I am planning on adding a hinged cover for the outlet chute to make my
finish mower a mulching mower. This will also allow me to mow beds and not
throw grass into an adjacent bed. We will see how badly it clogs up.

Subject: [Market-farming] Flail mowers

I am looking to buy a 3 point flail mower to use for mowing tall 
cover crops of winter rye, oats, and sorghum sudangrass before 
tilling them into the soil.  I have used a rotary brush mower in the 
past but I would like to switch to a flail mower so that the material 
will be chopped more finely and evenly distributed.  I have been 
looking at Rhino, Landpride, Befco, and similar flail mowers.

Landpride offers a reverse rotation flail mower.  Does anyone have 
experience using reverse rotation flail mowers - I am concerned that 
tall material which is laid down in the wheel tracks will not be 
picked up as well by a reverse rotation mower.

Thanks for your advice.
