Description for flail mower:
Rough duty flail mowers are useful for jobs where you are cutting grass on the uneven ground, high grass, weeds, brush, and other debris. This “M” Series mower has a double re-enforced curved deck and stronger 3-pt connection that can handle the twisting forces that occur when only one side of your mower deck is on the ground. With its fast blade tip speed and interchangeable blades, it is perfect for your groundskeeping tasks. If you need to maintain grass and cover crops, install the optional Grass blades.
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. The MFCM Series (Field & Brush) Flail Mower is an option if you are working on the uneven ground, brush, stumps, and other items that your mower must handle.

Precision Blade Overlap: On the VL-MFCM 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.

Balanced Rotor Tube: The rotor tube is balanced to reduce vibration and ensures that the mower runs smooth, and reduces wear on the bearings.
