    This is our blower holder simple yes and works great, yes you still have to get off the machine to use it but we can all use exercise. Some of you will say you lose the fertilizer tray yes you do but I think 200 Lbs. of fert at a time is plenty,when you have 5 or 6 properties in a row, no need to go back to the truck. Can put the invoices and flags in the tray with the blower.

    I put one of my Stihl BG 85's in the fert tray and point it down and hold it in place with a bungy cord for commercial jobs where I need to do extensive cleanup.

    I have it pointing out the side and down and with the lock on full all I have to do is drive and blow.

    For resis I just load the ZMax and grab the blower as I go to the door with my leave behind stuff.


    Is that a LT Rich Aerator you have?

    bob, you crack me up dude. funny .

    i would think that blower gets rattled around alot and does not run well after a bit, but that is my concern. it always seems the two cycle equipment that is allowed to jossle around more runs worse in my experience

    It's been in that crate for the last four weeks, doesn't really bounce that much blower starts and runs great on first pull. Never had a problem with it but then again it is a Echo and they are bullet proof.

    The blower I use fits nicely in the fert tray so no need to modify it.
