Increasing demand for out-front flails

Simon Richard, UK Agent for the Muthing flails and Reform bank tractor ranges says “Highway and embankment maintenance has been at the fore-front of public expenditure cuts and equipment suppliers need to react to these changes. The ability for local authority’s and contractors to achieve the two objectives of delivering cut quality at less frequent intervals will be increased by raising the level of out-front flail mowers as a percentage of their ground care machinery stock. Rotaries and flail mowers generally cost less to purchase, and maintain, particularly grinding the cylinders and adjusting the bottom blade.
The quality of cut afforded by flail mowers has increased dramatically over the years to the point where these machines are no longer kept just for rougher areas. Smaller, lightweight versions are now finding employment on golf courses and cricket wickets. The flail is far more effective and efficient in longer wet grass conditions as the discharge area reaches the full width of the machine. Perhaps the main claim of the flail its ability to deliver very acceptable surfaces in all grass conditions and at a fraction of the cost of the alternatives”
