    I brought my wife with me today since we only had a four yards then we were going to run errands. We are driving down a high dollar street. The most expensive and best known street in our town. Multimillion dollar homes. So I whip around a curve and there is a guy mowing this yard with 22" mowers. I guess he was solo because i didnt see anyone else. The 22" mowers isnt the funny thing because thats how i started out. The funny thing is he had one in each hand. I had to do a double take and try to take in the whole scene as he was turning. I did see though there was a stripe between the two mowers that had not been cut. They were also two different kinds of mowers. I should have turned around but decided i would see it on my way back but he was gone.

    Around here, that would be a redneck 44" walk behind!! LOL..I would have had to stop and ask him exactly what the hell he was doing, and to show me the finer points of 'rasslin 2 murrays 'round tha yard..lol BTW-did he have a half lit cigarette hanging off his lower lip?? hahaha :p

    Actually, as I think of it, it's a wonder that someone has not fabricated a bracket type thing that you could hook two mowers up in front of one other, and have them overlap just a bit. like in a V pattern. With one self propelled, it could push (or atleast assist) the other two. If they were all self propelled, then you could have a seperate controller coming back to the middle mower to squeeze the handles to help turn. Just an idea.

    Wasn't there someone on this site that operated this way? I remember something like it. Twotoros maybe?

    Hey Joe, if you could use caster wheels on all the decks, it would really help with cornering. You could create your own gang mower out of old 21's really inexpensively.Now, let's see if we can get Billy in Chicago to rig up a prototype.. :drinkup:

    Sounds like a job for BHB (frankenscagmachine). I would buy a bracket if someone made it. Would be nice for gates under 36".

    I havn't been on Lawnsite long, but there is a large company in my market that does that with 2 21 inch toros, and sometimes we inherit a worker that worked for him & it is hard to keep them from doing that. When a customer calls to tell us, it really makes us look bad!

    What a great Idea. with the high cost of commercial mowers, I can just bolt two Murrays together and underbid the competition. Also,the duel discharge of the clippings would look awesome as I stroll behind.

    why stop there??? Just tie four of em' together... and push em' with an 8ft' 2x4 that stretches across them. 84" cut.... would take you no time at all.
