    I am using a 6x12 enclosed and am trying to find an easy way to keep my 21" walk behind mowers from rolling around. How do you guys secure them? Looking for a quick in and out. :help:

    Not trying to be a dummy Yard Pro but thought somebody might have an idea. I was wanting something simpler that you could just roll it in and go. Do you strap down all your equipment every time? Seems like a waste of time!

    you can always screw down some 2x4's on the floor, like a chock.

    On my trailer, I have an eye bolt in the floor close to the wall, I use a bungee cord from there to my 36", takes a second and go...look for my pictures and you will see it in the lower right side.

    Tie downs may seem like a waste of time but that few seconds to strap your equipment in can save you a hell of alot of money if you wreck or have to do an evasive manuever. Once you find a system that works for you it only takes but a few minutes. Just think about the mess if you have lapse in concentration while driving and put the trailer wheel off the road, and cant get it back. I beleive that the one sponsor JUngle Jim does carry a wheel lock down system for what you are describing. Just my .02 but some rachet that are weight rated for your application. Good Luck
