Trimmer Racks

Who makes the best trimmer rack. Xtreme, trimmer trap, or jungle jim? What do you guys prefer and why?

I got two single trimmer racks from jungle Jim. One on each side of the trailer. Works for me. Simple and fast. Still working perfect after 5 years.

I like the looks of green touch or xtreme, but I dont like the idea of my trimmers possibly breaking the shaft, from the extra engine weight haning out there. I have all stihl handhelds, so I dont know if one rack works better for them over the others.

I've been using the green touch for 4 yearspersonally, and I got them because the company iI used to work for had them for years, i I have never had one break a shaft or seen one do that, and we have horribly bumpy roads up here too. Just mount them correctly and you sshouldn't have a problem. Never had a stihl though, redmax,echo, and huskies have all been fine

I think im either gonna buy a trimmer trap or one of jungle jim's racks. Will these be able to be mounted on a trailer with 30" solid sides, so that both trimmers are about sides??
