    i am currently sitting my 2 stihl blowers and one echo trimmer and one toro hedger in the back of my truck. i have mounted 2 trimmers but i don't like the setup. can any of you guys post pictures of how you mount your equipment. if no pictures then please discuss in detail how your blowers and trimmers are mounted on your trailers. i am buying a second trailer next year and this info would be very helpful. :)

    I use the trimmer trap to hold my Stihl's.

    The blower rack is a trimmer trap also. They make one especially for the Stihl blowers.

    What I did was make just a wood box on the front of my trailer, works good fairly inexpensive.I put it high enough i can still mower under the box.The box i made is open if you are looking towards your truck.The other sides are closed.I put my grass catcher cage, gas etc in the box.On the bootom i have eyebolts so i can lock my cage down.Hope this helps.Goodluck:p

    Trimmer Trap here, we use the trimmer trap rack for 3 trimmers and the combination boxes for blowers, hedge trimmers, or chain saws. Also they have the back pack blower mounts and tool mounts. All of these are available for open or enclosed trailers.

    I have Green Touch racks and they make the same ones for an open trailer. Obviously they will be configured differently for an open trailer.
