    Hi,
    We are having a tough time trying to locate protective covers that are made to fit over the engines of stringtrimmers. I have seen them around but am unable to find out where I can buy them.
    Also, we started our landscape maintenance/management co. 8 months ago in SC and would appreciate any advise, great marketing ideas, etc from any of you more experienced pros out there.
    Thanks,
    Clint Weimann

    Tried a large PVC pipe? If made properly, the entire trimmer could rest inside one pipe, keeping it out of the weather, maybe put a few holes on the bottom for drainage, cooling, etc. Just cut a pipe in half, install 2 or 3 hinges, a latch, and it should be good to go.
