Vermeer Corporation expands its mower conditioner line with the addition of the MC4500 mower conditioner. The MC4500 has a 15-foot (4.5-m) cutting width to meet the needs of large volume operators.

“Vermeer added a larger model to the mower conditioner line to help large volume operators cover more acres in a shorter amount of time” said Vermeer Product Manager, Josh Vrieze. “The MC4500 mower conditioner brings more size, speed, versatility and reliability to the operator in the field.”

Features include a drawbar swivel hitch and a Quick-Clip® Blade Retention System. The Q3® Cutter Bar technology helps maximize productivity and the Shear Ring sits within the disc hub and shears when a potentially damaging object encounters the disc to protect the internal gears and drive spline.

Vermeer mower conditioners are equipped with a nitrogen-charged accumulator suspension system and have an option of either a steel roller or v-tine conditioner on all models of mower conditioners. In addition, multiple swath adjustments give users more control over their windrow formation. The Vermeer MC-series mower conditioners offers cutting widths of 9.1 feet (2.8 m) on the MC2800, 10.5 feet (3.3 m) on the MC3300, 12 feet (3.7 m) on the MC3700 and now 15 feet (4.5 m) on the MC4500.
