We have a Land Pride FM2572 flail mower available to borrow or rent, depending on what you will be using it for. The flail has a 72” cutting width with hammer knives and cutting height of 0-6”. A 42-80 HP tractor is needed to run the flail. This piece of equipment is especially well suited for terminating cover crops and prepping existing ground cover for no-till seeding with the PCD’s no-till drill.
Check out these videos highlighting flail mowing as a method to terminate cover crops and manage residue.
The drill is available free of charge for cover crop applications if you are able to transport the mower using your own trailer from Jennings Equipment of Puyallup. Jennings will not load the mower into truck beds. Alternatively, Jennings is able to deliver the flail mower to farms. See below for Jennings Equipment delivery fees for select cities.
Buckley: $222 Gig Harbor: $244 Orting, Puyallup, Sumner, Tacoma: $178
Roy, Graham: $266 Eatonville: $360
For uses outside of cover crop related projects, the mower can be rented for $15/day or $25/weekend, plus Jennings Equipment delivery fees if you are not able to transport the mower using your own trailer.
Contact Alison Nichols, 253-845-9770, ext. 132 for more information about the flail mower or to borrow or rent the mower.
