    Is there anywhere I can BUY one of those cages on the front of trailers for BP blowers and such...I am looking to purchase one as I am not much of a welder. Thanks!

    Like this?
    I got this at my local weld rite dealer, they are out of Ocala I believe, so I am sure there is a place in Orlando to pick one up. This was on my old trailer a few years ago and it was $350 installed then. I am sure with the price of steel lately its probably near $500 now. Well worth every penny though....

    Thanks guys, I am going to look into it...my trailer came with a cage but it was mounted to the bottom of the trailer like a storage box. I am going to see if I can have it mounted on the trailer.

    that is a great idea about the shelf.

    i paid about $500 earlier this year, but it's worth every penny. i protect a couple thousand worth of equipment w/ it.

    if you are primarily thinking of blower storage check out the blower racks that northern tool has. i have 2 blowers and there just wasnt enough room in the cage for my stuff so i added one of these too.

    Found one on TSC, do you guys think this is wide enough to fit an Echo PB-265 L or a future Stihl BP blower?

    they normally only sell 5' cages. would depend on your trailer size.
