The flail mower attachment provides optimal safety, performance and uptime protection in mowing and land-clearing applications such as cleaning ditches, hillsides, utility right-of-ways and riverbanks, as well as maintenance for parks and recreational trails.
The flail mower has multiple safety features, such as a side safety chain within the housing unit to help deflect and contain debris that could be thrown during operation. Additionally, a rotor brake stops the flail mower from full speed in seven seconds or less when the flail mower hydraulics are deactivated.
Cut more efficiently
Compact excavator owners who need a smooth cutting motion to rip through hard and soft woods, vines, grass and brush will appreciate the flail mower’s triple-knife design. The compact deck allows the flail mower to manage varying ground contours and hard-to-reach places, maintaining surface contact for efficient cutting.
The direct-drive motor excels in aggressive cutting applications, providing an optimal balance between torque and rpm. The popular X-Change™ attachment mounting system makes it easy to connect the 40-inch FMR flail mower to the E63. A pin-on mounting system or optional pin-grabber quick coupler option are available for connecting the 40-inch FMR flail mower to the E80 and E85 excavators.
To help keep up with various land-clearing jobs and to reduce machine downtime, the 40-inch FMR flail mower features:
- Reversible flails: Provides bi-directional rotation by switching the hydraulic hoses at the drive motor.
- Rubber torsion disc: Absorbs stress forces encountered during operation.
- Heavy-duty flanges: Protects the drive train from dust and debris, and prevents wires from damaging the drive train mechanism.
