Like most members on this site, I have livestock and a garden, so I'm too busy to pick up grass clippings...

I plan on building a mini forage harvester so I can cut grass and feed chickens at the same time...

I will post build pics, once I gather all the stuff I need... All I need is a push mower and possibly some pvc pipe...

Any ideas for paint colours? I'm thinking new holland implement red and yellow

I think it is suppose to represent your brand.   :smilewink:

I did paint my Fordson and it is Ford blue and Ford light grey. As in my Avatar.

I hope it is something that can be built easily, if so I am going to follow this very close. Something to help feed cows, horses and chickens is right up my alley.

You only should need self tapping screws pvc pipe a plastic discharge thing off a snowblower a push mower with safety equipment removed and some material to make a drawbar

It's not made to be pretty, I don't do pretty.

Update...

Kinda stalled, I'm fairly broke, so I can't buy the push mower for this project...

Wait, I have 200 pounds of change weighing down my pants, maybe that will help😂
