  • Truck trimmer racks

    I hear a lot of talk about trimmer racks but not much about ones that can attach to the bed rails. Does anyone know of a manufacture that makes one like this?

    For me this would be more convenient since I dont always bring the trailer for brush clearing and what not. I end up throwing them in the back of the truck and this isnt the most secure thing to do.

      I use Jungle Jim racks. I took some 2"x2" angle and welded 1"x2" tube where my stake pockets are then bolded the racks through the tube and the bed rail.

      Hopefully this picture will explain what I mean..

        so the 1x2 is vertical in the stake pocket making a T with the 2x2?

            Yes the square tube is welded like a "T". I will get some better pictures of it tomorrow.

            The thing on the tailgate is a folding ramp. I use it to load my mower on days I don't need the trailer.

              I found a slightly better picture of the rails. I removed one side of mounts because I rarely use the edger and I stupidly bent one of the trimmer rack mounts.

                  Found these while looking at some trimmer racks. Thought you might be able to use them.

                    I already figured out how I'm going to mount them. The only problem is its in the way of a ladder rack. I might make a ladder rack that goes on 1 side to solve this.

                      Well I tried angle iron but I had to get precut strips and it wasnt thick enough. So I returned it and used wood.

                      The pictures suck because its dark. It was 93 today and I waited till the sun to go down.

                          Holy crap. If you came along side of me on the road, I'd apply the brakes and let you get ahead of me so that rack doesn't fall over on my car when you hit a bump!

                              It actually held up pretty good. I had some 1 inch eye bolts holding it down. I dont like the racks though someone stole the middle trimmer not to long after that. Then last week with the rack now on trailer someone stole the husquarvana(bottom one) and fs90 that replaced the fs55.

                              The racks act as a display case for thieves.
