MC4500 Mower Conditioner

The MC4500 mower conditioner from Vermeer combines productivity, flexibility and convenience into one powerful package to give large volume operators the size (15-foot [4.5-m] cutting width) to cover more acres in a shorter time. With the efficient Q3™ Cutter Bar, the MC4500 mower conditioner requires just 105 horsepower (78 kW), and its modular design makes maintenance and repair user-friendly with the added convenience of unique cutter bar accessibility. Practical innovations, including the Quick-Clip® Blade Retention System and Quick-Change™ Shear Ring, make the tasks of changing blades and repairing a sheared disc quick and simple. When it's time to mow, the Vermeer MC4500 can get the job done.

Features and benefits

  • The Q3 Cutter Bar, a modular shaft-driven cutter bar, offers greater fuel efficiency with minimal gear-to-gear interface, requiring less horsepower than gear bed style cutter bars.
  • The Quick-Clip Blade Retention System for quickly replacing or reversing blades, and the Quick-Change Shear Ring to protect your cutter bar from potentially damaging obstacles, provide convenient maintenance and repair.
  • Nitrogen-charged accumulator suspension system provides a consistent weight on the cutter bar throughout the full range of motion, and can be easily customized by adjusting two needle valves.
  • Offered with either a roller or tine conditioner option, the MC4500 gives operators the ability to choose their preferred conditioning method. And with multiple swath adjustments, operators have control over their windrow formation – whether they want a narrow windrow or a wide swath.
  • A spring-loaded hood keeps the weight light enough for easy lifting, and magnets in the curtain keep it out of the way for convenient cutter bar access when maintenance is performed.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
