    Which is the better quality made Trimmer Rack? Trimmer Trap or the units from Jungle Jims??

    Just stepped up in the world by replacing that old 36" Toro Proline belt drive unit with a 36" Exmark Hydro Viking. Also bought a 52" Scag Tiger Cub I like how compact the unit is. Both cut great and man what a time saver the Tiger Cub is! Dont know why I went so long with out one?

    Ive enjoyed my Jungle Jim's racks very much. Purchased the Gear Caddy system. Depending who you ask someone will like just about anything out there so be prepared for lots of different answers.

    I have the 2 place Trimmer Trap trimmer trap racks. Some people say they are terrible, I see nothing wrong with them. Once you get used to using them, they are great. I do have a Jungle Jim Blower Mate BP rack though that is okay.
     
  4. The Trimmer Trap IMO best on the market.

    One knob does it all. One motion and you can put in or remove it.

    I've seen JungleJims open up while in transport.

    LGF,
    Have you ever gotten an answer about who/where has GridIron racks? Know I've seen them somewhere but unable to locate by searching so far.

    I studied on this before making a purchase. I bought the Trimmer Trap tt2 pro 4. I like the simple, one pull operation. I also bought their back pack sprayer rack because it has nice wide straps instead of a cable. But, I bought the blower mate from Jungle Jim's because it sets the blower over the rail instead of outside the trailer.

    Since i keep a lock on mine all the time during tansport and when im not using them yet on a property, due to the amount of theft in this area, its no way for it to open. Without the locks on them i would agree they could swing open on you if you hit a good bump.
