All-Wheel Drive

Full-time, all-wheel hydrostatic drive delivers maximum performance and traction to help you get the job done.

Ventrac FlexFrame

Ventrac FlexFrame allows the 4500 tractor to both articulate and oscillate. These benefits allow the machine to crawl over terrain no matter how it changes, allowing more stability and capability to work on surfaces that aren’t perfectly flat.

Four Seasons Strong

Versatility - Light Footprint

The Ventrac 4500 tractor utilizes large flotation tires on an articulating and oscillating frame to maintain a light footprint and impressive agility. This greatly reduces turf disturbance.

Traction Control

Ventrac's innovative weight transfer system improves traction, braking, and side-slope steering security by shifting a portion of the front attachment weight onto the tractor.
