The free-floating Contour™ Plus cutting decks follow the contour of the terrain for a championship quality of cut. With a powerful 55 hp (41.1 kw) Yanmar® engine and full-time 4 wheel drive, tough jobs get done quickly.
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.
The Kubota® 60 hp (44.7 kw) turbo-diesel liquid-cooled, 4-cylinder engine provides an abundance of power to handle the most demanding mowing conditions. The 4500-D and 4700-D are the most powerful mowers in their class, with 117 ft-lbs (158.6 N) of torque at 58 hp (43.3 kw) net and normal engine speed of 2600 RPM.
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.
Atomic® mulching blades feature an aggressive "tooth" design that shreds grass and leaves into small particles. The teeth curl upward behind the blade to suspend clippings in the chamber so they are cut and re-cut until they virtually disappear.

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.
