myoder, is it an optical illusion or is the shaft bent on that power broom (between the motor and handgrip area)?

And that's a pretty clever way to keep the hand tools, nice and simple.

Thanks,
No it is not an illusion, the shaft is bent... I had it in my pickup on an angle and had a skid of hydroseed mulch loaded and did not realize that the head of the powerbroom got caught on the wheelwell and tweaked it... It still works fine but I need to bend it back.

myoder, for the backpacks what about doing something similar to what you did for the handheld blower there? A hook on a 2x4 frame. You could hook the top of the blower frame. Maybe use bungees to secure it to the wall so it doesn't bounce around, Plus the bungee could hold the tube against the wall too. Just like your hand tools.

If you wanted more support for them then just the hook, you could put a wood shelf right under the backpacks too. A shelf running from one side of the 2x4 frame to the other.

Good luck.

Go-getter stole my thunder! I too was going to suggest something similar to what you have going on w/ the hh blower and hedge trimmer. Nice organized set up!
