flail mower

Definition - A general purpose mechanical chopping, chewing and mulching tool for trimming hedges but also for clearing and chopping up undergrowth and tough herbage on ditch and bank sides. Flail mowers\' tools rotate on an axis which is said (when not working !) either \"vertical\" (e.g. swipe fitted with blades or cutters) or \"horizontal\" (e.g. tractor-mounted flail fitted with Y-shape flails or hammers).
