I'm think about getting one of these Edgit heads...  Seems like a great Idea... 

  Found this old Zombie thread...

I cant believe they dont make it to suit Honda !  #### !

Is anyone using one of the Edgits?

Think Grae bought one but hasn't used it a lot - I was dead keen for one and even bought a Shindaiwa T230 off Gumtree so I could fit it - got it home to find they'd changed the head design and mine wouldn't take the Edgit - still think they're a great idea for fast accurate edging but the limited fitting range is a pain

Mine arrived with a multi-fit top plate.

 

Will fit most gearboxes with a 2 or 3 screw mounting flange that the metal brush cutter guard bolts to.

I think the only difference between the part numbers is they mark the correct hole set with dots of paint.

 

It fitted my Honda powered Victa Pro series brush cutter OK

NOTE:

I remembered seeing this version, you can get them for shaft mounted guard brackets

I was originally shopping for Shindi fit when I ordered mine.

 

Mounts to guard on shaft bracket (video example is Stihl), the Edgit has a larger central hole in it and comes supplied with adaptor plate.

 

with a bit of nous

a router bench or a wire brush in a drill or a fret/coping saw to open out the big hole in the mounting plate

and a piece of 6~8mm aluminium sheet cut in a similar fashion to the bracket in the video with a few holes in the right spot the Edgit Pro will fit anything (maybe a few washers to set alignment).

 

I might bodgy hack mine to fit a Shindi T260x thats growing cobwebs

it looks like this mounting method allows better access to the speed feed for reloading (SF400 on a 260)

 

EDIT:

as an aside the lubricant that came supplied in the tube was powdered graphite and there is a removable bung in the top plate for reloading graphite powder as required.

 

The Edgit assembly appears to be

1. rigid top mounting/alignment plate

2. soft polymer gasket/seal

3. Vacuum formed Edgit disc

4. soft polymer gasket/seal

5. rigid lower stepped main plate

notes

2. & 4. are probably just a single 'U' shaped seal

1. & 5. have been screwed together BUT have then been chemically sealed together. This helps seal the dust out and the graphite in but also serves to make it a non repairable single unit.

I just bought an edgit to suit my Stihl 130r Kombi , but comparing it to my Honda it looks very similar. I think I can make it work..

I'll let you know what happens ;)
