    Does your mower through it out the side or the rear? I mow our field and would much rather hve something like that than work from the inside and blow it all off the field.

    So you push it from the middle out or use the rake after you mow to pick up the grass? How short are you mowing your field?

    Rack after we mow but only when we need too. Not sure on the height. Maybe @JerryG or @Decal Dennis knows ?

    One of the close to the field members cuts the field once a week. I'm guessing they mow from the middle out the way the cut looks if you stand in the middle of the runway. It's cut at about 1 inch.

    I cut ours about the same length. Can you get me a part number from the rake and where you got it from? I have looked at a few but, they are mainly for leaves and wouldn't work to well on grass clippings.

    It is just a standard yard rake like you get at Sears. Works best if you rake as you mow to get the clippings while they are on top the grass.
