    I am planning on putting one of these products on my machine. I just want to know what are the pros and cons of both and also which one would you pick if it was you? Thanks Matt

    IMHO-go on ebay and search for echo or stihl and you will find a number of 3 place trimmer racks. They are good and usually around 60.XX. You can get them for either enclosed or open or machines and usually will be painted by the seller for free...

    I have a rack from ebay and so far so good..........

    never have owned anything but trimmertrap, but have seen all the other racks on other peoples trailers it seems like, and really think that trimmertrap has the best rack. instructions and customer support leave a lot to be desired, though. Really loved my bullrider sulkie, just really well made, like everything else they make, but had to really struggle through truly AWFUL instructions, like my eight-year-old wrote and put them together and then faxed them to me on a twenty-year-old fax machine. UGH! could barely read them.

    as far as the trimmer racks go... go with trimmertrap. the quickest and safest on the market( my opinion) the blower rack .... go with jungle jims

    I have the TrimmerTrap TT-2. Holds 3 trimmers. Really easy to place the trimmer in and out of. Easier than the one that holds 2.

    Well thanks guys for all of the help. But on trimmer trap can you lock the trimmers so no one can take off with them?
