48" Boom mounted Flail mower
Looking for a better way to cut ditches, embankments and pond or river banks? The BECO boom mounted ditch / bank flail mower will make it look great. Works just like normal flail mower but with the added ability to shift out to the right side of the tractor and pivot up to 60° down and 90° up. With the standard hammer blades it can mulch up to 2" diameter material.
The flail mower gets its name from the use of "flails" attached to its rotating horizontal shaft, As the shaft rotates, centrifugal force pushes the flails outward. The mower is easy to attach to the back of a tractor using the three-point hitch and is driven by the PTO. The "Y" shaped standard flails are intended to cut and mulch grass and weeds, you can upgrade to "hammers" for heavier duty operations such as mulching brush and roadside applications.
Flail mowers are able to cut tall grass and are good at mulching and evenly distributing the clippings over the width of the mower, they are able to withstand impact with debris as the blades are able to tuck back. They are also unlikely to pick up and throw debris.
