With over 42 years of manufacturing experience in partnership with the Willibald company based in Germany, LIPA manufactures flail mowers and mulchers at their factory in Italy. All 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 25 years, only replacing flails/hammers and belts occasionally. LIPA has now manufactured over 25,000 flail mowers and mulchers worldwide, their quality and performance are hard to beat and they are priced less than many competitors.

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.
The range of Lipa TLF Flail Mowers/Shredders are designed to mow and shred grass, brush and trees up to around 2-3” in diameter within fields, fencerows, driveways and yards (larger diameter trees can be shredded, especially if its soft wood, but it will be slower). These flail mowers feature high quality construction, with safety chains and flaps to help control flying debris. The TLF range of Mowers/Shredders also feature heavy duty bearings at both ends of the rotor, in addition to both ends of the heavy-duty steel roller at the rear. The steel roller is height adjustable and sets the working height of the mower above the ground, to help it follow the ground contours.
The Lipa TLF-160 weighs around 1300 lb and has a 64″ cut width, so it’s designed for larger skid steer loaders, ideally those which weigh ideally between 5000 and 7,000 lb. The TLF-160 DOES REQUIRE around 20-23 gallons per minute of flow (at ideally 3000-3500 psi) and IT DOES REQUIRE A CASE DRAIN. The TLF-160 features 11 heavy duty toothed flails, with heavy duty mounts (see photos). The inside of the housing also features mulching teeth for better mulching (see images).
The Flail rotor is driven by a heavy duty Parker 60 Piston motor, using 4 heavy duty V belts. This flail mower comes complete with a standard skid steer hook-up. 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. They are available for an additional charge, complete with flat-face quick couplers. An OPTIONAL oscillating carriage is also available for an additional charge.
Always think safety when operating a flail mower/shredder! The TLF should ideally be used on skid steer loaders with a forestry package to protect the operator from flying debris. Keep all spectators at least 200 feet away and always lower the flail mower down onto the ground and shut the engine off before working on, or making adjustments to the flail mower.
