I am trying to get some trimmer racks for my edger and trimmer for the new trailer. I have looked on ebay and some other websites. Where do you guys think i can get some for a good deal? Wasnt there like a site called trimmer trap or something?

Also, how exactly do trimmer racks hook up to the trailer? Will i need to get them welded on?

Some info would really help me out. Thanks!

Hi Luke I bought a trimmer rack from trimmer trap and from what I have seen of the ones around where I'm at they are really good. I only bought the TT-1 which hold only 2 trimmers but it was all I needed I think that it cost about $120 or something like that. Good luck decideding

yeah i was thinking about the TT- 1 too. I am only looking for a rack that holds 2 trimmers also. I was wondering, does TrimmerTrap only come in red? Cause thats kinda a reason why i dont want TrimmerTrap because my trailer is black and i kinda want the rack to match.

Oh and also, how much was shipping on the TT- 1 it seems like it will be alot since they are so big and heavy to ship in the mail.
thanks!

IMO TrimmerTrap makes the best equipment racking for the industry. I had the TT-2 rack...holds 3 trimmers...heres a pic



I had also used the blower racks for our Echo Blowers, they were nice as well...but sometimes hard to get off the rack. The main idea is to get them off of the bouncing trailer/truck floor. When we had our trimmers on the floor of our enclosed trailer someone always stepped on one bending the shaft. And since we got the racking system there have been no casualties.
