Flailbot

Flailbot is Bomford's wirelessly operated track mower for challenging terrains that offers the ultimate remotely controlled mowing capability with zero operator risk.

Covering challenging, steeply inclined terrain with a traditional man-on-board power mower puts a driver at risk. Remotely controlled wirelessly, Flailbot provides ultimate mowing capability whilst keeping the operator at a safe distance.

Take it to the limit. A head for heights.

Flailbot is as at home on steep slopes as it is on flatter areas. With its ability to work on terrains angled up to 55 degrees and being remotely controlled makes it ideal for use for:

  • Hilly and mountainous areas.
  • Banks and ditches.
  • Escarpments and highways.
  • Near railway lines
  • Military land.
  • Industrial and energy plants.
  • Public parklands.
  • Forested areas.
  • Airports.
  • Drainage systems and reservoirs.
  • Municipal areas.
  • Sports facilities.

Durable and robust. Built to last.

To protect the engine, bearings and components, a tough underbody skin is structurally integrated into the frame, preventing ingress of debris, fragments and grit.

Engineered for Excellence

A robust roll bar, integrated into the chassis, can also be used to hoist the vehicle if needed. In addition to a 4-point attachment system for lifting, the frame includes front and rear fastening systems for optional tools and equipment. Flashing LEDs and powerful headlights ensure high visibility during operation.

Advanced Cooling

A Flexxaire fan ensures a safe operating temperature in all conditions. In reverse operation, debris is blown clear from the engine.

A Flashing LEDs.
B 40 HP Perkins engine.
C Robust rollbar.
D Powerful LED headlights.
E Front hood controlled by electronic interloc to manage debris.

G Strong gripping treads.
H Tough chasis and underbody.

 

For every situation. Confidence on any terrain.

With a powerful 40hp engine, twin-track grip, excellent manoeuvrability and flexible tool attachment options, Flailbot delivers the all-terrain performance you need. Whilst the engine is running, oil pressure-controlled track tensioners keep both tracks correctly tensioned automatically, preventing track loss and maximising grip on difficult ground. Protected track idler sprockets and wheels further secure the tracks. For particularly difficult or steep conditions, the operator can also remotely extend each track width individually by 250mm / 10”, increasing the footprint for added stability and grip.
