    I am in the process of modifying an open trailer, and was wondering how to build the basket for the front. I want to keep 2 gas cans, a spool of trimmer string, a hand blower, and some other assorted items in it. What dimensions do you think would work best (width, length, height). Also, how high above the bed of the trailer should I mount it?

    Jest set out the stuff you want to put in it and take some measurements. Measure the hieght of mower/s of how far under they/it will go). Thats what I did and it worked perfect. I just used angle iron and mesh/expanded steel.

    mine is 2x2 i believe, and the width of the trailer (6'). i can cary 2 bp blowers, 2 5gal cans, 1 2.5gal can, 1 pruner, 1 chainsaw, trimmer line, 2.5gal roundup concentrate, and misc oil, edger blades, etc...it took some arranging, but i could fit all this and still be somewhat comfortable working out of it.
