    Saw the ad in Pro Mag and checked out their site. Seems very reasonable for the tracks and racks. I've been looking for a better system for my rakes and shovels. Has anyone tried these?

    I had called that company about 3 weeks ago and left a message on their answering machine but haven't heard back from them yet..

    No experience with the rake and shovel storage, but

    I do have the trimmer racks, but I would not recommend them. There is too much room for the trimmers to "jump" around in the holder. Also when I do not have the mowers in the trailer they have actually bounced out of the holders and ended up on the floor with broken parts.

    I Have found the holders very useful for backpack blowers(we use redmax EB 7000s)

    I have all my equipment in Trimmer Trap racks, not problems..they don't move at all. I'm looking for a better storage system for hand tools and misc and these looked good.

    I agree. I have had the Jungle Jim's Gear Caddy for four years and I have never had a problem with it. Their new tool rack is great also.
