I remember a post that told how to convert a lawnmower into a chopper for cutting up forage, leaves, etc.. I tried doing a search in the archives, but could find nothing.
Does anyone out there have any hints. Thanks!
I once read an article in either backwoods home or mother earth news about doing this. It looked pretty easy cut a round hole about 4 inches in the mower deck, rivet a piece of metal shaped like a funnel to the hole, feed it with sticks of increasing size until you break something or hurt yourself. Best of luck with it.
Kirk pretty well covers the article as I recall reading it. It was in a magazine, but I can no longer recall which one it was. I converted my previous lawn mower to do this. It works OK for *thin* stuff and things like corn stalks, but don't try to put stick in it thicker than your finger. My brother bent the crankshaft on that one and I haven't done it with the new mower.
