    You install the cage across the front and just high enough so you tallest mowers front wheels will go under the cage. The cages are usually 2ftx2ft and the width of the trailer. If you are making it custom measure the height of you tallest blower to be sure it will go in. Swing the door down so you can pull out the blower and start it on the door. The door is held by chains.

    My trailer is at the welding shop now to have a cage installed, along with a 6ft ramp, but the cost of the cage is around $400. The size is 2 ft X 2ft X 80 inches.
