    Okay, I'm pretty much all done. I will be sure to update everyone once the season starts and if I make any changes. I still haven't finalized the plans on the cooler mount. I'm thinking about a swing out shelf. Also, notice the old mower tires under the 21s. My service man told me about using them. They work great, didn't cost a dime, and hold the mowers pretty solid.

    I tried to make everything as user friendly as possible while also making the most of the available space. I still have room for my wheelbarrow, my leaf vac/chipper, and my chainsaw.

    I also wanted to be able to reconfigure regardless of what equipment I'm running that day. I should be able to move the 48 to where the 36 is etc. This would also allow some flexability in mowers down the road (stander or z)

    No, it's the Gladiator series from Lowe's (though Sears might sell it???).

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I wanted to show some of the things I did so that others might benefit (and me as well from the feedback)

    I wanted to try out a verticle rack for the trimmers, but I didn't have the room because of the mowers.

    My original plan was to mount the cooler above the fuel station, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work (strapping it down, being able to fill your container, etc)

    The other idea was to mount it on the wall at the rear, but I thought a: it would be in the way, and b: if mounted up high someone would blow their shoulder out eventually trying to lift 40+ lbs over their heads
