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.
- Drainage systems and reservoirs.
- Municipal areas.
- Sports facilities.
The remote control, operating all Flailbot functions, has a range of up to 150m (492’).
Providing precise control of forward or reverse track speeds, real-time critical machine data and the ability to adjust the offset needed to maintain direction amongst many others.
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.
A Flexxaire fan ensures a safe operating temperature in all conditions. In reverse operation, debris is blown clear from the engine.

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.
Confidence on any terrain
Powerful mowing machinery needs to perform consistently. To navigate variable or vulnerable terrain easily, Flailbot offers different track options:
A - Standard Track
Rubber track with low impact tread pattern. Ideal for most normal terrain.
B - Hi-Grip Track
Rubber track with deep tread pattern. Offers enhanced grip for mixed substrates.
C - Metal Spiked Track
Steel-linked tracks with spiked studs. Offers maximum traction and stability navigating steep,challenging inclines.
