The Groundsmaster® 4500-D continues to provide the clean quality of cut of a reel mower but with the maintenance ease of a rotary. At 109” width of cut, the free-floating Contour™ Plus Decks eliminate scalping, provide dramatic striping and deliver a picture perfect cut. Toro’s exclusive SmartCool™ system keeps your machine on the job and moving forward. Before things get too hot, SmartCool briefly reverses the cooling fan to blast chaff and debris from the intake screens. With a 55 hp (41 kW) Tier 4 Final and Stage V compliant turbo-diesel and the new Smart Power™ technology, that maximizes power to the cutting blades, the Groundsmaster 4500-D is an unprecedented blend of powerful productivity and refined results.
The Groundsmaster® 4500-D and 4700-D both feature a unique, parallel hydraulic traction system that assures full-time, bi-directional 4-wheel drive. Parallel hydraulic flow between front and rear wheels means that you will have 4-wheel drive assistance in turns, enabling easier trimming around objects without tire scuffing and dependable traction on hills and wet terrain.
The Contour™ Plus cutting technology takes quality of cut to a whole new level. Air inlet pockets keep the grass standing tall for the cleanest possible cut and a modified rear discharge opening disperses clippings more evenly. An optional mulching kit and optional high height of cut blade are also available.
The operator area of the Groundsmaster® 4500-D and 4700-D was designed to make work more comfortable with amenities like a large operator platform, multi-size beverage holder, 12-volt outlet, storage box, deluxe seat, and portable radio holder. Operators will also be pleased by the lower sound levels and the additional storage area behind the seat that's large enough for a water cooler, trash bucket, and other items.
With this feature you get helpful maintenance reminders and instant notification of potential problems. During normal operation, the InfoCenter displays clear and simple operating information at a glance, while constantly monitoring the internal health of the machine. Audible and visual alarms notify the operator of a potential problem. In the field or at the shop, technicians can quickly identify the source of the issue. Allows operator to adjust sensitivity of electronically controlled foot pedal when moving. This allows the supervisor to set a maximum mowing speed for greater control of operator usage and quality.
A new higher height of cut blade is now available in addition to the standard blade. This blade creates more lift and should be used in higher height of cut application. While there is no absolute height where the blade should be used, it should generally be used beginning at 2-1/4" (5.7 cm) or 2-1/2" (6.4 cm) height of cut.
