I was wondering if anyone has ever used these trimmer racks by RACK'EM before - http://www.rackemmfg.com/open-trimmer-rack.html . I need to get some racks for my open trailer. I really like how the trimmers are held in. Seems like they wont bounce around too much. I have to attach these to wood sides on my trailer. Do you think the wood sides would be strong enough to support the trimmers + racks?

I also found these racks by Pack'Em - http://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Cargo-Control/Packem/PK-6.html On both of the racks i like the gray powder coat. Let me know what you guys think or if you have these racks.

i've been re-searching racks myself, and looks like i'm about to buy a greentouch rack.. they are yellow though, but seem like they are damn secure and alot of great features with them. found them online for 200 or so for 3 space.. i was about to get some welded on at the trailer place for that much, but i think the greentouch might be better for my trimmers!

i use the greentouch on my trailer, although they're the ones that hold two trimmers, they still work great. would highly recommend these

I'm planning on picking up the second option you put up because it looks like it would be great for the money. I like that set the most out of options I had because you only have to lock that one side that the trimmer head is on so saves time and is just simple to use. Just my opinion

I have had the rackem trimmer racks on my trailer for several years now and would not buy any other brand. I drive down country roads all day everyday and have never lost a trimmer or noticed them bouncing around (I run dolmar trimmers). As far as will your side boards hold? That is up to you.

I had the pack'em racks on my old trailer. They work, but you handles spin a little in them. I liked them as everything was together on set vs various other racks. Also the locks they give you are garbage just get a four pack of locks.

I use the greentouch extreem racks that lock solid in place and they have been very good to me. Have had the 3 place racks on both an open and enclosed trailer and like them either way, very secure.

I was thinking i could put some 3M camper top tape in were the clamp shuts, so that it is tight when the trimmers are in. (no bouncing around)

The Green Touch Extreme Rack is the best rack money can buy period. The Extreme puts the Trimmer Trap and all others to shame. I owned a Trimmer Trap for years and it may be the second best rack but it's a distant second. The Extreme is also the fastest rack on the market and is super easy to operate. You could rack and un-rack your stuff with one hand if you had to.

I just took a look at the Greentouch trimmer racks. They look like they are built very well. I don't think that it would work on my trailer. It doesn't look like they would bolt to the wood sides.

Take a look at the extensions from Greentouch. I think they may solve your mounting problem. http://www.trailerracks.com/extensions.html

Nothing right now, sold the trailer last year when I figured I would get out, turns out I'm going to start up again.

The handles will rotate some and wear the grip on everything but the green touch racks. The green touch is a bit more expensive but worth every penny. I don't use any of the other green touch stuff, but the racks are the cat's meow and worth every penny.
