    It's a Bomford Turner head and Brim also had something to do with it.
    Less than 20 hours on the unit.

    That mower is way too small. I think you would be unhappy with what it couldn't do.

    I wasn't clear enough. The frame on that mower looks weak. A flail mower gets a lot of abuse. It needs to be sturdy. Unless you have specific job that will pay for that mower completely i wouldn't buy it. There is a reason it is sale priced with low hours.

    Any mower on a skid would be disapointing that it wasnt on a mini X instead.

    FWIW it has a hydraulic damper which has proven to be rugged enough.
    The reason for sale is I bought it to rent. It's not renting so down the road it goes. I just wish I was as smart as all of you experts.
