I purchased the trenchblade a few weeks ago and haven't had a chance to try it out until yesterday. It saved me hours. I had to edge the beds and mulch everything at one of my commercial properties. There are beds everywhere. I would have never finished if I had to hand edge everything. My method was: I went around and edged all of the beds and one of my guys followed me around with a flat shovel and a rake just to finalize the bed before the mulch was installed. I used it a lot yesterday and it didn't even seem to wear down that much. The price is very reasonable, if you ask me. When I first heard about the product I called them up to ask more questions and get some more info. I spoke to James Cook and he was very helpful and friendly. He explained the pricing, told me about the product and when it would be shipped. I got the exact day he said I would. I highly recommend the trenchblade.
