    Flail Mower for Quad

    We manufacture atv flail mowers so I would naturally push our units over the competition as we genuinely believe them to be the best specification and overall value. Having said that any of the British manufactured products will stand you in good stead over the imported units. Our 1.2m flail has...

    Roller Shutter door Recommendations please for the South ideally

    We have 5 roller shutters of a similar size. Three done by Avon doors which work well. One by P&K which never worked correctly and had to be re-wired by our electrician to get the emergency stop and safety edge to work. Can't remember where the fifth one came from! On that width I would...

    Electric snacker options?

    If it's easier for you we can send up a replacement front panel from the control box (which contains the circuit board), so then it can be swapped without having to remove the snacker wiring loom from the ATV. Send me a PM with your details or call the office and we can sort. I don't know the...

    Electric snacker options?

    Our electronics supplier loaded the wrong program onto some of the control boards which counts 1 short, if you call the office when you've time in the week we will swap out for a unit which is correct. Thanks, James

    If you hold in the up button it will cycle to 100 drops in 9 seconds.

    Electric snacker options?

    Again we discussed this a lot when we designed the electronics and the decision was made that for speed it would be easier to do it in multiples of 5, so each individual press increases the count by 5 or holding the button in cycles it up quickly in multiples of 5, thereby making it easier to...

    Electric snacker options?

    If you're using the countdown function then yes, you can only preset it in multiples of 5. We set it like that in the program as otherwise it's too much faff to get to the right figure every time. You can run it in count up mode (starting from zero and running upwards) though to get the exact...

    Electric snacker options?

    Hi Iain, I'd like to get this resolved as they're by and large a very reliable machine, most issues will be around corrosion in the plug / socket or cabling to the machine having mechanical damage. We have seen a number of faults on machines in the past where the cable has been 'pinched'...

    Electric snacker options?

    The real benefit of moving from manual to electric is repeatability and ease of use. Once you've set up the drop size to an easy multiple (say 2kg or 2lb), you can set the required number of drops per field or group and know that the machine will drop that amount of feed and then automatically...

    IB Flail Mower Blowing Grey Smoke and Tensioner Belt Snapped

    In order to get the full Honda warranty approval, which we have, you need a means of disconnecting the drive on start up and ideally a means of overload protection, so you're essentially left with a centrifugal clutch, or an electromagnetic clutch. We currently use the former, and have invested...

    IB Flail Mower Blowing Grey Smoke and Tensioner Belt Snapped

    To extrapolate on our manual wording a bit more - the idle speed on the GX630 we fit is 1,400 RPM +/- 150 rpm, with the engagement speed on the clutch set to 1650rpm +/- 100rpm (a lower engagement speed allows a higher torque rating and reduces the chances of clutch slippage even under severe...

    IB Flail Mower Blowing Grey Smoke and Tensioner Belt Snapped

    We don't advise anything similar to Wessex as a run-in period for our machines (which are all centrifugal clutch driven), but then we use using a bespoke clutch from a German manufacturer rather then the off-the-shelf unit that our competitors fit. Having said that the primary cause of...
