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.

Key Features:

  • Mower/Mulcher has 65 HP Cast-iron gearbox
  • Four drive belts assure power to the blades
  • Adjustable rear roller with mud scraper bar, heights of 0 to 6 inches
  • β€œY” grass blades are optional.
  • Under deck clump busters
  • Large deck offset lets you get close to objects.
  • Rear height adjusting roller with tapered ends to eliminate gouging when turning

Blade Type: The FME series uses standard hammer blade or reversible Y-blades. Each hammer blade weighs 1 lb. 11 oz made of cast steel (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron). The Y-blades weighs 10.9 oz. Use the hammer blades for clearing saplings (3" diameter or less), and the Y-blades for grasses.

Number of Blades: The FME series uses 24 - 32 hammer blades or 48 - 64 Y-blades, depending on the size of the unit.

Precision Blade Overlap: On the FME 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.

Rotor Swing Diameter: 14 1/2" Large swing so that the blades build required inertia.
