I have tried many and no one company has the best rack for every purpose. one is best trimmer rack, one best blower, one best sprayer, one for gas cans.

See what fits your trailer best, evaluate separately

I've got greentouch trimmer and blower racks and I like them both. I just got the blower rack but the 3 place trimmer rack is excellent. I would definitely recommend it.

how do the ones from lowes hold up? do the shafts bounce around or loose so they can damage the trimmers?

I didn't have them on an open trailer for a long period of time. maybe a year or 2. but in that time they did great. never had a problem with bouncing or getting loose.

currently they are in my enclosed trailer.

when I did have them on the open trailer I had wood inserts to keep the trimmers upright. but in the enclosed they of course stay upright against the wall.

i got the greentouch extreme 3 space rack, with engine supports. they seem OK so far, i love how easy it is to get my trimmers in and out of the rack. they don't roll or bang around and they lock with one lock,and very secure. I don't care for the way they mount to the side of the open trailer.. there has been a few stories of the rack snapping off at the base from a weak weld. and without engine supports i've heard of trimmers snapping from moving. if i could go back and do it again.

i have the greentouch extreme blower rack, and that one was worth it to me, very secure, very easy to get blower on and off.
