Flail mower looks to cut competitors down to size
Published 12/04/2011 | 05:00
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.
