    I was thinking about getting a cheap trimmer rack ($70) from lowe's and bolting it to the bedside of my F150. Think it would work?

    ive seen people do it, just dont get too close to anyone....
    they mount them so the weedwackers face outwards, just make sure you mount them right so the trimmers wont mess up your paint or window from sliding around

    I just today ordered the Jungle Jim trimmer racks that bolt into the bed. $106 from Power Equipment Parts Warehouse. One of the sponsors at the top of the page.

    Those racks from lowes are a waste. The trimmers slide and twirl like crazy in them.

    I saw them at Lowe's, too, but resisted the urge. As of now, I'm just laying mine in the bed of my truck when I don't have to carry the trailer around.

    You can take an old milk crate and cut one of the sides off of it with a sawsall so that you can set the engine down in it in the bed of the truck. You know, just saw a 3 or 4 inch strip out of the center all the way down one of the sides so the shaft will go in it. With the engine in the milk crate it wont slide all over the bed of the truck and get skinned all to hell.
