Electric/Petrol lawn edger/trencher

Looking to purchase a powered lawn edger/trencher but cannot find much choice, there does seem alot more choice on USA sites.

    The Mantis tiller has all manner of attachments available.  I use the lawn edger and it works well for me.  It saves a lot of time and gives a cleaner cut than using a half moon edging tool.

  • Lawn edgers dont seem to have the following they have in other countries, particularly the US.

    @KT53's suggestion of a mantis is great. The Mantis is a brilliant, incredibly versatile little machine.

    Similar results can be achieved with a half moon edger and for speed, maintained by verticle strimming (if you already have a strimmer... the lighter, the better), and isn't easy at first. But practice makes perfect! image

    I got the edger when we had the new lawn laid.  I had over 200 feet of edging to do and clearly that was much quicker and easier with the powered tool.
