    Have been considering running the tow strap off the blower ad ive seen a few pro mods doing it. has any one here done it. pros/cons. any bad mishaps? when we tow from the roof we have to mount itbstrap way up high on the golf cart to avoid hitting the injector with the strap and this causes some difficulty with wheel stands esp on slight inclines

    I guess nobody answered as it's in the news section.
    Better rethink this. Mandatory aluminum studs (8) placed in shear ?

    yea i realized i put it in the news section after i posted it if someone could move it thatd be great. the only reason i ask is because ive seen multiple pro mods towing from the blower. just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with it

    We have been pulling from the blower for 3 years now and no problems. I also use it to winch the car in and out of the trailer with ramps.

    I fabricated a stainless 3/8 tube that blots to two of the 3/8 bolts in the front cover.
