    I know this has probably been asked a bunch before but couldnt find much on it. I just purchased a 6X10 open utility trailer. I want to put a weedeater rack on it. I am thinking or looking at going for capabilities to hold 3 weedeaters. Anyone have any plans for making a homemade or do it yourself? Any guidance is needed and appreciated. Pictures of there current set-ups? Or is there a better rack out there for the money? Not really wanting to put a fortune into this for it is on a back up trailer per say and a crew only takes it out couple days a week or weekends only.

    Trimmer racks run about 70-225 for three position racks here. I'd suggest just buying a set and bolting them on. You'll have 4 hours at least into building them plus material/electric/gas etc. Check out a few local mower shops they normally carry the cheaper steel racks with the part that turns to allow the handles out.
