I have a 2X2X4' box on the front of the rig, and I was trying to figure out a way to mount them. Let me tell you it works great. What I did is take two pieces of plate steel about six by six inches. Than I welded a piece of round stock on them about .5 in diameter. The piece of round stock was the width of the box. So now you have two pieces of flat metal with rods welded to them perpendicular that are the width of the box. The you mount them on the back of the box at a distance of 1.5 to 2 feet depending on the length of the hand held blower. So that when you go to rack them you place the handle over one rod, and the tube of the blower over the top of the other piece of metal. Now you have a mount for the blowers that they will not fall off, and plenty of free space under them to mount racks for other toos. Sine my box is 2 feet wide I can securely mount two blowers on this rack.
