RollerBlade Flail
Mower 30 inch
The BCS RollerBlade flail mower offered by APD Power Center in Phoenix
AZ can mow just about anything that will bend under the deck. Mowing
heights range from 1/2 inch to 2 1/2 inches. This mower is named the roller
blade due to the adjustable depth roller mounted underneath the machine. An
easy to use crank handle infinitely adjusts the cut height from 0.5 to 2.5 inches.

The adjustable roller prevents scalping when mowing over beds, ditches etc.

BCS offers two different models of flail mowers. Please see the pictures and
descriptions below.
Which flail mower should I buy? Pros and cons of the BladeRunner compared to
the RollerBlade mower on this page. Is your farm ground uneven or flat?

*Flat ground. I don't have to cross bumps and little ditches to get to the beds
*I'm fine with the 30 inch width mower. I don't need 24 or 35 inch
*I can live with a cutting height of
1/2 inch to a maximum of 2.5 inches
*I mainly mow cover crops instead of tall dense plants, such as corn stalks and
thick vines.
*I need to mow over V ditches
*I need the finest possible chop for green manure.
The Roller Blade mower may be your best choice

Compared to the Blade Runner mower pictured on this page
*I need the caster wheels to help transport the mower over uneven ground
*I need a 24 inch or a 35 inch mower instead of a 30 inch.
I need to cut down dense growth that is difficult to bend where a four
inch cutting height will help get the mower over tall stalks and vines.
*I need a cutting height of 4 inches.
*I need to process a lot of vegetation in a shorter period of time.
*I won't be mowing over the tops of ditches or furrows. (
see note)
Note: Blade runner can be equipped with an anti-scalp roller that prevents
scalping  when mowing over V ditches, raised beds etc.

Still undecided? The blade runner mower can be fitted fairly inexpensively
with an anti-scalp roller. This makes the blade runner very similar in performance
to the Roller blade. You still have the convenience of the caster wheels for easier
transport over uneven terrain.
