I was at Princess Auto the other day and they had covers on sale for 20$ so I grabbed one for the 314. It's really dusty in the garage because we live on a dirt road and have a long gravel driveway, so I wanted to cover it up for the winter. I don't have any attachments for it yet so it will probably only see duty to spread some sand this winter.
It was the XL size and just fits the 314 nicely. Heres a couple of photos.

I could use a few of those for my restored tractors. They won't stop 100% of the dust, but sure makes cleanup easier even after months of storage. I wish I could afford 4 or 5 of those!

What is the better material for restored tractors, the covers like those old vintage wheelhorse covers?i think there like a vinyl,or those newer tractor covers that look softer.

I'm so poor I have to wait for a windy day to blow my neighbors BBQ grille cover over on my property so I can get a "new" garden tractor cover!!

Over the years I've picked up several JD garden tractor covers off Ebay. Don't think I've paid more than $20 for any of them, but they don't usually sell that cheap anymore! ~~ grnspot

Checked online prices in the States, and nothing anywhere near that low a price. Guess I'll stick to the old bed sheets my wife saves for me! LOL They don't do too bad. Poke some holes for bungee cords & they do quite well. Never harm the paint either....real soft!

I'm thinking of placing some moth balls in cloth bags under each tractor to deter the pesky mice during winter time. I've never had a bungee cord eaten by mice though. They've never eaten on my sheets either, but they do like to nest in engine shrouds! :mad2::wallbanging:

I couldn't resist it at that price. I think the regular price was 40 or 50$. It was one of their big sale items a month or so ago. They have a lot of good specials in their flyers. I just have a tarp over the MF8 chassis but it doesn't have the body work on it. I'm going to look for the next sale and pick up another one for the 8. It has a bungee cord around the bottom to keep it in tight, has extra width in the middle to accommodate a deck and handles to help install and remove it. I wasn't expecting it to be that nice.

It's a great place. I like their house brand name. To make up for having a wimpy name like Princess Auto the house brand is Power Fist. They also make really high quality and reasonably priced hydraulic hoses while you wait.
