So what mowers have the best chain covers? The stihl is plastic with a metal strip on the bottom edges. Weibang are metal with a thick bit of metal from the same spec of metal as the blade on the corner that gets worn more. Hayter are just plastic and I've seen from my local dealer they are replacing them like mad. NEW 56 pro had a hole big enough for a golf ball to get through and that's only a season, appalling. It should be made so after 2 years off use that's when you want to start thinking about replacing belts and chain covers.

They're all cutting costs where this is concerned.  The Weibang ones used to ware through as they were thin all over, looks like they might have listened at last and beefed it up where needed.  Hayter used to weld a small metal strip to their roller frames just under the chain covers, but no longer do this.  I guess they will sell a lot of covers like they have since the Harrier 480.  ;)
