    Just ordered TM1900BSC - 75 Caroni Flail Mower, it was $100.00 cheaper on shipping by call-in order. Looking forward to using it, I have 17 acres to take care of which about 7 acres is pasture. I will be using a Mahindra 4110 4wd 40hp to run the flail mower. Looks like it does up to 1" saplings and overgrowth, do you all find this to be true? Can it do bigger stuff? My current bushog does up to 2" stuff but doesnt chew it up good just leaves a sharp stalk (tire getter) usually and leaves the rest in chunks on the ground. Thanks......Mike

    You will not even notice 1 inch stuff going throught the mower. I cut that going forwards. Two inch material it handles well but it will make a racket. I usually back into two inch material and cut it again on the way out. I use a 41hp tractor to mow about 15 acres of fields and to reclaim additional fields from 15 year overgrown material so that sounds essentially like what you are doing.

    That is one of the biggest advantages of a flail over a bush hog. The flail mulches what it cuts while the bush hog just fractures wood until it flies out from underneath the cutter or the cutter moves past it. That can leave 3-6 inch stumps intact with sharp edges standing up after mowing. A bush hog will also routinely shoot out 6-18 inch chunks of branches which lay around in a field slowly decomposing. If you set a flail to cut low and don't travel too fast the mower leaves almost undetectable "stumps" of brush with a single pass which are far less likely to hurt tires etc. A flail will rarely eject a partially mulched piece of wood. If a flail does not cut a piece of brush completely it typically will denude the whole bush and leave just an intact long stem still attached to the root (you can see one in the middle of the first photo at the edge of the uncut area). These are uncut because the mower pushes them to the ground but they are easily identified and cut with another pass.

    Haven't seen one that clean in a while. Don't be upset when the gearbox vent cap burps a few ounces of oil after heating up. It's just like a two month old kid that burps up a bit of dinner on a regular basis. You can either let it burp up all the excess (it doesn't need as much oil as the dipstick suggests) or you can put a riser extension on the vent cap which some of us have done. Do a search in this thread if you want to do that as you need a very specific metric sized extender that you will not find in Home Depot or Tractor Supply. Easy to get by UPS from a place in Maryland for about ten bucks. Details are buried in this thread somewhere.
