Specifications

  • Available Thrust and Voltage Options
    • The Edge is available in 45 lbs, 55 lbs, and 70 lbs of thrust. The 45 lb and 55 lb thrust motors are 12 volts. The 70 lb thrust Edge is a 24 volt motor. We do not offer a 36 volt Edge.
  • Available Shaft Lengths
    • The Edge is available in shaft lengths of 36", 45", and 52". The shaft on the Edge cannot be lengthened as it would be cost prohibitive. The shaft can be shortened. If the shaft is shortened at an Authorized Service Center, it will not void your warranty. If the shaft is shortened outside of an Authorized Service Center, the warranty will be voided.
