    I want to install something on my 14 foot trailer that will hold..

    my trimmers ( 3 Echos 2-curved & 1 straight)
    my blower (1 hand Held Echo)
    a small cooler (havn't bought one yet)
    some tools
    and some gas cans 3-4

    Anybody know where I can find something to bolt on that will store all of this? I don't have access to a welder but could fab one out of Presure treated lumber if I could'nt find a pre-built one.

    Do you have any hours on that echo? Hard to believe that "trimmer rack" hold up on a daily basis.

    many, many, many, hours on the echo. just a few on the redmax.
    I haven't had a problem with it yet, eventually i will invest in a rack.

    Well, reason I ask, I have an open utility trailer now. Next year (possibly this year if all goes really well) we are looking into a bigger trailer. Can't decide on the enclosed or not.

    Not sure how much of a difference the enclosed trailer would be for helping with rain, wind, etc. hitting it on the open trailer. After a few weeks and a storm or two the mufflers start rusting.

    oh ok, well that echo, was given to me from a coustomer, i never really though too much of the thing because of the fact that it is an echo but i thow it when i get mad, run crappie gas in it, i think i was ran over by a truck at one point in it's life span with me and it has plastic cover on it eather. So don't judge my trailer on that pice of equiptment.

    I love my enclsed trailer. If I didn't get an enclosed trailer, I would have wound up buying a shed to keep all my stuff in and work out of because I hate to leave my stuff out in the rain. I would never go with an open trialer.
