    I wanna know what yall do with your blower tubes when your blowers are on the rack...With mine now I have a little square piece of metal on the side of my trailer that I guide the tube into evertime, but its' starting to get in the way of my mower, I was wondering if there is a better way? And one more thing, why do you see guys taking off the last section of the blower tube? It seems to me like you would be losing a lot of power? thanks

    Some guys take a piece of PVC and cut a section out lengthwise. They do so it is just big enough to pop the blower tube in, and it will slide out if pulled on. Myself, my blowers sit on a shelf with the chainsaw and handheld hedgesaw.

    We let em hang and flop seems no matter how you think you get it together you will always go back to slapping on the rack and leaving it.

    I used to let mine just lay in the trailer, and a couple weeks ago the aerater slid back and poked holes in the tube :laugh: ... nothing that duct tape couldn't fix..

    I'm only using the BP for big lots and leaf jobs now since I bought a Stihl handheld blower a couple weeks ago, it cost over $200 but is so nice for just blowing off driveways and stuff.... I like it alot better than the BP's...

    I have an Echo 750 and a blowermate rack. I just swing the tube up behind and use a bungee cord to secure it to the lock.

    Boy, you better try removing it. You'll have way MORE power!! I have the last 2 tubes off of mine, works GREAT, easier to use and handle! Try it.

    I have a green touch rack and it has a tube holder on it. I think the rack was about $89.00
