Re: Only way to cut is shoot the grass out in the road
I think if he mowed more often so there wasn't as much clippings to discharge, he could shoot it in the other direction. I put an OCDC lever on my deck so I can lift the chute to mitigate clogging. If/when I mow reverse NASCAR, meaning I discharge onto the yet uncut grass, lifting the chute with the OCDC lever helps.
The roadside out in front of my property has very narrow shoulders and steep banks. If I mow only the shoulder and leave the banks uncut, the grass/weeds on the bank grow up to form a barrier that is hard to discharge against. I have to reach out with my string trimmer to keep them under control. In hindsight I should have gotten the longer straight shaft version.
In that guys video, you can see how much yaw there is when he traverses that slope. He does have the right machine though to do it. I wonder though if he should be running with less air in the tires.
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
