    What "Parts" were missing? IIRC, mine were just a bolt on type thing.

    I can say the same thing. Bought the trimmer holder and there was 1 or 2 bolts missing from that. Bought the water cooler holder and ALL the bolts, washers and nuts were missing. I just went to Home Depot and got what I needed it was a whole lot closer. It is just the principal of the whole thing that was irritating!

    speaking for myself, I got a commercial discount and the amount of parts that were missing was probably under $5.00. I was a bit surprised more then anything.

    Well, I bought a tt-2 pro 4 and the backpack sprayer rack and the line holder a couple of years ago and none of my parts were missing.
    Sorry you're having a problem.

    I cant remember if mine came with mounting hardware or not. I do remember having to go into my bolt bins to get what I needed though. I have mine mounted to my trailer and my trailer is a tube frame. I needed 3" bolts to go through the tube. So, I'm sure they wouldn't have shipped both 1" and 3" length bolts.

    Only thing I had to do was install the rubber pads on the hooks. Everything else was pre-assembled.

    The only "parts" that came with mine were the pads like TLS had said in the previous post. No mounting hardware, bolts, etc. Same way with my blower rack, you are to use your own bolts.

    That could explain why they would charge for those "missing" parts then.
