    what would or do you , all that have them , use them for ?

    weed eaters will just get bang up, and i don't think a back pac blower can fit nor a rake.so is it just for gas cans and shovels ?

    We have a seperate "rakerack" on the front of the basket on our open tailer for shovels & rakes. We keep only one can of gas in the basket...a small 2 gallon can of 2-stroke. We keep 2-six gallon cans on the floor of the trailer. We use the basket to carry a toolbox...spare blades...trimmer line...WD-40 etc...just any small odd things you may need while out on a site.

    Mine is two-level. The lower shelf holds two backpack blowers (one on each side), Chainsaw, handhed hedgesaw, and Igloo water cooler. The upper shelf holds two Snapper mowers, (one bagger, one side discharge, and a Mclane edger. (the Snappers rarely get used anymore, so the edger usually rides down in the trailer). The trimmers have their own racks in the sides.

    My cage will hold a bp on each end, a chainsaw and various shorter hand tools,like a pick for ex., a couple of tarps, and a small tool box. That's what I have in there right now anyway. I can get a pic, if requested. Its not wide enough for shovels, rakes and such. Trimmers go on the rack.
