PLEASE CONTACT US FIRST, BEFORE BUYING THE MOWER. THIS WILL ALLOW US TO HELP YOU BEST CONFIGURE THE MOWER ACCORDING TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS, IN ADDITION TO CONFIRMING AVAILABILITY OF THE REQUIRED MOUNTING BRACKETS (SOME MOUNTING BRACKETS ARE NOT AVAILABLE).
Please click the videos at the bottom for more specific information on the LIPA TLBE mowers designed to fit mini excavators.
The Lipa TLBE-120 flail mower is the largest of the range and weighs around 700 lb with a typical mount. It has a 48″ cut width, so it’s most suitable for larger mini excavators which ideally weigh between 11,000 and 14,000 lb. The TLBE-120 requires a minimum of 20 gallons per minute of auxiliary oil flow, at ideally 3000 psi. The TLBE-120 has 12 flails and 3 drive belts from the hydraulic motor pulley to the flail pulley.
This flail mower comes complete with a dedicated hook-up for most brands of mini excavator, but we prefer to discuss by phone or email ahead of purchase. IMPORTANT – Some excavators will require a custom-made bracket, these include Wain-Roy quick couplers and the Bobcat X-Change Couplers, and these will incur additional charges. As stated previously, please contact us ahead of purchasing, to allow us to help you configure and price the most suitable mower for your needs.
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.
Please see the videos below for more information. Two of them show the smaller TLBE-100 and the middle one shows the much smaller TLBE-90 (12″ smaller than TLBE-120).
The YouTube video below was specifically produced to cover “What to consider when buying a flail mower for a mini excavator“. While it does include larger flail mowers and larger mini-excavators, if you watch it from around 2.25 onwards – all of the principles discussed should help anyone who is looking to purchase a flail mower. These topics include auxiliary flow vs total flow, stability, features and benefits.
