    I have used the trimmer trap racks and they work well. I switched to a traimmer rack and a blower and water rack from a company called Gridiorn (I think). They are the best -- easy to adjust to my equipment (echo) and hold things tight. I would recommend.

  3. Ask your dealer if he can get you a trimmer trap
    We have one on each of our trailers that hold three each.
    You also can get one for a backpack blower.

    we use trimmer trap as well. It fits any brand.

    You could also try Jungle Jim's or Green Touch.

    I make all of my racks except for trimmer. Trimmer trap has such a good one and it would be hard to copy. They are real handy.

    Jungle Jims trimmer racks are hard on the echo handles ,and there Backpack blower rack is a far cry from perfection , Trimmer trap makes the best in my opinion ,I had them on my trailer that got stolen and in a moment of haste I went with Jungle Jim -to my regret:( :(

    I would have to agree with most of what has been said above. I have used both trimmertrap and green touch ( which is available at Lesco).

    Trimmer trap is the quickest to use and I like the fact that it mounts at two points.

    Green Touch is a little more theft resitant.

    Good luck!

    I have a trimmer trap rack on my trailer. I am very happy with it. It is very easy to use and to lock up at the end of the day. Definitely worth the money.
