Anyone used a ATV tow behind flail?

Recommended Posts

Just taken on a new site with rough grass round a lake and a pony paddock, I have ride on mowers etc and quad on site but was thinking of getting a tow behind flail, as the title says anyone used them to good effect?

 

Possibly a Haytor Condor if I can find one but fancy riding rather than walking these days.

 

Cheers S.G.

i have a logic flail, its a bit under powered so you need to go slowly which quads dont like. I tow mine behind the avant with another hydraulic one mounted on the front (two passes at one go)

I hired a Wessex AF 120, very good on the flat. But lethal on slopes! Very well built and powerful enough to smash rushes.

Thanks for the info guys will try and make my mind up! I have used all sorts over the yrs from the out front single wheel Honda to Condors, BCS with a flail option, never thought about a Scag, ty Harry.

I often use a friends Kubota garden tractor with a nice homemade flail on the back. The weight makes the thing unstable and the power demands lead to a boil up every half hour or so if worked too hard. Not sure a quad would be a good solution as the mini tractor struggles and that's probably a lot more suitable than a quad.

The atv ones are dual use.
