You could have your one whipper up the top - then a taser, .22, .243, .308 and a 30-06 - for the slow payers or those who ask you to "cut it Lower" or "leave it a week" or " I'll call you when I want it done again" - you need the right tool for the job  :lol:

I imported one a year or 2 ago, works great, I liked it and for more reasons than just running vertical edges but I found loading line was a hassle. I have Atom and wheeled edgers so the Edgit has dust on it now. There are a few posts about them in the lawnclub archives from a year or so ago. It may be okay with those alloy hubs that use pre cut short lengths of thicker line.

 

EDIT: as example Victa TR0001S 3mm (and I have a shiny new one) I just never got around to testing it.

I bought a Shindy T230x off Gumtree thinking to import an Edgit and try it out - got it home to find under the guard it was a model without the 3 bolt mounting flange needed by the Edgit - who knew - faaaark!

cant get even skinny fingers in there to wind the line Drew

 

Older style wing nut hand wound reels like Tuff Heads (I have a box full) would work and are probably perfect for the task but I am Speed Feed addict…

 

EDIT: The Edgit beats Atom for speed, finish and sharp line but the only people that even notice are lawnies, the clients don't have the trained eye we have

 

in the Edgits favour, those kikuyu and couch runners that manage to stay glued to the concrete on cut line with blade edgers and hand steered whipers vaporised with the Edgit.

 

The line feed and load was the main issue

(and it seems fragile, can't just throw it in the trailer it needs a hanger rack)
