When we first started in business money was tight like most people but we wanted to act and look as professional as possible. We bought a set of trimmer racks that looked as if they would be fine. We bolted it to the trailer and off we went, right over some of our favorite city streets hitting, I swear, every huge pot hole alone the route. About a block away from our first stop after going through the mine field to get there we trun the coner and I noticed one of our trimmers came flying out almost smacking a group of kids on the side of the road. After we stopped we noticed the rack locking device had broken right off. After further looking into we noticed all of the locking devices were long gone and the only thing holding these trimmers was the bungy strap. We took it back, they would not warranty it, "used commercially" I couldnt beleive it. We never went back to that store ever again. Quality pays off in the end.
