    For all you gooroo's out there who are using an enclosed trailer. What type of system or what materials did you use for mounting trimmers, blowers, etc. to the inside walls? I was thinking of using the standard garage organizers you get at Wal Mart, and then running a bungy cord across all implements to hold them in place. What are your thoughts?

    Thanks ahead of time.

    i use green touch industries racks in my trailer. i have a two place trimmer rack, backpack blower rack, hand tool rack, bungee cord rack and mower hold downs for my walkbehind. so far they have worked out great. then in the corner of the trailer i drilled a few milk crates to the floor for extra storage for oil, rags etc....

    Mike here is a link to a thread with my trailer pics i built all my racks myself i only have about 60 bucks tied up in racks i didn't see a need to spend a large amount for racks when i needed a raining day project anyway. I have enough space for 2 trimmers 1 stick edger 1 backpack blower 2 five gallon cans 1 2 1/2 gallon mix can trimmer line, hedge trimmer,spare blades and all the other odd and end things.

    My sprayers are mounted with two sets of hooks the top is clamped by a bunge cord. I have tags (see green rope) that help make and keep up with what is mixed in tanks. Just switched to a card system on a hook, working better.
