I bought the trimmer trap version and it came with a goofy adaptor... I don't want to use it. I could modify the rack itself but don't have time right now. Is there one that works perfectly for this blower? If you have a photo.. please post.

Thanks.

BTW.. if some is interested in the TT BP rack.. make me an offer. It's never been used.

I dont have a picture, but Gridiron makes a nice rack. It holds Two PB 650's and two trimmers on mine. I think I paid like 300 for it.

I was thinking of getting one of those tt's because I found this yesterday. It's the bottom of my BlowerMate. I almost lost my 750 off the front of the trailer.

I have a gridiron rack that I used for a week or so for sale pm me if you want it. I bought it when I bought the trimmer racks, but the blowers just end up on the floor anyways.

Northern Tool as one that should work that is like $34.95. I have the Sthil version and it works well. The Sthil one is made only for BR Models and then they have a different one for the the other blowers.

I have the trimmer trap. I also did not want to put that adapter on my blower. i thought it wou get in the way. I have never even noticed a difference. My vote would be trimmer trap. quick and easy to use.

I had 2 calls on my cell phone from Jennifer at Jungle Jims. I spoke with her and have to admit, that was excellent customer service. I have a new unit on the way. Now if other companies could emulate Jungle Jims interaction with customers!

John.. Thanks for the pics.

What is the other rack used for? What holds the blower in place or what is used to secure it?

Thanks

Water Cooler or you can put other things there like a chain saw Holder or other option.

You hold it down to the trailer with clamps and nuts and bolts. Its easy to lock up too. The blower is helded in by two clamps an the side.

I had my 750 in it. I think it is adjustable to fit almost any blower though. It is one of the best racks I've seen, I'm just too lazy and throw it on the floor right inside the door of the trailer.

What are the Grid Iron racks made of? Can they be welded to the trailer?

2k1.. I'm interested. PM me a price please.

The mounting tabs are steel, the back tube that the tabs mount too is aluminum. How much are these things new?? I don't have any idea how much it is worth?? I think I gave $350 for the 5 position trimmer rack and blower rack and that was cost on them.
