I was contacted by Steve from Prowrap Trimmer Engine Covers. I checked out his site and thought his product was really neat.
What I like about it is that it's creative. It looks to me they came up with this idea, and decided it was an idea that could sell and they ran with it. Now they have them being sold in stores in Florida.
I would love to learn more about them and how they got started. Maybe in the future Steve will give us some insight.
But check his products out and remember you can do what ever you want to do. Keep dreaming, keep coming up with ideas. You never know when you will hit the big one.
Congratulations to all of you who dream it, build it Gopher it. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

I just visited their web site and thought this was a cool product. I guess I will have to replace my "high priced" walmart bags to these. http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Hey, thanks Team Gopher.
We started really by accident. *We made a cover for our own equipment use and soon friends started asking me to make covers for them. *One day I went to a lawn mower shop and talked with the owner about my engine cover and he expressed and interest...... one thing lead to another and 13 years later, we now sell our engine covers to 14 FL lawn shops. *
I got to tell you, after many failed attempts with the covers, lots prototypes later, we finally found the most durable canvas which is waterproof, stands up to weather, heat, rain and will keep any spills inside the cover and not on your trailers AND is easy to install and remove.
We just added new equipment to our production line and what a time saver.......what took around 3 hours to complete, now only takes 20 min. *It was like having a lawn service with a push mower, then getting a riding ZTR mower! *
We hope that your fellow landscapers on Gopher like them and will send us some feedback on the covers. (any input will be helpful)
We also want to extend to any "Gopher Member" - a discount when they purchase our covers. * $2 OFF on any cover. *Just click on the below link.
Once again, thanks for inviting us to be a part of Gopher's forums and we will answer any questions your members might have.

I ordered one and just got it today......wow! I was using the Chapps covers but this one kicks butt..... easy, easy, easy.
Don't ya just kick yourself sometimes for not getting the equipment that you need and makes your life so much easier?
Keep up the good work guys, I like my cover.

Great story! I think your product is very unique and creative. Do you ever think of other areas you would like to expand into or other products you would like to offer? Or will you stay focused on engine covers?
Also is there any chance of us getting a look at how you go about making these products?
Could you take a picture of your new equipment and post it?
