    We made the Trenchblade 40 to fit on a few stick edgers that have very small blade clearance from the back of the blade to the inside of the guard. The 58 is better if you have a machine that it will fit on, if not, use the 40 and still get pretty good results. The stick edgers that will only fit a 40 on there have a poor design to begin with. You need good blade clearance on both sides of a standard edger blade, so it will not clog with soil as fast. It is really just a matter of which blade will fit on your edger. Here is a picture of the different size trenches that each blade will make.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Any issue with clearance on the current Echo stick edger's? I'm looking at getting the Echo PAS-265 power head with the add-on attachments.

    Also may get Tanaka TLE-600.

    the 58 will work on any echo, the tankana I am not so sure about. Let me do a little research and ill get back to you about that one.
