ALL-WHEEL TRACTION Parallel hydraulic flow between the front and rear wheels ensures solid
footing at all four wheels. The bi-directional, hydrostatic drive maintains consistent traction, even on hills
or wet turf. And the individual wheel brakes provide extra traction assistance when needed.
EASY SERVICE Servicing your Toro Groundsmaster has
never been easier. Just remove two pins and the entire hood
can be removed in seconds. The rear-screen, mid-area
cowling and console can also be removed without tools.
Routine maintenance is never a hassle with the convenient
placement of regular service points.
ROBUST DESIGN The innovative planetary
gear wheel-drive system on the Groundsmaster
4500-D and 4700-D allows the traction system
hydraulics to run with increased efficiency and
less heat build-up. Multiple reinforcements on
the cutting decks handle the most rugged terrain,
even direct impacts to the blade and housing.
For added assurance, the 4700-D even offers an
impact absorption system that protects the rear
outer decks. It’s all part of the Toro commitment
to making the world’s longest-lasting mowers.

MONSTER ENGINES With rugged 60
hp engines, the Toro Groundsmaster 4500-D
and 4700-D deliver more power and torque
than any other mower in their class. Hills and
terrain changes won’t slow you down. You’ll
power through long, wet grass. And whether
you choose the 9' or 12.5' width of cut, you
know you’re getting the most productive
mower available.

REVOLUTIONARY CUT TING QUALIT Y The Toro® Contour™ Plus cutting decks offer cutting quality
never before found in a rotary deck. Each free-floating deck follows the contour of the ground for an even cut. Air
inlet pockets keep grass standing tall for a clean cut on every blade. Plus, a modified discharge opening in the rear
disperses clippings more evenly. To finish the look, heavy-duty rollers behind each deck create a beautiful striping
pattern, even in heavy rough. A mulching kit is also available.
