AF-160 Flail Mower 1.6m
The bigger brother to the popular AF-120, the AF-160 1.6m flail mower is constructed with the same robust features, but has a deck which is 1.6m wide. Perfect for mulching through dense vegetation and maintaining forestry areas, the AF range of flail mowers are built like a tank!
AF-160 Flail Mower 1.6m
Designed to perfectly complement the versatility and 'go-anywhere' ability of ATV's and UTV's these flails are built to perform in demanding conditions - year after year.
Wheel options - AF & AFC flail mowers are available with four variations of wheel configurations, not only to suit any application but also to satisfy the legal requirements of the British HSE.
The standard version comes with 16x6.5x8 tyres on the end of the machine, in-line with the rotor, to ensure ground contours are followed accurately.
In this configuration the machine is very well balanced and the weight on the drawbar is minimal, which makes hitching to the quad an easy operation.
For use in boggy and wet conditions, the optional 22x11x8 flotation tyres are recommended.
Rear wheel option - if the machine is required to cut close to fences & borders, or the overall width is critical because of narrow access, the rear wheel option is available on the 1.2m version.
With the wheels behind, significant weight is transferred onto the drawbar, therefore the user must check the drawbar capacity of the towing vehicle.
When fitted with rear wheels, the AF has a screw jack on the drawbar to aid connecting to the towing vehicle.
Key features -
High quality flail mowers designed for use with ATVs and UTVs
AFC series feature a centrally mounted engine as opposed to the AF side mounted engine
Available in sizes 1.2m, 1.5m and 1.6m working widths
Four variants of wheel configuration
Positive manual drive engagement for high performance and long-life
Three Z-section drive belts for maximum cutting power - Drive is transmitted to the rotor via 3 high performance Z section belts, and a manual clutch. In rough work and dense material, this system is more efficient than a centrifugal clutch & allows the mower to cope with more demanding conditions
5mm steel plate deck for durability & strength
Remote engine stop switch - to comply with H&S regulations all Wessex AF & AFC mowers are fitted with a remote engine kill switch. This ensures that the mower engine can be stopped instantly without the operator needing to leave his seat.
Cutting height range of between 10mm - 160mm
Heavy duty Y-pattern flails mulch material, before evenly distributing debris across the full width of the machine
Simple screw-handle cutting height adjustment - by a simple screw handle mechanism at the rear which alters the position of the wheels, whilst a turnbuckle on the drawbar levels the machine at the desired cutting height.
Adjustable drawbar to allow mower to be offset for cutting to one side of ATV, this is particularly useful when mowing to an edge.
Swivelling ball hitch for increased safety this is a standard fitment. This is a legal requirement of the HSE.
Anti-scalp roller - The full width adjustable anti-scalp roller takes the weight of the machines to eliminate scalping, should a wheel drop into a rut.
