  1. Mike Burke

    I’m very, very pleased with the FM-54 flail mower. I received it yesterday, and completed setup today. I put 3-4 hours on the mower today, and the performance exceeded my expectations. I ordered the hammer blades, but used the installed Y-blades today to take care of some growth on my trails, and to clear an area with small brush and deep leaves in front of my house. The mower is quiet, and works great. I’m running it on a JD 2032R with iMatch quick hitch. The PTO shaft length was very close to perfect. I like the 54”width for mowing my forested areas, which are very tight. Great machine.

    When I received my FM-54 I was quite impressed with the crating. All Angle iron, custom cut, drilled and bolted to fit this exact unit. Completely wrapped in plastic as well. The unit arrived with zero damaged and zero defects after a 1000+ mile freight trip. the set up is very straight forward and easy to do.

    My first cut proved to be very impressive. I did this with the FM-54 mated my TYM T264 with twenty-five engine HP and 18.3 at the PTO. My FM-54 came equipped with the hammer blades. Not once did I over tax my tractor while cutting. The FM-54 easily cut and mulched the the 6-10 foot scrub up to 1.5 inch diameter. with ease as well as topped off the saw palmetto. Just go slow and let the machine do its work. I set the height to the highest cut level to help prevent hitting any hidden stumps. The roller/skids did an excellent job guiding the mower over the terrain, especially in the saw palmetto where the roots cannot be seen. The smaller width of the FM-54 proved itself particularly useful in the tight spots in the trees. So far, I really love this mower. I cannot wait to get back out there.

    I’m running my FM54 with hammer blades on a John Deere 1025R. About 9 acres of my property is heavily wooded and just loaded with scrap brush that grows 3 to 6 feet in one season. I feel that I have been liberated because the FM54 absolutely destroys all the unwanted brush (and small fallen tree limbs) without me having to get off the tractor seat. The result is walking and 4-wheeler paths with a nice layer of mulch left behind that does not require any additional cleanup. Also, I haven’t run into anything that slows the mower down. It just chews it’s way through with no complaining. I wish I would have bought this sooner

    Have had the FM-54 attached to a Kubota 2301 for the whole summer. Has been very good with hammers. Got the quick hitch also which is a must for me.

  5. Peter Nasmyth

    I run mine on a Kabota B2320 and have charged through some pretty dense material with good results. Finished look is a rough cut as apposed to manicured. Impressed with good, solid construction and ease of attachment. Customer service was second to none making this a pleasant experience all around.

  6. Jeff Quick

    Received my FM-54 orange flail mower today. The metal packing crate is really nice. Assembly was easy and straightforward, and the PTO shaft did not require cutting. It took a some time to get the the lift height set, but once I found the sweet spot it worked so well. It runs super quiet, and my Kubota 26hp 19.5 pto hp runs it very well.

  7. Thomas Lloyd

    This mower does really well in long and short grass. It has far exceeded my expectations in the short amount of time I have used it. Joel in service has been awesome to work with as far as issues after the purchase and advice on maintenance. I will be looking to buy other Woodmaxx products in the future.

  8. Robert Gentry

    I’m running this flail mower on a 2018 JD 1025R. This is another great tool added to my arsenal. I have a 3 acre wooded area of my property that I keep mowed and I always dread the first cut of the year due to all the small limbs and sticks. Not anymore! I don’t have to pick everything with this beast!

  9. Andrew Stark

    I have used my FM-54 for over 25 hours now. I am extremely satisfied and impressed with it. I run the mower on a John Deere 1026R (rated 18 HP at PTO) using the hammer blades. I started by mowing the yard around the house to learn what the machine was doing and be closer to the barn for tools to make adjustments. The hammer blades provide such a good finish on lawn that I have continued to use this mower for a lot of the lawn. I have also cut moderate to tall and heavy field grass/weeds/vetch, berry cane, and young autumn olive (year old and more). In low range I have not had to slow down for anything less than very heavy growth. The cut and distribution of grass and vetch that was at the height of the tractor hood was very good. Second and subsequent cuts are pretty clean. The mower is closer to the tractor and lighter than a rotary I was using, so I can get into more places and maneuver better with far less demand on the tractor. Thanks for an outstanding product.
