John and Royce, Buy the trench master if you have the work. It has several different blades that attach to it for different types of work. You can install that edgeing in minutes! I can trench 100ft neat and deep in approx. 4 min! The trench master can trench for R.R ties, irrigation, edgeing beds, grind stumps...... Well worth the money. I wish I bought it 10 years ago. <br>Chris
