Which is better a striaght or curved shaft edger.....let me know the how and why's
Straight shaft is the best. Straight shaft trimmers/edgers have a solid/ridgid shaft opposed to a flexible shaft. With a solid shaft more power goes to the ground.
Straight. Alll curved shaft trimmers are cheap. They are curved so they don't have to use a gearbox at the head = less cost to manufacture. All other parts on a curved shaft are cheap, too. Also, unless your about 5' 2" or shorter, it'll kill your back.
straight as a grizzly's dick.
I have both and like the curve shaft shindii over the straight shaft red maxx any day. The curved shaft shindii is lighter and easier to use when edging a lot of walks or curbs, such as 3 to 4 miles worth at a time.
I run the Echo PAS, so strait shaft.
Straight Shafts are better..for commercial use..
Straight shaft less vibration.
I agree also
Do most or all curved-shaft trimmmers have the line spinning clockwise - as opposed to straight-shafts spinning counter~clockwise?
