What do you mean by "you" badcat??

If I brought home another blower, I'd be ducking flying frying pans before getting both feet into the garage!

Actually, that cover doesn't look have bad, as compared to some of the other frankenstein-izations out there.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I have a similar vintage Craftsman and the belt cover is barely hanging in there. Everything else is heavy duty (compared to today's stuff especially) but that beltcover was a bit flimsy from the start.
