Ok, been bothering me for awhile. With the latest equipment I have, I'm in the process of mounting/attaching everything to the trailer. I have three position 'trimmer' racks on the side of the trailer. Certainly know how and what to use them for.

However, I now have my nice new Shindaiwa Blower.

Where/how do most of you store/transport your blower?

While there is the possiblity of putting it on one of the racks (hook and backpack both would 'marry up'), It has a nice long tube on it that would have to be held down also.

Right now, thinking it needs to go inside the trailer on the floor, attached with strap(s) to keep it from moving around.

Any suggestions/comments and/or pictures would be appreciated.

I have my tie down straps for the big items (and smaller items), and will be installing the two Pro Lockers for the lawn tractor and the walk-behind - this weekend.

Now, back to marketing/advertising.

I put mines on a rack and then put the "trigger" in the strap to hold it down.

Do you have an enclosed or open trailer? Either way, get a dedicated blower rack. Pretty simple.
