    Ok guys maybe I can get some help here. No luck in the commercial section. I've only been doing this on my own for one season. Anyway, I bought a used trimmer rack today and I am having trouble getting my trimmers and edger to stay upright. They keep rolling over upsidedown. (being there topheavy) Is it Ok to transport them upsidedown. If not any suggestions on fixing the problem.

    That should be fine, i have an open trailer and when i put them in the trailer i put them upright, but when i get to a job they are upside down. So when i travel they are upside down all day. I like to set them upright while I'm mowing. As long as the caps are on tight there should be no problem. You car run them upside down, so there should be no problem leaving them upside down while travling.

    can you mount something inside the area (like plastic or clothe) where the trimmer sets to stop the movement? For example, trimmer trap has a plastic piece that helps to stabilize the equipment
