Land Pride Flail Mowers are the perfect choice for schools and other recreational areas when people may be present. The duck footed blade on the 21 Series gives a nice even cut and tapered ends on the rear roller prevent gouging during tight turns. With the FM21 Series rotor working in the opposite direction of travel, the cut grass is brought up and over the rotor. Most clippings are laid down prior to the mower passing it by, which means foreign objects also have a tendency to stay inside the mower and are less likely to be discharged. The FM21 Series offers a two position hitch for offsetting the mower, enabling closer cutting along buildings, fences or roadsides.
