Yes I saw this but believe it will not fit. It says 170 series but up to 15.1 ft. We measured the body on ours and it is 17 ft. I think this is for an older version.

Ok so I contacted Northern Tool and they do make a tear drop cover that covers up to 18 ft. I ordered it. Takes up to ten days. Will let you know how it fits our 171.

It will fit just fine, many have bought from Northern Tool.  The large one fits all the 17x models and the small one I believe fits the earlier smaller models, some of the 15x ones.

It looks like Amazon and Northern Tool are both selling the same cover.  If you look at the specifications, they both use the same manufacturer item #.

Just to clarify.. the large one will fit all the 17x models EXCEPT the new 178.. it's the same length as a 18x..Wink
