Edging properly


LawnSite Bronze Member
I just bought a stick edger attachment. My question is: Is there aright or wrong way to edge? I mean should the wheel be on the concrete when you edge or does it really matter? Or should you keep the blade facing the concrete edge? I hope this makes sense.Thanks for any help.

We take the wheel off of our stick edgers. We can go faster and do just as good a job. If you do decide to keep the wheel on it needs to be on the concrete

DO NOT use your edger by pulling it backwards as this will wear out the gears inside.

Always walk in a forward direction with the wheel on the hard surface/curbing.

I would not advise removing the wheel as this should put extra uneeded wear on the unit.

You will find that an edger will ditch if you
don t set it properly.It doesn t look asgood as a
clean grooved line.My preference

I do find, also, that if you keep the edger somewhat angled ever so slightly so that the front of the blade cuts inward toward the curb, it seems to get a cleaner easier cut as well.
