    THE SURFACE EDGER, that's right "EDGER"

    BRAND NEW TOOL ON THE MARKET CALLED "THE SURFACE EDGER"
    ELIMINATES MUDDY MESSES AND FLOODING WHEN CLEANING HARD SCAPE

    When cleaning driveways and sidewalks a surface cleaner is used.
    When cleaning up the dirty edges the surface cleaner left behind a spray wand is used and that's when the hassle starts with mud flying and sometimes flooding. This is the slow tedious sloppy part of pressure washing.

    THE SURFACE EDGER CLEANS A STRIP THREE AND A HALF INCHES WIDE FROM THE EDGE OF THE SIDEWALK INWARDS. VIRTUALLY NO MUDDY MESS AND NO FLOODING.

    THIS TOOL WILL CLEAN AS FAST AS YOU CAN WALK AND LEAVE A PERFECT JOB BEHIND YOU.

    ON A LARGE UPSCALE PROPERTY IT TAKES ME 10-15 MINUTES TO EDGE ALL OF THE HARD SCAPE "MAX"

    E-MAIL ME AND I WILL E-MAIL YOU A BROCHURE WITH PICTURES AND INFO. VIDEO WILL BE COMING SOON.

    A dual lance wand works just fine. Lowers the high pressure impact associated with blasting debris.

    I have never heard of Nothstar. Northstar is the Northern tool brand I believe, which is junk.

    Cool idea.......but Hydrotek's HydroTwister has had that attachment on it for years.

    Do you have a website? A pic of the product? A video showing it in use? Would love more info.

    I think I saw a picture of it on craigslist. It looks like a wheel with a shield you put on the end of your wand. Kinda like a stick edger.

    That does not look like a bad idea at all.

    There have been many jobs where that would have come in handy.

    Great idea around flower beds and mulch.

    Hmm...If its less than $40, I'll buy one. I'll even post a review. I wash at least 1 or 2 drives/walks every day and there are times this would come in handy. I currently use a turbo for trimming (cut the psi way back) and it works quite well. The biggest issue I see with this new product is landscaping that is not trimmed. (Ever trimmed a walk for the first time?) Anything to keep the much from flying is worth a look.

    We use something real similar to wash parking lot stripes before re-striping them. The one I use is actually made to wash decks.

    When you use the SC long enough youll know where the tip sprays. + I dont like having more stuff on the rig than what I need to do the jobs Im doing. Dual lance= multi use,
    Surface edger= edges only+ more work. but its good thinking

    Yes, the surface edger saves you from those aggrivating messes.
    Also any hard scape that has been sodded leaving the grass turf higher than the sidewalk.
    Thanks much,
    Bob Hogan

    Are you saying I own Northern Tool?
    I am Northstar Specialties, not Northstar.
    Hope this clears things up.

    I was just trying to figure out who you were/are. In your first post the name of your business is Nothstar Specialties, now it is Northstar Specialties. Just curoius. I hope you sell a bunch of them to someone.

    Thi8s looks good. Could you make it so it would quick connect to the end of the wand instead of a whole wand? That might make it quicker to change over.
