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 are based in Western Kentucky. We are the US distributor for LIPA and offer a range of different LIPA flail mowers and mulchers, in addition to most wearing parts and service items 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-200 weighs around 1500 lb and has a 79″ cut width, so it’s designed for larger skid steer loaders, with an oil flow of around 25 gallons per minute (at ideally 3000 psi) and IT DOES REQUIRE A CASE DRAIN. The TLF-200 features 13 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.
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.
