Description for MOWER:
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 2” 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 60 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.

Cutting Width of Ditch Bank Flail mower: The AGL series has a tilling width of 48″ to 65″ depending on the size of the unit.
Weight: The AGL series has a weight of 675 lbs to 895 lbs depending on the size of the unit.
HP Requirements at PTO: The AGL series requires 20 – 65 PTO horsepower depending on the size of the unit.
Cutting Height: The AGL series has a 0″ – 6″ Adjustable to meet various height requirements
Housing Material Thickness: The AGL series has a housing of 3-4mm thick.
Side Plate Thickness: The AGL series has a side plate thickness of 1/4″.
Blade Type: The AGL series uses a standard hammer blade. Each hammer blade weighs 14 oz made of cast steel (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron). Use the hammer blades for clearing saplings (2″ diameter or less).
Number of Blades: The AGL series uses 20 – 28 hammer blades depending on the size of the unit.
Precision Blade Overlap: On the AGL 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: 4 1/2″- 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 1 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 44″ to 61″ 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.

Gearbox Rating: Up to 65 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

I been using my Ditch Bank AGL 165 for 2yrs now , great cutting machine. I use it around my ponds and it does a great job
Very Impressed with this! I replaced my Rotary cutter with this and I find that I can cut much heavier material with less power. It also produces a better finish leaving smaller debris. The reach of the ditch/bank mower allows a much wider use also.
The mower was crated nicely in a welded steel crate, however fedex still managed to bend up the crate. No damage other than a few scratches. I requested a lift gate on the order, however fedex showed up without it. I was able to use my pallet forks to remove it from the trailer and I was refunded the lift gate charge without issue.
Had a small problem with the stand on one side of the small arm welded on wrong side. Jason handled the problem to my satisfaction with no hassle, i was so pleased i came back later and ordered a 6 ft finish mower from him. His prices cant be beat and the equipment is good quality.
