While many users are comfortable edging a curb or sidewalk with a line trimmer, I found the attached edger wheel adds stability. This gives a clean smooth and professional look with minimal effort. I am about six foot and was able to adjust the handle to a higher position with minimal effort.
Unlike a lot of lawn equipment, starting this is typically a breeze -- unless the fuel level is low.
I can see why I see so many professional lawn crews using Echo products. I am pleased enough that I am planning to purchasing an Echo line trimmer.
