972 Flail Chopper Hay and Forage Equipment

The rugged, simple design of the 972 Flail Chopper provides dependable performance. Two rows of double-edged knives cut the standing crop and lift it to a transfer auger.

The 30.5 cm (12 in.), 300-rpm auger then moves the material to a knife-equipped fan where three blades size the forage even further.
