    i am about to purchase a larger trailer and i am going to need some trimmer/edger racks for it. i have a fabricated "half cage" on my current trailer so i won't be able to use the one that i have.
    i have looked at the kind from Jungle Jim's as well as the Trimmer Trap model. i am opting for the 3 trimmer holder design. which do y'all seem to prefer and like the best? your input is greatly appreciated.

    thanks.

    I like Green Touch Industries products. They are the vinyl coated racks. The come in 2,3 or 5 trimmer capacities. (5 is only for open trailers)

    In my opinion you won't go wrong with the Trimmertrap for 3 trimmers. I would definitely buy another.

    Jungle Jim's are nice. They also save you a lot of money because their racks come packaged as a combo. The same capacity in a green touch setup would cost over twice the price. Rack for two backpacks, three trimmers, a 5-gallon water cooler, a 5-lb line of trimmer line called the "Gear Caddy" runs 227.00. Try to beat that one. By the way, the green touch racks require a seperate lock FOR EACH piece of equipment! That Sux!

    Is there a website for Jungle Jim's Trimmer Racks?

    Definately go with the TrimmerTrap's. One hand operation, no pins, lanyards, or lining up holes. They are lockable, and built very well. Wish I would have had one years ago, would have saved my old Green Machine from getting ruined rolling around in the pickup.

    This is money well spent here, dont skimp. Many other cheapies may look like a good deal, but day to day operation is very simple on a Trimmer Trap.

    Eric, Green Touch Industries make racks for enclosed trailers. 1-800-621-6919. They'll send you a catalog.
     
  9. I use the TrimmerTrap TT-2 for 3 trimmers. I love it and I would buy another one. I believe that they make one for enclosed trailers too. Check them out.

    My dealer is supposed to mount me a Trimmertrap rack on my trailer tommorrow. He said he would weld in on so it will be more secure than bolts. He said it will be the one that holds 3. He said it would cost around $100.00. I asked him does it hold 2 and he said no, it holds 3. I thought the one that holds 2 was $100.00 and the 3 banger was around $170.00. Well see, maybe he gets them at a better price than I can. In any event, I'm sure it will be a very welcome piece of equipment.
