I am thinking about buying one of these http://www.sheltersofamerica.com/products.php?id=5 portable barns for storing my Kubota GrandL and Max 6x6 this winter. In the area there can be up to 2-3 feet of snow. Do you guys think this thing will hold it?

Thanks,
Bill

I've been using something similar as a temporary solution for six years. We get more that 2'- 3' of snow. Decent temporary solutions are hard to undo.

Mine is a shelter designed for arctic use with an all season cover on it. It is more slopped than those pictured and the snow tends to slide off. I usually help it by lifting from teh inside or just raking it. I don't let all that much snow build on it so I can't say what a realistic snow load rating might be. The manufacturer should be able to say.

The manufacturer of mine said they used to say the cover was good for 10 years but now they say it's more like seven years--due to increased UV. Maybe these covers are better but maybe the marketing is a bit enthusiastic. ....
