Might not work for everyone but it works for me, the back end is kept from sliding out by a piece of angle that blocks tires from sliding the new proto type is removable in about 5 sec. for freeing up trailor space

dont your mowers have a brake on them? I have been mowing for about 7 years and have never seen the need to hold down a mower. I havent had one fly off the trailer yet.

CNYscapes have you ever been in an accident while carrying mowers? it only takes one time
 
I think ill stick with my E track i dont like the idea of having to bolt down such a large piece of metal just for the reason that some people use many different pieces of equiptment through the year
but its not a bad idea cant blame ya for trying

Nice concept, and the fact that it can be removed quickly is a plus. Good luck, it's always good to see new ideas from people in the field and not just a labcoat.
