    I was wondering if the racks I often see on the sides of trailers that hold trimmers and blowers can be installed on the sides of a pickup bed. I don't use a trailer and was wondering if I could create more space in the back of the truck in this manner. Does anyone know of any supplier?

    Jungle Jim has a picture of their trimmer racks on a truck on their web site.

    The Gridiron is the way to go. It's made by Novae. I have one on my F-150, it holds two trimmers. I carry everything on my truck, sure beats dragging a trailer.

    i was thinking about setting it up for my truck. But if i think about it, I'm gonna have to take my trimmer, edger and blower out of the truck every time I stop anyhow, so whats the difference in taking them out at the beginning of the stop compared to when i need them?

    for trailers it would make more sense. but in my truck, i can get everything in pretty snug so it doesn't slide around

    I saw a guy doing commercial properties recently with no trailer and 2 mowers. He had an F-350 with a long bed and a 2 foot extension over the tailgate. He had 3 trimmers and 2 backpacks on racks along with rakes and gas cans and cooler keeping everything up off the floor of the truck. In the bed he had 2 super surfers which fit in nicely (he ramped them onto the truck). Made me jealous that he doesn't need a trailer. I can't say what kind of racks they were...but a nice compact set up.
