We use Stihl stick edgers, Edge every week, and you can do it as fast as you can walk. Gives a better look than a string trimmer. Any time I get a new location that has not been edged in a while, we cut it back a little each week....Chuck

If you are talking about a walkbehind edger, three horse is enough, I like Power Trim, Mclane is serviceble also. Get a iron sleeved engine [I/C] if you can afford it.

You can't go wrong with a Power Trim edger with a Honda engine, a little pricey but well worth the investment, you'll get many years of service out of it.

I am looking to get a stick edger, non of that walkbehind business. I can get a commericial duty husqvarna for 300.00 which is a litttle more than I would like to spend. I am going to check into some of the echo stuff and maybe some stihl equipment. Know of anywhere online that I can look just to compare prices and what not?

I have a Husky 3.5 HP w/b edger, Its bad,bad,bad. I keep threating to replace it but I only use it a few times a year, and keep cussing myself when I do use it.
