Looking for a used edger saw

I'm finding edging on my LT40 is pretty inefficient. Looking for a small reasonably priced used edger. For farm use, clearing some trees to make more pasture.

Generally you need three people for an edger . Its also not cheap and you can find other ways to organize your edgings.
We have a lot of good boys and girls in harms way
lets all support them and their familys.

I have a woodmizer double bladed edger. I typically run by myself, and wouldn't be without it. It's easy to run with one person, but you have to plan for it. It's faster if you stack the flitches on a forklift until you are ready to edge, then you drive the flitches to the edger and run them through. It's simple to start them and walk around to catch them. It's faster to make a couple cants and slice off boards, but for oddball flitches, I wouldn't be without my edger. It's far easier than manhandling the boards to trim both sides.

This always cracks me up, there's a guy on the portable sawmill facebook page looking to sell his 2003 norwood edger.  It's funny cause alot of times on craigslist you see in the wanted section something and there's one for sale in the for sale section lol.  Gotta look around, try sawmill trader, sawmill exchange, the forum has a for sale section, am lumber/pallet sometimes has em. 
Boy, back in my day..
