Modified Flail Raises Performance Levels: Flail Manufacturer Muthing have launched a wheeled version of their out-front MU-FM flail. Simon Richard, UK Agent for the Muthing range says, “When compared with a cylinder mower alternative, the flail option’s ability to cut longer and wetter grass more efficiently has long been well established.
Manoeuvrability has always been the negative to using a flail mower but Muthing’s new development, where the conventional rear roller is replaced with four wheels, has taken performance to a new level. Client testing feedback confirms a marked increase in both manoeuvrability and also quality of cut, along verges and around flower beds and trees.
Dougie Fox from East Lothian Council’s Landscape and Countryside Department says, “due to changes in the way certain areas have to be maintained, using a flail mower is the ideal solution. The Muthing MU-FM-4 wheel, on our John Deere’s allows us to cut longer, wetter growth. Manoeuvrability is superior to other products in the market and the end result is a more easily maintained area with a better visual finish”
Simon continues “Highway and embankment maintenance has been at the fore-front of public expenditure cuts and equipment suppliers need to react to these changes. Local authority ability to achieve the two objectives of delivering cut quality at less frequent intervals will be increased by raising the level of flails mowers, as a percentage of ground care machinery stock. Rotary and Flail mowers also generally cost less to purchase, and maintain”
