Trimmer Plate Stops Grass From Wrapping
“I was cutting grass 12 to 14 in. high, and it would wind up around the shaft,” he recalls. “I had to stop every 3 or 4 ft. to clean it away.”
His solution was to cut a 5-in. dia. disc out of 1/8-in. steel with a hole in the center to match the mounting end of the shaft. He cut slots about halfway to the center and turned them up at the edges.
“When the long grass starts to wind, the slots cut it again,” says Buxengard. “It prevents 99 percent of the grass from winding up on the shaft.”
