    Looks real nice! I would want something to only go to the top of the higher rail on the trailer though. no need for it any higher for me.

      What about mounting the rack on the side of the trailer facing in. that way if one falls off it falls in the trailer and you can mount a sign on it. Someone around here was telling me that the cops are checking trailers for anything that could fall off.
      In theory it sounds like a great idea. Though, once you park your mower in the trailer, it's going to be a hassle to get to the trimmer(s) with the mower in the way.

        good point, Cheese.

        also, do you guys have a 2x4 for the back tires to go over even though you have the parking brake on? more of a safety thing?

        also, what about rakes, shovels, etc etc. do you always keep these on the trailer? if so, how did you make a holder? i have seen pvc of course, single 1ft or more peices. also, i have seen a giant 8" or 1ft pvc in the corner and all go in together.

        thoughts on this?

        i really need to figure out a blower holder.

          How would you guys make this more secure? add an angle bar on both sides, on the outside? use paint to show you what i mean..

          other ideas?

            I got my trailer like this with the sides built up (by the guy that had it last). it is great and and the $120 I spent on the 4 signs is money well spent you can read the number from across Home Depots parking lot. I lock the tailgate to make it harder to take things

            <a href="http://s1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii549/willshome/?action=view&amp;current=101114_102304.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii549/willshome/101114_102304.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

            I would not fill the trailer like this again it's a pain to unload, I like doing it the same as "Hedgemaster" in the pic

              those little supports you have shown are really not going to help much .You need more support foreward and back as those are the biggest forces when rolling down the street .You have basically a 4 foot lever with a fourty pound load on it ,swaying fore and aft as you drive down the road ,it wont last and can damage your equipment or even fly off and kill someone .

                Here's My Trailer.This was the day I got it, I have added a tool rack on the Curb Side and a tool box on the tongue and had the tail gate center filled in.
                I am going to make a Side rail boxes for my Blower, Chainsaw and fuel cans.

                    I guess that didnt work .Anyways,the guys rack failed at the bottom,so he now needs a new rack and has expensive trimmer repairs to go along with it .

                              If you are like me you will be wishing for a bigger trailer in a couple months.

                              I don't like the racks or where they are mounted. They shouldn't allow the trimmers to turn like that and I don't see a way to lock the racks.

                                if your talking about locking my trimmers, there is a lock at the bottom. middle bar swivels around with 4 bars on top, go over shaft. on bottom, this same piece meets a hole where you can add a lock.

                                personally, i like where they are, just needs to be more secure. still working on getting material to make this happen.

                                remember, it has not left the garage since i got all this 3 weeks ago. i have no accounts. still working on business cards.
