Bobcat Flail Mower

Bobcat has introduced a new 40-inch FMR flail mower attachment for use with its E63, E80, and E85 excavators.

“The flail mower attachment provides optimal safety, performance and uptime protection in mowing and land-clearing applications such as cleaning ditches, hillsides, utility right-of-ways and riverbanks, as well as maintenance for parks and recreational trails,” Bobcat says in a release.

The flail mower has multiple safety features, such as a side safety chain within the housing unit to help deflect and contain debris that could be thrown during operation. Additionally, Bobcat says a rotor brake stops the flail mower from full speed in seven seconds or less when the flail mower hydraulics are deactivated.

Bobcat boasts the flair mower’s triple-knife design offers a smooth cutting motion to rip through hard and soft woods, vines, grass and brush. As well, a compact deck was designed so the flail mower could better manage varying ground contours and hard-to-reach places while maintaining surface contact for efficient cutting.

Other features include a direct-drive motor, X-Change attachment mounting system, reversible flails for bi-directional rotation, rubber torsion disc to absorb stress, and heavy-duty flanges to protect the drivetrain from dust and debris.
