The comments below are "right-on". I use a flail to provide green chop to my grass fed beef cattle, when/if the pastures get short because of dry conditions. So some years it is seldom/never used. However, the last two flails I bought I found in the back of a dairy farmer's machinery shed and convinced them to sell it to me. I too couldn't locate one for sale going the normal route ..i. e, want ads, craigslist, tractor house (that was close enough to get it). Some times it's just luck, but I would ask around... my John Deere machinery dealer was most helpful ... the others not so much..wanted to sell me new. this neck of the woods I doubt you could get a servicable/repairable flail for 500 bucks.

Thats exactly what i want it for. Im probably going to run out of hay mid april, was hoping to find something to get by until the pasture comes on enough to support the cows.

Around here IF you could find anything close to decent in John Deere or New Holland it will be quite a bit more than 500 dollars. There were a number of IH flail choppers around years ago and those today if one could be found may very well price out in the 5-6-700 dollar range. I had a chance to drive some roads this year I had not been down for twenty years or more and nearly all the older small dairy equipment is gone as is the operator.
