With years of experience, Active Groundworks is pleased to offer all-encompassing and expert Agricultural and Equestrian Field services across Mid-West Cornwall.

What is flail mowing?

A flail mower is a type of powered agricultural equipment, which is used to deal with heavier grass/scrub which a normal lawn mower could not cope with.

The flail mower gets its name from the use of “flails” attached to its rotating horizontal drum (also called tube, rotor, or axle). Many implement companies also refer to the flails as knives or blades. The rows of flails are usually staggered to provide a complete cut.

The flails are attached to the drum using chain links or brackets, depending on the manufacturer. The rotating drum is perpendicular to the axis of the tractor. As the drum rotates, centrifugal force pushes the flails outward.
