I posted this over in the flail mower discussion but I wanna jump on this if it's something my tractor can handle.

A buddy of mine bought a flail and loves it. There are a lot of great reviews of them here, so, now I want one!:rolleyes:

A guy has a 90" Alamo flail mower for $400......he said he'd take $350 and throw in any blades that are missing and 12 extra. It comes with a drive shaft and needs a bearing, according to him......claims he bought an offset one and likes it better. He bought it at a municipality auction.

I have the old bush hog I fixed up. I will be maintaining everything from grassy fields to over-grown brush that even would be fun on a dozer.....and everything in between.

Here's a pic....

How much does it weigh? Alamo typically a HD unit. Although it could be used up & that's why the Highway dept got rid of it... I'd say if you can lift it, buy it. Worst case you refurb it and sell for profit.

Ditto. So long as you have the skills to refurbish it without paying someone $75/hr to do it for you. That is a valuable mower if it can be made servicable.
