With over 40 years of manufacturing experience in partnership with the Willibald company based in Germany, LIPA now manufactures high quality flail mowers and mulchers in their factory in Italy. LIPA products are well designed and manufactured using the latest CAD/CAM 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 extensively used LIPA flail mowers and mulchers for over 20 years, only replacing flails/hammers and belts occasionally. The LIPA company has now manufactured over 20,000 flail mowers and mulchers worldwide, and their performance is hard to beat.

Our company is Needham Ag Technologies, LLC and we have been in business since 2006. Our company is based in Western Kentucky and we strive to offer the best product knowledge in the industry. We first purchased a Lipa flail mower for our own use in 2018, and became the US distributor in 2019. We offer a range of different LIPA flail mowers and mulchers, in addition to most parts at our warehouse.


Please click the videos at the bottom for more specific information on the LIPA TLBE-50, in addition to other LIPA TLBE mowers designed to fit mini excavators. 


The Lipa TLBE-50 flail mower is designed to fit smaller mini excavators (ideally heavier than 4000 lb), to mow (and mulch) grass, shrubs, brush and small trees, up to around 1″ in diameter (cutting larger diameter soft wood is possible, especially if your slow). The TLBE 50 has a 21″ cut width, weighs around 420 lb (with a typical mount) and requires at least 8 gallons of auxiliary flow per minute. 


The TLBE series is often used on ditch banks, around property lines and lakes, often in areas too steep (or too unsafe) to mow with zero-turn mowers, or rotary mowers on tractors/skid steer loaders. 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 tube, with heavy duty bearings which feature good seals at both ends to keep wrapping debris from entering the bearings. Each TLBE flail mower comes with heavy duty flails, which are made from wear resistant materials. The steel roller at the back is adjustable (to set the mowing height above the ground), and helps avoid flails digging into the soil (to extend flail life). For more information on the TLBE range of mowers and to see their heavy duty construction, please click the YouTube video below.

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.

The YouTube video below was specifically produced to cover “What to consider when buying a flail mower for a mini excavator“.  While it does utilize larger flail mowers and larger mini-excavators for the discussion, 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.
