Are you looking to expand your construction knowledge, and planning to invest in some additional training? Flail training may be the answer you’re looking for!
If you’ve already completed excavator training previously, then our flail training course will be a breeze! So what’s involved?
WHAT IS FLAIL TRAINING?
Flail training is the art of operating a flail attachment using an excavator. Due to the diverse range of digger attachments on the market, they can be incredibly versatile and used for a variety of tasks. It’s not only operators within the construction industry that may need this type of training.
When you choose to book onto our courses, not only can we safely teach you how to operate a digger and various attachments. We can also cover the hazards and risks of carrying out this type of work.

WHAT IS A BRUSH CUTTER?
A brush cutter, also known as a mulcher is a digger attachment used to clear shrubs and grass. It is exceptionally good for overgrown terrains. It is essentially a large lawn mower suitable for an excavator to operate.
The attachment is made up of high quality steel rotary blades that will cut through materials cleanly. It is also fitted with a heavy duty debris shield, however the same rules still apply: Never stand too close in case any materials fly out the sides. It will certainly make any landscaping job an easy task!
Our brush cutter attachments are used on a 5 tonne excavator, which have been bespoke made by our sister company, Masterhitch Europe Ltd.
What is it used for?
The brush cutter attachment is commonly used within the landscaping and agricultural sector. Not only is it fantastic for clearing shrubs as mentioned above, it can also remove:
- Overgrown vegetation
- Small plants / trees
- Reaching over fences
- Mowing grass around ponds

ARE THERE ANY REQUIREMENTS TO BOOK ONTO THE COURSE?
In order to book onto our flail training course, the operator will need to have previous experience operating an excavator.
An NPORS, CPCS qualification or anything equivalent will be required. If no previous training has been carried out, we can also assist with this. We can offer excavator courses for individuals, whether they are novices or need refresher training.
Once sufficient excavator training has been completed, our one day flail training course can be booked. If the operator would like to use a different excavator attachment then this can also be arranged.
