A light trim in a light rain, just to keep up with the spring lawn. Swaths are being cut right to left, each outwards in the same direction.

The light work makes possible the 36" blade, just avoiding the windrow from the previous swath, so as not to foul the cutting edge with wet clippings at the start. Then a backtrack pass under that windrow scatters it and makes pickup unnecessary.

Normal heavy cutting would use a 28" blade and alternate directions; and then pick up and cart off the considerable windrow to the back woods.

Heavy cutting is about four times slower than this.

Mowing the lawn would then spread over idle time over several days, a bit at a time.
