Here we have a video of the Orec HRC802B Tracked Pedestrian Flail Mower. This is a compact tracked pedestrian machine is powered by a Honda 10 hp engine. It’s a great machine for clearing overgrown areas, coping with slopes and banks and long grass etc.
The video shows the operator working on a steep bank, unfortunately, the weather was wet making the bank very slippery. However, the week before the flail mower had literally cut down all the overgrown brambles leaving it finely mulched. You can see a few brambles that have been left uncut where the machine couldn’t reach. Literally, the whole site was covered in these brambles.
The Orec HRC802B Tracked Pedestrian Flail Mower made an excellent job of mulching the brambles and literally clearing the area. The long-term plan of this overgrown area is to keep flailing the area and to keep it under control. Then in early spring broadcast, some grass seed, then with the regular mowing or flailing the grass should be the dominant plant.
Advantages Of A Flail Mower
I have always liked the idea of a flail mower, several years ago I used to own a Turner hydrostatic pedestrian flail mower. Once again, the principal was great for overgrown areas, something that a flail mower does extremely well. It amazes me how you can have an overgrown area, covered in brambles and nettles. Very quickly this area can be transformed into something fairly decent with very little cost and minimum effort.
One of the many advantages of a flail mower is the fact that it can withstand many more knocks than a traditional rotary mower. Although rotary mowers can be great for cutting down long grass, the problem arises when you hit a hidden obstacle like a tree stump. With a flail mower the flails will kind of bounce off the tree stump and not do any damage apart from possibly blunting the flails slightly. Whereas a rotary mower could end up with a bent blade or damaged disc depending on what type of rotary mower it is.
