    Im gettin a new 6x12 trailer but my question is what side should i put the trimmer rack? I work solo so i figured put it on the drivers side so i dont have to walk around to start trimming. but that the side the cars pass. What side is the best?

    passenger due to being by the curb, never in the street getting handhelds off the the trailer

    Mine is on the front, only because my spare tire is on the right. I also have the Gorilla lift.

    Passenger side of trailer. I just put them in the bed of the truck so I dont have to worry about messing with a rack.

    Ive got 2 sets of racks. One is on the front and holds up to 3 pieces and the other is on the passenger side of trailer. To be honest it depends on how you pull up to your yard. I dont like pulling up next to the curb of the yard Im trying to cut: (1) because i have more room to edge (2) I can blow the clippings alot better and there's no leftovers like there are when truck is in the way. Its just easier in residential areas. When I cut my commercials it doesnt matter bc its just a bigger parking lot. Hope it helps

    Passenger side for two reasons: (1) closest to curb while mowing (2) If one should fall while going down the road it will not fall into oncoming traffic.
