Loader-Mounted Mower Makes Roadside Trimming Easy
Mowing steep roadsides is not a problem for James Rohr, Navarre, Ohio, who made a side-mount mower hitch that carries a 22-in. wide push mower about 10 ft. out to the side of the bucket on his loader tractor.
  Its simple to use and results in a nice, even cut, he says. I use it to mow the steep banks along a road next to my property. Using the loader I can see what Im doing without having to turn around. I can raise or lower the loader and also tilt it up or down to adjust the position of the mower.
  He left the handle on the mower and attached metal plates to the front and back of the deck. Chains run from the plates up to a short crossbar on the end of the telescoping pipe. The base of the pipe fits over one of the bale spears on the loader and it rests on top of another one. The chains attached to the mower deck allow it to roll easily over uneven ground.
  Ive been using this method to mow roadsides for more than 13 years and I cant think of any way to improve it, says Rohr. I can set it up for use in only about 7 min.
