Combine the reliability of a made in the USA 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 imitation units offering inferior Chinese engines ! You get what you pay for and having a mower that won't start is a nightmare.
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. To adjust the mowing height there is height adjuster which is changed simply by turning the handle. 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 stones. 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.
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. The simple pull start mechanism negates the need for batteries which are often flat after long periods without use. The mower frame and construction is heavy duty steel, finished with a hard wearing powder coat. Paddock machinery comes standard with high quality bearings and wear areas easily maintained with grease nipples. The wheels are 2 ply puncture resistant rubber and offer an extended service life when compared to others. Blades are heavy duty, steel, 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.
