Before I buy, any complaints or problems? It seems that most people like the Xtreme the most. It's a little pricey compared to others.

I have one (3 set) and love it. No issues at all and keeps your trimmers/edgers stable (will not flip/spin). Worth the price imho.

Wow, thanks Orange, thats some awesome advice. If you would have read my original post you may have gotten that I have searched on here for any info saying "most people like the Xtreme" but a lot of the posts that I found were a little older. Just looking for some up to date info. Don't reply to my threads unless you have useful info.

I didn't see where you said you searched the forum for the subject. Why do you need a more up to date post from others when they already posted it before? I'll reply to whatever posts I want thank you very much.

I have 2 sets 1 two place and 1 three place i love them both. Mounted them the same distance apart so it dosnt matter what trailer the trimmer goes on. Also replaced the locks with new master locks keyed the same as all of my other pad locks 1 key dose it all.

We have em, I like em. I want to get the engine braces though. I don't like the heads bobbling.

I didn't know they had engine braces? Are they listed on the Xtreme website?

Nope, they've moved them, (under trimmer racks) and I THINK raised the price.

Great info. I've always wanted to have 1 key, how did you go about doing that? Also, the padlocks on the rack are enclosed, how did you change them out?

There is a bolt on the backside you unscrew and the lock comes out, it shows how to do it in the instructions if you have them.

But the lock would have to be unlocked correct? It's not THAT easy right?

to be honest I'm not sure because my lock seems to have an issue aside from not having a key, it wont lock. but your right, it probably does need to be unlocked in order for you to remove the whole locking assembly from the rack.
