TOOLS / SUPPLIES
Alpha Viana Intros Sensor-Equipped Hand Edger
Product: Sensor-equipped hand edger
Top Line: Many hand edgers require a manual switch to turn it on and off. This step is often cumbersome, as the switch is on the side or the back of the edger.
Close Up: Alpha Viana’s new hand edger has a sensor that starts the edger whenever you get close. This allows the operator to leave the edger on all the time and only have it spin whenever they need it, without having to flip a switch.
