    I've had one for 3 years and only used it once. The belt drive system doesn't seem to be powerful enough to create a new edge. It might be ok for maintenance of a current edge but not for new edging. Also the soil around here is pretty rocky and that damn thing sends the rocks pretty far, I don't like the liability. I would recommend renting for a day and see if it works in your native soil. Also I once was given a demo of an edger by a Toro rep that made the edge and chopped it up so there was no removal. I don't remember the model but it was the best alternative I've seen but it ran $1200+-

    I would go with the LW Edger. Much better build along with a much better support from Mfg. versus Husqvarna which is second to none in poor service and support.
