Is there any benefit to using a star blade compared to a standard blade on a stick edger
the star shaped blade is really good for heavy edging (spring growth or yards that TGCL fertilize) where the standard blade is good for weekly use.
Thought about em but the price was a little high, for the 9 inch strait blades 99 cents.
We use the star blades,I think you get a crisper cut,especially if the edge is a little farther back then normal. You don't get the flip flop effect if you know what I mean.
went ahead and ordered one to try today as they didnt have any in stock Thanks for the replys
i'd go w/ the star if you can, it will definately last longer and it holds a sharp tip better, with the curved blades as it wears down it stays sharp, whereas the straight blades get a dull curve to them as they wear.
i used to work for a company in michigan that i would edge 1.5 miles straight one day, and two of us would edge some government houseing that had 7 miles of edging. after the 1.5 mile i had plenty of blade left, and after my portion of the 7 miles i'd usually have maybe another day of edging left on the blade.
