What is the Best Style of Lawn Edger?

You can find a lawn edger in many different styles. The main differences between them is how they are all powered and operated. The electric models tend to be lightweight and easy to operate. The gas models can be heavier but are still very effective. The manually powered models require a bit of effort and strength to be effective. Lastly, the rechargeable models are just as effective as the electric models with the main difference being that they have a rechargeable battery.

What is the Best Gas Engine for a Lawn Edger?
The gas engine that is used in the lawn edger will factor into how good of a tool it will really be. You should look for a lawn edger that has a 4-cycle engine.

You may want to try to avoid the 2-cycle engine as it requires gas and oil to be mixed (at a specific ratio) and it operates at a much lower horsepower.

What is the Best Blade Size for a Lawn Edger?
The blade size of a lawn edger will be a very important factor in how good a specific model will be. You will want to look for a lawn edger that has an ideal blade size. The most common blade sizes for a lawn edger would range from 7 to 10 inches. The depth can be modified with most of these models to anywhere between 1 and 4 inches.

Why Choose a Manually Operated Lawn Edger?
Using an electric or gas-powered lawn edger can get the job done for you. However, the manually operated lawn edger may be more effective for you. This will vary by person. With the manually operated model you will be required to use the lawn edger as if it was in a shovel while following the path.
