    Post the pictures of that equipment that you made yourself because you can't find what you want or just can't justify the cost of, so you just made you own.

    Show off your creative ability!

    Nice, kinda heavy though? Would some type of plastic material be better? (Thinner and lighter) Not taking away from that, I like it a lot.

    Neat idea, how do you like using those bags though, they look pretty skinny and hard to use.

    I built this tow behind mower for taller grass/weedy areas.......can lift it so blades are 6-7 inches off ground. Works pretty good.... 10 hp B&S engine.

    i made the grass/leaf bag based on the bag size(everybody sells em).....the bags hold up well....i made it a little on the heavy side so that the wind won't blow it over(fall time)....i fill it 1/3 then pull out the insert, it holds it's own at that point....made 2 of em.
