Well I've went from a 12x6 single mower to a 6.5 X16 double mower set up. the 12 ft trailer had plenty of room for extra equipment. With two mowers on the 16' trailer I need some accessories for the gas cans, and hand blower, etc. Any one have pictures of their set up to give me ideas. Where is a good parts catalog for trailer accessories? I'm not really seeing what I want in the J-Thomas catalog. I'm thinking a tongue box will help a lot but I could still use some more room. Maybe an extra toolbox in the bed of the truck. Pictures and ideas anyone. Much appreciated.

Trailerracks.com has lots of great stuff. Their new trimmer racks are great. For pics look in the pictures forum a few threads down for a post by me.

Cheers

You could also try trimmer trap, jungle jims. What about a cage for the front of the trailer. I saw one in the TSC catalog for $122.xx

I like that one Rizzo, if you were closer, I'd ask you to make me one. Where did you find that tool box?

Got lucky at a junk auction they have every wednesday near me. Picked it up for $10.

One of the best things I ever did to my old open trailer was fabbed. a locking equipment storage box. It ended up only costing me 225.00 in material and 100bucks for a guy to weld it together.
