Ditch embankment mower

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple of photos of my ditch mower. The state thinks I need a canyon for a ditch, so after a year of weed eater tourture, I decided that there had to be a better way. I just took an old lawnboy and made a new aluminum deck with open ends,

then made a frame and arms from square tubing. A harbor freight winch raises and lowers the arms with the control switch

incorporated into the tractors motion lever. On the right side of the tractor, there is a car battery, onboard charger, and 200

pounds of steel which all serves as a counterweight.

This was the sixth year I've used it and have had really good luck so far. The only thing I want to change is to make the unit quick tach so the tractor could be used for other things.
