Hi, I still haven't figured out how to build a rack for my backpack blowers. Will a cross type frame hold it alright? Can't you buy them pre-made?

I actually bought a couple pre-maid at Home Depot. I wasn't sure how well they would do, but they work quite well and only cost ten bucks each. If there is a Home Depot where you live (or a Lowe's), they have them in the lawn & garden section. Or you can try to make one.

Homer are you talking about wall mount racks? If so, they are the ones you can find at Home Depot. If your talking about trailer racks - They don't have them at my Home Depot. There is a blower rack at www.junglejimsap.com/<p>

HEY THANKS, I do not subscribe to any of the industry magazines because I don't know of any. If you know of any more that lean towards commercial mowing let me in on them. I called the number and have one coming. I do like to read WALKER TALK. It pumps me up sometimes to see others in the industry doing so well, I don't know how much their mower contributes to that but anyway it seems to be good reading material. <p>Thanks again,<p>Homer
