Steve, I was just at a workshop where we needed chopped straw for plaster. We built a make shift box in a corner of the building with plywood and straw bales and then ran a lawn mower over straw in the box. +++++++++++ Another version on that that Ken Kern did was to upend a rotary lawnmower blade system (push blade kind) and mount is over a box and just turned a handle attached to the blade side rail and passed straw thru to chop with no electricty or fuel needed. some people also drop straw into a barrel while someone uses a wheedwacker to chop it.
