PRODUCT DETAILS

FM-96H PTO Flail Mower with Hydraulic Side Shift

The WoodMaxx FM-96H PTO Flail mower with hydraulic sideshift is a versatile and high-performance agricultural equipment designed to efficiently maintain large areas of land. Equipped with a power take-off (PTO) system, it can be easily connected to a tractor’s PTO shaft, utilizing its power to drive the heavy-duty flail blades. The mower’s hydraulic sideshift feature allows operators to adjust the cutting position, enabling precise and effortless maneuvering around obstacles or along uneven terrain. With its robust construction, cutting width of 87 inches, and adjustable 1″-4″ cutting height, the WoodMaxx FM-96H provides reliable and consistent cutting results, making it an ideal choice for farmers, landowners, and landscaping professionals seeking a reliable and efficient flail mower.

NSK BRAND SHAFT BEARINGS

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. 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.

OVERALL WIDTH

WEIGHT

1351 lbs. (mower weight only) PTO shaft weighs an additional 39 lbs.

HP REQUIREMENTS

50-90 HP

DECK PLATE MATERIAL THICKNESS

1/4″ Q235 roll formed steel for durability.

SIDE PLATE THICKNESS

3/8″ Structural Q235 roll formed steel for durability.

BLADE TYPE

Optional hammer or reversible double Y-Blades. WoodMaxx hammer blades are made from 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 2.5 lbs. (cast steel is much more durable than cast iron) competitors use flat face blades. The reversible double Y-blades are made from .24″ 60si2mn, spring steel, (American standard: A29m) formed, heat treated, and quenched in oil and weigh 2 lbs. each. Use the hammer blades for clearing saplings (1″ diameter or less), and the Y-blades for grasses.

NUMBER OF BLADES

18 Hammer blades or 36 Y-blades

PRECISION BLADE OVERLAP

The blades are staggered precisely with no gap in the mowing area. Blade overlap is important to achieve an even cutting result.

 

ROTOR ROTATION – 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.

ROTOR TUBE DIAMETER – 5″

5″- Heavy duty 3/8″ wall tubing for long life.

BALANCED ROTOR TUBE

The rotor tube is balanced to reduce vibration and ensures that the mower runs smooth, and reduces wear on the bearings.

BALANCED CAST IRON PULLEYS

The V-belt pulleys are heavy duty cast iron and balance to eliminate vibration, and run smooth.

ROTOR SWING DIAMETER – 15″

Large swing so that the blades build required inertia.

ROTOR SHAFT SPEED

2125 RPM

BLADE SPEED – 138 FT. /SEC

High speed = efficiency to cleanly cut material

HITCH TYPE

Category 2 only. Not Quick Hitch Compatible.

HYDRAULIC SIDE-SHIFT OFFSET

Shifted left (39.5″L/57″R), shifted right (26″L/71″R) – This feature allows for variable offset from center to the right of the tractor. This feature is helpful for mowing around fences, buildings, walkways, etc. NOTE: Requires rear hydraulic remotes on tractor. We cannot supply these if your tractor does not already have them, they must be dealer or factory installed. (Hose ends that connect to the tractor are fitted with 1/2-14 NPTF threads, you will have to provide the corresponding fittings to complete the connection to your tractor.)

DRIVE BELTS

Four (4) Total B-series USA gates “truflex” – we use only USA made gates belts on our flail mowers for long life. (Easy to find SAE standard belt size BX49)

DRIVE BELT TENSIONER

Solid state automatic – this feature automatically adjust the belt tension so you don’t have to worry about slippage or overworking the belts. This feature greatly increases the belt life.

PTO SPEED

540 ONLY

GEARBOX RATING

Up to 90 hp. Heavy duty proven oil bath gearbox for long life.

GEARBOX TYPE

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.

REPLACEABLE SKID SHOES

The skid shoes reduce gouging are bolt on so you can adjust or replace them easily when the time comes.

DRIVE-LINE / PTO SHAFT

1-3/8″ 6 spline w/slip clutch (included).

GREASEABLE SHIELDED BEARINGS

Accessible greasable bearings for easy maintenance.

REAR HEIGHT ADJUSTING ROLLER DIAMETER

6.5″ 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.

REMOVABLE RAKES

The FM-96H is equipped with removable rakes. The purpose of these rakes is to keep the cut material inside the mower housing until it reduces enough to pass through the rakes. This provides for smaller discharged material. Additionally, the rakes can be adjusted up or down so that the tip of the rakes slightly “rake” material from the ground further mulching it. For quick mowing of heavy vegetation simply remove the rakes completely.

POWDER COAT FINISH

The rust resistant baked on powder coat finish is more durable than conventional paint to keep your machine looking good for years.

2 YEAR PARTS WARRANTY

A robust machine with an equally robust warranty.

SERVICE

At WoodMaxx our service department is staffed with professional certified technicians that inspect each machine before it is shipped. This ensures that you get a trouble free machine from the get go. When you need technical help or parts, our courteous staff can help you get what you need from our fully stocked warehouse.
