How to Choose the Right Embankment Flail Mower for Your Property

How to choose the right embankment flail mower for your property

When it comes to maintaining your property, a flail mower can be an essential piece of equipment. Specifically, an embankment flail mower is designed to handle steep slopes, ditches, and embankments. Choosing the right embankment flail mower for your property can be daunting, but this guide will help you make an informed decision.

Determine the type of embankment flail mower you need

There are three main types of embankment flail mowers available at

Standard Duty (EMSD)
Intermediate Duty (EMID)
Heavy Duty (EMHD)

Each type of embankment flail mower is designed for different terrains and levels of usage. Understanding the demands of your property will help you choose the appropriate mower.

Evaluate the size of your property and terrain

For smaller properties, consider the EMSD-48 or EMSD-56. These standard-duty models are suitable for less demanding tasks and smaller tractors.

For medium-sized properties, the EMID-64 or EMID-70 may be more suitable. These intermediate-duty mowers can handle steeper slopes and tougher vegetation.

For larger properties with more demanding terrain, consider a heavy-duty mower like the EMHD-78 or EMHD-86. These models are designed to tackle even the most challenging slopes and vegetation types.

Consider additional features

Some embankment flail mowers come with additional features such as side shift, mulching capabilities, or hydraulic systems. Depending on your needs, these features may be worth considering.

Check the compatibility with your tractor

Before purchasing an embankment flail mower, make sure it is compatible with your tractor. This includes checking the horsepower requirements, hitch type, and hydraulic system compatibility. You may find some useful information on tractor compatibility in The Ultimate Guide to Tractor Flail Mowers.

Read customer reviews and expert advice

To ensure you are making the right choice, read customer reviews and expert advice on embankment flail mowers. You can find valuable insights from other property owners who have experience with various models. Our blog features a wealth of information on different types of mowers and their uses.

Before operating your embankment flail mower, it is crucial to familiarize yourself with safety guidelines and operational best practices by reviewing the particular model’s user manual.  By following safety protocols and understanding the proper operation of your mower, you can reduce the risk of accidents and prolong the life of your equipment.

Consult with fellow property owners

Sometimes, the best advice comes from people who have faced similar challenges. Reach out to fellow property owners, farming communities, or online forums to seek their experiences and recommendations. Their insights can provide valuable information and help you make a more informed decision.

Very happy with my new Victory flail mower. I had a couple of minor fitment issues but nothing an angle grinder and a... drill couldn't fix. This mower is a beast weighing in over 1,000 lbs. Very heavy duty. I couldn't be happier especially when it was half the price of the name brands. The guys at Victory picked up the phone every time I called and were eager to answer my questions. Thanks Victory !read more

The EMID-70 embankment mower arrived in a metal cage on a wood pallet. The mower and accessories arrived in good... condition.The assembly was easy and straightforward. After assembly, all bolts and connections were verified tight and the gearbox was filled with 80W90 oil and all fittings greased. Hooking up to the tractor was made easy using the two parking stands that come with the unit. Once attached to the three point hitch the hydraulic hoses were connected using the hoses and fittings supplied. Once the hydraulic system was filled and the air bleed out it was time to work. The mower was ran for about 10 hours in all positions from 90 degrees up to 30 degrees down with no problems. After mowing the field the mower was used to trim the limbs that were encroching on the field.Suggestions for the shipping cage are add a middle bar between the upper and lower part of the cage and use locking bolts on the assembly as a few were loose or missing. The mower and accessories had shifted and fallen out and came on a wood pallet added bt the freight more

I bought an EMSD-56 Embankment Flail Mower Standard Duty. I pre-ordered it in February. This had to be one of the most... difficult years ever as China still had a zero covid policy. As soon as the mower was set to ship the port of Shanghai closed for over 2 months so delivery could not be made as agreed. I was offered a refund or an additional discount at that time. I opted for the additional discount. It took a while but finally the mower made it's way to me and it works fine. What I can say is that the team at this business is totally fair and extremely trustworthy. I would use them again for another more

Purchase of Flail mower was simple, arrived in good condition and assembly was straight forward. The only issue was it... was set up for Cat 2 rather than Cat 1 but that was handled quickly with a new set of pins which were mailed to me and arrived within 3 days. Mower has been used only once to mow about 2 acres and worked wellread more

The BX42S wood chipper was received in early March. The unit was packaged in a heavy cage to help prevent shipping... damage. After assembly I connected unit to my tractor and started using it.

I just recently purchased the MDWC1500 wood chipper from Victory Tractor for cleaning up around the overgrown fields of... our farm, arrived on time, setup was easy, very well built and rugged chipper! It has no problem chipping 3inch diameter brush. What a great investment for cleaning up around the farm! It did come with a damaged drive belt but a phone call to my local auto parts store and they had the belt in stock. For the price I highly recommend this machine to any small farm/homeownerread more
