Description of Ditch Bank Flail Mowers:
Ditch bank flail mowers are Super Heavy Duty Mowers designed with heavy cutting blades that can chop heavy brush including grasses, debris, sticks, vines, branches, and other wooded materials up to 4” in diameter. The mower head is attached to a hydraulic arm allowing you to swing the mulcher beyond your tractors wheels. The head may be pivoted hydraulically up to 90 degrees for hedge or hillside work or down 55 degrees for the ditch or bank work. Connect it to our optional 4-way hydraulic control valve with a hydraulic float and the mulcher will follow the contours of the terrain.
A flail mower doesn’t throw grass, instead, it cuts finely and leaves the cuttings on the ground where it was cut making it an excellent choice for those places where you could cause damage by throwing debris. Highway mowing and park maintenance often use flail mowers because they are less likely to throw objects during cutting.

Details of Ditch Bank Flail Mowers:
Overall Width: The AGF series has an overall width of 72.5″ to 88.5″ depending on the size of the unit.
Cutting Width: The AGF series has a tilling width of 55″ to 71″ depending on the size of the unit.
Weight: The AGF series has a weight of 1318 lbs to 1500 lbs depending on the size of the unit.
HP Requirements at PTO: The AGF series requires 45 – 85 PTO horsepower depending on the size of the unit.
Cutting Height: The AGF series has a 0″ – 6″ Adjustable to meet various height requirements
Housing Material Thickness: The AGF series has a housing of 5mm thick.
Side Plate Thickness: The AGF series has a side plate thickness of 5/16″.
Blade Type: The AGF series uses a heavy-duty hammer blade. Each hammer blade weighs 2lbs 12 oz made of cast steel (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron). Use the hammer blades for clearing saplings (4″ diameter or less) and for grasses.
Number of Blades: The AGF series uses 12 – 16 hammer blades depending on the size of the unit.
Precision Blade Overlap: On the AGF series the blades are staggered precisely with no gap in the mowing area. Blade overlap is important to achieve an even cutting result.
Rotor Rotation – Reverse: The rotor spins in the opposite direction as the wheels of the tractor when traveling forward. This allows the blades to shear the material as it is folded forward by the mowers. The material is then thrown up and over the rotor.
Rotor Tube Diameter: 5″ – Heavy-duty steel tubing for long life.
Balanced Rotor Tube: The rotor tube is balanced to reduce vibration and ensures that the mower runs smooth, and reduces wear on the bearings.
Hitch Type: Category 2 standard 3-point.
Pivot Offset From Center Mount: This feature allows for an offset from the center to the right of the tractor. This feature is helpful for mowing around fences, buildings; walkways, etc. From the center of the PTO, the mower extends 68″ to 84″ depending on the size of the unit.
Hydraulic Offset: The hydraulic cylinder permits the carrier frame to be moved under your command. This permits you to control the cutting position of the mower. Designed so that you can get around rows, trees, fence lines, or whatever else is in your path. This is connected to a Remote Hydraulic designed to power the cylinder (also known as a 2-way valve) or the rear remote on your tractor design to power the cylinder. Hydraulic Requirements: Hydraulic sources must be constant flow for powering Control Valve. We recommend the use of Front Loader Style Control Valve with Float Option. Float spool connected to the vertical pivoting cylinder will allow the mower to float and naturally follow the ground contour.
Drive Belts: The AGF series uses 4 belts.
Gearbox Rating: Up to 85 hp. Heavy-duty proved oil bath gearbox for long life.
Driveline / PTO Shaft: Shear Bolt PTO Shaft for Standard 1-3/8” 6-Spline PTO
Finish: Baked-on powder coat, powder coat is superior to paint.
Warranty: 2-year parts warranty with an optional 2-year extension.
