We're starting to do leaf clean-ups. I have the blowers in the back of my pick-up truck. No matter what I do, I can't secure my Little Wonder blower. With the three wheels it keeps tipping. Any tried and true methods for keeping it in place? Thanks in advance. Matt

I dont have a little wonder, at least the kind your talking about, but I do have I-bolts attached to my tool box that have come in real handy for securing other unweildy items such as spreaders, aerators etc. The I-bolts are on either side of my tool box. I just push whatever I want to secure against the toolbox and thread a ratchet strap through the bolts and around whatever it is that Im trying to tie down. Works great for me.

when you load the machine, have the wheels go from left to right, as opposed from front to back of the truck. then use a small 1" ratchet strap and use the hooks in your bed or the stake pockets and again use 2 points to hold it in place.

Park your ZTR up against it and jam it into the frame of the trailer......It won't go anywhere:D :D (don't forget to set the parking brake);)

I've got ours in an enclosed trailer ... it sits under the shelves at the front of the trailer, with the front wheel being strapped down by a ratcheting tie-down.

I'll try the 2 ratchet straps in the truck. When I'm mowing I have the blower secured on the trailer. The problem is when I'm doing leaves and I only have the blowers. I just use my pickup. It seems kinda silly to haul one walkbehind blower on a 14' trailer. I have the backpack and other stuff in the bed. Thanks for the responses. Matt

The jungle jims work great for the trailer but do you mount them in the bed of your truck? Thanks Matt
