FM-54 Flail Mower Hammer Blade Complete Set, Inc-(18) H-Blades, M12x50 Bolts, Nuts)
NSK is a leading bearing and motion control manufacturing company founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1916. Today NSK has several plants around the world including England, Germany, USA and Switzerland and by far one the best quality bearings available on the market today. Although these bearings are very costly, we feel that in an application with high load and dynamic forces such as a flail mower that such high quality bearings are required. These bearings are noticeably smoother, quieter, and cooler running than any competitor and far superior to any no-name brand. Some inferior bearings contain plastic interior ball cages that are susceptible to breakage from shock loads. Poor material and tolerances generate excessive heat that translates into premature bearing failure and even belt wear as the heat travel to the pulleys and the belts. All bearings are not created equal, and this is a feature that should not be overlooked when shopping for a flail mower.
410 lbs. (mower weight only) PTO shaft weighs an additional 39 lbs.
18-40 PTO horse power
3/4″ – 2.5″ Adjustable to meet various height requirements
3/16″ .1875″ Structural Q235 steel for durability.
3/16″ .1875″ Structural Q235 steel for durability.
Hammer or reversible Y-blades. Our hammer blades are 40cr, alloy structural steel. (American standard, AISI/SAE/ASTM steel no: 5140) and forged to a tapered wedge shape to avoid material buildup on the blades. Each blade weighs 1 lb. 15 oz. (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron) competitors use flat face blades. The reversible Y-blades are made from .42″ 60si2mn, spring steel, (American standard: A29m) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil. They weigh 1 lb. 7 oz. for the set. Use the hammer blades for clearing saplings (1″ diameter or less), and the Y-blades for grasses.
18 Hammer or 36 Y-blades.
The blades are staggered precisely with no gap in the mowing area. Blade overlap is important to achieve an even cutting result.
Reverse – the rotor spins in the opposite direction as the wheels of the tractor when traveling forward. This allows the blades to shear the material as it is folded forward by the mowers. The material is then thrown up and over the rotor.
3″- Heavy duty 5/16″ wall tubing for long life.
The rotor tube is balanced to reduce vibration and ensures that the mower runs smooth, and reduces wear on the bearings.
The V-belt pulleys are heavy duty cast iron and balanced to eliminate vibration, and run smooth.
Large swing so that the blades build required inertia.
High speed = Efficiency to cleanly cut material
Category 1 standard 3-point or category 1 quick hitch – will attach to any category 1 3-point hitch and will also work with cat 1 quick hitch.
This feature allows for offset from center to the right of the tractor. This feature is helpful for mowing around fences, buildings; walkways exc. From the center of the PTO the mower extends 31″ to the right and 24″ to the left.
3 Total B-series USA gates “truflex” – we use only USA made gates belts on our flail mowers for long life.
A single bolt on top of the mower is utilized to replace and provide tension to the belts.
Up to 45 hp. Heavy duty proven oil bath gearbox for long life.
Cast iron 540 RPM with internal over-running clutch – when the PTO shaft is disengaged the built in over running clutch allows the PTO shaft to stop turning while the gearbox and rotor shaft slow down gradually. This is an important feature, without it, the gearbox will slam to a halt when the PTO is disengaged, causing stress to the gearbox and your tractor. This feature should not be overlooked when shopping for a mower.
The skid shoes reduce gouging are bolt on so you can adjust or replace them easily when the time comes.
1-3/8″ 6 spline w/slip clutch.
Accessible greasable bearings for easy maintenance.
4.25″ With tapered ends – this roller contacts the ground to ensure even cutting height. The ends of this roller are rounded to eliminate gouging when turning corners. A scraper bar ensures that mud and debris buildup is cleaned off as you go.
The rust resistant baked-on powder coat finish is more durable than conventional paint to keep your machine looking good for years.

I have the FM54 flail mower mated to my Kubota B2601. I have only used the Y blades so far and this is an impressive machine. The finished field looks so much better than the old 4′ bush hog. I can’t wait to put on hammer blades and attack the honeysuckle.
I’m very, very pleased with the FM-54 flail mower. I received it yesterday, and completed setup today. I put 3-4 hours on the mower today, and the performance exceeded my expectations. I ordered the hammer blades, but used the installed Y-blades today to take care of some growth on my trails, and to clear an area with small brush and deep leaves in front of my house. The mower is quiet, and works great. I’m running it on a JD 2032R with iMatch quick hitch. The PTO shaft length was very close to perfect. I like the 54”width for mowing my forested areas, which are very tight. Great machine.
Have had the FM-54 attached to a Kubota 2301 for the whole summer. Has been very good with hammers. Got the quick hitch also which is a must for me.
I run mine on a Kabota B2320 and have charged through some pretty dense material with good results. Finished look is a rough cut as apposed to manicured. Impressed with good, solid construction and ease of attachment. Customer service was second to none making this a pleasant experience all around.
Received my FM-54 orange flail mower today. The metal packing crate is really nice. Assembly was easy and straightforward, and the PTO shaft did not require cutting. It took a some time to get the the lift height set, but once I found the sweet spot it worked so well. It runs super quiet, and my Kubota 26hp 19.5 pto hp runs it very well.
