    Check out Jungle Jims, I have the blower pole. Holds 2 blowers works great.

    What about for Redmax EBz8000s? I haven't found a rack that will accomodate their size.

    K&L re the over-achieving 8000, I have the blower mate/Jungle Jims set up, and was a wee bit anxious after purchasing a couple of 8000's only to find they did not fit on my blower mates! However I spoke to/emailed Jennifer (she is evidently the person to speak to, prompt, a real problem solver, courteous, and very concerned that MY 8000s werent willing to hang out on the blower mates, she gets things moving; kudos to Jungle Jims for excellent customer support!) @ Jungle Jims re the problem w/the 8000 and she assured me that she will get their engineers on the case (no time frame givin re fix) so that the 8000's will be able to perch upon the blower mates safely and securely!

    Green touch racks. They have vinyl coating on them to protect your equipment. I love those racks.

    Gridiron is probably the best rack system out of them all. The blower rack can accomadate ANY blower.

    I put mine on the gridiron system but used treated wood for the support system and added a few extras. There is a black bungeee strap at the bottom that is pulled over the gas tank area and the gridiron holds it just fine. I also am a little anal about a 500 dollar blower hanging on the side so I added a hook that I can put a sholder strap thru for added safety if all else fails. I have had it like this for a month and have no problems at all. Man that blower is heavy but I love it.
