Weaving offset flail ‘first’ to show at Royal Welsh

The Blade 260 offset flail.

Weaving Machinery will be bringing two brand new machines to this year’s Royal Welsh Show. The new offset flail – the Blade 260 – offers sheep farmers unprecedented precision and compatibility when mowing grass and is the first completely offset flail to be combined with a hydraulic break back, able to swing clear of damaging obstacles in the terrain. The Blade 260 makes precise grass management easier than ever, ideal for reseeding pastures and maintaining optimum grass length.

“The Royal Welsh is always a highlight of our year, especially the friendly atmosphere and chance to spend time with our customers and friends,” says Simon Weaving, sales manager at Weaving Machinery. “We’re excited to share the new Blade 260 and the R520 with farmers looking for ease of use and power. It’s the ideal setup for smooth pasture management.

“This flail is perfect for farmers looking for a more precise cut on the first pass,” continued Simon. “Removing thistles, ensuring an optimum grass length – this makes the hard jobs go smoother.”

As well as the Blade 260, Weaving Machinery will also be showing the R520, its joystick-controlled hedgecutter.

We’re enthusiastic about putting the most innovative tools in the hands of farmers. Easier work for fantastic results – what could be better?”
