What ever they are called.. to keep the mower from moving around on the trailer
Green touch has them. Awfully expensive though.
How about making something? I installed "D" rings in the floor (one in front and one in back of each tire) and used small ratchet straps over the tires to hold them down.
since i'm a solo-op i only have one machine. so i have 2 small chains with hooks that come up from the sides of the trailer and grab onto the loops on my Gravely's deck. then i just winch it back with a rachet strap. It works well for me, but i've got a relatively small trailer at the moment, so I'll need to rig something different when i get my 6x10
If you live near a Lesco, they sell wheel clamps for $31.75 ea. They work awesome!! They save so much time strapping your mower down.
The Lescos are the Green Touch. I just can't see spending $128 (for 2 mowers) to strap it down.
For about $15 you can get a pack of 4 ratchet straps. $10 or $12 more for "D" rings if you need them (you can just hook to rails of open trailer, but I know Tom uses an enclosed).
Plus you have the racthet straps for other uses if you need them (and I always do).
Jonathan.. I am actually looking for a friend of mine who needs to tie down a Commando. My Lazer has never moved in my trailer using only 2x4's on either side of the wheels. Good memory...
Trimmer trap makes a nice sytem , I am not sure what they cost ?
