    In a poll on Jungle Jim vs Trimmer Trap.........Trimmer Trap was out front 4 to 1! I a little confuse,because JJ is a square tubeibing and look to be stronger than TT flat bar with a small angle type lip!I still am not sure which is better constructed.Lets hear from people who use either or both brands. :waving:

    never tried jungle jims but I have had two trimmer traps. In tough conditions/rough roads the two uprights tend to bend. After a few mods they have been ok. They are definatly a time and space saver though.

    Just got my Trimmer Trap over the winter. I've got the 3trimmer holder, single blower rack, and the trimmer line spool rack. All have been great so far. Well worth the investment.

    I have the Trimmer Trap tt2 pro4 which holds 4 trimmers. I have the Trimmer Trap line spool holder that attaches to the trimmer rack. I bought the Jungle Jims blower rack because It held the blower (Echo 750) recessed on the trailer rail. It started to bend and they sent me a new, stronger unit for free (thanks, Jennifer). The trimmer rack is the easiest to use and very strong. One knob to release any and all, one lock for all. Forgot to add-I also have the TT backpack sprayer holder.

    I really like the TT stuff-however JJ has a package deal (gear caddy) that has a 3 trimmer rack-2 backpack blower rack and awater cooler rack along with a trimmer line holder for $289.00/that seems to be a pretty good deal! :cool:

    I don't like the Gear Caddy because it takes more steps to load/unload. Just like home electronics, I choose components rather than a "do it all" piece. I think the pro 4 was $229, I don't think twice about the extra money spent especially on a hot day when I'm dog tired and I don't have to wrestle getting my equipment loaded up.
