My plows are stored inside, so, I'd just get the Fisher headgear cover. The blade will get scratched and faded from use anyways.

A tarp is good IF you make an A frame for the tarp so its open at the ends so air can circulate without holding in moisture.






Tying a tarp around the plow is a BAD idea.

Every year is the same thing 1) Car-wash 2) Barn.
Plow never leaves the truck and come Sep I touch up the paint, flush the fluid, and lithium grease on all pivot points.
