    Re: Hedgetrimmer flail head on a mini-digger??

    Will cut branches up to 2" thick. I also find that the hedges continue to flower much better than cut with a flail. Very happy with it.

    I use one of these on a 5.5 tonne 360. Very happy with it. Great reach and tracks make way less mess on my wet land.

    Thanks for your help. We have managed to get the boom a couple of feet out so at least I can reach a little further. Will have a look and see if it is possible to make any more adjustments.
