Default Trimmer/Backpack Blower Racks?

Where can I find a good deal on Trimmer/Backpack Blower racks? Looking at jungle jim racks. Seems the reviews are really good from what I can find. I am open to suggestions though.

Have you checked out craigslist or trailer racks on ebay?

Ebay will definitely have them but you might get lucky finding something local on craigslist too.

Keep us posted.

I have checked those sites, and have found a couple good deals. I just don't know what the good brands are, which one are better and why. It's a lot of money to put out for something you won't like, or doesn't work the way you want.

We've heard a lot of positive comments on here about the Jungle Jim racks.

Each manufacturer seems to make them a little different, so I would just check out each of their features and make sure they work along with what you are needing.

I appreciate it. I tried sneaking a peak at a competitors trailer and got the old stink eye. Not sure if it's because I was snooping at his racks, or the fact that 2 of his clients came to me.

we looked into carrying racks and liked the extreme racks setup the best. The systems was well thought out and high quality.

They are really nice. I found them after I ordered the Jungle Jim stuff. I considered canceling my order and going with the extreme stuff but to get the setup I would want it would have cost significantly more than the Jungle Jim stuff. If I ever go to a trailer (I dont want to) I will give the extreme stuff a shot.
