    it could save you a serious headache if your z catches or fire. I will put one on my trailer. a better bet would to strap it to your mower

    3--one under each back seat, one in the three trailer tool boxes, and none on the Z's.
    If my line trimmer or blower catches fire--throw the damn thing off!! Never EVER had that happen at all!!!!!!
    In our wreck last year, one exploded under the seat and was a terrible mess.......it was secured also. MAde the truck look like a bag of flour was dropped in it!!!!
