I currently use the string trimmer both as a normal trimmer and also as an edger. To make the switch, I carry a screwdriver with me around the yard and stop to unscrew the four screws that hold the front-assist handle, rotate it 180 degrees, and then re-tighten the four screws. I'm sure other people have already requested this, but I'd like to add another vote for EGO making a string trimmer in the future with a rotating head so that we can all make the switch between trimming and edging a lot more easily. Plus, even when I do rotate the front-assist handle 180 degrees to use the trimmer for edging, I don't like how it's your fingers that are on the safety switch and the palm of your hand that is operating the variable speed trigger. I find that I don't have as much control using the palm of my hand to depress the variable speed trigger as I do when it's being used as a normal string trimmer and it's my fingers that are depressing the trigger. So, I would LOVE for there to just be a rotating head on the trimmer.
