    Anyone tried hog racks trimmer racks? I saw them on e-bay and they peaked my curiosity. They look well made and are less expensive than jungle jim's, trimmer trap, and others. $125.00 + s&h I think. Opinion anyone?

    I have not used them but I like the Jungle Jim ones because the trimmer does not bounce around or spin. They are right around 185 too I believe.

    do they hold the weed eaters in good when you hit alot of bumps do you drop a pin in that top hole to hold that swing bar over

    THEY SEEM TO HOLD WELL YOU STILL HAVE SOME BUMPINESS ON THE TRIMMER HEAD MAINLY oops capslock, the engine end stays put. the hole in the top of the swing bar is how you lock the trimmer rack and the blower rack.

    as for the blower rack i have an eb8510, it has the twin holes at the top of the backpack frame. so when you hang the backpack it leans a little left or right. once you put the blower in the rack it has two ears on the rack to strap it down with a bungie. Its kind of ackward but u got to remember the
    eb8510 is a monster blower its wide and heavy.

    I like both and for the money it was well worth it. I tried to post a pic of the blower rack but the pic had too many pixels, it was too big for this site. If you will pm me your email address i will send it to you
