Description for flail mower:

The Value-Leader CMAD flail mowers are the best multi-purpose mower in its size and power class. With a standard flail mower the material you are cutting is retained under the deck until it is expelled down like with a rotary mower, with the opening rear deck of the CMAD (Commercial, modified adjustable deck) You may open the rear of the flail mower and let the cut material expel, similar to the discharge of a lawnmower. This allows you to cut faster when you wish. In addition, is great for changing mower blades.

Key Features:

  • Structural Q235 Roll formed robot cut and fitted steel for durability and quality. 4 Gauge deck & 1/4″ sided plates.
  • 27 ounce 3 1/8″ wide forged tool steel hammer blades cut/chop up to 3″ diameter grass, weeds & brush, or optional durable “Y” rock knifes for faster cutting.
  • 14.5″ blade swing provides fast blade tip cutting speed for faster mowing. 136 feet per second.
  • 5″ balanced blade holder tube for smooth operation and long bearing life.
  • External access to rotor shaft bearings makes service far easier.
  • Balanced steel V-Belt pulley to eliminate vibration.
  • Anti-clumping shredder bar welded under the deck improves mulching and wet grass cutting.
  • Dual Cat-I/II quick hitch comparable 5/16 inch steel tube 3-point hitch with both fixed and slip top.
  • Offset from center to get mower past your tractor for mowing near or around objects.
  • Multiple tuff V-Belts provide positive drive to the blades and external belt tighten make maintenance quick and easy.
  • Heavy duty 65 horsepower steel gearbox with internal over-running clutch allows blades to spin down gradually. Without it, the rotor shaft slams to a stop when power is removed from the mower, which can damage tractor & mower.
  • Replaceable side skids assist with anti-scalping and reduce surface gouging.
  • Bearings are easily accessed for greasing and zerks are shielded from damage.
  • Full-width rear roller with minimum cutting height adjustment from 1/2″ to roller has tapered ends to eliminate gouging when turning corners. Roller has scraper bar to remove buildup mud and debris as you mow.
  • Powder coat finish keeps your mower looking good longer as it is more rust resistant and durable than a spray finish.

Precision Blade Overlap: On the VL-MFCMAD series the blades are staggered precisely with no gap in the mowing area. Blade overlap is important to achieve an even cutting result.

Hinged Rear Gate: This allows for easy inspection, cleaning, blade changing, and maintenance of your machine. The rear gate can also be left open for easier discharge in heavy conditions, or you can close the gate to greater mulching.

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.
