A quick question about trimmer covers

    I have been meaning to buy trimmer covers for a long time, but have never gotten around to it. My main goal is to keep them from getting rain-soaked. I doubt I would ever use them between jobs, so I do not think the heat-liner model would be worth the added expense to me. The cotton-lined ones though, maybe. Here is my question. Like probably 90% of the people out there, occasionally a trimmer will leak fuel, for whatever reason. Would the cotton-lined or non-lined models be adversely affected by a little spill? I am not talking constant exposure, but the occasional leak. Thanks.

    Glad that you are thinking about the Trimmer Covers again. Season's slowing down where one can actually begin to think again period.
    The occasional leak with two cycle mixed gas is not going to be a big issue. What would be a problem is oil leaking onto a cotton liner. The no liner would be no problem as you could easily rinse out the inside and hang it up to dry.
    These covers are designed for open trailer transport and provide full protection to the trimmer, stick edger, power pole saw and some hedge trimmer engines.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours,
