Generic Covers

Depending on what you are looking for in a generator cover to protect your generator you will be able to find one that both fits your generator as well as suits your needs. Sometimes the owners of the generator do not have space in their garage to keep the generator when not in use and have to leave it in the yard. You can also find generator covers with camouflage print on them.

Some of these owners do not like to advertise that they have an expensive generator in the yard and want a cover for it that does not have any brand name on it or a cover with camouflage print to make it look like just another object in the yard. Getting a generic cover which has no name on it or getting a cover with camouflage print helps these people disguise their generator.

Here are several Generic Covers to consider:

Generator Cover Dimensions

Since the generic generator covers come in different materials, dimensions and prices, when you look for one to fit your generator, you will need to see that its dimensions suit your generator. Sometimes you will not be able to find a perfect match and need to go with a bigger size, in doing this you may need to use a tie rope to ensure it stays in place if exposed to the elements.

Cover Materials

Also inspect the material and check to see that it is made up of water resistance material and that the cover would be able to withstand the sun, rain and snow and protect your generator. Some of the generator covers are made of materials that would not last for long exposed to the weather.

Specialty Covers

Most of the generators are not designed to be run in rain or snow as the wet conditions could electrocute the operator or the wet conditions could damage the generator. There is a generator cover called Gen Tent which is made in the USA that fits over the generator like a canopy and protects the generator from rain and snow. This allows you to use the generator in the open even with wet weather conditions.
