Thanks for your updates on this Ando - I have a UMK425 and plan on buying an Edgit for spring - did you say that the model for the Stihl FS130 was the one that fitted straight on to your Honda?

I bought Edgit model #1027 ;) 

this will fit your Honda

you will love it !!

Mine arrived today - I will take some pics of the mount plate with hole centre measurements for Drew and others interested in mounting them to AEG, EGO and the like. 

 

Edit: the package comes with a tiny tube of graphite to keep it lubed. Just searched this up on Bunnings - should be OK to use when the Edgit one runs out I reckon:-

Yes...any graphite will do....I'm using a similar bunnings product now...  I lube mine maybe once a month ....or after it gets wet...its very easy.

Ok to avoid breaking windows either use the throttle as in a quick tap then let go then again etc , etc, don't get the nylon up to full throttle speed. Control it better. You'll get the hang of it after a while,you just need enough speed to cut nothing more & it should work. Other option requires the use of an ally disc instead & keep it above & horizontal around 1-2 " .Works good, tho this near a garden with pebbles & a lot of them are on the edge of the lawn where there is spill over,not sure if it's kids or not.

they do have models for Shindaiwa and other 3 bolt heads

The trick with getting a great edge is just have a bit of trimmer line extending past the Edgit hat...  Too much and it cuts badly and gouges out too much soil ...

When your trimming in the flat position..you can have a bit more  sticking out...

 

It takes a few lawns to get used to it....but persist with it ...Once you get used to it....its a dream

I used the edgit pro for the first time today. During the first lawn I was ready to take it off altogether but remember your wisdom Ando in persisting.
By the 3rd I was starting to enjoy it. It really rips ( nicely) along the edges. There maybe some limitations to it with some edges however only time will tell. It’s a handy tool

haha....I was the same !! 

Its like your working blind because your so used to watching the trimmer line...or it was for me anyway... 

Now i'm used to it...  there are no limitations...  it gets into everything.. I would pay double to get another one if I had to...its that good for me .. I cant imagine being without it now

Keep with it...  and report back in a couple of weeks...  I bet you love it . ;)

This reply is for you Ando!

I’ve now used the edgit pro on all the old regulars and the new.
it’s easy to maintain and it makes edging so much easier and quicker
It has reduced the time it takes on each lawn by at least 12%, today it reduced what normally takes 50 minutes to edge and snip to around 35 minutes.

I'm glad you like it Biggles...  And I agree with you, it saves that much time on jobs...and the edge it makes is outstanding. 

A professional cut is all about the edge and this is the tool do do it with

 Thanks for your feedback 

Cheers ;)
