    does anyone use the star shaped edger blades or anyother type blades. what edger blade do you find does the best job.

    I only buy the star edger blades. They seem to give a cleaner edge with less effort and that's important enough for me to justify the cost difference. I don't know that the extra cost is worth the price difference on small properties, but it sure makes up for it on large properties when you have a dedicated edger man running for 8-10 hours straight on one job.

    Have you seen the Trenchblade. It is an awesome addition for your stick edger blade arsenal.

    Is the trenchblade just basically the same thing as a normal edger? Whats the difference?

    It is a specialty edger blade that will fit onto most any stick edger. It is flailed in opposite directions on each end that will give you a 2" wide trench as opposed to a standard flat edger blade only making a .125" grove in the soil. there are a few pictures on our website that show the shape and the demo video shows what kind of trench it will make.
