Side Mount Mowers Get The Job Done Faster
Charles Anderson stops traffic near Sunburg, Minn., when he mows under his mature evergreens. He doesn’t worry about scratching his John Deere riding mower because an inexpensive push mower attached to an 8-ft. 2 by 4 does the mowing.

    “I have a dozen evergreens next to the highway, and with this I can get right under them,” Anderson explains.

    He took the handle off the push mower and mounted the throttle by the motor. Three chains and eye hooks connect the 2 by 4 to the mower. On the riding mower, Anderson used two existing holes to bolt the 2 by 4 to the bumper.

    “I kept it short for easy backup, but I could have used a 9-ft. board,” he says. It doesn’t take long to join the two mowers when he needs to mow under the evergreens about four times a season.
