    I am planning on buying a new trimmer rack and have narrowed it down to either the Xtreme Rack or Jugnle Jim's rack. Both would be the three position model. All help is appreciated.

    I have the Xtreme racks and I like them.
    Easy to use and very secure. The down side is that you need to get those aluminum blocks on all your hand held equipment.

    Mr Frog:
    How do the racks attach to an open trailer, just bolted on with lock washers? (assuming angle iron top rail) Wouldn't the racks have some sway? Do yours sway or are they solid?

    Just ordered the extreme racks for my new inclosed trailor.After about 2 months, I could'nt be happier. The trimmers themselves act as a brace for the top of the rack. Very ridgid. The aluminum blocks weight next to nothing and even act as a handhold when edging. MHO

    I mounted mine Extreme rack to the top and bottom on the inside at the front.
    It's not a good pic of it. The top of the rack is next to the black strip above the license plate on the truck. It's hard to make it out good with the shadow from the rear wiper. It's solid on the trailer and it doesn't move at all. I cut and welded the brackets that came with the rack to the top part of the trailer then bolted it on top and bottom.

    I have 2 Jungle Jims single trimmer racks on my open trailer. One on each side. One for me, one for the helper...and there is always a trimmer available, no matter how the truck is parked.

    I love those racks. Super fast and easy. The trimmers seem very secure and out of the way. The racks are really well made, with good paint. They bolt right through the top rail of the trailer, and are very strong. I had to drill holes for the bolts, which was pretty easy. I use them to fuel the trimmers, and for reloading string.

    I am going to get a JJ blower rack soon.
