    I just bought a shindaiwa 261 stick edger. Did I buy the best one or is there a better stick edger?

    The " Best" .................ay?

    No best................. It all comes down to the person their Jobs and there apinon

    All my 2 stroke stuff is Shiny......I have a T260 trimmer and I love it and have loved it for the past 3 years

    I got an edger for my Shiny M20 multi-tool last week and its great!
    I have alot of Shindiawa equipment and wouldn't touch anything else.

    But thats just me............The next guy will probably tell you ECHO or Redmax..............and there all excellant pieces of equipment.

    But yeh............great choice

    You'll get many years of satisfing operation out of that.

    BTW: Why did you get the 26"1"?

    Personally I would not get anything with the 1 arfter it.

    i have a stihl stick edger and for some reason i can't get the wheel out of the way of the blade and guard. this forces me to hold the edger at a very uncomfortable angle, which makes my shoulder sore. i almost have to hold the motor up near my head. any suggestions?
