Ok So I am thinking of spending some HOA money on a darn edger Just to make my life easier. I am looking at two types. The hand held 2 stroke. If I go this route I am only looking at an Echo. As all the HOA 2 stroke lawn and garden equipment is Echo. ECHO PE-230 Powerful Curved Shaft Lawn Edger - ECHO USA Or A Walk behind one. This one I would prefer to stay with a Craftsman because that is what the mower is. Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more I am trying to keep the equipment close to the same for parts and maintenance. What do you guys think Hand held or walk behind. I had a hand held Troy bilt one and the curve on the shaft and the weight of the boat anchor they call a motor SUCKS and would cause me to lay on the floor for 3 days with a tore up back. The Echo is not like that the shaft is straight and the are much lighter.
