What's A Flail Mower? | Flail Mower For Sale UK | Flail Mower For Compact Tractors
Updated: Jul 1
If you’ve seen a flail mower for sale and are wondering what flail mowers are good for then we will cover the basics here. Basically, flail mowers for compact tractors are used to deal with heavier grass or scrub that a normal lawn mower can’t cope with.
The dictionary definition of the word “flail” includes:
A threshing tool
Now, if you take a look at a flail on a flail mower, it is usually a T or Y shaped piece of metal. These flails are attached to a drum which rotates via a PTO drive. So, imagine many flails wind-milling – moving round in a circle rather like rotating sails, and threshing – thrashing at grass underneath a protective canopy, then it’s easy to visualise why flail mowers for compact tractors are such an effective way to cut grass. Watch this video of a flail mower in action, and you’ll see just how quickly it deals with long grass and scrub.
