Thought it would be a good idea for myself and others to see how some of you keep your accessories (gas cans, trimmers, blowers, tools) on your trailers both open and enclosed......

man i really love to see those enclosed trailers, especially when they are all neat and organized. For the open trailer pics, did u guys do all the work yourselves or did you have a welder do it....i need to get some baskets and racks like that but i can not do any of that work myself, would any welder take on that job you think? Just curious for some suggestions.

We had a welder do most of it, but we do have our own welder. The trimmer racks were previously 2 tier, we just added the 3rd tier for stick edgers last week. I finally gave in and we won't be using push edgers this year.

I bought my trailer in august and built trimmer racks but now I'm in the process of building backpack blower racks... I'm trying to build something myself. Does anybody have any suggestions on cheap way to hang a blower on the wall??? Any help will be appreciated.

This is a pic of my trimmer rack...

I just bungee my hand tools to the wall...

myoder, is it an optical illusion or is the shaft bent on that power broom (between the motor and handgrip area)?

And that's a pretty clever way to keep the hand tools, nice and simple.

Here is a pic of the area I want to put my blowers... Any suggestions???

02-20-2004, 01:52 PM
No it is not an illusion, the shaft is bent... I had it in my pickup on an angle and had a skid of hydroseed mulch loaded and did not realize that the head of the powerbroom got caught on the wheelwell and tweaked it... It still works fine but I need to bend it back.

myoder, for the backpacks what about doing something similar to what you did for the handheld blower there? A hook on a 2x4 frame. You could hook the top of the blower frame. Maybe use bungees to secure it to the wall so it doesn't bounce around, Plus the bungee could hold the tube against the wall too. Just like your hand tools.

If you wanted more support for them then just the hook, you could put a wood shelf right under the backpacks too. A shelf running from one side of the 2x4 frame to the other.

Good luck.

Go-getter stole my thunder! I too was going to suggest something similar to what you have going on w/ the hh blower and hedge trimmer. Nice organized set up!

Thanks for the suggestions, I will try something like that and post some pics of it when I'm done... Thanks again
