    Just put on a Gridion rack on my trailer today. My daddy use to tell me you get what you pay for. Man was he right! Had all winter to research racks and now I now I have the best one for the money thats out there bar none. This thing is bad to the bone!! It is the only ajustable rack that I could find. Man the flexibility of this rack is just to cool. Check out Novaecorp.com for more info!! :D :cool:

    I have one for my backpack blower. I thought it was a little pricy but seems to work very well so far.

    I have had the Gridiron racks in my enclosed trailer for 2 full seasons goning onto this being the 3rd... I researched and looked at every brand available... And None of them even came close to the Gridiron.... Far superior, in design , flexability, strength, and overall ease of use.... I would buy their stuff site unseen at this point...... The blower racks are great too.. have a few of them as well.... Easy to use.... Make sure you use lock washers when mounting these or any racks, they tend to vibrate loose if you dont' ...........

    I just got the TT2 from Trimmer Trap, and love it. The trimmers don't move around at all, and it loads super fast - just pull up on one lever, lift out the trimmer and you're off!

    Fivestar,
    Just a little advice when installing your rack.
    Put red loc-tite in every bolt.If you don't you will regret it!They will loosen up by the end of the second day of use.As far as the water jug holder goes.Let's just say you better fasten it w/something more that the 2 bungies they give you.
    Take it from someone who is 1 cooler shy after the first 3 days of use.It may sound like I am bashing them but I'm not.I would of thought they would of had some of these helpful hints w/ the directions.
    Considering the rack is one of the most expensive out there.

    I have 2 BP blower holders from Gridiron and I really love them. I mounted them to treated 2x4's because of the design of my trailer but I have had no problems. If loosening nuts is an issue you could double nut also along with the locktite.

    To all of you that seem to be bragging about how easy it is to use "Trimmer Traps", inferring that they may be better than the Grid Iron system let me ask you a question. Can you hold a stick edger in one hand, and a trimmer in the other hand, and load and lock them into a trimmer trap? I didn't think so. I can do this ( and do it every moring when loading) with my Grid Iron system. It is absolutely the BEST system ever made, period!!!
