NSK BRAND SHAFT BEARINGS

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

88.5"

CUTTING WIDTH

79"

WEIGHT

1243 lbs. (mower weight only) PTO shaft weighs an additional 39 lbs.

HP REQUIREMENTS

50-90 HP

CUTTING HEIGHT

3/4" - 4" Adjustable to meet various height requirements

DECK PLATE MATERIAL THICKNESS

1/4" structural Q235 roll formed steel for durability.

SIDE PLATE THICKNESS

3/8" Structural Q235 roll formed steel for durability.


BLADE TYPE

Optional duck-foot or reversible double Y- blades. WoodMaxx duck foot blades are made from 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 2.5 lbs. (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron) competitors use flat face blades. The reversible double Y-blades are made from .24" 60si2mn, spring steel, (American standard: A29m) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil and weigh 2 lbs. each. Use the duck-foot blades for clearing saplings (1" diameter or less), and the Y blades for grasses.

NUMBER OF BLADES

16 Duck foot blades or 16 double Y blades (32 Y-blades total)

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

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 - 5"

5"- Heavy duty 3/8" 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 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 - 15"

Large swing so that the blades build required inertia.

ROTOR SHAFT SPEED

2125 RPM

BLADE SPEED - 138 FT. /SEC.

High speed = efficiency to cleanly cut material

HITCH TYPE

Category 2 only. Not Quick Hitch Compatible.

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 57" to the right and 31" to the left.

DRIVE BELTS

Four 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 size BX49)

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 90 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.

REMOVABLE RAKES

The FM-88 is equipped with removable rakes. The purpose of these rakes is to keep the cut material inside the mower housing until it reduces enough to pass through the rakes. This provides for smaller discharged material. Additionally, the rakes can be adjusted up or down so that the tip of the rakes slightly "rake" material from the ground further mulching it. For quick mowing of heavy vegetation simply remove the rakes completely.

DRIVE-LINE / PTO SHAFT

1-3/8" 6 spline w/slip clutch. Comes standard with the machine.

GREASEABLE SHIELDED BEARINGS

Accessible greasable bearings for easy maintenance.

REAR HEIGHT ADJUSTING ROLLER DIAMETER6.5" 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.

FINISH-POWDER COAT

The rust resistant baked on powder coat finish is more durable than conventional paint to keep your machine looking good for years.

WARRANTY - 2 YEARS

A robust machine with an equally robust warranty.

5 of 5 FM-88 August 13, 2021
Reviewer: Ricky McPeak from College Grove, TN  
After researching several mowers, the WoodMaxx FM-88 was chosen not only because the design but WoodMaxx has a great warranty for their equipment. My order was placed on 7/13 and the mower was delivered the next week. Assembly was as described, simple and straightforward. The mower was ready to use in about an hour. The initial use of the FM88 was better than expected, this mower is much quieter than my rotary cutter and its cut is cleaner even though I was travelling faster than when using the rotary mower. The WoodMaxx FM88 does what I need it to do, cut the grass cleaner, faster with less residual left in the field. The first use was on about sixteen acres of mostly pasture grasses. In my opinion, if you are looking for one piece of equipment that can take the place of a rotary cutter and/or finish-type mower, then check out WoodMaxx Flail Mowers.
