    I have been thinking of this for a while. I don't have the engineering skills to fabricate it myself. I am looking for ideas to secure mowers on a trailer that is simple and doesn't require straps.

    I am thinking there is a way to permanately mount something to the trailer that makes it simple to secure mowers with a simple flip of a lever or locking arm or something along those lines. Any ideas of how it could be done?

    This would only work for those of us that carry the same equipment all the time.

    The trimmertrap company makes a device called the "kreeper keepers"

    Go to their website www.trimmertrap.com and click on "Accessories" then on KK1- Kreeper Keepers.

    Rayco has a good ideal on their new 4x4 stumpgrinder and trailer combo. You just pull the grinder on the trailer and drop a pin located on the front of the grinder into a mount on the trailer and drive off.
