Features & Benefits

Q3 cutter bar

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.

Quick-Clip blade retention system

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

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.

Roller or tine conditioner options

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.

Spring-loaded hood

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.
