Features

NSK BRAND SHAFT BEARINGS – NEW FOR AUGUST 2016

NSK is a leading bearing and motion control manufacturing company founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1916. Today NSK has several plants around the world including England, Germany, USA and Switzerland and by far one the best quality bearings available on the market today. Although these bearings are very costly, we feel that in an application with high load and dynamic forces such as a flail mower that such high quality bearings are required. These bearings are noticeably smoother, quieter, and cooler running than any competitor and far superior to any no-name brand. Some inferior bearings contain plastic interior ball cages that are susceptible to breakage from shock loads. Poor material and tolerances generate excessive heat that translates into premature bearing failure and even belt wear as the heat travel to the pulleys and the belts. All bearings are not created equal, and this is a feature that should not be overlooked when shopping for a flail mower.

OVERALL WIDTH

79.5"

CUTTING WIDTH

74”

WEIGHT

710 LBS. (mower weight only) PTO shaft weighs an additional 39 lbs.

HP REQUIREMENTS

30-65 PTO horse power

CUTTING HEIGHT

Ύ”- 4” Adjustable to meet various height requirements

DECK PLATE MATERIAL THICKNESS

4 Gauge .25” structural Q235 roll formed steel for durability.

SIDE PLATE THICKNESS

1/4” .250” Structural Q235 roll formed steel for durability.

BLADE TYPES

Duckfoot or reversible Y-blades. Our duckfoot blades are 40cr, alloy structural steel. (American standard, AISI/SAE/ASTM steel no: 5140) and forged to a tapered wedge shape to avoid material buildup on the blades. Each blade weighs 1.85 lb. (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron) competitors use flat face blades. Side by side comparison of WoodMaxx exclusive duckfoot design: The reversible Y-blades are made from .33" 60si2mn, spring steel, (American standard: A29m) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil and weigh 1.75 lb. each. Use the duckfoot blades for clearing saplings (1" diameter or less), and the Y-blades for grasses.

NUMBER OF BLADES

22 Duck-foot or 44 Y- blades w/ 22 ctr blades between the Y (WoodMaxx exclusive)

PRECISION BLADE OVERLAP

The blades are staggered precisely with no gap in the mowing area. Blade overlap is important to achieve an even cutting result.

HINGED REAR GATE

This allows for easy inspection, cleaning, blade changing, and maintenance of your machine. The rear gate can also be left open for easier discharge in heavy conditions, or you can close the gate to greater mulching.

ROTOR ROTATION- REVERSE

The rotor spins in the opposite direction as the wheels of the tractor when traveling forward. This allows the blades to shear the material as it is folded forward by the mowers. The material is then thrown up and over the rotor.

ROTOR TUBE DIAMETER

4.25”- Heavy duty 5/16” wall tubing for long life.

BALANCED ROTOR TUBE

The rotor tube is balance to reduce vibration and ensures that the mower runs smooth, and reduces wear on the bearings.

BALANCED CAST IRON PULLEYS

The V-belt pulleys are heavy duty cast iron and balance to eliminate vibration, and run smooth.

ROTOR SWING DIAMETER-13.5”

Large swing so that the blades build required inertia.

ROTOR SHAFT SPEED

2160 RPM

BLADE SPEED

128 ft./sec – High tip speed = efficiency to cleanly cut material

HITCH TYPE

Category 1 standard 3 point or category 1 quick hitch – will attach to any cat 1- 3 point hitch and will also work with cat 1 quick hitch (except John Deere I-Match)

OFFSET FROM PTO CENTER

This feature allows for offset from center to the right of the tractor. This feature is helpful for mowing around fences, buildings; walkways etc. From the center of the PTO the mower extends 46” to the right and 33” to the left.

DRIVE BELTS

3 Total B-series USA gates “truflex” – we use only USA made gates belts on our flail mowers for long life. (easy to find SAE standard belt size BX39)

DRIVE BELT TENSIONER

Solid state automatic – this feature automatically adjust the belt tension so you don’t have to worry about slippage or overworking the belts. This feature greatly increases the belt life.

PTO SPEED

540 ONLY

GEARBOX RATING

Up to 55 hp. Heavy duty proven oil bath gearbox for long life.

GEARBOX TYPE

Cast iron 540 RPM with internal over-running clutch – when the PTO shaft is disengaged the built in over running clutch allows the PTO shaft to stop turning while the gearbox and rotor shaft slow down gradually. This is an important feature, without it, the gearbox will slam to a halt when the PTO is disengaged, causing stress to the gearbox and your tractor. This feature should not be overlooked when shopping for a mower.

REPLACEABLE SKID SHOES

The skid shoes reduce gouging are bolt on so you can adjust or replace them easily when the time comes.

Great mower May 31, 2016
Reviewer: Paul Badour from Davison, MI United States  
After much research in the flail mower market, I decided on the Woodmaxx FM-78.  It seemed to have all the features of the more mainstream brands but at a much more palatable price point.  It arrived in a sturdy metal shipping crate and the only assembly required was attaching the top link bracket with 8 bolts, cutting the PTO shaft to length and attaching it to the gearbox.  It was greased, oiled, and ready to use.  I hooked it up to my JD 4500 (39hp) and proceeded to mow a 3' tall hayfield.  It cut through the Michigan grasses easily and left a trail of mulch.  This mower is performing to my expectations and I consider it a good purchase.

FM78 Flail Mower November 6, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Dunlap, IL United States  
Wanted to switch to a flail mower in place of my finish mower & brush hog so I didn't have to switch back & forth.  Had made up my mind to buy a Caroni, but learned that they were out of stock until January (4-5 months?)  Did additional research & learned that WoodMaxx was now offering a flail.  I know their reputation on chippers & snowblowers, so after thinking it over I placed the order for an FM78.  I got excellent support and clear communications in the order & delivery process, and within 3 weeks had the new mower delivered, assembled (minor assembly), and running.  I've only run it for a few hours but am very impressed with the construction quality and the performance.  The offset is very handy and the belt tensioning system is excellent vs. competitive models. Thanks to Amanda and the rest of the staff at Woodmaxx for a great product and just as importantly, for making the order & delivery process very easy.  Looking forward to putting a lot more hours on this in the future.
