NSK BRAND SHAFT BEARINGS
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.
410 lbs. (mower weight only) PTO shaft weighs an additional 39 lbs.
18-40 PTO horse power
3/4" - 4" Adjustable to meet various height requirements
DECK PLATE MATERIAL THICKNESS
3/16" .1875" Structural Q235 steel for durability.
SIDE PLATE THICKNESS
3/16" .1875" Structural Q235 steel for durability.
Hammer or reversible Y-blades. Our hammer 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 lb. 15 oz. (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron) competitors use flat face blades. The reversible Y-blades are made from .42" 60si2mn, spring steel, (American standard: A29m) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil. They weigh 1 lb. 7 oz. for the set. Use the hammer blades for clearing saplings (1" diameter or less), and the Y-blades for grasses.
NUMBER OF BLADES
18 Hammer or 36 Y-blades.
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.
ROTOR ROTATION - REVERSE
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 - 3"
3"- Heavy duty 5/16" wall
tubing for long life.
BALANCED ROTOR TUBE
The rotor tube is balanced to
reduce vibration and ensures that the mower runs smooth, and reduces wear on
BALANCED CAST IRON PULLEYS
The V-belt pulleys are heavy
duty cast iron and balanced to eliminate vibration, and run smooth.
ROTOR SWING DIAMETER - 10.75"
Large swing so that the blades
build required inertia.
ROTOR SHAFT SPEED
BLADE SPEED - 97 FT./SEC.
= Efficiency to cleanly cut material
Category 1 standard 3-point or
category 1 quick hitch - will attach to any category 1 3-point hitch and will also
work with cat 1 quick hitch. Not I-Match compatible (sorry!)
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 exc. From the center of the PTO the mower
extends 31" to the right and 24" to the left.
3 Total B-series USA gates
"truflex" - we use only USA made gates belts on our flail mowers for long life.
EASY DRIVE BELT TENSION
A single bolt on top of the mower is utilized to replace and provide tension to the belts.
Up to 45 hp. Heavy duty proven oil bath gearbox for long life.
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.
DRIVELINE / PTO SHAFT
1-3/8" 6 spline w/slip clutch.
GREASEABLE SHIELDED BEARINGS
Accessible greasable bearings
for easy maintenance.
REAR HEIGHT ADJUSTING ROLLER DIAMETER
4.25" With tapered ends - this
roller contacts the ground to ensure even cutting height. The ends of this
roller are rounded to eliminate gouging when turning corners. A scraper bar
ensures that mud and debris buildup is cleaned off as you go.
POWDER COAT FINISH
The rust resistant baked-on
powder coat finish is more durable than conventional paint to keep your machine
looking good for years.
