I just use my straight shaft Echo trimmer to edge also.
I had a Black and Decker Edge Hog, which worked, when it was clogging up the mechanism with muddy soil that I would have to clean out every 15 feet. I thought about getting a gas one (which I may still), but then I would have one more gas powered gizmo to have to maintain. So the trimmer has been working just fine. It won't dig as deep as the older Edge Hog, but still keeps the transition from sidewalk/curb/driveway to the grass perfect.
On another note, Wiess was back out last Friday. Probably for a fall dormancy blend of chemicals. There was a white'ish granular that was put down (I could see it on the sidewalks), so with this soaking rain, I hope it really soaked in.
I saw this deal once before and passed on it since it was about a month before we closed. Here it is again. 21 inch deck brushless self propel mower, brushless carbon fiber expand it trimmer, 2 6aH batteries and 1 4aH battery.
RYOBI redefines power and convenience with the 40V HP Cordless line. The premium HP brushless motor provides more power, longer runtime, and a longer motor life. This mower is ideal for yards up to 3/4
I forgot it was the carbon fiber shaft. I wish I just sucked it up and bought it the first time around. I paid $470 for just the mower and 2 6aH batteries.
The RYOBI 40V VAC ATTACK Cordless Leaf Vacuum features 2-in-1 vacuum and mulching functions to make yard clean up quick and convenient. Featuring a durable metal impeller, shred up to 16-bags of leaves
I ended up breaking the lawnmower back out to just run over the leaves cause I has been lazy and never got out to raking or even using the blower. That is $20 more than just a 5AH battery alone. Granted the kit is normally $200, so its still a good deal normally, but very use specific.
