Flail Collectors

 

MAJOR MJ27-155 Flail Collector

The MJ27-155 flail collector is designed specifically for maximum output and a high quality finish for small compact tractors.
This flail collector is perfect for cutting and collecting on all types of grass from lawns to conservation areas. It can be used during autumn to pick up leaves, litter and even hedge clippings.
The robust yet light weight construction allows for safe use on compact tractors. The design allows for use in situations where overall height is an important consideration and is ideal for use in orchards where overhanging branches are an issue.

FEATURES:
• Rear roller and heavy duty flail blades
• Castor wheels
• Optional scarifying kit available

 

MAJOR Green Bee Flail Collector

This a medium duty flail collector and allows mowing, scarifying, collecting, chopping and rolling all in one pass.  This machine is suitable for use in many environments including sports and golf grounds, pastures, airports, airfields, paddocks, camp sites and public and private parks. The grass can be collected and disposed of using the large capacity collector. The discharging height is 2.2m.

FEATURES:
• Two working widths; 1.6m and 1.8m
• Heavy duty flail blades supplied as standard
• Optional scarifying kit available to aerate the ground in a single pass

MAJOR MJ2000 Heavy Duty Flail Collector

The MAJOR MJ2000 Flail Collector is designed to perform even in the most extreme conditions and is suitable for use with larger compact and agricultural type tractors. The floating linkage allows the machine to follow the ground contours ensuring a perfect finish.

The cutting head lifts and locks in position giving the operator 250mm ground clearance for safe road transportation.  The 3m³ capacity hopper has a tipping height of 2m, which allows the collected material to be easily deposited in any trailer. The MJ2000 is fitted with BKT turf tyres to keep turf compaction to a minimum. The cutting height can be adjusted from 12mm – 150mm. Heavy duty hammer blades are fitted as standard. The blades are designed to propel the cut material into the hopper even in the wettest conditions.

The MAJOR MJ2000 has a safety locking arm to facilitate easy and full access to the blades and rotor during routine maintenance. These machines are used extensively by local authorities, golf courses, heath land management programmes and conservation schemes where the cutting and collection of material is required and is particularly suited to working in scrub, heather, bracken and gorse.

MJ2000 Standard Features:
• Wide angle auto reset PTO shaft
• Highway LED EU specification lighting
• Independent floating cutting deck
• BKT turf tyres to keep turf compaction to a minimum
• Cutting deck transport lock

Testimonials


Our company is one of the largest of its kind in the UK and our land management style and approach has won us many industry accolades for doing the job right. We generally cut the short grass areas on a once-a-week basis, but the rough areas may have a trim just a couple of times a year. We used to have a system which was labour and equipment intensive because it required two passes to cut and then collect clippings. We changed to a one-pass machine six years ago, the Major Green Bee, which is a ‘one-point-six-metre’ mounted flail mower with a collector box. It’s proven to be absolutely the right choice.

Ian Humble, Contracts Manager, Out There Services (formally The Landscape Centre)

We mow somewhere around 200 – 300 hectares of bracken each year with our Major MJ2000 Flail Collector. The machine is good, it’s very easy to use. The tipping function is very simple. It’s just a pull of one lever to tip and reverse of the function to set everything back into working motion. The system for lifting the flails out of contact with the ground for transportation is again very simple. It’s got good capacity. We’ve managed to pick up a fair amount of material before we have to empty it.
