Dewalt 20v Blower Wall Mount – Simple DIY Solution

DeWalt blower hanging on mount

I recently purchased a DeWalt 20V MAX cordless blower and found myself not knowing how to neatly hang it out of the way. It was just sitting on my garage floor so I decided it was time to build a simple solution to take care of it. These types of garden tools are sometimes a challenge to store neatly since most of them have a different weight and balance. Hanging it on the hook system I used for my old blower just wasn’t working very well.

I began to look for ways to hang it up but couldn’t find anything that I liked. In the end, I created a simple mount that can be made with just a few pieces of scrap wood. With this mount, the tool sits neatly on the wall out of the way without touching the wall.

It sits flush on the wooden mount without touching any other surface. It’s easy to hang up, secure, and about as cheap as you can get for a DIY tool organizing mount.

To start, you will need only a few pieces of wood. You likely already have these around your workshop or somewhere in your garage. I used the following:

  • 3/4 inch wood (for back) – 9 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • 3/4-inch wood (for hanging blower on) – 1 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • 1/4-inch wood (for the lip to keep the blower from falling off) – 1 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
  • 3/4-inch wood (for support) – 1 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • 1 1/2″ multi-purpose screws (for assembling all pieces)
  • 2 1/2″ multi-purpose screws (for mounting to the wall)

Of course, you’ll also need some basic tools to cut and assemble the pieces. I used a drill, drill driver, miter saw, jigsaw, and a little sandpaper to smooth it up a little bit.

Below you will find the steps that I took to create this easy mounting bracket. You’ll be able to hang your blower up wherever you need it and it will be securely mounted out-of-the-way and easy to grab as you need it.

NOTE: This mount is designed specifically for the DeWalt 20V MAX Cordless Brushless Blower. It may fit other models but you may have to customize it in order for it to work.

Step 1 – Cut the Main Back Plate to Size

The first thing you want to do is cut the main piece of wood that will serve as the back of the mount. This back piece measures in at 9 1/2-inches tall by 8 1/2-inches wide. This will be the main piece of the mount and will allow the blower to sit flush, keeping it off of your wall. It will also hold the other pieces that allow your blower to mount securely.

I used 3/4″ birch plywood that I had laying around my shop but you can use whatever type of wood you wish. This is a simple mount so leftovers around your workshop are ideal for it.

Step 2 – Cut & Install the Support Piece

For the mounting bracket, you will need to cut another piece of three-quarter-inch wood at 1 1/4″ x 3 1/4″. This will be screwed to the backplate and will hold most of the weight of the blower. This is easily installed with some screws which can be drilled through the back or the front, whichever you prefer. I went through the back on mine so you wouldn’t see any screws.

I also used a little wood glue to make sure the support piece was extra secure. This is not necessary but just gives me an extra secure feeling.

The DeWalt 20V MAX Cordless blower with battery only weighs about 7 pounds and 5 1/2 pounds without battery so the weight isn’t too much to bear.

Step 3 – Cut & Install the Support Lip

Once the mounting piece is installed, you will need to add a lip to it so that the blower does not fall off the front. This doesn’t need to be a thick piece of wood–a quarter-inch piece will suffice. In fact, there isn’t enough room for anything greater than about a half-inch to fit inside the handle. This piece is not load-bearing and only keeps your blower from sliding off the front of the mount.

Simply cut it to size and screw it onto the front of the mounting bracket you installed in step two.

Step 4 – Cut & Install the Bottom Support

Once the main support piece has been installed, you can beef up the holding power by adding additional support on the bottom. I like to overdo things so this may not be necessary but I feel better knowing there is some additional holding power.

For this extra support, I cut a piece of wood with the exact measurements of the main support piece. I then screwed it in directly underneath the main piece just to give it a little extra strength. If you use 1 1/2 inch screws, they may go through the back a little. You can cut the tips of the screws off or hammer them flat on the backside.

Step 4 – Install Mount On Wall

Once these brackets are installed onto the wooden piece, you can simply find a stud on your wall and screw the entire bracket to the stud at your desired location and height. The very top of mine is mounted about 84 inches high in my garage which allows me to easily grab it as I need it and put it back when I’m done. It’s easily out of reach but not so far that I can’t easily grab it.

I used 2-1/2 inch screws to mount it to the wall and placed one screw on the top and one on the bottom. It’s solid so I shouldn’t have to worry about it ever falling off.

This simple mount is designed to get the job done without any fancy bells and whistles. It allows you to store your leaf blower close to the wall and it keeps it neat and out of the way. The best part is that it’s cheap to make and requires only a few items that you probably already have lying around. If not, you won’t spend much acquiring the necessary pieces of wood and screws.

It has worked great for me and has allowed me to keep my garage as neat as possible. I like everything in my garage or workshop to have a home and this little mount makes the perfect home for my DeWalt blower.
