    I'm getting some trimmer racks for the trailer, i was thinking they would go on the front passenger side of the trailer facing out. Just wanted some opinions about placement from you guys who have used them a lot.

    Curb side of the trailer about mid-way of the length. The blower rack near the front also on the curb side. The left side of the trailer is used for hedge trimmers, chain saw, rakes, shovels and other tools that are not used as often.

    that is where mine is, i liked the idea of the front of the trailer so they can be accesed from either side of trailer but i didnt like having to step over the trailer tongue all day, just an easy way to trip and fall and get hurt and damage a trimmer

    Front passenger is the most popular location, but I currently have mine mounted at the tongue because I built a side gate for trailer. Now I am building a storage rack built out of tubing and expanded metal, so now I will be moving trimmer racks to rear passenger side.
