    what are the pros and cons of a walk behind edger, as with stick edger? who strictly uses a line trimmer for edging?

    I use a stick edger now.. But I use to use a walk behind edger to do clean-ups. Down here if the grass gets too overgrown a stick edger can be a b*tch to claean a edge. Stick edgers are alot faster. I usually trim the bed edges with my trimmer..

    Hope this helps

    I've got a walk behind edger that works great, I like using it and it does a great job for severly neglected edges, but once I have got them in good shape with the edger I keep it up with my weedeater with the head turned sideways.

    I use a walkbehind if I have a long walk to edge 300-400 feet. Or if it is a new edge. I use a stick edger and an edgit to maintain edges along walks. I think all 3 have their place in lawn maintenece
