    ok, I have bought a couple 'economy' trimmer racks in the past, and have never been completely satisfied. I am looking for one that is fast to use and will hold trimmers nice and secure and upright. I'm willing to spend $$$ to get something decent, so cost isn't an issue.

    Go ahead and get the pro4 model, I did. It only takes one hand to operate and one lock to lock the whole thing up. The longer you wait, the more expensive they'll get. Do it now.

    How do the prices of the Trimmer Trap products compare to Green Touch?

    Here's the most recent price list for TrimmerTrap products and installation charges (as if!) at Teshandsons where I'm getting a trailer made.
    I think I gave $229 for my pro4 about 3 years ago.
    It doesn't really matter that much though because if it's loaded, it'll have about $1200 worth of equipment on it. Get the best, otherwise get the cheapest. You can't do both.
    By the way, about 2 weeks ago I saw a bunch of bikers heading to the black bike week at Myrtle Beach. It was the funniest thing to see $30k worth of bikes on a $200 trailer. There was a long line of stuff like that.
    Believe me, if your underwear bothers you in the morning, it will bother you ALL DAY LONG!
    It's the same with your work tools, trailer etc...

    Lesco makes some nice ones, and are about the most popular around here.

    If you want the best you need to get you a set of Jungle Jims Racks, you can purchase a good set for around $250.00 plus tax and shipping, this includes a trimmer racks, hold three trimmers, a back pack rack that hold two blowers and a water cooler rack which I think is a a good price for all you get. I highly recommend Jungle Jims Product. :cool2:
