Flails are a lot safer to use because the do not throw things like a rotary mower. My brushhog mower has broken several car windows, dented a few fenders and put a rock clear into someones house. Through the siding, sheeting, insulation and sheet rock. I rarely use rotary now for these reasons. The flail also cuts better. I do have skid coupler on front and highly suggest you get one.
thanks for the info do you have any type of snow plow or pusher for yours?
