Series BGM and BKM
Universal flail pruning choppers - Series BGM and BKM
Flail choppers with double headstock
The heavy constructed flail chopper series BGM and BKM have especially been designed for use by costumers disposing of different tractors to drive. The special headstock allows for use as front and as rear mounted models without any transformation.
Thanks to the standard hydraulic offset, the low profile (height V-belt cover 51½ cm ( 20″)), and the main bearings, which are located on the inside of the frame, the cutting width can be optimally used.
Heavy duty drive
The standard configuration also includes a hydraulic offset feature and a universal gearbox with integrated overrunning clutch that accepts any rotation. Available with 540, 750 or 100 rpm.
V-belts with a spring loaded automatic belt tensioner assure an indirect flexible drive with maximum security and a minimum maintenance.
Unique bearing covers
To protect the bearings of the rear rollers, the bearings are fitted with unique covers to prevent humidity, dust and mud from entering.
Special “Perfect” flails
The 2,2 kg (5 lbs) heavy-duty “Perfect” flails are especially designed for pulverizing prunings. They are fitted to the electronically balanced vibration-free flail rotor with heavy bolts and replaceable steel bushings and provide an excellent pulverization. No further work is necessary to collect or remove the cut material.
Optional flails of 0,8 kg (13/4 lbs) are available for grass cutting and light chopping work (vineyard prunings, leaves etc.).
Rake tines (series BKM)
For a better pick-up and pulverization of thin prunings or prunings that are laying flat, our flail choppers Series BKM are delivered with rake tines which are adjustable in height.
