    I bought a used trimmer rack today for $50 and after I installed it I am having problems keeping my trimmers and edger from turing upside down because they are top heavy. Is it OK if there upside down? If not any tips to fix the problem.

    It shouldn't matter if they are upside down. The motors are designed so that it doesn't matter what angle it is tilted at.

    they might move slightly, but nothing should turn upside down. Do you have a picture of the rack that you can post?

    sorry no picture. my trimmers roll all the way upside down and my edger just tilts sideways. Thanks for the reply.

    It may not be a huge problem, but I dont think it would be any good for the carb. I know the commercial carbs are made to run upside down, but when its not running I think it would flood the carb. Also make sure the gas caps are tight. And now that I think of it, an upside down piece of equip would probably flood to the point the air filter would get saturated.

    Bungee cords are a good thing

    I pinch my handles on the back side of the rack when able. This is relevant only if you have the same style of rack I use (Buyers). Heres a picture if you can make it out.
