Dutch Clover Hay Making "Picked Up"

Recommended Posts

Decided I best mow the dutch clover off so it and the grass have time to recoupe before freeze-up after being left unmowed for around a month. Sickle mower seemed to have done alright on it today though I can't tell for sure as I haven't cleaned any of it off yet, gonna let it dry a few days. Here's the LL in some of the tallest stuff, about 14 inches.

All mowed

LL in the center circle

For reasons unknown to me the stuff in the center circle was only 6-10 inches tall. Hoping the lawn sweeper can handle picking it up after it's dried some, sure hate to haveta hand rake it all.C After 4 days of laying to dry I got the lawn sweeper out and put it to test. Where the clover was tallest it plugged a few times and the tires would just slide along but all in all it did alright, got 6 loads picked up.

Now to mow it off with the 3314 and have some stripes to enjoy the rest of the yearsm01

Looks like fun, I have a Haban I will be adding to my 3400, looks like it did a great job, you've been a busy guy clearing stumps, and all, I better not let the wife see these pics, that haban's been in storage for a year now! Thanks for the pics from the great north

If I had a rake and a mini baler I would bale it up and sell 'rabbit bales':D As is, hope to pick it up with the lawn sweepper and dump it on a rocky dirt area as it's perannual and I won't have to plow them dang rock for awhile:D I let the clover bloom out this year for a bee hive a friend as set on my place, Bee Food:D

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
