Chapman Machinery has launched a new model in the FM Flail Mower range, the FM PRO. Boasting a 23hp, fuel injected Honda V-Twin iGX700 engine, the FM PRO enters new territory in the ATV flail mower market for extreme power and reliability while maintaining better fuel efficiency versus traditional carburettor models.
The FM Series Flail Mowers’ range by Chapman Machinery Ltd are designed to tackle tough mowing tasks including mowing on rough, wet and boggy ground where a heavier mounted units are unsuitable. Built to be exceptionally tough, yet have a low ground pressure for easy towing, the FM Series Flail Mowers can go where other machines cannot, and comes in 1.2m & 1.5m cutting widths with a variety of secondary options for commercial or specialised use.
The FM PRO models are fitted with forged hammer flails as standard, proven to cope with the most demanding growth, with a cleaner, more reliable cut.
The Honda iGX700 offers excellent fuel efficiency due to the electronic control system which continually monitors and adjusts the engines air to fuel ratio according to operating conditions and engine load, while maintaining optimal performance. This results in excellent fuel efficiency and low emissions – so good, that in product trials the fuel efficiency was typically 10-12% better than the previous model.
The benefits don’t end there – along with Honda’s legendary quality and reliability, the upgraded engines minimise starting issues in a range of conditions and are less susceptible to poor quality fuel, making them even more efficient. This means lower fuel consumption, less maintenance costs and less downtime – important factors when choosing which machine is right for you.
