    That looks like a Greentouch.

    Yep I have two of them.. They are Greentouch racks, $89.99 at Lesco..

    Installation is very simple, you just need to cut the vinyl away from the mounting holes, drill some holes in the trailer, put the nuts/bolts in, slide the blower in, put the bar through the holes and lock it up..

    Does come with directions.. Took me about 10 minutes to install.. Can take pictures if you need to see how it looks..

    To answer the rest of your question, they work great. Just make sure your trailer sides are strong enough to take the weight. Mine comes loose every once in a while and the whole thing shakes and bounces around, but all I have to do is re-tighten the nuts and I'm good to go.

    I have 2 of these on my trailer. The things are very nice keeping things looking tidy. Only problem is the hose doesn't always stay locked into the plastic clasp.

    We have 2 of them also. They hold our blowers nice and secure. Make sure to get your own locks though because all green touch locks are keyed alike.

    We used a small section of PVC pipe rather than the supplied tube holder.
