Customer wants me to edge their driveway. but its tar..... how do i go about doing that?
Pick the best line (Closest to straight or conformal) and cut it. Be sure to wear safety glasses, a full face shield, and.....well, just get some hockey goalie gear.
Trim away from anything valuable.
thanks.... ill borrow my buddy's goalie gear! hah
Tar meaning - blacktop driveway and not concrete? If so, don't go in to close to the blacktop, it'll will start to crumble if it's not properly sealed. Then you'll be up $hits creek getting it repaired. Stay a bit from it and be sure not to go too deep where it disrupts the blacktop/gravel base. Once you loosen it up then it's all downhill from there!
Turn your trimmer upside down and backwards, use that instead.
Practice on your own yard first so you can get a straight line.
Chances are these lines haven't been done before, and let your customer know it'll take 2-3 times to get them even, since you don't want to tear up the blades on the edger.
