Rotary disc mower
Replacing conventional mower blades with round blade-equipped discs cuts rpm's and horsepower required to operate big mowers, says Donald E. Fraser, Hamilton, New Zealand.
Fraser simply bolted four short blades to the four sides of a metal disc about the same diameter as the length of the blades it replaced. Because of the doubling of the cutting surface, he says, horsepower requirements are reduced and he can use a small utility tractor to run the big 12-ft. mower.
