    Is there a flail mower suitable for a 1026R?

    Is there a flail mower suitable for a 1026R? I've got a RC2048, but it doesn't work particularly well in the ups and downs of our trails. Just wondering if the shorter flail mower would work better. Does this even exist in a usable form? Just daydreaming for now...

    ETA: Found this, no idea how much it might cost, or how well it would work....

    You could start here http://www.flailmaster.com and work backwards to see what is out there. I have two mott/alamo seven foot ones with 44 perches for 88 blades. The sheet metal guard for the belts is pretty well protected compared to what you posted a link to. One is centered and the other is offset basically as much as possible to have almost all the weight on one lift arm. The centered one is best for extreme inclines and narrow spots while the other one can stick out over drop offs. It also lets you only squash unmowed stuff with one set of wheels. They both can cut equally well close to a fence or obsticle (since they cut wider than my wheel spacing). The real beauty is when you can set the rear lift arms to float. I see the one you linked has some sort of floating top link. There is a different rotor with twice as many perches and a different design blade you can see at the attached link if a finish grass lawn in more of the task at hand. I have used ex municipal ones which took a few days of work each to get to where they are now condition wise.

    I would say that is a good brand I took a picture off of the listing to show the blades. These are the lawn oriented ones. The other ones attach a shackle to the perch and the blades are shorter and heavier and attach to the shackle.

    Fran...k,

    That's right. I learned quickly that my Mott mower doesn't like too large of wood or rocks. Now that those areas are tamed down, and my mowers knives have been replaced, it works awesome on tall grass and weeds. Going forward, my plan is too just keep up with those areas with my MMM.

    I agree with Kenny. My 74" Caroni barely puts my 4720 (58HP) to work at all. It's actually now my neighbor's, and I pull a 12' Rhino flail around now - now that puts the 4720 to work!!!

    -J.
    2014 JD 5075M (just barely pre T IV emissions), H310 with bucket mounted grapple, HLA powertine forks, 8' HLA snowblade, Schulte SDX-840 Snowblower, Rhino 12' Flail, 6' Sweepster 3pt PTO broom, hydraulic toplink from CCM, LED lights front and back, big pile of 3pt implements.

    2006 JD 3120 with R3 Turf Tires, 300x loader, Artillian Forks & Trailer Mover

    Gator 825i S4 - NOW WITH TRACKS!!!

    2014 pre-emission 997 with 60" deck

    Wish List:
    now that I have a cozy cab, nothing really....
