Your lawn is a sacred place. You play with your kids there. Maybe you chip whiffle balls when you can’t make it to the range. It’s soft. Luxurious. And always the right length because you mow it weekly. Sometimes even twice a week.
Your lawn mower may be the third-most expensive piece of machinery you own, after your cars. Or, perhaps, your small lawn only needs a push mower. At $200 each, however, it’s not a negligible expense. Which is why we at CoverBonanza recommend covering your lawn mower and protecting it from the elements. Lawn mower covers are actually pretty cheap. A push mower cover will run you about $30, including freight. If you have a riding mower, whether it’s a zero-turn mower cover you’re looking for or a standard fixed axle cover, there are usually deals to be had. If you can deal with a logo not matching your machine, many manufacturers will have leftover brand-specific licensed covers they’re trying to get rid of. The Cub Cadet and Craftsman models are great examples of this on my site. Both are $30 or less compared to at least $40 for a generic off-the-shelf model.
Keep your lawn mower in great shape with a cover. You’ll be rewarded with a great-looking machine and many trouble-free years of operation.
