How to swath tall grass with a lawn mower

The mower is an old, but still sound, Snapper. I chose it years ago because it was a great vacuum and could bag everything on the lawn. At this location, I don’t enjoy lawn maintenance and all I want to do is spread the too-long cuttings.

The chute is made from a recycled ice-cream bucket. Material flies out of the chute at high speed. If you try this, please be careful that the ejecta does not hit anybody or anything vulnerable. (The camera, which is close to stream of material exiting the chute, is on the end of a pole so the cinematographer is not in danger). The wheels of the mower has the deck at a high setting. If the grass is wet, it helps to have the chute-side of the mower over an already-mowed section so that it is easy for the air to mix with the grass.
