    If you have some way to attached to the shed wall, Lowes has a hanging bracket for weedeaters.

    Vertically is fine, as stated go to lowes and for $10 they have a bracket in their garage section that you can mount and hang it on. I've stored mine like this for over 10 years without issue.

    .


    You should store trimmers horizontally. The grease inside of the tube that lubricates the drive cable can run down to the low end, over time, if stored vertically.

    Also, make sure that the gas cap is facing upward when storing. Some brands vent the gas tank through the cap and you could leak fuel mix.
