    I have been putting my Echo PB650 into the back of my pickup and chaining it down. I am getting tired of raising it over the side of the truck.

    I am ready to mount on my open trailer. Which mount do you use to lock your Echo PB650 on your trailer? I had my dealer order a Jungle Jim for it, but the locking mount they sent would not work on the PB650.

    We made a call to my dealers distributor and they tryed to make same type mount work on a PB650 they had and then told us...no way it will work, please return.

    Any ideas for me? Thanks. Dj

    I just lay mine down in the front corner of my trailer. Up against the front bulkhead and up against my side gate. A simple rubber bungie straps it fast. Lift and go. Plus its kinda hidden a bit. Not sticking up in view like it would be on a blower mount.

    I may be interested in an inexpensive blower rack mount though.

    Keep the ideas coming.

    Does TrimmerTrap offer anything that'll fit? I REALLY like their trimmer rack, and would think that their blower rack would be just as quick and easy.

    I just put a Trimmer trap mount on my trailer 2 weeks ago.
    When you order the rack tell them you need the conversion kit for the echo and you'll be fine.

    I have a rack for trimmers/blowers but don't always use it, since loading/unloading takes a few extra seconds. I use an old plastic coated security cables from a bicycle that I had as a kid to hold things in place on the trailer. Just use a clip to connect the ends together, and run it through the trailer rail and loop it over the blower after I set it in place. It is coiled so it recoils nicely to hold the blower snugly when you release it. I just pull it out a little and remove the blower in one movement. For extra security I run the cable through the blower support. I carry locks for when I have to leave it unattended, also. You can also use bungee cords, but they're not as reliable.

    I was given the same info. from the trimmertrap sales rep.
    I also just bungee my down in the bed of the trailer. I was concerned about the weight hanging only supported by the upper handle.
