Description for flail mower:
This light commercial flail mower is ideal for working the brush. Has stronger box channel 3-point frame and a deck with additional reinforcement to reduce twisting that occurs when mowing uneven ground. Comes with the optional EFGC Brush Hammer Blades installed. Flail Mowers are useful for jobs where you are cutting grass on the uneven ground, high grass, weeds, brush, and small saplings. 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.
