I bought one of these for casual use. The price is right and it works good but the shear pin is a little whimpy. Find one with a slip clutch.

The worst part about that design is when trying too push trees over it does not have a push bar so you use the mower deck or you have too raise the mower at every tree. . The open fronts with a push bar eliminate that problem. Your only talking about another 600 dollars for the open front design so not really that big a deal.

I believe they offer the push bar design for the same price.

I bought a Loftness flail mower 72" for my skid steer about 10 years ago. The hydraulic motor on it requires 16 gpm and 2500 psi. It will cut up to 2" trees down. Not only will it cut it mulches everything into very fine pieces. It is great for areas around ponds or very steep slopes. I don't use it very often but for things like vines and wild rose bushes it works great. It leaves the jobsite very clean. No trash to clean up.

flail mowers are nice but you can not move along very fast with them. We are all about getting in completing the work and getting out. Time is money!
