My racks were locked one side by design. So the thief took off with the power head. I added a hitch pin lock to the other side to prevent this.



If you have a rack like this it will cause the shaft to bend. All the weight is on the ends of the shafts causing it to bend in the middle. I have the bent shafts in the basement for proof of this.



This one supports the weight of the engine. I dont think they wouldve added this feature if there wasnt a problem in the first place. I have heard many people complain about the shafts bending.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
This is another reason why I'm getting an enclosed trailer so that my equipment isn't affected much by the weather. I've already got a commercial blower that cost $250.00, I have two commercial trimmers that cost $300.00 a piece, and a commercial edger that cost $275.00. All of these my Dad bought at his work which would have been $825, but he gets 50% discount so it was only $412.50. The Toro commercial mower I am getting from his work would normally cost someone $3,500.00 is only going to cost me $1,750.00 We are going to have trimmer racks and a blower rack purchased from www.trailerracks.com, plus we are getting a couple 5 gallon gas container racks, and a garden tool rack, and a hedge trimmer rack. The trimmers and edger, and hedge trimmer will be on one side, with the garden tool rack and gas container racks being on the other, with commercial mower being in the middle with a fast strap tie down system that will wrap around the back wheels to keep the mower from moving. We will have the tool box in the front with the trimmer line spool rack in the front of the trailer. Once we get everything and get everything assembled I will take pictures so everyone can see the GreenBlue setup, going to be a pretty nice setup and getting excited about it getting here.
