Flails

Kubuta with flail

What is the difference between a flail and a mulcher?

Honestly, not a lot. The term ‘flail’ tends to be used when referring to our smaller range of flails where grass cutting/hedge trimming is intended. ‘Mulcher’, however, is used on the larger, heavier duty attachments when used to cut brambles, branches and saplings. The two terms are largely interchangeable.

Will your flails/mulchers suit my machine?

We have an option to suit most machines and have many hydraulic attachments working around the country on excavators, skidsteers and mini loaders of all shapes and sizes. We endeavour to find the right fit for you so speak to a member of our sales team who can advise the most suitable attachment for your machine and your needs. More advice is offered here.

Are they supplied ready to use?

We offer the option of a custom made bracket, fabricated in-house, with your hydraulic attachment to suit your excavator and supply of pipes and couplings so that your order really is ready to ‘plug and play’. Just ensure that your excavator is switched to work in single acting mode not double acting.

Do I need a drain line?

No. Our flails can run off just 2 hoses so there is no need for a drain line. They come with an anti-cavitation block of valves/flow control system that stops any spike in pressure or sudden stoppage from damaging the excavator/motor.

Can I track and cut?

Yes, but first of all your excavator must have enough oil flow capacity to perform both actions; therefore it is important to combine the right flail with the right excavator. Some excavators automatically cut the oil flow when you try to perform both actions. In these cases the solution is to have a priority valve installed on your machine to ensure that oil flow to the auxiliary line isn’t restricted.

What type of blades/rotor do I need?

The 2 standard types for smaller flails are Y-shape blades and hammer blades. Y-shape blades are best for leaving a clean cut for neater hedgerows, whilst hammer blades are for more heavy duty, robust clearing.  When it comes to flails and mulchers for bigger excavators (6 Ton or more) we also have the possibility of fitting a forestry rotor with swinging hammers or with fixed teeth.

Concrete Mixing Buckets

Concrete mixing buckets

Why should I choose a mixing bucket over a pan mixer?

Our Concrete Mixing Buckets have a special auger design that pushes the mixture towards the centre of the bucket providing a perfect mix of concrete. This ‘forced’ mixing means better quality concrete compared with that of pan mixers which work with a system where the concrete falls from the sides of the bucket into the mixer. Our mixing buckets are self loading meaning you don’t have to leave the comfort of the cab. They also enable you to dispense concrete where you need to by either tipping or through the hydraulically controlled discharge outlet at the base of the bucket, which can be activated from the cab with the installation of an electric switch (sold separately). For even more precise placement a hose is supplied to direct the flow of concrete into your desired destination.

Why should I choose your mixing bucket?

Our mixing buckets are incredibly durable and robust thanks to the high quality HARDOX® used to make them. The HARDOX® In My Body sign proves that it has passed a strict criteria of welding, design and manufacturing process. Our concrete mixing buckets also have replaceable paddles, meaning a new set can be welded on if needed after a few years wear and tear.

I only have a telehandler. Can I still have a mixing bucket?

Absolutely! Our mixing buckets are available for excavators, skid or wheel loaders or telescopic handlers. Just call a member of the sales team and we will ensure you choose the right sized bucket and the right bracket for your machine.
