Use edger every couple months. Use weedeater other than that.

Better at using a weedeater than edger, keep those edges sharp. Edger does a good job of not letting the dirt look all trashy and gives a dirt edge.

re: Do you guys use an edger or just edge with your weedeater?
The real question is how much edging do you have to do?

If it's alot definitely go with the steel blade edger with a wheel. It will save your back and arms and I find it quicker since it just rolls along the ground. You don't really have to support any weight.

If you only have a couple hundred feet of edging then this won't matter to you. I have probably 700-800 feet to do so the edger saves me alot of trouble

Edge and weedeat with my echo 58v electric weedeater. Does great, even on my corner lot with sidewalks. I edge, if I had to guess, probably 350 ft of sidewalks and roads. The echo battery handles them well

If I have to really cut an overgrown edge, I use the edge attachment. If I'm just doing maintenance on an established edge, I use the weedwhacker.

re: Do you guys use an edger or just edge with your weedeater?
I have the echo pas with the trimmer, edger and I have limb trimmer(pole saw) as well. Starts everytime. Meanwhile, the stihl blower I purchased and is only 3yrs old needed a carb replacement. It’s a finnicky fricker....

Highly recommend the echo, but don’t buy that bitch from Home Depot. Find a local place.

My weedeater has adjustable rotating head for edging. It gets the job done.

I have a black and decker with two rechargable batteries and it works great. Has a wheel to where you can rotate to weed eat or edge. Less than 100 bucks I believe.

It really depends on how much you use it or how much area you have to do. I don't recommend a weak battery powered blower, though.

Get it started with an edger. Maintain with trimmer. Touch up with edger if need be.

I use the edger about once a month

I mow/weed eat every week, so the other times I just use the weedeater to keep maintained till time I edge

I have both and always use the edger. It is SOOOO much easier than the trimmer.

Edging with a string trimmer is an artform. I'm not perfect, but I cut so many yards when I was a teenager I'm pretty good even now. Some people hack it up.

Flip side to that is you're using it more so you're less likely to run into gummed up carbs. I used mine pretty much year-round.

I've mastered using my weedeater as an edger, so I don't see a reason to incur the expense, even though I love buy new outdoor equipment.

I have the Echo pas225 and I’ll use the edger every other month then the weed eater for my weekly trimming. Also Trufuel has worked very well.

re: Do you guys use an edger or just edge with your weedeater?
I own an edger that I got for free from my neighbor. It had a fouled spark plug and bad gas in it. Tried to give it back but he opted for a lawn service (he's an elderly man). I've run non ethanol gas since then, going on 7 years now, and there is nothing like the edge that a bladed edger can provide. I live on a corner lot, so I have plenty of street exposure to deal with. I suppose I could just run with the stringer edger once the edge is set, but find the strings get worn down a lot when hitting the pavement. Anyway, I opt for a separate edger.

Used a stick edger on driveways and sidewalks when I was cutting grass professionally. I use my weedeater 95% of the time, and I have a walk-behind edger. As long as you keep the edge clean, you can do it just as well (and fast) with a weedeater

Appreciate everybody’s input. I ended up getting what I linked. Even if I only use the edger once a month, it’ll be worth it to me to clean up the look.

re: Do you guys use an edger or just edge with your weedeater?
It depends on the user. My neighbor only uses a string trimmer, and he puts a nicer edge than I do with my edger. I am rubbish with the string trimmer as an edger.
