Think I just retired my spade. This year has been very hectic with clean-ups and edging beds. My leg was about to fall off last monday after 250 ft of beds. Then bag and haul off the clumps of grass and dirt and dispose of same. I saw a bed edger by Brown Manuf early on this spring and fell in love with the quality of the edge and fine dirt left over and pushed out of the way. Bought one on wednesday and have only tried it on my own beds but even with the very wet clay and still raining here it did fantastic. 50 ft done in about 2-3 min and thats while learning how to operate the thing. Ok, I'm really, really in love. I don't know why we haven't seen it here but I can't remember seeing one. You guys got to check it out. PS, if you are located in KY please disregard as it's too expensive, spade works better and I already threw it in shed forever.
