#2. cut slot in crate
#3. Attach to truck bed.

Here's another one for a sprayer. I installed a 3/4 tube to hold the sprayer wand.

Bob,
Lesco has a handy dandy sprayer holder that I have been using for about 10 years. I dont have a pic handy, but it fits your/my Lesco, and my Solo sprayer.

Here is another idea...

Get a blower rack and a backpack blower and be much faster. ;) :)

I also have double back-pack blower rack (Green Touch) that carries 2 back-pack blowers.

Did the same thing with a milk crate to hold my blower. Welded a chain on the rail of my triler and run through the handle of the blower and lock. Works great. :)

I've been using them for quite a few years now. At the time I was too cheap to buy a blower rack. Now, I can't see the point in "upgrading". Anyway, I added a chunk of foam to the bottom to make a cushioned ride for the blowers. They seem to be happy with the arrangement!!:D :D

The theft of milk cases is a crime!:D
Be very careful! JK, looks good!

I got mine from a dairy that was bought out by a large corp. They didn't want crates with the old name on them. I may be in the minority here though:D .

Bob,
I, and most of the lco's around here, have our pump up handheld sprayers in a old 5 gallon paint bucket. It helps when you might have a spill and also contains the drip from the sprayer wand tube.
Good Luck

I also use a milk crate for my HH. It is bungy'd down on my trailer. Simple and cheap.

You can buy milk crate at most big stores. I use big ones for my chainsaws. A gallon jug of bar oil and all the tools stay right wright in the crate.
