Playing Santa here...

DH wants an edger. Everyone in our neighborhood immaculately edges their lawn.

Our yard is NOT big and we won't be edging the back yard, which is quite woodsy for a suburb... but we want to have that look, too, in the front - our neighbors are meticulous about their lawns, so we need a machine that will do the job. DH wants a gas one.

Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your assistance in finding the right tool! Here is the area we need to edge.

I have a Craftsman edger powered by a gasoline motor which works very well.

Just don't buy the manual kind. Too much effort for anyone with medical problems. A lot of exertion.

We don't use an edger as there's too much property. But, my Dad uses his weed eater or weed wacker and changes the plastic cord to steel blades. The head on his pivots so it's not a bad angle for him. That way he gets double use.

I vote for the mantis tiller with edger. I don't have the edger with mine but the tiller is a 1982 mod and works just awesome. Ernie

I've had the Ryobi Power Trimmer plus for about 10 years, and love it.

It's a weed eater that has interchangeable heads that lets you switch from weedeater to edger, to pruner, to hedge trimmer, and on and on and on.

You buy the heads seperately and they can range from 50 to 120, but it's still cheaper than buying a stand alone of each.

Right now I have the edger, weed eater, chainsaw, and cultivator. All work great.

The mantis tiller an excellent choice. It may cost a little more, but it is versatile - can be used for many things; and does a very good job. The feedback on that product is phenomenal. They could put John Travolta back to chasing rabbits out of his garden.
