    Hi guys I have a BR 550 on a rack on my open trailer and I have noticed that it jiggles/bumps around alot when driving down the road, because of the advance vibration springs. Is this bad for the blower. Have any of you guys experienced this? Is there anything i can do to stop it, I have stuck a towel in the gap between the gas tank and orange engine cover.

    I have two BR 600's. Bought one at the end of 05, and one in 06. My first one looks beat. But it still runs good as the day i bought it. The guys throw these things around, and I can't count the times that I have just put it in the bed and not tied it down, rolling all around the back. They are tough units. A little vibration will not affect your blower.

    Be sure to check that none of the rubber shock absorbers have fallen out. This happens from time to time.

    Anything will last as good as you treat it. It wouldnt hurt to fix the shaking.
