I have a couple of motorcycle covers I got at Big Lots on clearance for $7.99. They work great if you need to leave one outside for a while.OK__I have to report on the little item that I picked up when I bought my XT2.
Got a Cub tractor cover (for cost)---I normally store my unit under an outside carport (but w/ sides almost to ground) on asphalt pavement,
After each use--I clean it good--and then cover w/ the above mentioned item if not going to be used weekly.
This cover fits pretty well--says it fits lawn tractors up to 54",,-of course, not over the two-bin bagger, but always down to the edge off the deck, and part of the wheels. Of course--the front bush guard sticks out ,too. Cover is made of some kind of porous material--heavy made, with elastic drawstring around the bottom. Does the job for me....:fing32:
