I just bought the 21" mower. I don't have a shed, nor can I store the mower inside my home. If I put a tarp or cover on it and bring the batteries inside, is the mower going to be damaged? I live in the Philadelphia area, so we get plenty of rain and snow.

Blair, that's a tricky question.  In theory, yes, you can store the mower outdoors under a tarp (be sure to keep the battery and charger indoors).  We just don't feel comfortable recommending long term storage outside just because of the wear and tear that the elements could put on the mower.  You know the mower folds up to a small compact size?  We're just making sure. :)
