    Are any of you that have open trailers using covers for your trimmers, blowers etc. I do not unload my trailer every night, however I do keep everything locked up in the racks. I thought about it today while it was raining. I have around $1500 in trimmers and blowers sitting out in the elements 7 days a week! Just wondering what everyone else does! Thanks!

    I just unload the hand helds every night since i've usually just have 2 trimmers, hedger trimmer and blower. I've looked into those covers but they're a little pricey. I cover the mowers with a tarp when needed. sometimes i just tarp the whole trailer.

    I throw a really large tarp over my trailer which is loooooooooong, but I found this year by mistake that my wheelbarrow fits right over my backpack blower and covers it great in the rain even driving.

    I used to keep mine in the box of my truck, under the bed cover, but got tired of loading and unloading and all the grass clippings in the back of my truck. So I got the aluminum box pictured below on eBay. It's 84" long and holds trimmers, my PAS system and all the attachments and an Edgit I have on one trimmer.

    I store my trailers in my shop every night. When I was solo, I would bring all the equipment in my garage every night.
