    Does anybody have ideas for a rack system that mounts in the trailer hitch, that could have two mowers put on it? Would be nice to be able to put the tail gate down to empty clippings without removing it.

    You're talking about a couple of 21" mowers aren't you? Northern Tool has something. Personally I'd mount them on the front of the truck with two hitches not just one. Any welder could do it for you. He could even make it hinged so it could fold up when you're not using it, making it look like a brush guard.

    My question is why are you collecting clippings? this is a horrible thing to do to any grass.

    All of our HOA's accounts require it. We try to tell them not to but its what they require for the contract.

    My truck when I work in the city...


    The handle folds straight up on the Toro and the ramp stores upright.
    No way you're getting two mowers on this one. (from Harbor Freight)
    At least not unless you have them hanging over the back or something.

    There are probably very expensive carriers that would work if you start Googling.

    How do you go with ground clearance, say your coming out of a steep driveway? Any issue with putting it on a standard height vehicle?
