Wessex ProLine - Model FRX-150 - Out-Front Flail Mower
The latest addition to the Wessex ProLine family is the new FRX-150 front mounted flail mower designed to suit most leading brands of out front power units with PTO drive. Designed to withstand serious contractors use, the FRX-150 is a perfect match for the highly maneuverable power units so popular with the council and local authority contractor. Neat and compact in design, the FRX-150 is close-coupled to the power unit minimising weight on the linkage, and the ContiFlow deck design ensures maximum suction effect for tackling long or short growth efficiently giving a superb finish in any application. A flail mower is far more versatile than a rotary mower, as it will not only leave a good finish on short grass, but long growth due to reduced cutting cycles can also be mown effectively leaving a far superior cut quality than a rotary mower, which can leave unsightly swathing of cut grass.
