Is this a good edger for around curbs and flower beds. If not which one do you recommend. I want a gas powered edge.

Yes, it worked well in the hard clay type soil that's common in Virginia

8 in. 25.4cc Blade Stick Gas Edger is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have always had great experience with ECHO products but this edger was no good out of the box. T... Have always had great experience with ECHO products but this edger was no good out of the box. The quick start guide did not reflect what I experienced. I've owned many 2 cycle machines and this was the worst I've had. In short, it would not start and only after Google searches and trial and error I finally got it to run. After i got it running I used it and it seemed to be ok. The next time I tried to use it about 5 days later I never got it to start again. Maybe I got a bad one but there were others in my Google searches that had similar problems getting it to start as well. I ended up buying a Stihl and it starts on the 1st or 2nd pull each time I've used it. I hope ECHO resolves these issues as I'd like to consider their products (chainsaw in particular) in the future. My experience with returning to Home Depot was perfect and they were very helpful.

I bought this model last year and from day one you have to jimmy with the choke to get it started. I took it back to my local dealer and was told its because EPA changes and there was nothing they can do. It is my first piece of Echo I have owned in 28 years in the green industry. I just sold it for a nice loss because im tired of having to bribe it to run cold. It does work great after you get it running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles easily. Plenty of Power. I live on a large rural lot. I have a little over 400 feet of driveway and sidewalk to edge. It is a delight to use. I will never use a weed eater for edging again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job well Although a little expensive, I am very pleased with the edger so far. It has enough power to edge even dry clay with no problem. I had a big 4 cycle push edger before but the Echo does a much better job and is much easier to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Edger! I started using an ECHO string trimmer while I grew up on our family farm. After my wife and I purchased our house, I bought my own SRM-225 last year and absolutely loved it. This summer, I added the PE-266 to my collection and it's working great! As I was researching the different models, I watched some YouTube videos where PE-225 owners had trouble with the engine being under powered. As I've used this edger, it never feels underpowered. I am very happy I selected the larger engine PE-226 over the PE-225. And yes, this model starts really easy too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Edger This is a professional grade edger. Motor is extremely powerful. You literally have to hold it back at times when digging through a tough spot. Unit is a bit heavy, and takes a little getting used to, but will absolutely handle any job. Ships fully assembled in box reinforced on all corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10x better than the next model down. Bought the PE 225 which couldn't edge through warm butter. This model on the other hand does the job. Easy to operate and gets the job done quickly and efficiently- no bogging or clogging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs and works great. Excellent product. Debated on Stihl since I already have a string trimmer and blower but I'm glad I made the switch. Better quality and warranty. I will most likely by Echo now.
