    You did say a 4x8 trailer, right? The smallest size I would recommend would be a 5x10 and that will be pushing it! You will outgrow that trailer in NO time. I would buy the biggest trailer I could afford and add the racks later, as my cashflow allowed.<br>Good luck whatever your decision.

    the 4x8 is just going to hold 1 wb (48in) I have a 16x6 and i am starting another &quot;crew&quot; to just mow the 1/4 acer lawns here and there. the trailer does not have rails like a landscape trailer. i was looking a the trimmer mate from junglejim but i would rather build one.<br>sorry if top post was confusing.<br>-Nick

    I BUILT MY OWN LOCABLE STORAGE BOX IN FRONT OF TRAILER, AND ALSO BUILT MY OWN TRIMMER RACK, THAT LOCKS ALL THREE TRIMMERS AT ONCE.<br>I HAD NEVER WELDED BEFORE, READ A FEW BOOKS ASKED A FEW FRIENDS, PRACTICED A LITTLE,AND IN TWO DAYS HAD THE BOX, ANOTHER DAY AND THE RACK WAS DONE.. REALLY NOT HARD AT ALL
