    Ok, so you have your trimmer and you are ready to weld/bolt your mount onto your trailer. Which side do you put it on, passenger or driver side? I see pros and cons to both.

    Passenger side Pro - No traffic coming at ya
    Passenger side Con - Takes a little longer getting around the truck

    Driver side pro - Less time to get around the truck
    Driver side con - Traffic

    What do you guys do? I have always used it on the passenger side, but I have a new trailer and new mounts and was considering the driver side.

    Force of habit for me, but I close my gate and walk to drivers side and before I get in truck I walk past my trimmers and check to see if they are "locked" down. So I always have them on drivers side of trailer. I guess everyone is differnet, as long you have a place for your money in the truck payup

    Curb side. That way you're not stepping into traffic to get a tool.

    I like the passenger side. Your out of the street, I refuel mine still in the rack. Some day's the traffic can be real heavy. Don't like being the target.

    I like the drivers side. Faster and easy access

    Curb side..but if you are having issues deciding put it on the front. best of both worlds?
