At first I thought it was one of those Radio Controlled Flying Mowers.

We NEED more People like that in this World. “I can’t do what!!??” “You think so!” “Get out of my way and Just watch me!”

Mike,

Thanks for sharing the New ’ Plywood & Decker’ electric mower, “Now that’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are”.

Great minds think alike eh? Yes I’m proud to say this is mine, after the shroud and bracket broke and numerous times of getting slapped in the face with grass and having to brush it off my back and shoulders I got on line looking for a replacement, looking and looking…. and then if hit me which led to what you see in the photos below :) Several things came from this, safety, protection, mulcher and no more getting grass in the face. :)

Hi Blackie,
I have the same problem with my mower. I was going to take a piece of sheet metal and rivet it. Your way looks even better. Looks like it’s open on the front side? Is that correct? Thanks.

Mike, I think that thing is going to need dust collection. Here… I fixed it for you.

mike, I don’t think that is going too far at all…. unless, of course, there is a wooden blade under that mower.
That just woodn’t be right.

Charlie beat me to it…

“All you need now, is Dust Control!” LOL

What motor is that OFF of? 3,450 RPM? HP?

Looks like you made the wheels too!
Laminated circles of plywood?

COOL Mower!!

This really made me laugh. My wife’s Dad has always been a woodwork teacher. I’ve often heard how embarrassed she was as a child riding a bicycle with plywood forks in the seventies.

@ CharlieM1958
Mike shouldn’t that be a grass catcher instead of a dust collector :)
