Flail Mower

FM21 Series flail mowers, new from Land Pride, work well for schools and other recreational areas when people may be present. It features a 1-inch cutting capacity, cutting heights from .75 to 4 inches, duck foot-type knives for an even cut and a two-position hitch for offsetting the mower, enabling closer cutting along buildings, fences or roadsides. Tapered ends on the rear roller prevent gouging during tight turns. The rotor works in the opposite direction of travel, so the cut grass is brought up and over the rotor.

Speedy Seeding

Redexim North America has introduced two new models of its dimpled seeder, the SpeedSeed 2100 and 2400. With operating speeds up to 7.5 mph, the redesigned models are equipped with individual cast spiker rings that enable the operator to make turns while in operation. The V-shaped spikes produce holes that funnel the randomly dispersed seed, concentrating them at the proper depth for best germination. The new high-volume seed box uses a proven roller design with quick-change gears, allowing the machine an infinite range of feed rates with all types of seed. Finishing up is a large roller that can be equipped with a second set of spiker rings, followed by the rear brush.

Get Reel

Jacobsen introduced the Classic XP 15-blade reel, designed for the Eclipse 100 walk-behind and Eclipse 322 ride-on mowers. By using the new reel, the desired frequency of clip and reel speed can be maintained, while operating mow speed can be increased up to 36 percent, substantially increasing productivity. The additional blades provide a tighter FOC, reducing stragglers and yielding a smoother surface. Classic XP reels stay true and maintain consistent rotation within their center point. They also feature Advanced Relief Technology with 45-degree relief, which delivers less wear and abrasion.
