    I have added another echo 261? weed wacker to the arsenal!

    so,what goes better with that then a new Edgit disk.

    60 or so dollars,shipping included.These things are idiot proof(lol)

    i would love to post a link,but dont want to violate the rules :dizzy:

    do a search for Edgit corp in Kentucky

    great product

    last one is 3 years old and still in service

    also survived a fall from the trailer at 50 mph

    My crews love them. They like the way it edges the beds, walks, curbs better than the stick. Brickman only uses them also..

    That is definately an interesting attachment for the trimmer. Is it worth it? I am just starting into the lawn business. (I am actually buying my weed eater and blower tommorrow- stihl br-550, and fs 130). I wasn't planning on buying an edger at all. I was just going to edge with the weed-eater. Does the edge-it keep the line at a good length or is it like having no guard on? This summer I have been a weed-eater for a lawn company. So I know how to work one decent. Just wondering.

    The piece works as a guard.Secondly, it creates a nice suction while weed

    whacking as to stand up the grass,this equals good results.

    you can also get away with out blowing off because the suction i mentioned

    will clean off the sidewalks(see video at site)

    and finally,the disk serves as a guide for edging the curb and bed areas

    only drawback ive found is if you let way to much line out youll have to cut it

    down against a curb.

    Thanks......I did a search for edgit corp Kentucky and it did not find them, which is why I asked. I will buy one tomorrow. Imagine my chagrin when I found out it was simply www.edgit.com! Thanks for not rubbing it in.... :eek:

    Before you do that, buy an Echo trimmer IF you want to attach an edgit. They are made to fit the Echo.

    I often use an Echo trimmer with an Edgit. My other trimmer's a Tanaka. I edge with a Tanaka wheeled edger, stick edger, and Edgit (depending on the conditions). They all have their place!

    They work great, we've used them for about 8 yrs or so. But beware there are a bunch of Edgit haters on this forum. The Edgit works best with Echo trimmers because you don't need a mounting bracket. We love them because they make flat trimming and edging less work for us, as I am getting tired of trimming at age 48, so anything that eases my work load is a must.
