    Watching a farm tractor bale silage the other day I thought.. wouldnt it be great if you could get a mower that would bale your clippings if you were cutting long grass with no chance of the clippings being mulched. :D Nice tight shoe-box sized blocks of grass that you could grab instead of double, triple cutting or, raking :p Hey while Im dreaming.. why not be able to fire them toward the truck (or at the slacking employee) Im prob going to get it for this post.. :D No.. im not drinking right now...

    41 views and no posts so I thought I would start the posting but...

    I got nothing.

    Good luck with that!

    Funny idea but the bales that come out of a baler are long cause they are cut at the base (with a sickle) and not chopped up, like a rotary blade would. Maybe a catcher with a compacter then a catapolt might work :)

    Why not hire some goats to snap up the clippings?

    Why not leave the cliping on the ground to decompose?

    When I dump my accelerator it comes out looking like a bale sometimes.

    My walker packs it in good. And I only pick up in the heavy growth period.
    I'd hate to be the guy picking up those bales, haying wasn't fun when I was a youngster, can't think it's any better now.
