Flail mower is a drum-type cutter, intended for cutting of long grass, lade configuration scrub, bush and similar vegetation. It will cut up to 20 mm thick tree branches with ease.
The blades on the flail mower shaft move freely, so in case they hit a solid obstacle they will give in rather than break. This saves the blades costs when cutting in an unfamiliar place. Flail mower is the optimal cutting device for places where you need a lot of cutting power and a rougher cut will do. The most common grounds for flail mowers are places with taller vegetation like meadows, road banks, yard areas etc.
