I don't have photos of the lawn work i do as taking before and after photos of a lawn would not show much . But surely you can imagine how good it does lawns if it does such a good job with scrub and with no clippings .
    These are the cast 'P' hammers for those who have not seen them . You will note how sharp they are and how wide they are , it is not hard to imagine how they would cut the grass neatly . And as they are paddle shaped they create great suction that lifts the grass and leaves etc to meet them .
    Could you please give dimensions of those hammers. -- Mounting shank width and hole dia, blade width, length from mount hole center to cutting edge. I havent been able to find any suppliers listing specs on the net.
    Thanks!

    SPYDERLK , because i am on very slow dialup i can only post the cached version of this Australian supplier that i buy all my flails off . But you will be able to download the catalogue from here . All the dimensions are listed , once you find a suitable flail you should be able to find a supplier in the states . Good luck .

    Hope your new mulchers come with diapers or there'll be a different mess to clean up!

    I paid closer attention to my flail yesterday and, yes, it seemd to "suck up" the grass as I lowered it. I lowered it slowly and before the mower was completely on the ground, I noticed it made the grass, and sticks, pull up into it......

    Well, I looks like I just bought myself a lot of work.....

    Unit is a old proto-type ......Sold as SICMA and Phoenix.... Should fit most any other flail with no - or minor change such as using different size hangers..
    The Cup blade has the same cutting width as most Y blades....Mount to rotor and make sure blades clear mower skirt/apron. Need to be as long as possible to ensure adequate blade speed.

Size is 16mm x1.5 mm threads to match the dipstick. Source was British Metrics. Address is on one of the photos below. Works perfectly. With the dipstick in the extension the very bottom of the dipstick shows oil if you had it filled to the top fill line without the extension. No oil spillage at all once the extender is put in. Cost was about $10 plus shipping as I recall.

    Thanks, I ordered one yesterday, received and installed it today, will test it tomorrow. $11.63, shipping included.
