Flail Mowers are useful for jobs where you are cutting grass on 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.The EFGC Series (Medium Duty) Flail Mower is an option if you are working on grass or brush. Ideal for an orchard, nursery, vineyard, in the greenhouse or for gardening. With its fast blade tip speed and interchangeable blades it is perfect for your grounds keeping tasks. If you need to maintain more dense areas, install the Hammer Blades and you will be able to cut and mulch wooded material up to 3 inches in diameter.  This model is great for acreage larger than 15 acres. less.

Gear Box

The EFGC Series has a rugged cast iron gearbox. The gearbox has a continuous rating of 65 HP.


Bearings are greasable and replaceable. Sizing is standard and can be purchased at any local bearing shop.

Blade Arrangement

Flail mowers come in different sizes. The EFGC Series sizes vary from  47 – 83 inches. The number of flail blades and their arrangement varies. Blades are measured as blades per foot of rotor. A mower with a large number of blades gives a closer and cleaner cut than a mower with fewer blades.

Blade (Knife) Options

When the shaft or axle rotates at a high speed on the mower, the attached flail blades are pushed out by centrifugal force and sever grass, weeds and brush. The EFGC Series available blades are grass “Y” blades (10.9 oz./309g) or Hammer blades (27 oz./766g). These blades provide a finer and smoother finish. Designed for very light brush; nothing larger than 3” in diameter. These blades may be sharpened and used for lawn grooming

Cutting Height

Cutting height can be adjusted by the tractor’s 3-Pt hitch or by the mowers adjustable rear roller. The EFGC Series can be adjusted to cut grass 1/4 – 6 inches. Mower is also equipped with anti-scalping side rails and a tapered roller to ensure smooth turns.

Adjustable Offset

Right Side Offset is very helpful if you are working around fence lines, trees or other item s in the field. The offset is the addition to ½ the total mowing width. The distance is listed in the specifications table is the addition that is added to ½ the mowing width from center of the gearbox to the right cutting edge.

OPTIONAL 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 line, or whatever else is in your path. This is connected to a Remote Hydraulic designed to power the cylinder (also known as 2-way valve) or the rear remote on your tractor design to power the cylinder.
