yeah, its only a small 5x8 but I should be getting a pretty good deal on it as its pratically new. It will work great for hauling mulch topsoil stone. And if I find a different dump place I could haul brush with it too

There's something about having a back pack blower hanging off the side of my trailer, I wouldn't like that, that's like holding $500 out the window going down the highway.

I either wedge mine between something (which you're not suppose to do) or most of the time I lay it down in my bed which has a cover.

Ya I don't know how you guys feel comfortable with these blower racks, they do not look very secure. In my opinion every landscaper should have a cage on the front of their trailer, it is the most versatile "rack" there is. You can put blowers, trimmers, hedge clippers, shovels, etc. Just my opinion.
