turner 30" flail mower
« on: April 26, 2014, 11:52:56 pm »
Spent a few hours yesterday and today stripping the shaft off my flail mower, as the bearing case broke on one side. All parts ordered ready to get it up and running, ready to tame the overgrowth on my recently purchased land.

Wooo hooo

New parts fitted and it works a treat I will go as far as to say I will be able to do without buying a tractor and topper now.

Hi Veg,
Where did you get parts from? must be a common complaint as i need shaft bearings and one Aluminum bearing cup.Before the bearing collapsed it was an awesome machine

I looked at the bearings for the number on them mine being FL205 then just did a search for them online. Cant remember the exact place but the full bearing was £8 each so I replaced both on the flail shaft. You have to specify the shaft diameter.
Mine had a few flails missing when I bought it and that caused my bearing to fail.

It is I am well pleased. I was surprised at how neatly it cuts grass as well. It has transformed the field in a short space of time.
