  • This ACMA Flail Mower Has 20 Very Large Forged & Hardened Steel Hammer Blades - ACMA Flail Mowers Always Have the Highest Population of Blades To Provide The Best Possible Cut & Reduce The Burden on Your Tractor!
  • ACMA Mower Gearboxes Include An Over-Running Clutch, Which Provides Two Advantages:
    • First, Easy Alignment & Attachment Of The Mowers PTO Shaft To The Tractors PTO Shaft:
      • The O.R. Clutch Enables You To Freely Spin The PTO Shaft & Gearbox For Alignment!
    • Second, Smooth Shut Down:
      • The O.R. Clutch Allows The Mower Gearbox To Free Wheel To A Stop, Eliminating Abrupt Shutdowns & Premature Wear Of The PTO Brake!
  • Offset & Head Positioning Functions Operate Hydraulically.
  • 'Raise & Lower Cylinder' Has Three Unique Features For Performance Efficiency, For Mechanical Protection Of The Mower, And For Operator Safety:
    • 1) Adjustable Flow Control Valve For Hydraulic Speed Control:
      • Prevents Shock Loads From Operators Abrupt & Rapid Downward Deck Rotation (then hammering our precious earth), Or Abrupt & Rapid Upward Deck Rotation (then hammering the mechanical connections):
        • Set This Valve To A Slower Setting Until You've Mastered Feathering The Controls To Rotate The Deck 90° Upward, Or 60° Downward! Once You've Got It, You Can Adjust The Flow Control Valve For Faster Operation!
    • 2) Horizontal (Left to Right) Mower Deck Oscillation For Automatic Contour Adjustment:
      • The Cylinder Barrel Is Pinned To A Clevis Bracket, Which Is Secured To The Mower Deck Via A Bracket With An Oval Pin Opening For Oscillation Travel.
    • 3) Safety Locking Valve For More Personnel & Equipment Safety!
  • Dual Breakaway (Hyd & Mech) Limited & Self-Resetting:
    • Mechanical Breakaway:
      • Lower Right Rear Of 3-Pt Frame Has A Removable Pin For 'Lock-In-Place' Operation (when mowing level, predictable terrain), Or Remove The Pin For Limited & Self-Resetting Breakaway Protection - Also For Front To Rear Deck Oscillation (for following uneven terrain).
    • Hydraulic Breakaway:
      • The 'Extend & Retract Cylinder' Has A Relief Valve For Limited & Self-Resetting Breakaway.
  • A Large Deck Enclosure Accommodates Higher Volumes Of Material For Superior Finish Results, Superior Mulching Results, Less Burden Transferred To The Tractor & Better Ground Speeds. It's Also Large Enough For The Rear Roller To Be Within The Footprint Of The Deck (instead of protruding out beyond the back).
  • Under Deck 'Mulching Counter Blade' Ensures Reduction of Larger Clippings & Further Reduces the Smaller Ones.
  • Full Double Deck Shell Protects the External Shell From Rocks & Other Internal Projectiles:
    • Total Deck Thickness Is 5/16"!
    • Side Plates Are Also 5/16" Thick!
  • Large 6-1/4" Dia. Rear Roller Provides Mower Deck Suspension & Cutting Height Adjustment (1/2"-5").
  • Rear Roller Also Includes a Full Width Rubber Deflector & Mud Scraper.
  • Dual Top Link Pin Holes:
    • One Oval For (more) Front to Rear Deck Oscillation.
    • One Standard Round Hole for Rigid & Level Deck Suspension.
  • With The External Gearbox & Unique Hitch Configuration Of ACMA Mowers, Expect To Get The Most Right Side Reach Possible!.
  • Multiple Advantages Of This Offsetable Mower Over Static, Center Mounted 3-Point Mowers:
    • If You're Mowing Along Fencelines, Treelines, Building, Etc., Instead Of Getting Your Entire Tractor Along Side Of The Fence Or Building (and risk scraping your Tractor tires or snagging & damaging trees, posts, fencing, buildings, etc.), You Can Simply Keep The Offset Part Of The Mower Close To The Edges You Want To Mow And Prevent Damage To The Tractor Or Trees, Fencing, Walls, Etc. Snagging Posts, Trees Or Other Secured Objects Can Also Damage The 3-Point Linkage On The Mower Or Even The Pull Arms & Top Link Of Your Tractor.
    • Much, Much Better Visibility: If The Edge Of Any Mower Is Flush With The Sidewall Of Your Tractors Tire, Forget About Visibility! You Will Be Cutting With Your Tractor Tire As A 'Guide', Which is OK In Open Areas, But Again, When You Are Mowing Up Against Obstacles, You Want Visibility, And The Offset Feature Will Provide That. It Will Also Eliminate The Need To Look Back Over Your Shoulder To See The Mower Deck. A Simple Glance To Your Right Gives You Visibility Of The Outer Mowing Edge.
  • The Multi-Purpose Characteristic of ACMA Flail Mowers Provides a 'Rough Cut' That's Superior to Any 'Rotary Rough Cut Mower', and a 'Finish/Manicure Cut' That's Superior to Any 'Rotary Finish Mower'! Plus with the 'Forged & Hardened' Hammer Blades, You Can Cut 4" Diameter Material & Still Get A Superior Finish Cut Too!
  • ACMA Flail Mowers Are The Safest & Most Efficient Mowers Available:
    • With ACMA Flail Mowers, The Possibility Of Discharging Dangerous Projectiles Is Dramatically Reduced Compared To Conventional Rotary Mowers, And With The Reduced Deck Depth & Weight, They're The Easiest For You & Your Tractor To Handle! Plus, The Superior 'Single-Pass' Cut Of ACMA Flail Mowers Provides New Efficiencies By Eliminating Multiple Passes For Excellent Results!
