Ransomes reelcutter modification

Hi all.

I have a ransomes reel cutter cylinder mower and im wondering if I can modify it to become a flail mower for rough cutting.

I believe they did a flail version of the same machine. Is it just a case of making a robust drum on which to mount flail blades and making a steel cover to fully enclose the drum head?

Any thoughts gratefully received, 

Thanks Mick

At one time it was called the Multi-mower with interchangeable reel and rotary ( not flail)  front ends. Over time Ransomes offered a couple of flail mowers but as far as I know they were dedicated machines and not adaptations of the Reel/ Multi-mower.

I was wondering if the multicutter would have enough power to drive a flail bar. 

It should be a pretty easy modification to try, if it doesn't work then I can go back to the cylinder blade. 

I've written to a company that supplies flail blades and links for their view on how possible it would be.

Maybe I need to look out for a front end flail for my wheelhorse tractor.
