AF rough groundYou might be a groundsman, contractor, an estate owner, or a farmer but you have one thing in common. You use an ATV or UTV daily to maintain and deal with large areas of dense vegetation, long grass, brambles and bracken and that calls for a tough mower. One that will match up to expectations in terms of capability and durability in the face of the hard punishment it will receive.

Consider then the Wessex AF Series flail mowers. Self-engined they hitch straight onto the tow bar on your quad or UTV and go virtually anywhere you need to cut back vegetation. Into the woods and forest, along banks, around lakes and ponds, mulching through the toughest growth to clear areas at speed.

You can choose a side mounted (AF) or central mounted (AFC) engine option and 1.2m, and 1.6m working widths, with variants of wheel configuration. This offers a wide range of applications and a swiveling ball hitch satisfies the legal requirements of the British Health and Safety regulations.

A turn buckle on the drawbar levels the machine for an even cut and the drawbar can be offset to either side. In the standard version the 16 x 6.5 x 8 wheels and tyres sit on the end of the machine, in-line with the rotor, ensuring ground contours are followed accurately. The Wessex AF flail mowers have 5mm decks that are shot-blasted and powder coated to ensure their durability.

Power comes from an 18hp V-Twin engine, which is ample for demanding applications, with three high torque belts and a manual engagement clutch for efficient power transmission without overheating.

The mowers feature 'Y' pattern flails to challenge very long and dense vegetation. There's a rear anti-scalp roller to eliminate scalping in rough conditions and a front rubber flap contains any projectiles. Height adjustment is a simple screw adjustor and there is the option of flotation tyres. Put all these features together and the Wessex flail mowers make an ideal match every day for your ATV or UTV.
