Backpack blower racks

Hey guys, I just bought a new trailer and am in the process of putting racks on it. I'm solo and on my grass days I carry my shindaiwa t282 trimmer in a single jungle Jim trimmer rack which I absolutely love, and now I'm thinking about a blower rack. I've never had a blower rack on any of my previous trailers. What are y'all's thoughts? Are they worth it? I'm interested in jungle Jim's since their warehouse is right up the street from me, but I'm curious of other brands too. I'd love to hear y'all's input! Thanks!

Haven't used the Jungle Jim's Blower Holder but just got the Green Touch Xtreme Series Backpack Blower Rack http://www.trailerracks.com/XG108.html and love it.

IF you are interested in an extreme blower rack, I have one that I will sell. I bought it a month or so ago and never used it. Its a very large rack and I have no place to mount it on my trailer as I have a box across the front and when mounted on the side rails it sticks out past my fenders. Im going to get a jungle jims rack to hold my 2 redmax 8500s.

The extreme rack is very well made it just wont work for my application. If you are interested message me and I will get a shipping quote.

I'm not necessarily interested in the green touch system. I was just wondering if blower racks are worth the money? I usually put my blower in my truck bed. Just trying to justify the blower rack's worth

Thats what ive been doing but this season I have been filling my bed with debris most days so I dont always have room for the blowers. I think I am going to go with two jungle jims single racks for my trailer. I don't want to risk damaging my blowers by having them in the truck bed between barrels of grass. I wish the green touch one would work for my application because its very well built and would match the trimmer racks I have.

To answer your question, yes I think they are worth the money as they better secure the blower and prevent risk of damage.

Thanks for your advice! I might look more into the jungle Jim's too.
