Mounting A Push Mower On Side Of Riding Mower
I came up with this method of mounting a push mower on the side of a riding mower while looking for a better way to cut grass on ditch banks and in other difficult areas. It also lets me mow big open areas faster. Two brackets attach permanently to the tractor, one to the frame just ahead of the rear wheel and the other to the drawbar. The push mower has hinging hitch brackets that attach just outside the two wheels on that side. The push mower floats independently. The throttle is within easy reach, attached to the top of the aluminum handle, which I made out of an old lawn chair. The brackets for the push mower are still in place so I can use it normally as a push mower, if needed. (Don Schwab, 4577M-61, Standish, Mich. 48658)
