Packem Trailer Cargo Organizers - PK-6-OP1

Designed for use on your open, flatbed trailer, this all-inclusive rack features holders for your trimmers; backpack blower; spool of trimmer line; and 3- to 5-gallon, round cooler or pesticide sprayer. Three keyed-alike padlocks included.


Features:

  • Base rack holds 3 string trimmers or weed wackers
    • Trimmers sit horizontally in hooks and secure with lockable hasps
    • Pre-drilled holes on towers ease installation (mounting hardware not included)
  • 1 Lockable, backpack blower rack
    • Adapters are required for certain blowers
      • STIHL 420 requires PA-STIHL420
      • STIHL 340, 350, 550 and 600 models require RA-STIHL

  • 1 Trimmer line rack
    • Holds 1 industry-standard, 3- to 5-lb spool of trimmer line
  • 3 Keyed-alike padlocks included to secure trimmers and backpack blower to rack
  • Sturdy steel construction
    • Trimmer rack hooks and additional support bars are rubber padded
  • Gray powder coat finish resists rust
    • Unique hammered pattern adds a touch of style
  • 1-Year warranty


Installation

This sturdy, steel rack mounts securely to the bottom rail of your open utility trailer. Just line up the towers of the base trimmer rack, approximately 3 feet apart, to determine where on your trailer you will need to drill. Then attach the pre-drilled towers with bolts (not included). This rack system is not designed to be welded to your trailer.


Be sure to face the rack toward the outside of the trailer for easy access to your trimmers. This configuration also leaves the bed of your trailer open for lawn mowers or other landscaping equipment.


Trimmer Rack

To use the rack, simply place your trimmers or Weedeaters horizontally in the hooks. The hooks of one of the towers have integrated steel hasps. To secure your trimmers to the rack, just fold the hasps over each trimmer and lock in place with the included padlocks.


Backpack Blower Holder

The backpack blower holder is designed to securely grip your blower at its grab handle. Simply hang your blower from the hook and then fold down the integrated steel arm. Once the arm is properly positioned over the hook, you can lock it in place with one of the included padlocks.


If you have a STIHL 420 backpack blower, you will need to use Pack'Em adapter PA-STIHL420 (sold separately). A different adapter, RA-STIHL, is required if you have a STIHL 350, STIHL 550, STIHL 600, ECHO or RedMax blower.


Cooler Holder

The beverage cooler rack consists of a steel frame that supports the weight of a cooler and two adjustable straps to hold it in place. This rack is designed to hold up to a five-gallon, round cooler or pesticide sprayer.


Trimmer Line Holder

The line holder can hold a three- to five-pound spool of trimmer line. Just slide the spool onto the center rod of the holder and then hook the rod back in place. Now your trimmer line is securely stored and easily accessible for quick, painless unwinding directly from the spool.

Video Transcript for PackEm Rack Installation

Today on our open utility trailer we'll be doing an installation of the Pack' Em Rack for open utility trailers, part number PK-6-OP1. Now this kit holds 3 trimmers, 1 blower, 1 line spool and 1 cooler. Now we'll begin by installing the 2 upright posts of the kit. In this particular case the customer has asked that we mount it on the passenger side of the trailer and towards the front. Now we also found on our particular trailer that the upright does not fit down far enough to line up with the side rail metal so we actually had to drill a couple holes in the wood on the trailer to allow the upright to be pushed down just enough that everything would line up with the metal on the side rails. To do this we went ahead and just used the drill bit after marking our locations and drilled out the wood enough that the side rail would slide down into place.Once we had it slid down into place, we went ahead and used the level to make sure everything was square. Now the mounting locations to mount the 2 upright posts do not come with hardware and you will need to supply this. Next we went ahead and drilled the pilot hole in each of the locations and then went ahead and drilled them out to the proper size. The directions call for a grade A bolt to be used. Now we're going to use a grade A bolt, 2 flat washers, a lock washer and a hex nut at each location. Now on mounting our 2 uprights we want to space them about 3 feet apart, center post to center post. It's best so to go ahead and use your particular trimmer to figure out the exact spacing. Now we're ready to go ahead and begin installing the other items that come with the kit.

Now depending on how big a water cooler you're going to haul, will depend on which location you should mount it. If you're going to use a 3 gallon water cooler or just a 2 1/2 gallon sprayer, you can mount the water cooler up high as per the instructions. If you choose to put a 5 gallon water cooler on it, you need to put it down on the lower location as we did and then you would reverse and put the line spool up high. To install these, you'll just choose the hardware that comes with it which is the hex bolt and a nylon lock nut, will line it up with the 2 pre-drilled holes and go ahead and put the hardware in and tighten it down. Now for the line spool, since we decided to set up our rack as though we'd have a 5 gallon water cooler, we'll go ahead and put it on the top 2 holes on the rack. Again, the hardware comes with the kit. Now for the blower mount, there's two pieces to this. We'll actually mount this one on the rear upright, we'll put the hook section which is the locking hex on the top 2 holes. There's only one bolt on this as the other one a lock goes through the upright and through the locking mechanism itself. Now the bottom section is a curved piece of metal here which will support the back of your blower. We'll put this on the next double hole down on the upright. We'll go ahead and tighten things down. Now let's go ahead and show you how to put things on. You'll take your trimmer and put it about a 45 degree angle so it goes in between the 2 hooks on the back up right here. Then when we close it we can take one of the 4 locks that's supplied with the kit which will lock it into place. Now for the water cooler you just take the 2 cinch straps, open them all the way up, slide your water cooler all the way down against the bottom base plate and go ahead and tighten up your straps. Now for the blower mount, you go ahead and lift up the top of the hook mechanism, go over the handle on your backpack blower, and set it into place.

With it in place you go ahead and put the haz 00:05:01 back down and then put a lock in place keeping the backpack blower securely fastened to your pack and rack. Now we'll go ahead and take it for a ride and show you how everything rides on the trailer. And with that, that will conclude our installation of the Pack' Em Rack for open utility trailers which holds 3 trimmers, 1 blower, 1 line spool and 1 cooler part number PK-6-OP1. .

Product was as described, I wish the part would have come with the needed bolts to attach it to the trailer. etrailer was great to work with and the package shipped quick. 144498


Comments

After receiving the needed parts, all has been well. Only complaint is that its difficult to remove the bottom weedeater or middle weedeater with out removing the top one first.

This product is better than slice bread. This has helped me carry my equipment and not worry of anything getting stolen. I have had some of my equipment stolen while I was mowing. The order came in real quick, out of the box it was so simple to install. I would recommend this to anyone.the only thing that I don't care for is the locks,sometimes the key want go all the way in. 277555

I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of the pack-em rack. We have a small lawn care company and had been carrying all of our trimmers and blower in the back of our truck. Now with the additon of this multi-capable rack, our equipment will be secure and much easier to access. This should help improve productivity and save on wear & tear that was being inflicted by rolling around in the truck. I like the rack because it was very easy to install, although I did have to make new mounting holes to align with our trailer's top rail. Everything is firmly held in place and locked down when we aren't nearby to keep an eye on things. Kudos!!! 224874

I received the PK-6-OP1 weed eater rack for my open trailer within three days after I ordered it. I was shocked on how fast it arrived with the free shipping because most businesses have this option but it takes a week or so. All the contents were in the boxes including directions and they were easy to read. The installation process was easy and I used a couple of extra materials also to install the rack. Overall I was happy with the rack and the ease of installation. 136675

an awesome product for a mowing service and I would highly recommend it for anyone or any company. the best thing about this product is that it keeps all your equipment in one location and not all over your trailer. thanks etrailer for the product and you will be having my service for more products thanks bobby 195073


Comments

Its been a year and its still the best thing to help me with my mowing business. I have sent a few people that way to buy the product after seeing mine and also telling them the price of it. Again thanks so much for checking back with me and for the best equipment out there. Thanks Bobby

The rack fit perfectly onto the trailer but I would recommend getting self-tapping screws so you can bolt it onto the trailer 294916

Great product for the price. Had to use u-bolts cause I have rounded pipe on my trailer and had to make some notches in the wood like in the example video. Only thing I see that might bother me is where the blower is. Only easy way to get it out is if I'm standing on the trailer and my mower isn't on the trailer. Other than that I think this is a great investment. Keeps weedeaters from rolling around in the bed of my truck and looks more professional. Thanks Pack 'em 415108

Amazing quality product at an amazing price.very well made and strong design.super thick coat of paint/sealer on steel with rugged texture and 2 tone color.and comes with 3 locks...I work at a small engines shop and the design of trimmer rack we sell like this is not as sturdy (L bracket instead of U) and cost 259.99 just for the trimmer rack...needless to say...I highly recommend this kit!! 224245

Its Been a year. The rack system has held up great. Locks rusted out but still function and the straps for the coolersprayer rack fell apart from sun rot...but I still recommend this product for its great value!

I'm happy with my packem rack fast shipping and boxed up very well. Easy to mount on trailer I'm happy with it. Only thing negative I can say is every on the rack should be fabricated with thicker steel to make it stronger but for the price its just right and I feel good now I can. Walk away from my trailer with out worrying. Thank you. 361270

so far no issues, except the locks that come with the kit did not hold up in the weather. ive had to buy all new ones this season. which is ok! i bought a better grade of locks. no real issues, im glad i made the purchace, for sure

Here are a few photos. We just installed tonight. Easy to install and flexible on where you want to place items. Haven't used yet but looks like a great investment. We moved the blower rack down which required us to drill one more hole so we could lock the blower on. May be a suggestion. I wanted it lower on the trailer to hopefully eliminate some banging around. Carabiners will work well to hold trimmers on rack if you are not needing to lock during the day. 474522

Product arrived exactly when expected and exactly as described. Haven't had a chance to install yet, but seems good quality. The locks for the rack aren't the best, but they'll suffice. Customer support has been great, they emailed and updated me every step of the way and even emailed to check up on the shipment after it arrived. I didn't have any issues, but if I had I'm sure they would have been resolved. 562719

Easy set up. Was on my trailer within an hour. This is the third set of these racks that I have ordered from etrailer I use them on my commercial trailer and they hold up very well The main thing that I like from this product is using both sides of the racks. Having a blower and cooler on the back side of the trimmer racks cuts down on clutter and maximizes efficiency 562376



- PK-6-OP1

by:


The product works great. The only issue we had was the post twisting on us. We took a piece of all thread and ran it through to top holes and connected the two posts. That stopped the twisting. Other than that, my crews love them and love the availability to lock their weed eater in it with out having to unload all of their tools every evening. 560188

Overall I like the product. It does exactly what I need it to, which is to store and secure my equipment. It was simple to put together and took about 15 minutes. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it only came with 3 locks. When I called customer service I was told that I have to get my own lock for the blower which means I’ll have to have 2 different keys. 500733



- PK-6-OP1

Not what I expected. Had to put bungee cords on blower and water cooler to stop them from bouncing around. Blower is heavy and hard to put on and take off. Over all craftsmanship of racks is very poor. I had to put a couple of support bars going across to help support. Price of racks is an expensive learning experience. I went to another site and ordered another set. The other set I ordered came with all the hardware. FOR SALE: PACEM WEEDEATER RACK VERY CHEAP. Going to give two stars only because they were very fast in getting the order out. 496035
