Currently, I use an Echo PE-200 stick edger. It works fine for maintaining edges, or cutting edges with slight overgrowth. Any kind of significant overgrowth, forget about it. It flat out sucks. I have to make 2 passes or more to get a clean cut where I can peel the sod off the sidewalk. It will bog down and the blade will stop just from dirt that has accumulated in the guard. I have to get something with more power. Is the FC110 really that much more powerful? I hear everyone on here raving about how it cuts through anything. I have had to rent a Brown Trenchers Edgemaster a few times for some nasty overgrowth. With the 5.5HP Honda engine, it has ripped through anything and everything like butter. The thing is, this is a 1200 buck edger. I don't even know what the going price for the FC110 is. Do I go with the FC110 or splurge on the Edgemaster?
