    Im curious how you guys carry your blowers if you have a salter in the bed? if someone could give me any information possible i would appreciate it very much. been trying to figure out myself what to do just cant really come up with anything. I have a 8 foot box so maybe go with a smaller salter?

    Tie it to the salter.
    Have someone else carry it around
    Get a smaller salter
    put it in the cab of the truck

    snow blower etc.

    Depending on your salter can you tie down with bungee cord to hold it on top of the salter?

    If you have a screen over the salter you can tie down to the screen, just be sure to tie it down around the wheels and then the handle(wrap it a couple of times) of the blower(if you have the clearance around the wheels) as this area will not allow much slippage versus just across the engine cover.

    Is your hitch at all exposed? one of those carry all things that slip into the square receivers would work nicely as you can carry fuel and the blower both.

    Put it in the salter!!! Had an older Toro power curve that rode in the salter for years, in fact the toro outlasted the salter. Just try not to fill the salter with the Toro inside!!!
