How To Stripe Hills With a Flail Mower - Using the Ventrac Flail Mower Alongside Airport RunwaysThe Ventrac Flail Mower is the perfect attachment for mowing alongside airport runways. When most airports build the runway, they create a flat spot for the planes to take off and land, and because they manipulate the land around them, there is usually a drop-off and very steep hills around the runway. All of the steep areas around the runway are very easily managed by the Ventrac 4500 with dual wheels.To maintain these steep slopes, airports need equipment to handle these hills safely and still leave a high-quality cut. Airports have specific mowing needs because they have to keep the grass maintained for erosion control. They might mow every 4-8 weeks; therefore, the growth will be a lot higher than most areas maintained more frequently. A regular finish mower doesn’t quite do the job in these areas of high growth. And a rough cut mower doesn’t leave as nice of a finish with the risk of leaving clumps of grass behind as it discharges.Since it’s coupled on the Ventrac tractor, the Flail Mower can handle the terrain easily and chops debris into very fine pieces, which will help it decompose faster. Preventing erosion from happening and keeping up appearances from the road are key concerns for many airports because they tend to take up large areas in local communities. The Flail Mower leaves an excellent stripe and looks like a finish mower did the job.Another advantage of the Flail Mower for a property setting like this is the cutting style. Since the flail mower uses knives attached to a drum, there is a breakaway nature to that blade. When the mower knives hit an obstruction or a rock, it absorbs the impact and keeps objects from flying out of the mower deck. This is a safer choice on properties where safety is of the highest importance.Most of our airport customers really value the fact that they can do more than just mow with their Ventrac. During winter, they can switch to winter attachments to clear snow from beside buildings or walkways. This allows the airports to be way more productive with their equipment fleet.Products featured in this video:VENTRAC 4500: https://www.ventrac.com/products/tractors/4500 MWMY FLAIL MOWER: https://www.ventrac.com/products/attachments/mwmy For more information, visit https://www.ventrac.com/ Find a dealer near you! https://www.ventrac.com/dealers Get a FREE catalog! https://www.ventrac.com/contact/catalog Subscribe here! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0aiC7V2JS3nh11R5tRuIUw Connect with Us!Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ventrac/ Instagram - @ventrac_tractorsTwitter - @ventrac
