    i (badly) need a set of good trimmer racks for a trailer, any suggestions? i lost a three month old trimmer off of the back of the truck today and a dump truck loaded with road gravel hit it about 40 mph. $289 in about 10 pieces now. i had to go by and buy a new one on the way to the next job, at least the local dealer was on the way and not like an hour out of the way.

    That really sucks--but I could have easily been me. I'm lazy about making sure my trimmer is safe on the trailer. I just lay it down beside the mower and sometimes bungee it. After reading this I think I'll get some racks at Tractor Supply--I've been putting off buying them for a couple of years now.
