    Just purchased a 6'x14' Haulmark Trailer. Was wondering if anybody could give my ideas on how to hang all equipment. Have 2 48" walk behinds ( no problem there) 2 backpack blowers, 2 trimmers, hedge trimmer chain saw. Not sure to to hang equipment so it stays during transit. Any pictures would be helpful also. Thanx :blob2:

    I've had great luck with these guy's from Home Depot. Cheap and work great.

    those calmps look like a great idea. I am going to try and use them in our van. Just starting out, so We'll try to get some before/after pics up to check out.
    Thanks for the tip!

    Just check out the clamp pic. You'll want to cut about 3/4" off of one end of each clamp end. This allows the clamp to close down on the round stuff.
    Good luck,
    Pete

    Switchless: What do you use to anchor the 2x4s to the wall? I see the metal braces but what type of wall anchors do you use with the hollow wall of the trailer? Thanks.

    Also what do you use to hold the blowers in place?

    Just to be sure, I glued, then used 4" lag screws on the 2x4, then added the small angle braces.....

    I had it mounted and it was more trouble than it was worth. It has to come out for every lawn, so I just leave it on the side. It's much easier and faster, at least for me.
