I built this mower last year, tried it in the vacant lot next door a bit....seemed to work OK....

Last night a lady called me up, wanting me to mow a yard that she is going to rent.....It has been neglected bigtime for the last few years.......I said I would have a go at it this morning. Some of the weeds are like tree stumps.....stalks a good inch thick.....I should have taken some pics, but never thought of it......Took 4 hrs, bit got it done....Did a decent job considering what I had to deal with.....

I towed the mower behind my MF10.....had the deck on the highest position, set the tow behind mower lower for a 2nd cut......all on one pass.......Only thing I need to change, is the tow bar is too short....on a sharp turn, the back tire hits it......

thats a nice set up. I have been wanting to build something like this that can also be offset to cover more ground per lap.

Glad to hear it worked good.

What size motor do you have on it?

Nice work! I thought about trying to get two mowers to hang off of the sides of the tractor like a bat wing and go to town!

If you are going to change the tow bar anyway it would be really sweet if you can lock it off to the side at the mower or have it straight behind. That would make for a really handy setup. Great job on the mower :thumbs:

Messed around with this today....Built an adjustable bar to tow the mower off to the side.....tried it out, need to work out a few minor bugs......a bit more support for the bar.
