    Hi guy's,
    Finally got my new trailer, new truck (UGH!) to pull it, and my equipment mounted. Hope you like it.

    Here's my stuff mounted. Total cost for mounting about $30. These clamps hold very tight without any movement and loosen by pushing the orange handle......Enjoy.....

    Here's a pic from the rear......two 48's, one 54 with attached velky, one big push leaf blower.... all are held by wheel chocks for instant removal. As you can see, the front mower can come off from the custom side ramp, without taking off the other machines............
    Trailer is 7'X18'.... rear ramp and custom side ramp.......

    Very nice set up. I wish I had an enclosed trailer like that.

    Thanks a lot. The key was cut 3/4" off of one clamp end. This let the 2" clamp close down to a 3/4" diameter, which in turn will "now" hold all of the smaller diameter tools. Home depot has the clamps for under $3 each.

    Sweet set-up, I am going to be getting an enclosed next year. Would you mind sharing how much$$$? Great idea for the trimmer and tool holders.

    The total was $4,470 + tax, including break away kit, Ziebart under coating, 3/8" plywood sides, 3/4" pressure treated bottom, tandem wheels, four wheel electric brakes, two dome lights, one vent, stone guard, and of course rear ramp and custom 60” side ramp door.
