I just purchased my second Classic Accessories lawnmower cover. My lawnmower is stored outdoors year-round in the mid-east. The first cover lasted over 5 years and finally needed replacement due to exposure to the elements. The new one has better elastic and the same great quality. This cover has protected my lawnmower through hurricanes, tropical storms, noreaster blizzards, hail, full sun, and high humidity and my lawnmower starts each spring with 1-2 pulls. This is a definite "must purchase" if you are looking for a high quality lawnmower cover.
