    Get a green touch by far the best. The customer service is top notch. I had a problem with ups and customs and they took care of everything 100%. I wouldn't waste your time or money on anything else. It locks also and the design is the best by far.

    I've used pack em for years trick is to open the one your going to use slide the trimmer toward the engine side, where the engine isn't underneath the one on top and it comes right out. I can take the bottom edger out without modification

    The Extreme puts all others to shame. I had the Trimmertraps before and it's very antiquated compared to the Extreme. The Extreme is the fastest most efficient rack you can buy period.

    I am me here and to this site but I use Extreme Racks for my trimmers and I don't want any other kind. I had mine on an open trailer and I saved all of the hardware that came with them. I recently bought an enclosed trailer and I took them off and mounted them in the enclosed trailer. They work great

    +1 for the Extreme racks. Very easy to use and heavy duty.

    Ive had greentouch (I think this is the same thing as the "extreme") triple rack for about 5 years, love it, well worth the $. Takes literally 3 seconds to put a trimmer on and the same to take off. Cheapest place I found was Northern Tool.

    I just got the extreme trimmer 4 rack, tool rack and blower rack from green touch for open trailer. I like the the tool rack and blower rack a lot. The extreme trimmer rack is pretty good, but it does seem to move a little. Hopefully all goes well. Customer service was excellent.

    Has anybody tried the Green Touch Extreme racks now that they supposedly fixed the mounting issues? I'm interested in getting a 2-position trimmer rack for my trailer and I like the way their model looks, but I have heard of some issues with them.

    Which blower do you use with the blower rack? Is it easy to remove and replace the blower?

    I've been using the Green Touch Extreme racks for three years now on an open trailer that's left out in all weather. We love them! However, I wouldn't recommend them for a single axle trailer, if it bounces to hard the engine can snap off. They do make an accessory brace you can add on to prevent this.
