    I was sitting on the front porch looking at my $16000 worth of equipment being poured on this morning and it made me ask, what do others with open trailers do to protect their investment, what do you do to cover your equipment when not in use? Unload and put it in the shed, have a garage, tarp. What do you do?

    All handhelds and pushmower go in shop every night. The Grandstand will stay out overnight on the trailer occasionly during the warmer months. But come mid september on, it goes in the shop every night also.

    Haha! My wife's car sits out in the rain now so my equipment can sleep in the garage!

    On Days that I get in late, and I'm just going out in the morning to mow some more, I normally just cover everything up. But when I'm not going to mow the next day or ove rthe weekend, it all goes in the garage

    We rent a 12' x 40' storage locker and park everything inside when not in use. Its kept out of the elements, wondering eyes are kept off of it and thus the likelihood of theft is kept to a minimum.

    My loving wife has so graciously taken over my garage as her daycare space(she was very persuasive) I think come mid September I am going to rent a 10 x 20 storage shed. Next year I have plans to build a 30 x 36 garage on the lower part of my property, we'll see how bad uncle Sam treats me this year on taxes and go from there.
