With over 40 years of flail mower and mulcher manufacturing experience in partnership with the Willibald company based in Germany, LIPA now manufactures high quality mowers and mulchers in their factory in Italy. LIPA products are well designed and manufactured, using the latest technologies which include laser cutting and robot welders. All LIPA products use high quality materials which stand the test of time, in fact some customers have used the same LIPA mowers for over 20 years, only replacing flail hammers and belts occasionally.
The range of Lipa TLBE flail mowers is designed for small to large mini excavators, to mow grass, shrubs, brush and small trees, up to around 1″ in diameter. This range of flail mowers is often used around fences, ditch banks, lakes and highways, in areas which are often too difficult, or too unsafe to mow with zero-turn mowers, or rotary mowers on tractors. The TLBE flail mowers feature high quality construction and materials, with safety chains and rubber flaps to help control flying debris. The range of TLBE flail mowers come standard with a heavy duty rotor with heavy duty bearings with good seals at both ends. Each TLBE flail mower comes with heavy duty flails, which are made from very wear resistant materials. The steel roller at the back is adjustable (to set the mowing height above the ground), plus it helps the mower follow the ground contours and avoid it digging into the soil.

The Lipa TLBE-100 flail mower weighs 510 lb and has a 41″ cut width, so it’s suitable for mini excavators which ideally weigh 9000 lb or more. The TLBE-100 requires 11-15 gallons per minute of oil flow, at ideally 3500 psi. So, you will likely require 20-25 gallons per minute of total flow to use the arm or slewing functions on most mini excavators while mowing. Some of the newer mini excavators within the 9000+ lb class have a primary AND secondary hydraulic pump, so the secondary circuit (which powers the mower) is not affected by arm, slewing or travel functions. These options are preferred, especially on the smaller mini excavators. The TLBE-100 has 10 flails and 3 drive belts from the hydraulic motor pulley to the flail mower pulley.
This flail mower comes complete with a dedicated hook-up, built to connect to your specific mini excavator model, but we prefer to discuss by phone or email ahead of purchase to make sure your mounting bracket is available. For example, some less common mini excavator models may need a custom made bracket, especially those with quick-hitch style couplers. Please note this flail mower does not come with hydraulic hoses, as we don’t know the fittings or lengths required to fit your machine. Also, this mower does not come with pins to mount the flail mower to your excavator, you should already have pins to mount your bucket, so you can use the same pins.
If it says “out of stock” please contact us to see when more will be available. We plan to have most of the common models in stock all the time, so they may be shipped and available soon.
Always think safety when operating a flail mower! Be sure to use the mower on a mini excavator with a cab, or add a front window or screen that sufficiently protects you from flying debris. Always keep spectators at a safe distance and always shut the engine down before working on, or making adjustments to the mower.
