    What is the best rack for a BR 600? I've read a lot of good things about the trimmer trap rack.

    What are you guys using that have a BR 600?

    I have the trimmer trap model. You can get them for $100 THEY ARE THE BEST. Dont even bother with any other model. Greentouch has one but you have to actually cut into your brand new $500 blower!It is the bumbest design ever.

    I have a trimmer trap on my trailer and love it. They are a little pricey but they do work well. Ive used a 550 and 600 it.

    We use the Trimmer Trap for the BR600. It works pretty well.

    I use the TrimmerTrap as well. There were issies with the early BR600s breaking the handle in the TrimmerTrap but it turned out that just about anything could break the handles and Stihl made them stronger. It's no longer an issue.

    I have a Jungle Jim's I like it because it has a place to put the blower tube.

    Well, I think I'll go ahead and go with the Trimmer Trap then.

    Where is the best place to buy them? Or has anyone had any luck with Ebay or a different source?

    that's what I use as well only I found an old piece of pvc and attached it to the rail of my trailer. the tube fits in that instead of using the tube holder on the rack.
