    just keep the bungee away from the muffler. You can also use a small line to secure it down with. it dosen't take much at all!!!!:dizzy:

    1 inch webbing with buckle type quick pull. I bolt one side to the trailer and the other slips onthe handle bars.

    When I take along a 21" I use bungie cords also.

    On the Toro Proline for example, there are these braces on the bottom on the handles used to set the bar height. I hook a bungie to that on each side and stretch them to the trailer wall. Keeps the cords away from the muffler and the mower stays put. In a wreck it might go flying though...

    I welded a piece of angle iron behind the rear wheel of the toro. The front wheel in sandwhiched to the front of the trailer.
    If you can't access the front of the trailer due to equipment like zero turn or walk behind placement on the trailer then it kinda just sucks. I use a steel braided cable witha d clamp for quick disconnect of the 21. It is not the best idea I am sure but I kept cutting the bungees on the front deck height adjusters.
