I'm looking for a somewhat budget friendly, hopefully it $4k, hydraulic flail mower that's around 6' wide. I'm torn between the Titan, Woodmaxx, and Betstco mowers.

Which would you recommend or is there something else about the same price range you'd recommend over these?

I am considering Del Morino flails which are in the ballpark of these other brands, if a little on the high end of your quoted price range. Del Morino gets pretty good reviews on the web and You Tube. However, the Bestco appears to be a pretty careful copy of the Del Morino so maybe they are decent.

Had my FM62 Woodmaxx since 2017 and it gets used a few times a year. No issues. I got it with Y knives and I mow my lawn with it and cut tall grass and small brush it with. Does striping equal to a baseball field when done right.

Picked mine up right from them and they are very good people to work with!

I run it on a BX2200 too.

I have the Bestco 48" HD with hammers and all good after over a year of some heavy work. One set of belts and regular grease is all it needs.

Check out Nova Tractor's offerings. I'm running their 7' MXZ flail, which actually IS heavy-duty (use caution when approaching stuff that's labeled such as most is nowhere near being heavy-duty). The MXZ is an absolute beast (1,200 #): I'm a bit under-powered (min HP is 60, I'm 55), but still am able to work with it. Maybe check out their MFZ model (compare to the others).

Everything that you could ever want to know about flails is (or is likely) covered in this massive thread: Flail Mower - Let's talk flail mowers

Go with a Betsco, they are Italian made. I have a palletforks one....even tho it has worked good, they don't have any spare parts what so ever available.
As much as I would like to say my Bestco mower was made in Italy, I think your referring to Befco.
