Development of a Blade Guard for MowingTransactions of the ASAE
Publication VersionPublished Version
AbstractAn analysis of rotary lawn mower accident statistics showed that measures must be undertaken to reduce or to guard against the hazards of operating these machines. A cantilever rod blade guard was designed, built, developed, and tested. The rotary mower, when equipped with a blade guard, mowed the lawn satisfactorily and yet, when encountering a test object (a dressed chicken), passed over it without inflicting injury to the test object.
