I bought this on sale from tractor supply to keep them out of the winter, and to protect them from weathering. The collection is much to nice to have them under tarps...and this is the next best thing to their own garage...

They've had one up for about a year at tractor supply ( this is in Michigan) and keep merchandise in there...from what I understand the key is to 'keep it tight'... and this one is 13x20x12 so rough estimate is 12 small wheelers, and I have about 6 of the big wheels so I am gonna cut it close, and if I have to tarp one or 2 that is much better than the entire collection...

john... it is in Monroe...the Tractor supply that has it up is in Dundee right across the street from Cabellas, the guy told me they expect it to last 2 years, and a replacement cover is about 60% of the original cost...

The thing that interested me is the 'peak' this way it will not allow a significant amount of snow to build up...then in the summer to protect it I am going to get a military camo tarp the ones with the holes in it to protect it from the sun...plus I may silicone it just before the snow season starts...So I am going to do what I can to make it last as long as possible...

Thanks for the post NutCASE. It gives us one more option for expanding shelter area for our collection this year. Also thank you for the pictures.

No problem guys...and I did get my snow caster rebuilt, but still no 'drive chain' on it...so no pics yet, but it did turn out great. We still have a 'steel' structure to build for some of the 'other tractors' and to move some from the shop to the new building...so the weekends are busy so very busy as winter approaches...

Nice shelter. Sounds like you have a good plan to make it last a bit longer. Good luck with it and the tractors.
