Looking for best cheapest trinmer racks.

I'm in need for a three position trimmer rack. I don't want to spend a lot of money no more than $150. I see some jungle Jim's on eBay for $129 shipped. I also have seen others on eBay as low as $65 shipped. Any ones you guys recommend?

Thanks

I bought one on Ebay for 65 shipped. Its a 3 trimmer rack, Homemade ofcourse but its brand new and great. It doesn't lock but I have the luxury to have my trailer in doors. There was just a negative thread on here about the jungle jim racks. Do a search for it.

I have a set from Trinity Iron Images. I bought the rack that mounts to the side rail of an open trailer and goes down to the floor of the trailer. They do have a version that mounts to the top of the rail,(I didnt think that it would be as strong as mounting to inside of the rail). They are lockable with one lock.
$137.00 including shipping. I like them a lot. My next purchase is going to be a blower rack.
Also, they are made in the

'Best' and 'cheapest' generally don't go together. Try for one or the other.

TG2000 off ebay. Been using for years no problems. If your trimmers spin some tape or foam on the latch and you're good.

so you paid $65 plus shipping for a homemade rack? You should have drove 20 mins to the dealer and bought a brand new locking rack for $95 The one luxury you dont have is working in a low income neighborhood and someone stealing your ryobi trimmer when you are cutting the backyard
