Can anyone recommend a cover for the snow blower? 1 stage covers seem like they'd be two small. Does it need a two stage cover? I'm keeping it on my deck and want to protect it.

I know this is not really the answer you were looking for, but after recently removing the frozen cover from my bbq grill, I would go with one of those small plastic storage boxes.  Seems it would be a lot easier to open a door/lid than trying to peel frozen "flexible" tarp type cover off of the blower.

Thanks. I thought of putting a plastic storage bin upside down over it while the Ego is folded, but can't find one big enough.  I have a gas two stage and use a vinyl cover with that with no issues. I've ordered both a single stage and two stage cover and will keep the one that fits best and return the other. The Ego is sort of a 'tweener' size, so wasn't sure if a standard one stage cover would be big enough. I'll find out.

Jon, let us know how it works out, and what cover you end up using. Could be very helpful for others searching for the same solution! :-)

I was thinking more like this rather than an upside down storage bin.  But, whatever works for you.

I received the Toro single stage cover. It is a tight fit but I like not having a lot of extra fabric to bungee down (will see if it blows off in the heavy winds we have here). It is extremely well made (I also have the Toro two stage cover on my Toro snowblower). In my opinion, the Toro covers are better than any vendor's covers. Very heavy fabric with a rubberized inside coating.
