    what kind of trailer racks do you guys use. What are the advantages and disadvatages. It just seems like there are a bunch out there that are justa little different.

    I have a rack for the trimmers, BP blower and sprayer, and water cooler from Trimmer Trap. I also have a trimmer rack for my 48 WB, and a boot for my 21 or spreader by Jungle Jim's. This summer at the Expo I'll be looking for something to hold hedge trimmers, gas cans, and a HH blower.

    BTW, all the ones I have have been awesome.

    I have an enclosed trailer. I bought the Trimmer trap that holds 3. They aren't really made for enclosed trailers. You need the hieght to get them out. But, with a little motification (saws all) it works fine now.

    I use the Husqvarna "Grid Iron" system.

    This system mounts on an open trailer or enclosed.

    I like the locking system.. And the various mounting systems for trimmers, chainsaws, etc.

    Good Luck...

    I designed my own. For the trimmer rack part of it, I mimicked the trimmer trap. Mine can hold gas cans, all hand held tools, 21" mowers, 2 BP blowers, wb bagger and 3 trimmers/stick edgers. It is great. It took some time and know-how plus a welder and about $300, but it was well worth it.
