I received my Trenchblade over the weekend. After opening the package and taking the Trenchblade out, it was just as I thought. A simple edger blade that was put on a metal brake and bent on both ends. But this is something we all knew. I anticipated using it this morning on some beds we were freshening up with pine straw. We arrived on the job site and started to put the Trenchblade on the Echo edger. It can go on one of two ways, the right way and the wrong way. We contemplated for a few seconds, then figured out which way it should be installed. I fired up the edger and headed around to the back of the property where the beds were. I started edging just as you would with a normal edger blade. My edger wheel was adjusted midway, so I stopped and adjusted it all the way up in order to get as deep of a trench as I could. I made the initial pass with the edger. I thought it was pretty good. But in an attempt to make it better, I walked backward with the edger, giving the trench a second pass in reverse. Doing this really cleaned out the trench. We installed the pine straw and I tucked it into the trench. The beds look great. I usually use a shovel to really define bed edges, but this is obviously MUCH quicker and does a better job. It would have taken me about 30 minutes and a lot of sweat to define these bed edges with a shovel. Using the Trenchblade, it took about 5 minutes, and it did a better job. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first about the Trenchblade. But I am now a believer. I only ordered one to demo. I will be ordering in bulk next time. The Trenchblade is one of those things that make you think, "Dang, I wish I thought of that!" It is well worth the $4. I highly recommend the Trenchblade. This will be one of those products that will become an everyday item all lawn care and landscape professionals will have in their inventory. It really is a no-brainer, everybody should use the Trenchblade.
