    was wondering what some of you use for trimmer racks? did you buy or make? I was going to make my own and have them powder coated but they want $45.00 to powder coat each side. Do not know if its worth making them.I have a Big Tex 60SP pipe trailer.any suggestions?

    We have Trimmer Trap racks. They are great there is no pins to loose or pin to forget to put in. They also lock with a single padlock.

    I dont have a trailer yet. What can I use to secure my trimmer in the back of my pickup, also i already have wooden sides built up around the box. I know i just need hooks into the wooden sides but they would have to stick out somehow so the guard and motor arent against the sides.

    Made my own for about $25.00 and I have no complaints so far.

    Bought two straight black painted step railings and made my own

    attachments from some Stanley brackets. drilled straight thru

    the poles and use a pin and dog clip. Works great about 5

    seconds to load or unload.

    I bought mine from my Exmark dealer. I don't know what brand they are but have worked well for the 5 years Iv'e owned them. I think they were about $110.00 installed.
