 To cover or not to cover?

We just ordered an orange 2910 and a 1670. Even though the tractors and equipment sit outside at the dealer's, I want to keep them covered/protected from the elements. It could be 3 to 6 months before I can build the garage. Does anyone see anything wrong with covering them with a plastic tarp? I thought I read somewhere that condensation from the tarp might be a problem then leaving them uncovered!

Any thoughts...?

Thanks - Foghorn

Tarps aren't too bad, especially if they don't go down to the ground. Special covers are made for some tractors but they are pricey. My 6-month solution (supposedly over one winter) was a 14' x 25' arctic shelter with an all weather cover. That temporary solution has been in place for 5-years so I guess it worked out OK or maybe it says something about me and my priorities.

My tractor does spend some summers unsheltered at our camp and doesn't seem the worse for wear. I just put a juice can over the exhaust, tip up the seat and hold it forward with a bungee cord. To me, having some shelter and lighting for working on the tractor is more important than keeping it out of the weather. I'd go for something that both the tractor and I could get under. I think I'm less weatherproof than most tractors and I also complain about it a lot more.

I purchased a new Kubota in June and am in the process of building my barn right now. So for temporary storage I strong a tarp up between a few trees. It has worked out well because it keeps the rain off but allows plenty of air circulation. The tractor is always bone dry when I go out to use it.

I got one of these for $99 and although it is not the highest quality shelter in the world; it has been up all summer and has held up well. It can support a light snow load with a bit of support on the center pole. Might be worth it for a temporary shelter. It does completely enclose the equipment. I can put my 4410 in it and still have room for a small tractor just barely. The support ropes did not last long as the sun deteriorated the rope material and they crumbled. Not bad for an EL CHEAPO.
