    I started a thread in the pictures section but didn't get any responses. So I'll put one here.

    We started carrying our power pruners in our trimmer racks this week. They seem to be doing okay, they don't appear to bounce around any more than the trimmers. I was worried that their might be too much length hanging past the rack??

    Looks to be about 4' past the rack on my dad's trailer, and 3' past the rack on mine.

    Anybody care to post how they carry theirs?

    Blower is in the way of using lowest rack.

    Thanks. The telescopic saw we've had for a while. The PAS we just got this week.

    I like the telescopic, really easy to slide out to reach what you need. I don't use it very often as it is on my dad's trailer.

    I am going to get an extension or two for the PAS that I use.

    I have no pictures of my primary enclosed trailer but:
    the trailer is lined with 20 gauge steel,
    on the right, or passenger side, I mounted four racks for the hand trimmers;
    two across the front for blowers, and;
    on the left side I mounted a rack expressly for the power pruner.
    Everything is out of side and protected from the weather, everything has a specific spot, and is secured quite well.
    Once I cut the steel plates to fit it took me maybe four hours to fabricate the remaining mounts.
