ATV Mower Pro
The ATV mower Pro is the perfect mower for tackling different terrain conditions from steep to flat and from dry to wet and clay soil. With an excellent build quality, very easy to use, and efficient even on sloping terrain, this heavy-duty ATV flail mower will cope with overgrown grass paddocks, woodland vegetation, bracken, heather, rushes, etc., with ease.
With a 23hp Honda fuel injected iGX700 V-Twin Engine, the new Pro series of ATV flail mowers manufactured in the UK are extremely fuel-efficient offering unparalleled power and performance. Suitable for smallholder and commercial users who use their equipment frequently and rely heavily on their agricultural machinery, this is a powerful, reliable machine, designed for heavy-duty mowing even on wet, boggy, and difficult terrain where a heavier mower could become stuck. Its low ground pressure makes this machine easy to tow with a quad and other towing vehicles, causing little impact on the ground or horse paddocks and able to cope with the most demanding tasks.
The Flail mower's Honda-powered electronic control system continually monitors and adjusts the engine's air to fuel ratio, according to operating conditions and engine load, while maintaining optimal performance. These fuel-injected engine ATV flail mowers produce lower emissions and are more able to cope with poor quality fuel, for increased efficiency.
Their Honda's upgraded engine, minimise starting issues giving these machines reliability in a range of conditions. Asides from the high built quality, these new quad mowers offer advantages such as lower petrol consumption, low maintenance costs, and less downtime. As in the other Chapman FM flail mowers, the ATV Pro mowers are available for sale in 1.2M (4ft) and 1.5M (5ft) cutting widths.

ATV FLAIL MOWER INFORMATION
Flail mowers are available as self-powered or tractor-mounted units (using a Cat1 three-point linkage system and driven by the tractor PTO system or power take-off). Our ATV flail mower is self-powered and ideal for being towed behind a quad bike or UTV vehicle and is favoured by smallholders, equestrian and large estate landowners when the land is not suitable for farm tractors due to wet, boggy ground conditions where the fields could get easily damaged.
This ATV flail mower is built to tackle a multitude of tasks and is used in paddock maintenance for controlling and reducing weeds in the paddocks, cutting down docks, nettles, thistles, and bracken, thus encouraging strong, healthy grass growth. It is also the ideal mower for cutting down overgrown brambles in woodland areas and for fire break mowing, where heather and saplings need to be cut down. For this specific purpose, the ATV flail mower would need to be set up on hammer blades. The Chapman ATV mower range are heavy-duty farm and woodland flail mowers. These ATV mowers are powered by a commercial-grade Honda GXV630cc/21HP V-Twin engine, the most powerful engine available on any ATV flail mower in today's market place offering a 3-year manufacturers' warranty. These quad mowers are available with "Y" blades, suited for the majority of mowing tasks or hammer blades for much heavier duties.

ATV FLAIL MOWER OPTIONS
Front Break Bar - Full width round bar with tapered ends fitted to the front of the ATV flail mower. This bar acts as a protection for the mower against damage from obstacles, such as bricks, boulders, etc.
The ATV flail mower's bar also helps guide the vegetation such as brambles, bracken, reeds and other materials into the machine for a more controlled cut.
Mulching Cutter Bar - This serrated strip of metal fits on the underside of the quad flail mower and is positioned in such a way that allows the cutting blades to mulch the grass to a fine finish, speeding up the decomposition process.
Twin Wheel Axle - When the ground is very wet and boggy the twin "walking beam" axle of this ATV flail mower is an absolute 'must'. These conditions are typically encountered when mowing reeds.
Centre Mounted Engine - When the ATV flail mower is being used on steep, sloping fields and paddocks, the centre mount position of the engine balances the machine ensuring greater stability and therefore safety for the operator.
Forged Hammer Flails or Blades - The upgrade to hammer flails is normally required when the mowing duties are tougher, for example woodland mowing of dense brambles, heather and saplings and other heavy vegetation. These hammer flails also give a cleaner cut when paddock topping grass. The design structure of the forged hammer blades is considerably more substantial and heavier, therefore giving a superior cut when compared to 'Y' flails. The increased weight improves the performance of the ATV flail mower when cutting through thick clumps of vegetation.
Engine Auto Idle - This feature is a Honda upgrade. It is a simple toggle switch that is fitted to the same control box that houses the safety kill button. This control box has an extension cable which mounts onto the rear rack of the quad bike or similar vehicle. The function of the switch is to allow the operator to change the engine speed from full revs to idle and vice versa to avoid getting on and off the quad bike constantly. A very useful feature when mowing fire-breaks on moorlands.

ATV Flail Mower Customer Review
Dan Wiltshire, Game Bird Shoot, Andover, Hampshire
FM150-F ATV Flail Mower with the wheels in the trailed position.
"We are using our ATV flail mower on a game bird shoot and using the mower on 10 acres of rearing fields. The first cut in March took down 2ft high, very thick rye grass with ease to 2 to 3 inch height and was used weekly for 5 months of the year on this job.
The ATV flail mower is also used to great effect mowing down out of control thick, dense brambles and does an amazing job. We tow the ATV flail mower behind a utility vehicle and have mowed down brambles as high as 8ft tall in places, the UTV pushes over the vegetation and then it lifts a little before the ATV flail mower then cuts and mulches it up. We set the cutting height higher on the 1st cut to around 6 inches to 12 inches and then take a 2nd cut if needed.
We have also used the ATV flail mower to cut down 6ft high nettles.
The flail mower has been an excellent investment and far exceeded our expectations. When considering the purchase of an ATV flail mower we researched many different makes of flail mowers and opted for the Chapman flail mower based on design, quality, the Honda 21HP engine. Keith at Fresh Group Products had an excellent understanding of our needs and explained why he thought the Chapman ATV flail mower would be best suited and we certainly have no hesitation in recommending both Fresh Group Products and the Chapman ATV flail mower.
Regards, Dan Wiltshire".

Jonathon Keaney, Kiltyclogher, Co Leitrim, Ireland
FM120-H ATV Flail Mower fitted with tandem wheels.
"We bought our ATV flail mower back in March this year and I have to say I'm over the moon with it. We have about forty acres of land, some of it quite hilly in places. The ATV flail mower is towed behind a 4x4 farm quad. Having such wet fields, we needed both the ATV flail mower and farm quad to be able to cope with the job at hand. The ATV flail mower has been in action typically 3 times a week this mowing season and has had to cut down heavy grass and rushes that haven`t been topped for probably, more than ten years! At its worse I would say the vegetation, which mainly consisted of thick grass and rushes were as high as four feet and were not problem at all for the Chapman ATV flail mower. The twin axle was a good upgrade option as the quad flail mower copes very well with humps and hollows in the fields and rides over them with ease.
I would also like to thank you Keith on both your advice and service. Please use us as a reference if you ever need to in the future.
Many thanks again, Jonathon".
ATV Flail Mower Review
Paul & Lyndsay Turnbull, Co Roscommon, Ireland
Chapman FM120 ATV Flail Mower.
"Having bought a small farm on the west of Ireland, it was immediately apparent that we would need no ordinary machine to tackle the reeds on the meadows and the brambles on the hill.
The meadows have not been mowed for the last 12 - 15 years, so the reeds had really taken hold, and the whole area was waterlogged. The west of Ireland has just had its wettest summer for approximately 30 years!
The reeds were tall and wet with several years of dead matted reeds and grass underneath, on a very spongy peat, which no tractor could cross.
The Chapman flail mower, supplied by Fresh Group Products, tackled the task with no problems, and after a second pass, took the whole meadow down to a tidy 4", with no damage to the land.
With the optional twin wheels on the mower it floated over deep water gullies, and even pulled effortlessly out of trouble after slipping into a ditch.
It tackled the brambles and gorse on the hill with equal ease.
Height adjustment and mower offsetting to left or right is quick and straightforward.
I don't know of another quad mower that could have coped with this challenging terrain.
Local farmers are already asking me to use the machine on their land, as they haven't been able to get their tractors on it for years".
