  • Draudt
  • I have a F-901 Brush-hog, I believe that is what the tag reads, that I have attached to my 1949 8n. When I mow the field all the clippings pile up on the left side of the cutter and leave a row of clippings behind the mower.
    Shouldn't the clippings come out of the rear of the cutter more evenly?
    And if so, what may cause this to happen?

  • I use someone's newer JD brush hog every now and then, it always leaves all the grass to one side, never really bothered me. But grandad's very old noname brush hog sends it evenly out the back.

  • Thank you for your response. I think why it bothers me so much is because I wait to cut this field and it ends up pretty tall so I almost end up with what looks like rows of hay

  • Just turn around and mow the other direction (CCW).

  • They do that. Centrifugal force. A BrushHog ain't for mowing a fairway or green.

  • I bought a brand spanking new Ford 5' brushhog in the 1970's. I sold it this year. From day one, it always left a pile along the left side.

  • Centrifugal force and rotation of cutters. If you are using it to mow your yard and are concerned with the piles, try going over it twice.
