    I found a few threads that cover the Edgit - consensus is that they work well for edge maintenance but NOT for creating the edge. To revive the subject, what does everyone think about the Edgit? Would like to hear from northern guys with KBG and fescues as that is what I encounter.

    Can it take the place of a stick edger or should a guy have both?

    You can start and edge with one, I have but it wasnt fun, I prefer a stick edger to start an edge then use the edgit as a weekly maintenance. 90% of my yards are fescue

    If I were buying a stick edger I would invest in a brand that had inter-changeable heads so you can get more use then a trimmer dedicated to just edging.

    A push type edger is also great for creating a 1st time edge and probably the most powerful and easiest to use.

    While I love the EDGIT...if you have heavy over growth ...you will need a push or stick edger to get it started and then maintain with an EDGIT....I like the EDGIT also because it makes regular trimming easier and it saves line and protects me and the guys..IMHO ...you can't go wrong with the $60 investment
