Flail mower looks to cut competitors down to size
New from UK firm Spearhead is the R270, 9ft flail mower which the firm claims can shred grass, scrub and rushes.
The rush-busting flail mower is designed to shred the material finely and spreads it evenly for a neat finish.
According to Farmhand, who are the importers and distributors for Spearhead products, the R270 is a bit more expensive than a bladed topper but is a more versatile machine. The firm says it can cope with topping rushes and long grass, maintaining parkland and grass verges along driveways, motorways and roundabouts. The Spearhead is fitted with a hydraulic side-shift ram, heavy-duty roller and 30 large cutting flails. List price is €6,715 ex VAT.
