Hi all.

I have recently purchased the ego mower, blower, hedge trimmer, and 15 inch string trimmer. Love them all however previously I would edge with my echo gas string trimmer with a disc attachment. It did a great job and was super fast and easy.

Last week the echo seized up and I tried to edge with the ego trimmer. Unfortunately I must not be steady/coordinated enough and pretty much made a mess of everything.

I'm happy with the ego trimmer for regular trimming but I need some other way to edge. I have not seen any type of "guide" available to attach to the ego.

Should I just buy a dedicated gas edger? Or maybe buy a competing battery trimmer that has an edging attachment? Is there any company that makes a dedicated battery edger? ( I have not seen one).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I like a dedicated blade edger and hope that Ego will make one at some point as I really like my mower, trimmer, and blower. I ended up purchasing a Ryobi 24 volt blade edger and it does a nice job.

I just bought the 15" trimmer myself but I cannot use that thing to edge at all.  It feels almost like it's too hard to control.  Even when I use it in the traditional trimmer mode it seems to move around quite a bit.  Maybe it's because of all the power it has but it doesn't feel all that good in the hands.  My old Ryobi..while a lot less powerful is very easy to control.

So honestly, I'm having to consider whether to keep the trimmer and have to buy another piece of equipment to edge with or just got a trimmer with a built in wheel for edging by the likes of Ryobi and Worx. 

I own the mower and the blower.  I love both of them but I must admit..this trimmer is a bit of a disappointment overall for me.

That is oddly expensive for a wheel and clamp.  That said, I would love to see EGO make an official attachment like that available for purchase!
