Lawn Mower Windrow Attachment"Grass baggers are a time consuming nuisance," says Harold Hlavka, of Lester Prairie, Minn., who rigged his tractor riding mower with a windrowing attachment that replaces the bagger.
"I've got a big lawn and, usually, only about a third of it produces heavy enough growth to warrant removing the clippings. To collect them, I use the attachment (made of wood) to bring several swaths together into a single, thick windrow that's easy to rake up and remove. In light grass, I simply raise the windrowing attachment so it's inoperative and out of the way," says Hlavka, who would like to compare notes with manufacturers interested in his invention.
