Things look great how have they held up over time? Are those 1x4 on the walls that all of your brackets are screwed to .

They held up great! One got hit with the tractor and needed fixed, but besides that, they held up well. They're screwed to 3/8 inch plywood with a wood "clip" at the top to go over the metal channel to hold the weight, then a few screws to hold it to the wall.
Here's some more photos of the trimmer rack:

Well, I got new tires on my truck, and got to put them to the test today... Went to pick-up a round pen for one of my younger brothers that does horse training , and the gps sent me down some "roads", more like little unmaintained dirt/mud lanes. Managed not to get stuck, but muddied up my truck and trailer, which I just washed yesterday...
So I had to wash it again. I rent two parking spaces from a landscape material company about two miles from home, It used to be a trucking company, so they have lots of parking spaces. They also have a 18 wheeler wash bay for rent, which is very handy.

So please tell us more about the tractor project...

It looks like it came out great! Looks like you gave her a full makeover huh?

Everything right down to new paint?

I have been going back and forth between a mini skid and a compact tractor....

Like you said, the CT's are super handy doing mulch or other small landscape projects and are easy on the turf...

My tractor project started at a garden center I used to work part-time at on Saturdays. I saw it all rusty sitting behind a barn, so I asked my boss and he said that it was sitting there for 5 to 8 years! He said if I wanted a project, I could have it! So that's how I got it!

So we went over all the electrical system, replacing anything questionable.
New paint, tires, hood, steering wheel, seat, stickers, and tail lights. Had to repair and weld the body panels and muffler.

Even after sitting for all that time, it started first try!

Spent under $2,000 on the tractor

Then I added the front end loader. Got it off of ebay for around $3,000. Payed
too much for the size it is, but spring was starting and I had to get something!

Added a category 0 three point, Got a rake, and fabed up plywood a weight box with 200 lbs of sand.

And I found ROPS for it. It was around $500. Have yet to use it, except for hanging lights and catching branches, and I don't plan on ever using it!

Then this winter I went over the engine. New rings,seals, and cleaned it all out. Also added LED spot lights I got of Ebay. Very bright! I was using a battery strobe, but with working along roads and plowing a few friends houses, I wired in a mini LED strobe lightbar. Also added a PTO kit. Hope to get a snow blower and rototiller for it soon. Then I found a hydraulic kit that switches from one function to another at the flip of a switch. So I redid the hydraulics. Also welded up a custom skidloader-like quick attatch on the loader arms to switch between the bucket and the plow. The plow was off a John Deere F series front deck mower.

I think that covers all I did to it. I could have gone a gotten a used kubota for
what I invested it it, but now I know it inside and out, so If there is ever a problem, I can have it fixed in no time!

I had wanted a project to learn new skills, and I learned a ton!
