I am looking for ideas for a trailer to carry speakers to and from the line. I want to use a trailer to transport 20 speakers - 4 sets..

Anyone have any pictures? I know there some ideas out there!

We hauled speakers with garden trailers for a while, but the trap help kept tipping them over and breaking the plastic speakers. We were losing money fast. We tried bungee cords and we tried a hand truck with a plywood baseplate and bungee cords. We now carry them out by hand. Slower but more secure. Mark

Northern Tool is having a sale on some of their ATV trailers.

Our club modified a small flat cart to hold 20 sets of speakers. Not sure about measurements, but 4 rows built on trailer will hold 5 speakers per row. The bottoms of the speakers slide into the grooves end to end.

We built little carts that hold the whole biz and store them in large rubbermaid yard containers right on the field by the fence. We have skeet overlay, so under the steps to the high house is perfect.

If you must haul them away to another location the garden carts Home Depot or Northern Tool (shown) sells are dandy and can hold more than one system. A smaller club near us uses these with a little modification for stability.

Great ideas! I'm trying to envision a rack that would allow 20 speakers to hang from underneath the speaker.. Some way to keep the speakers from banging into each other.. As some of you have said - speaker damage is costly and no matter how much we preach and supervise the trap help, they still seem to get beat up.

We currently strap them to the scorers chairs and wheel them out as one unit - I'm thinking if I can get two trailers - each one can haul speakers for 4 traps...
