curb like the Stihls. I also have a wb edger. It doesn't get used much, just on first time edges.
