Show off your own inventions here:

Post the pictures of that equipment that you made yourself because you can't find what you want or just can't justify the cost of, so you just made you own.

Show off your creative ability!

Here's what I've made for a trimmer rack. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=307743

Sure it broke when I ran it into a telephone pole but it only took about 5 min. to make another one.

i made the grass/leaf bag based on the bag size(everybody sells em).....the bags hold up well....i made it a little on the heavy side so that the wind won't blow it over(fall time)....i fill it 1/3 then pull out the insert, it holds it's own at that point....made 2 of em.

Didn't even think about the wind. Good for you man.

i made something very similar using rifle holders for an atv, they broke from bouncing, how are yours holding up?

It holds up pretty good... Unless you hit a telephone pole

The great thing is that it only takes about 10 min to make another one and a little while for the glue to dry. I'm sort of glad it breaks easy, I'd much rather replace the trimmer rack than a hydro pump or something.

Nice, kinda heavy though? Would some type of plastic material be better? (Thinner and lighter) Not taking away from that, I like it a lot.
