    A lot of $$ for what they are...been eyeballing them too...Rack'em brand is sold by a local store nearby but they want $500 for the basket and a top that you can padlock...and you have to assemble it yourself...I only have one trimmer and one backpack blower...so far I'm doing ok with them sitting on the deck...I jockey stuff around as needed (gas cans etc.)

    The cheapest one is made by carry on and sold at TSC, its just better to custom build your own

    I built my own using 2" angle and expanded steel,has a front hinged lid that has a deadbolt type lock,76" long,22" tall,15"deep,works great but does add alot of weight to the trailer,My total material cost was $120.I could probably do prettty well building them and selling them,I found a Very cheap source for steel though.(Riverfront Steel,Cincinnati,OH)
