    put the blower rack on the trailer not very impressed. To much swaying back and forth. Do not feel comfortable with my echo 750 on it. Anyone have this issue?

    I installed one on the front of my trailer a few months ago and have had absolutely no problems with it. I have no sway at all.....Are you sure everything is tight? Is it installed close to a welded vertical support? ;)

    Did you cut the yellow plastic off at the base before mounting it? We had our first trailer that did not have that done and they swayed. Once the plastic was cut off at the base it has been solid as a rock. We have 2 blower racks, a 5 trimmer rack, 2 back pack sprayers and 3 tool racks from Greentouch and love them on the open trailer.

    Is it the actual rack that's swaying? Or the blower.

    I've got a 750, and there's a little part that you're supposed to get from Green Touch as well.

    I didn't use that part, just set the blower on the rack and run a bungee cord around it. No problems.

    My rack is in an enclosed trailer, so I don't have to worry about someone just unhooking the cord and taking the blower either.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Yes I did remove the yellow plastic from the base.
    I guess I am going to try to move it to the front of the trailer.

    Mine is on the side at the front and it couldn't be more any better or tighter.
