The advantage of a flail mower is that it will cut almost anything. The disadvantage is that they are expensive. If you have a lot of money burning a hole in your pocket, get one that mounts on the front loader and runs off of a PTO hydraulic pump. They take a lot of power, so the pump will have to able to run a 1" line. The fact that they will cut anything also makes them dangerous. Just last week a guy was killed near here while sleeping along the road. He must have really been out of it not to hear the tractor and mower coming, or maybe he was deaf.

There is another advantage of the flail is they do no send missiles out, my dog likes to follow me around and the flail chomps it up where you are at, that's the main reason I went to a flail a number of years ago, and the cut is far superior.
