Push mower mods

Mowing faster saves time and gasoline. My used 6hp briggs and stratton flat head mower has plenty of power but it's discharge chute clogs up with tall grass and weeds too easy then the mower boggs down. That means slow down and allow the chute to clear.
Ain't nobody got time for that.
Before plasma cutter:

After plasma cutter:

If you have other people near by, it's probably not a good idea to make the discharge chute bigger.
