    How are other people tying down there walk behind mowers? I have a
    Gravely 36 walk behind and it wants to creep side to side in the trailer. I have been using a ratchet strap from the trailer sides to the handles and it works ok. My front wheels stick out different lengths and that causes the creeping problem.

    I have a scag 36 that I use the Pro Locker on. It locks to front caster wheel and keeps mower in place. It uses up some space on trailer floor though. I got mine at my lesco dealer. I like it.

    If it is a gear drive just leave it in gear and it wont go anywhere unless your going off roading with your trailer.

    No, definitely tie it down... what if you get in an accident? I just got a set of fastraps and they are awesome.

    just got one for my 36" exmark wb - best part is that ifyou want to take it off - pull a pin and you've got a relatively smoth floor in the trailer. also came with two sets of mounting brackets, so if you want to be able to configure your trailer for different routes and machines - you can do it at no extra cost. got mine at my dealer for $90 on sale from $120
