I just bought an Isuzu npr box to mow out of. I am really excited about it. Wanting some racks for it. I am getting the xtreme trimmer rack from greentouch. Wanting to know what your opinion is about the best blower racks. Also thinking about a fueling station to go under the body 35/14 gallon. They are really pricey though $2500+.

GridIron makes a great rack for weedeaters.I have a 96 GMC Cabover and I put a 50 gallon tank off a 4700 Int.truck under the bed on the passanger side with a pump and hose,works great.The tank cost about 250.00 installed then i got the pump and hose and installed it.

Do the gidiron racks let the trimmers spin? Also who did u get to install the tank and is it electric pump or what? Sounds like a good option, let me know more details please.

The gridiron racks have a u shaped holder for the weed-eaters they won't rotate around but i had to bend the holder a little to make it hold weed-eater tanks upright so they wouldn't leak when it got hot.They also have one lock rod to lock all.The gas tank pump is 12 volt like goes on a tank like for a transfer tank on the back of a pickup.We have a place here that buys trucks and pulls beds off and make dump bed trucks and they had a few wrecked trucks that we pulled the tanks from.You could get a tank from a salvage yard and have any welding shop put it on your truck.Hope this helps
