/ Lack of flail mower development in US. #11
Indeed. That's why I run a Toro Groundsmaster with a front flail deck. I won't even begin to mention all the benefits. I'll never go back to tractor mounted attachments for mowing.I've actually been thinking the same thing over the winter. Never looked into availability but was thinking a flail mower mounted on a Kubota F series would run circles around a 3 pt mounted mower. I also considered the possibility of converting a rear mount flail to front -- might be cheaper and easier than finding one. Many of the larger ones are convertible.
FYI, your attachment links don't work
You're right. You wouldn't want 6-8ft of rotary deck out front of a commercial mower frame. That's why they make flail decks for them. They're effective, lighter, more compact, more maneuverable, and have a high degree of success in the European market.I hadn't thought about it like that before. The part that had me thinking about it was that they are more compact. I can't see pushing a 6' rotary cutter on a F series where I could see it pushing a 6' flail
