    Anyone using those covers I seen some were for their string trimmer? We use a open trailer and a Jim's trimmer rack. Want to protect our investment in bad weather. Also had a Mud Dobber try to build himself a new home in the exhaust port of my Tanaka trimmer. Can't remember the name of who makes the covers.

    Looking for weather protection? Try a plastic grocery bag you can use a rubber band to seal the open end or just tie the handles of the bag together - can't beat the price...

    PR FECT - just visited "wechapps" (first time) and was impressed with the range of goodies they have available I have done most of my catalog shopping through "A M Leonard" but that is now subject to change.. Nice Covers..

    My covers look kind of scrubby, but work well enough, cut off drywall buckets and a bungy cord. The powerhead stays dry, but I'm sure it won't keep out wasps!

    I like that idea! I put my trimmers in the bed of my truck ( with a cap) and they tend to slide around a bit. I read your post and mounted two drywall buckets in the back for the trimmers to slide into! Thanks!
