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
My experience is that grit and stones can fly up from a whippersnipper in ANY direction. The guard probably stops some projectiles but not most. So I wear long trousers , long sleeves and eye protection always. And just stop until passersby pass by. A WS can also throw half a brick several metres, and small projectiles at tremendous speed.
If you take the guard off, it looks as if you don't care, and how people perceive you is more important than any objective fact.
I paid about $110 Australia dollars for mine a couple of years ago.
I’m happy to put a new one on each year at that price as they get the job done a lot quicker.
Always getting complements on my edging.
When installing it just be careful not to have the line too close to the disk as it will wear prematurely.
The best thing since sliced bread.
Forgot to add you need to lube it with graphite powder which they supplied by memory.
Have a look at Andy’s second last photo
You’ll see a rubber grommet on top of the disk.
Just pry it out and give it a squirt every now and again.
