Default Enclosed Trailer Racks/Holders

Some time ago a member posted pictures of racks they had inside their enclosed trailer that were really nice, I can't seem to find the thread. What I am looking for is a rack to hold mixing oil, WD40 etc and I recall the rack in the post would be perfect.

Also I am about to order a trimmer rack as the final thing I need, I would prefer one that locks easily.

Also I am cusious abot tools, do you guys carry a tool box with each setup in the event that something brakes?

Appreciate your feedback.

I got that from lowes . I think the name was closet maid .
It has parts to it . You buy the 2 up Things then you can get as many selves that you need . I think the price for what I have with the oil and every thing on it ran me around $25 and the rack that's one piece was around $12( the one that has coffee can on top)and my back pack blower hook is only $2 .

That is great! It's hard for me to see but what is holding up the back pack sprayers?

Cheap, Great looking and Functional, just what I need Thanks a bunch, We do not have a Lowes here however Home Depot, Rona or Kent must have these, really appreciate the info. Luve the Chainsaw holders, would have never thought of that.

Mike, Do you strap your gas can's down? I was thinking of buying some flat steel and just bending in and making a latch to hold them firm.

How do you mark your cans or are you always with the equipment? Some of my gear is diesel, some two strokes and some four, last thing I want is an employee putting the wrong gas in. I thought of placing luggage tags on the cans and use a numbering system that matched the piece of equipment, I bought those Flo & Go nozzles as i find them really slick and although I know the yellow cans are diesel I am concerned a little an employee would take the wrong one.

I thought I should probably put a tool box together for each unit.

When you are at a job site and you take the equipment out that you are going to use, do you lock your trailer back up? I was doing a deck a few years ago in a very good area of the city, we stopped for lunch and went around to the front of the home to eat, 1/2 hour later we went to go back to work around back and most of our tools were gone, I was shocked as we didn't hear or see a thing and were only, maybe 50 feet away so someone was watching.

Also if you looking for racks, i'm ordering these in the spring

I don't tie down the can. I also have never had one jump out or tip over from the little box. I have a can that's has faded over time and that's the one that I used mixed in.

Steve ~~~~(That is great! It's hard for me to see but what is holding up the back pack sprayers?)

Its a bicycle rack that I tried for a line trimmer rack but it bounced all over and you had to tie the trimmer to it every time .
But it worked reak good for the sprayer with a extra hook to hold the top back .
PS I know I need to tie down my gas cans!!!!!
