For those of you who have multiple mowers - I noticed that a few of you have two or more mowers on one side of the trailer. Does the weight distribution matter? Can you tell when driving?

Yeah, I do, and never gave it a thought. Drives just fine.......
The only thing a realize is more power when I leave a mower in the garage.

hey quality landscaping, do you have a detailed picture near where the head of the trimmer would go? I see how you secured the lower part of the shaft, what about the upper? Thanks steve

Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not! :D

If not, Ferris 32" Hydro on the left and Toro Proline 21" on the right.

If your handy enough, you can make mostly anything yourself for your equipment(trimmer holder, gas cans, etc.)

10-28-2003, 11:18 PM
Here's the trailer.

And the rig.

10-28-2003, 11:25 PM
Homemade trimmer racks.

10-28-2003, 11:32 PM
And homemade spicerack. Handmowers are strapped down on top (when they are carried). Next year, this will be turned around the other way, (facing the front of trailer), and a lockable swing down door supported by cables will be on the front.

Runner - what's the name of your company? I've seen your rig once around here and it really caught my eye. The basket and trimmer racks are unique.

My setup isnt really all that nice. I have an 18 ft trailer and a 72inch Dixie Chopper. I have a friend in the mowing business who has a 2003 F250. He pulls a 24 ft gooseneck trailer with 3 grasshoppers on it. He has 1 mid mount and the other two are front mounts. I will get a picture and post it on here.

Did you have the Grand Mall as an account in grand blanc?

10-30-2003, 03:46 PM

That bungee through the handle is a good idea, had never thought of that. I lost a weedeater off my trimmer rack, that would've probably kept it from smashing onto the ground.

10-30-2003, 05:02 PM
Here's what I'm pulling. A new trailer is somthing thats on the top of my list. ( this thing is PITA, I want Hunters trailer)

My setup

10-30-2003, 06:39 PM
No, that wasn't me. I THOUGHT Grandscapes did that, maybe I'm wrong.
SCFF, Actually, the bungees through the handles are mainly on there to keep the equipment from rolling and flipping around like it does on most other racks. This wqay, the equipment stays right upright. I have a bungee on each end of the racks that run up and down to some "D" rings I welded on the sides toward the insides. This keeps everything nice and snug without any rattle or movement. Notice on the hooks, I used a couple of pieces of old garden hose for cushion to protect the trimmers. Icintelly, what these racks are made out of, are a couple of old awning supports - the kind that have those scroll like "S" in them. It's just smaller square tubing that is held to the floor of the trailer with upsidedown "T" shaped pods (flat stock) that are bolted dowm. The square tubing is also bolted against the side of the trailer through the upper angle iron part of the frame. The hooks on the racks are made out of the flat stock that formed the "S" braces on the awning scrolls. Front ones are bent into a wider J to hold the larger part of the trimmer near the engine, and the rear hooks are bent into smaller J's to hold the shaft further down toward the heads. The other side is reciprocated, so all the trimmer are facing with the engines toward the front of the trailer.
