I've read how it's best to use the dedicated EGO edger instead of one of the string trimmers, but when I got the Powerhead edger, I really had a hard time using it, and would just rather just use a string trimmer to do both the trimming and edging.  I've noticed some other trimmer models rotate the head to do both, like the Black & Decker LST136W, but I'd really like to stay in the EGO system since I already have a mower and a blower.  If I'm going to edge with an EGO trimmer, which model would do the best with edging?  I'd like to go with the Powerload system, but it looks bulkier and heavier than the others?  Any ideas?

Hi DK! Keep in mind that while you can use our string trimmers to trim your edges quite neatly and efficiently, it may not provide the same finishing results as with a traditional dedicated edger. Here is a similar thread on this topic that might be of help: https://community.egopowerplus.com/ego/topics/edging
