Customer reviews for 7.75 in. 28.1 cc Bed Redefiner Gas Stick Edger

7.75 in. 28.1 cc Bed Redefiner Gas Stick Edger

The BRD-280 Bed Re-definer is ECHO's most revolutionary product to date. Bed edges erode over time and need to be redefined. The old method was to use a shovel but it's tough, time-consuming work. The BRD-280 cuts a crisp, beveled groove leaving a professional, manicured look. It features ECHO's performance class 28.1 cc Power Boost Vortex engine and a six-finger cutting claw manufactured from high-grade steel with specially designed carbide tips on each cutter for improved durability and performance.

Although I have to agree with another review that it may not work real well for digging a new bed, I really love it. After all it is called a re-definer. If you use it to go over existing beds in the spring and fall it works great. It costs only a fraction of what an actual bed shaper costs and is far more convenient to use. I was waiting for some time for someone to come up with something like this. It has saved me lots of time and money in my landscape business. I would recommend this to anyone with lots of beds, either homeowners or landscapers.

No, I do not recommend this product.
The Echo 7.75 In Redefiner is a solid piece of equipment. Starts up quickly and has a strong motor. The only problem is the housing which hold the blade fills up with dirt quickly and jams the blades from turning. If you have an existing edge along the flower bed it does a great job to enhance the look. However if you are looking to create the edge from scratch, well my friend you may want to grab that old shovel and use it like I had to do on several projects. If you have watched the video on Echo's website, like I did, you will not have as easy of a time creating the edge from scratch. Hope this helps.

It really does give a professional looking edge between the lawn and mulch bed. I have a lot of edging around my house and along my back yard. I was able to complete all of it in a couple of hours. Also I found going over everything twice gave the best results.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Durable

This product is designed to "REDEFINE" edges and specifically not to cut new ones. Mine performs exactly as promised and is of great quality. I wouldn't expect it to work in cutting new beds because it specifically states it's not designed for that.

Takes a bit of getting use to but is great when done at pace environment dictates. Makes the shovel almost useless.
