    I have just the tool for you it is cheap! But you will need a building to keep it in
    -versatile_swather_103_500_larimore_nd_28385793-jpg


    It is a swather. Based on a sickle bar mower mounted in front of a platform with reels to push the grass into the cutter. These old ones have canvas conveyors with wood slats to move all the grass to the center and form a windrow which can be baled or collected with a dump rake. No grass in the pond. The down side is that the platform is 16 feet. Is that a show stopper.

    Do a search here for something called a pine straw rake. You might be able to back down to the pond's edge and pull out the cuttage (is that a word??) into a line, then come back at it parallel to the pond to pull it all into a pile. (then just get out your grapple to pick it all up you know you wanted an excuse to get one anyway.)

    Thanks for the video. This could not come at a better time, since I am thinking about a Rossi sickle bar mower. One of my biggest concerns is the pucker factor, since I'll be mowing around the ponds with a 5 series JD with a cab. It looks like a good mower that does a pretty good job, so it helped me decide that I'll go with the Rossi.
