Heavy-Duty Equals Reliability

The heavy-duty 1/4″ thick flail shroud and integral frame provide the backbone of the Flail Shredder. Couple that with a high capacity, triple belt drive line and a rugged transport axle with wheel tread adjustable tire assemblies, the result is a machine that will provide many years of reliable service. Other features like the replaceable shroud wear plates, flexible rubber debris shields, high capacity gear box, and an integral over running drive line clutch, add to the utility of the Brillion Flail Shredder.

Standard Equipment

All models include a 3″ x 8″ hydraulic cylinder with hoses. The short-coupled adjustable drawbar comes with a safety chain and hitch jack. Safety warning lights and an SMV sign round out the list of standard equipment. The 1000 RPM models have a constant velocity PTO shaft and all 15’ models have four transport wheel assemblies as standard equipment.

Economical Versatility

Flail Shredders have primarily been used for chopping corn residue after harvest to help enhance tillage operations and speed up the decomposition of trash. Like many other machines in the farm equipment industry, the Flail Shredder has been transformed into a multi-operational unit. It is also being used for mowing waterways, clipping pastures, and in some cases, unique topping operations in some specialty crops. Different knife styles are available: side slice, cup knives or a combination of both will provide different results in different crops. An optional center cut kit will enhance the overall function in non-row crops.
