When you guys are running your edgers...do you walk forwards or backwards?
forwards...... probably like most people out there
Do you walk forwards or backwards when you cut grass?
Do the same with your edger.
This is a trick question right? the blade is spinning forward so if you walk backwards with it it would stall out I would think and probably bind the engine also.
Both, depends on the thickness of the grass and how much dirt is in the groove.
Forward when trimming, backwards when I flip the string trimmer over for edging. Don't know why, it's just always felt more natural.
We walk backwards when we trim beds. And we will walk backward when we trim concrete because it leaves a better edge.
First cut of the year both leave the best cut with my echo. I dont walk backwards, but do a forward backward motion as I walk forward. After its cut in a quick walk forward leaves it looking great
Forward here always.
Thanks, I tried mine out for the first time the other day and it seemed to work better to go backwards or the forward backwards. I do agree after the first or second time walking forward would be the way to go.
