Popup drain emitters keep getting damaged by mower

I have several of these in my new yard. They are in some inconvenient spots and I keep damaging them.

I can't remember if it were my lawn tractor, push mower, or weed eater that did the damage. (I have a knack for blacking out bad things lol).

Are there models which are tougher out there or do I have to remove them each time I do the lawn?

Tired of seeing green junk in my yard.

I absolutely hate pop-up drain emitters. They are fragile and cause clogs. If possible I would re-route your drain lines so they can simply pour out into daylight and avoid the pop-up emitter problem altogether. If you've just gotta have it then I would get rid of the pop-up emitter and have a simple grate that the water can rise up out of.
