I just recently purchased a Blower Mate by Jungle Jim for my Stihl blower which I also bought the adapter for it. The problem I have is that the Stihl blower isn't as sturdy/stable as I would like it. Here is the email I got from Jungle Jim: Shawn, Hi. Hope you are having a good one. Your blower will be fine as long as you mount the Blower Mate facing into the wind. It will not require additional support. I apologize that you are unhappy with that. It will do fine though If you have any other questions or need further explanation, just let me know. Have a great weekend. Which was a reply from this: I just recently purchased the Blower Mate and the adapter for my Stihl back blower and was wondering what you recommend to use to strap the blower to the Blower Mate. A bungee cord? How safe is that. One thing I do not like is the fact that there is no support on the bottom of the Blower Mate for the back blower. Last year I bought Green Touch's back blower and liked it very much but I bought Jungle Jim's Blower Mate because it matched the color of my trimmer rack - purely cosmetic. What do any of you use to strap your blower to the Blower Mate. I have a Shindaiwa EB630 and face the same problem.
