    It's hard to beat stick edgers;quick,reliable and versatile.When it comes to edging along walkways,driveways,etc. nothing else comes close,IMHO.

    What are you gonna use it for? I"ve thought about one myself for overgrown areas and ditches, but i'm not sure that they have enuff chutzpah for it. I deffinatelly wouldn't use it on a nice lawn. I am currious how good they do in really thick weeds, though...

    well i got it going today seems to have an air leak in the Primer bulb.

    But it runs ....rough but i can tell ... i cut a bit with it today.

    It seems like it will be ok.

    I didn't want to spend the money on it if it they were bad about scalping or any other problems with the general design of them.

    What i will be using it for....

    I have one small back yard and then a large yard i have a ditch i have to walk with a string trimmer and i figured this would reduce my time on both ... the small back yard has a dog that stays inside untill it needs to do its bizns and guess who is watching where the string trimmer is going like a HAWK. This Push trimmer will for sure make my like a little easier not having to worry about
    having it slung up on me.....
    And i have some commerical accounts i can use it for and just scatter the clippigns b/c of where i would cut is around the back of the building stuff like that

    and it cuts 22" so thats like a small push mower that weighs what 20lbs instead of 40lbs

    so i think its the way to go and it doesn't take any room up on the trailor at all there is a Post with a picture on it of the one i got some where on this site ... just search for PUSH TRIMMER.;) ;)
