This product was perfect for my 4x6 utility trailer. I own a lawn care service in Shawnee, Kansas this is solely owned and operated by me which is why I wanted the single rack (single racks aren't very popular, most usually come with racks for 2-3 trimmers). This product was just exactly what I was looking for and wanted for my trimmer and it looks great on the trailer. My trimmer fits perfectly in the rack. I have already had several people ask me where I got it and I proudly say everytime - "I got it from Etrailer.com."

Does the trimmer spin when locked in place? Thanks!

I have a RedMax 2460TS trimmer and decided to mount the posts just a little bit over 3’ (center of pole to center of pole) and it seems to ride well. It does bounce, but that is to be expected with any sort of rack. I will be upgrading my locks to a more substantial brand and matching it up to my blower rack. I mounted it with hex bolts, flat washers, locking washers and locking nylon nuts and the rack is as sturdy as it can be. The only addition I will be making is adding some foam tape on the inside of the locking mechanism around the handle to apply more pressure and prevent the trimmer from moving and causing damage to the throttle trigger. For the price and ease of installation you can’t beat it. I also like the option of adding an additional level on to accommodate other equipment, and will be doing so very soon. Shipping was extremely fast and everything arrived as promised.

I didn't use your product as originally designed by your guys but I see a market for you to enter if you like how I have used it. It worked perfect for what I wanted I did end up painting them flat black to match everything else so maybe an option of just ordering a primer option as well for the people that want to paint them to match trailers or anything else. thanks and I will be using your products in the future.

That is a nice solution. I can see a lot of groundskeepers and golf courses using a set up like this. Thanks for sharing the photos!

This product is great and takes a beating! I have put mine through the ringer and they still work great. Only recommendation I would have is a softer plastic where the metal frame of the weedeater seats. Rubs the metal raw. But again I run my trailers 10 hours a day. I would recommend these over any other out there! I have bought 4 of them. I have even bounced one off the road at 30 Miles per hour! Still works. Hands down great product. Built strong and for the working man. I buy alot of stuff from you guys and had no issues. Thanks for the good products. I also live in the Northeast. This product stands up to the rough winter as well. Thanks again!

Photos of installed Packem Trimmer Rack - Open Trailers - 1 Trimmer. Super satisfied and happy with the purchase. I would recommend the rack for anyone who needs to secure a weed trimmer out of their way. It is very secure once installed and the added bonus of being able to lock it is great. Additionally, I highly recommend etrailer for online shopping. My experience was very smooth, etrailer kept me up to date with several emails on the order and tracking information.

This rack was the finishing touch on my trailer. I was worried about whether or not the wood siding would impede the trimmer, but if it is mounted to the far outside of the rail, it clears the vertical plane of the wood and is not an issue. I also like the fact that the rack is able to accommodate an expansion, so as to add another trimmer down the line, if needed. Well worth the price. Also, shipping was fast and order communication was excellent. Only thing I would recommend, is the option to buy the bolts and even possibly a metal drill bit so customers do not have to make a separate trip to the hardware store.

Very good service. The bracket will help me hold my trimmer from falling off my trailer. The bracket looks very solid.

I'm a homeowner who takes care of a lawn at another house I own - I bought this to use on my trailer because I got tired of having the trimmer rolling around in the back of a pickup when I trailered my mower. This trimmer rack is extremely well made with good welds and a hard coating finish - it should last for a long time. I purchased Grade 8 hardware in order to install (one suggestion - raise the cost a couple of dollars and include the bolts/washers/nuts too) and it was on the trailer in about 15 minutes. It does include a lock and three keys which a positive. One advantage of this model is that it can be expanded to a double rack if needed - that's a bonus for a homeowner who may add another trimmer or edger.


Comments
Over the past year the trimmer rack has worked great but because of our frequent Florida rains, the furnished padlock needed to be replaced. Other than that, no problems.

works great - instructions should have included that the part that hold the trimmer end should always be to the right of the part that holds the motor end. Shipped Timely - received as scheduled

Bought 2 sets of racks and just installed them today..... Easy installation once you buy the nuts & bolts. I would rather have the hardware come with the racks instead of the locks. I did add spring loaded hooks to the latch so I don't have to mess with the locks. Haven't actually used them in the field, but they will solve the problem of having the trimmers lying on the trailer floor and moving them around everytime I have to unload the equipment. Bought a new truck and didn't want to haul them in the bed anymore. The racks seem to be solid, exactly what I was looking for & I 'm sure they'll do the job that I bought them for! I really don't see anything negative about this product so far............


Comments
Its been about a year since I added the racks to my trailer. They have certainly made life easier! Still no negatives, great decision to buy them, and they do exactly what I hoped they would do!I highly recommend them!

Good ,neat quality construction Perfect for what I needed.I started to fab one myself,but for that price you wouldn't come out any better if you had to buy the steel.And defiantly you can't match the finish.

Haven't seen how it will perform under regular use but instillation and fit and finish has been nice so far. The one thing I would like to see added is a piece of rubber around the locking arm to hold the trimmer more securely. Very satisfied with eTrailer. Quick processing, same day shipping, and prompt/detailed tracking information.

Still holding up perfectly. Will buy their dual trimmer rack. In the future if the need arises.

I received this product in a good timely manner. (4 days) This product is a very good idea but I believe it needs to be 6 to 8 inches higher. If you have a weedeater with a curved bottom end on it, it will not fit with the guard. Mine keeps hitting my utility rail. Also this product does not come with mounting hardware. It would be a great idea if they would start shipping it with the hardware. My weedeater also does turn in it when I'm going down the road so an option of having some sort of rubber strap or something to keep it from twisting would be a good idea. But other than that this product does serve the purpose I need it to and that is to keep it from rolling around in the bed of my truck.

The same, it serves its purpose!

This trimmer rack is made of heavy gauge metal. It was easy to install. It was not shipped with bolts to attach it to the trailer; however, I have a tube trailer instead of angle iron so i would have had to purchase different bolts regardless. Trimmer cant fall out during transport. overall I am fully satisfied.


Comments
This trimmer rack is not for me. I drive down bumpy roads sometimes especially when on gravel and my trimmer shakes violently. I have had to replace two trimmers since using the rack. 1st time i was cutting grass and the motor fell of the trimmer and the second time i was going up my gravel driveway and the shaft broke on the new power head that i bought to replace the other one. I think that the rack should hold the trimmer more firmly. If you do not drive on bumpy roads it perfect for you however, if you do use bumpy road you should reconsider. I will be selling mine.

Well built. Only complaint is no pad for for trimmer handle to sit in. I made sure with a rubber pad I put in. Otherwise well built and I like them.


Comments
Both products are still in use. They’re on my small trailer, and I haul my lawn mower or other equipment at least once a week. Both the pin with the wonderful built in lanyard and the weedwaxker stand are holding up nicely. I am just now seeing a little rust on the holder, where it rubs the metal trailer. I am planning on taking it off and re painting it. Over all, very happy with my products.

this product didn't work out for us because we're on rough roads on farms, going down pivot roads with deep wheel tracks all day. when we did this we realized quickly that it was too rough on our weed eaters when they were in your trimmer racks. I've been thinking of cutting some type of rubber or padding to go inside the PK-65 where the weed eater would make contact. I think this product would work good for trailers and trucks that were on smooth roads all the time or most of the time, we're just not.

Very satisfied with my purchase. The racks perform very well under harsh driving conditions. I was nervouse at first but I now feel very comfortable during transportation. My favorite feature is being able to lock both my stihl timmer and edger. I replaced the two provide locks with Brinks pad locks, just for my peace of mind. Living in south florida if you don't properly secure your equipment it will walk away the second you turn your head. Over all fantastic experience, shopping, shipping, and the fallow up by George J. .

Perfect fit. I had it installed in about 5 minutes. Holds my trimmer perfectly, and though I have not road tested it yet, it has the feel of holding it nice and firm while driving.



- PK-6S
by:

Easy install. Nice finish. Doesn’t hold the trimmer as securely as I had hoped. Trimmer bounces around a lot. Also the way the clasp is padded it turns my trimmer away from straight up which then causes the shield to hit trailer which will intimately scar trailer or break trimmer. Need to do some post install modifications
