Lawn Mower Covers An Inexpensive Way to Protect Your Expensive Equipment

By Alan Brickman

So you shelled out a nice chunk of change for that fancy lawn mower; it would make sense to protect your investment and make it last as long as you can. To keep your gas or electric lawn mower running smoothly for years to come, you will want to keep it safe while not in use. Lawnmower covers are the cheapest and easiest way to do this.

You can find mower covers in various sizes and shapes, so be sure to look around and find the best match for your particular machine. There are even covers large enough to fit over a tractor, so with a little searching you can find the perfect fit for your mower. If you have a smaller lawn mower, then of course you will want a more compact sized cover. The advantage of these is that with less material, the overall price of the cover will be much cheaper than it would be for a larger cover. Whichever size you get, just make sure that it covers all the right spots in order to keep your machine clean and rust free. If you keep your lawn mower outside, covering up is especially important to protect against animals and damp whether (though the smart thing to do is to at least store in a shed rather than just leave it sitting outside).

Most lawn mower covers are relatively cheap, though the prices do vary depending on the size of cover and where you purchase it. Your best bet is to search around online and find the best deal for your particular size. A standard size cover usually costs around $25 to $35, while a larger one for riding mowers can get up to around $50 to $60. A good tip is to buy your cover at the same time you purchase your mower, usually you can get some type of deal this way.

As mentioned, you can usually find the best deals on lawn mower covers online, though if you’re the type that likes to shop in person, a lot of the smaller hardware stores offer good deals on covers as well. The bigger stores like Lowes or Home Depot usually have a nice selection, though you may find that the prices are a bit higher there than at the smaller stores.
