    I strap my Hustler down with tie-downs at the back. One on each side just in front of the little wheels in back.

    I purchased a prolocker last spring.......good investment.......drive on, drive off......simple locking system........easily removed if you want to haul something else (like mulch)........you can purchase through most lawn equipment dealers........

    What's a strap???? I just close the gate and let the parking brake do the rest. Pro lockers would be great if you parked the same mower in the same spot every time. I move my mowers around on the trailer too much.

    Im the same as "all ferris" my mowers are on different spots of the trailer through out the day. just drive on the trailer and set the brakes. we use straps if we go on the high way or interstatejust cause the DOT frowns on you if you dont have your load tied down.

    we strap each mower down every move. I think that Pro lockers would be good but we always have the mowers in different spots on the trailer. Plus some days we take different mowers and things with us.
