Thanks, I can't wait to get mine. I made a tool holder across the front and put new signs on the sides. Geez I wish spring would come on! Also finally getting blower holders. Tired of having them sliding around the floor of the trailer. Actually left one sitting on the fender one day, fell off, then ran over it. But it's a Redmax, like a Timex, kept on keeping on!

Not really, the only thing I did different was drill and tap my holes. It looked like it was to be mounted on a angle iron type rail and mine is tube rail. Thats pretty much all I did and it was really just to the trailer not their parts.

I do remember drilling out their holes on the brackets a little bigger because their brackets are thick and it was hard getting a marker through the holes to mark where I had to drill and tap my holes. By oversizing their holes a little, it gave me a little wiggle room because if you are not on the money when you drill, you will have a hard time getting your bolts to screw in.

You will love that trimmer rack!

I don't see it a whole lot, but was wondering if anybody has any experience with them?

How does it hold up with it being open and closed all day?

If you do have one, feel free to post it on here.

Thanks guys!
I forgot to say that you should try to install it as low as you can to hep with the wind drag.

I also found that because I installed it like a fort, it made my gate pretty heavy so I got a gate assist to help with lifting.

You may have noticed in all the pix I plastered on your thread LOL, sorry about that...

My next prodject for the trailer will be comming up with something to hold my grass catcher that I will be getting in a few weeks. No room on the trailer for it to ride on the mower so I need to come with some way to hang it, lock it.
