    So i bought my new scag v-ride and when i but it in my trailer i had no more space for trimmers and blowers. So i had to put them on the wall. I went to homedepot and bought 2 industrial hooks for the blowers to hang and then for the blowers shoots i used 4 screws and didn't screw them in on the way and i use a bungee to hold them to the wall. for the trimmer i went and bought self brackets with little lips at the bottom of them for the trimmer to fit in. And then a bungee over them to make sure they don't fall out as i drive. Im going to add wood on top of the each white shelving bracket that the trimmers are held up by to have some type of shelving in the trailer for my oil, string, tools, bags and other stuff. tell me what you think and if you have any tips please let me know. I also included some pictures of my new mower.

    FYI, we use the Rubbermaid verticle racks wall mounted in our box truck...they come from Home Depot and they work very well. We originally purchased a trimmer rack but we hated it...it's sitting on the shop floor as I type this.

    Trimmer rack-$125
    Rubbermaid wall mount-$75
