Combine the reliability of a genuine Briggs and Stratton engine with the toughest engineering specifications and you have Australia's most heavy duty tow behind mower. Designed for Australian conditions this mower will eat through grass on rugged terrain and landscape.
Beware of imitations. Poor welding and design, paint application and inferior Chinese engines will cause problems! You get what you pay for. PADDOCK units are exceptional quality with thousands of units in use around Australia. Come and compare to spot the differences.
Flail style mowers are generally used for maintaining more rugged areas where an polished clean finish is not required. The blades or flails are extremely durable and can handle thick & long grass, sticks, bark and debris. Ideal for grass cutting and mulching on farms, acreages, golf courses, parks, road sides, properties, horse and cattle studs to name a few.
The Paddock tow behind flail mowers have a rotating drum with a series of 28 flail blades. The drum stretches the length of the mower. This design, when compared to your standard style mower with rotating horizontal blades, is much more robust and can tackle more rugged vegetation.
This mower is powered by its own petrol engine, not a PTO shaft like many other flail mowers, meaning you simply tow the implement with a vehicle of your choice. The following are very popular for pulling the mowers; quad bikes, four wheelers, ride on mowers, tractors, utes, 4WDs and ATVs.
The large 2 ply wheels combined with skids on either side prevent damaged to the mower when wheels drop into pot holes or ruts, the side skids are also adjustable in height along with the roller.
Mow fence lines with ease as the PADDOCK design allows for the wheels to be located at the rear of the mower meaning the cutting blades can run closer to the fence. Cheap knock off units don't have this feature.
To adjust the mowing height, there are simple height adjuster handles. This system is quick and reliable.
When connecting to your vehicle, the hitch height and offset can also be altered to suit. Grass is discharged from the rear of the mower and the rear roller provides a clean finish compared to other slashers. Incorporating steel stone guards at the front further protects the driver and surrounds from damage from flying debris. The blades are vertically mounted and rotate in the vertical plane mean there are far more contact points giving great durability and a finer cut. Lawns will respond better to a flail mower cut and overtime improve with the clippings returning as fine mulch.
When designing and constructing these mowers they need to stand up to continual use in harsh environments. The Briggs and Stratton 4 stroke engine gives amazing reliability with limited maintenance. B&S have a fantastic dealer network which spans the country and the world wide warranty offers piece of mind. The mower frame and construction is heavy duty steel, laser cut to precision, making a higher quality overall unit compared to the imitations.Steel work is prepared and finished with a hard wearing powder coat to keep your mower looking great.
The units are fitted with high quality bearings and any wear areas are easily maintained with grease nipples. The tyres are 2 ply puncture resistant and offer an extended service life when compared to others. The units come fitted with heavy duty cutting hammer blades designed for prolonged use with limited wear.
The mower comes with a 50mm (2") tow ball hitch and will fit standard tow balls. Given the weight of the unit we do not suggest modifying to a clevis pin hitch. This mower can be towed with a range of equipment such as quad bikes, ATVs and even utilities. The tow draw bar is able to pivot up and down so it can fit tow balls of varying height. Many customers have used with Toyota Landcruiser utes and the similar height vehicles.
The Paddock tow behind mower can be configured with the wheels side by side (this is how the mower is initially set up) or with the wheels trailing from the rear. To change between the two set ups takes approximately 20 minutes. With the wheels trailing from the rear and the side guards removed it allows the user to mow much closer to objects, sheds, tanks, posts, fences lines etc.
