Looking for some opinions from people using flail mowers. I just brush hogged a lot of fields and was thinking about getting an 88 inch flail to keep them mowed down two or three times a year.
Good point, most of the property I mentioned is grass and fairly level, most is spectator and parking areas and any protruding rocks were ground off over the years by the woods and rotary mowers. I forgot there were different blades; HAMMERKNIFE is a brand name, there are places where they don't call 'em flails.....How rough of ground? rocks? Flail won't take the abuse a brush hog will.If you are cutting weeds and heavy stuff if using a flail you better be at the higher side of the horsepower rating for the mower.Grass and light weeds a flail will work fine.Never used the Hammer blades only the Y style I know when the Y type get dull they don't cut very good.
