    Custom snow thrower rack that I built and then had Line-Xed. It was my best solution for taking a thrower with me for the walks on larger commerical properties. It works out really well.

    I use bungies to hold my 2 blowers in the back of my dump( no tailgate ). They hold tight and are easy to hook and unhook quickly.

    Rack looks well done. Good idea on the line x.Thumbs Up

    Looks good. Where did you get the cover for the spreader?

    The bungies are a fast way to get on and off. It actually holds it very tight to the rack. I had the tap custom made at a shop in Amish Country.

    Nice. Any idea how much it was? I had gotten a price from the mexicans in town but it was about 5x more than I thought it would be

    Right around $75.00. Heavy material with corners built up with extra material and gromits (sp?) about every 2 feet.

    Is it near you where you had it done? I'll pay you a little extra if you had them make a couple more. If it was $75 I'd give you a hundred. I see you can't PM but my email is clearwater1@att.net if you would contact me.

    Look good! I see you go to Terry's T&T. I've been there a couple times, Terry and his son are good guys. Can't remember his kids name though.

    Great idea! How does it effect the pattern when salting, or is it not even noticeable, at any rate nice job. ussmileyflag

    Hey guys... Erb's tarp shop - (330) 893-2562 when you call you will go straight to answering machine for like 4 families and the business. Leave a message for David at the tarp shop. He will call you back same day in the evening. I don't have the address or I would post it. But all i did was measure spreader and send him pics and he made it.

    On the rack I welded in a pice of angle where salt would hit it so that it gets deflected and throws it out better. Pattern wise no change.

    looks good can you put a rubber strip under where it meets the bumper? it will scare ya after seeing it in the spring, scratching the hell out of it with all the dirt and salt?

    I take it off the truck between storms when the blower is not needed. The bumper has Line-X on it as was well.
