You might not do them or need a walk behind edger anymore but somewhere, someone does - therefore they exist. They are pretty handy when your edging really long drives/side walks, like 1/4 mile+. Not a lot of fun doing those with a stick edger, especially if it’s the 1st time they’ve been edged.I use the gator edging blades on my stick edger and they seem to tear through the very occasional overgrown drive/walkway pretty easily. I don’t really take jobs that are so far gone anymore.
Now you know why they exist.The gentleman that bought it is that guy. He met me in a nice button shirt, slacks and polished shoes, driving a Land Rover.
