What to Consider When Considering a Boom Mower
When in the market for a boom mower, choosing the right mowing head for the job is essential. With a choice of a rotary or flail head, each one has advantages over the other depending on the work ahead. The rotary head, with strong thick metal blade bars, widens roadside vegetation. It eliminates roadside brush and overhanging limbs up to six inches in diameter.
The flail mower, with a rotary drum and special knives, offers a cleaner cut for grass and light brush areas. These knives can be swapped out depending on the terrain. From grass only to cutting brush up to 4 inches in diameter, and everything in between. HP Fairfield’s rental fleet is comprised of one particular model which is proven to work best for municipal public works in New England.
The Bengal Brute, by Tiger Mowers, can be rented or purchased with a 50-inch wide rotary head or flail head off the 23-foot mid-mounted boom. We equip the flail head with Tiger’s MBG knives to handle vegetation up to 3 inches in diameter.

About the Tiger Bengal Brute
A Brute of a machine! The Bengal Brute is built like a heavy-duty boom mower is supposed to be. Built tough, it’s ready to handle your most demanding mowing needs. Tiger was the first to design the breakaway secondary boom.
This unique feature provides additional protection against hidden obstacles along the roadside regardless of boom position. If you happen to strike a large unseen object in your cutting path, the secondary boom can break away to easily roll past it.
The secondary knuckle breakaway feature also gives the Bengal Brute the ability to stow up behind the tractor instead of behind the rear wheel. On some model tractors, this folds back far enough to meet the 102″ legal transport width requirement.
