    I've got a tiny 4x8 open trailer with 4' plywood siding all around. I'm looking into getting a trimmer rack for 3 trimmers. I only have 2 now, but expect to get another soon. What rack do you guys reccomend, and where can I get one? I'm also intrested in getting a backpack blower rack, but that may have to wait depending on the price.
    Where do most of you mount the trimmers? I've seen a few in the front, but why?

    I have the trimmer trap rack that holds three. It works great but over time the rubber cushions that hold the equipment wear out and if you don't replace them the rack can wear holes into the trimmer shaft. Mine are older so maybe they have changed the design. Otherwise it's a great piece of equipment.

    I have learned (from this site) that the best place to put the rack is on the passenger side so when you park, the trimmers will be on the curb side and not the traffic side. Trimmer Trap:

    Dearborne trailers sell trimmer, backpack blower racks and gas can racks on ebay. Just to a search for weedeater rack or dearborne trailers. I mounted mine on the front after being on the passenger side since I somtimes park on both sides of the street so I can keep my truck clean.

    Got mine from Horton Iron Works for $40 but then again I have connections. They're not putting them on retail. As said before...check Ebay...they have some good stuff.
