The Sterling YieldBoss Hybrid Edger System is a revolutionary new approach to edging that combines the benefits of optimized saw placement with the simplicity of a manual edger system. An affordable system in a whole new class of edgers created by McDonough, a Sterling YieldBoss Hybrid Edger fits in the space between our line of McDonough fully optimized edgers that return the highest yields, and manual edgers that leave everything up to your operator.
“McDonough has always been customer focused, zeroing in on the needs of the industry and delivering products that help our customers meet their goals. As the industry leader in edger systems, we wanted to deliver to market an affordable and high-performing system that combines our expertise in optimized solutions with the simplicity of a manual edger system – and the Sterling YieldBoss edger system delivers on both counts”.
– Matt Tietz, VP & Owner at McDonough Manufacturing
