What tool do I need to load a pile of grass clippings (left by scything
the lawn ; you get a pile maybe a foot high and a couple feet wide
running down the left side of a 10' swath you cut across the lawn) onto
a makeshift hay wagon, for carting into the back woods, where a
pile of lawn clippings is growing (how big will it get?)?
I've been using a garden rake, gathering into a huge pile and
then picking up a large armful with rake and remaining hand. But
it takes as long to cart away the grass clippings as it does to scythe
the swath in the first place, using this procedure.
Maybe there's a pitchfork that will work with grass clippings?
(The clippings are typically longer than a lawnmower leaves, but
certainly not hay-length.)
