The Tough Cut deck attachment for the Ventrac 4520 all-terrain compact tractor
has been specifically designed for mowing high grass, thick weeds and heavy
Able to work on slopes of up to 30 degrees, it can save huge amounts of man-hours when compared to strimming.
A large front opening directs material into the deck where three heavy-duty blades counter rotate to cut and deposit waste evenly without windrowing. The blades are sharp on both sides so they can be used on right or left-hand spindles, allowing for extended blade life.
Capable of tackling saplings up to 2.54 mm (1 inch) in diameter, the Tough Cut makes short work out of overgrown thickets. It has three cutting heights: 76 mm, 92 mm and 108 mm. Easy servicing of belts and pulleys is provided by the hinged and removable cover, while the flip-up deck provides easy access for cleaning and changing blades.
Peter Pattenden, the Golf Courses
and Estates Manager at Carden
Park, is a 30-year veteran in the
industry having begun his career
at Gleneagles back in 1991. He
is an enthusiastic advocate of the
Tough Cut deck.
“We manage over 1400 acres at Carden Park including the two championship golf courses, the owner’s house and grounds and the tenant farms dotted around the estate. Every piece of equipment we buy has to earn its keep and this Ventrac certainly falls into this category.
“The Tough Cut deck is superb as it can cut through saplings, bracken and gorse, helping to maintain the areas that consume man-hours. We do a lot of woodland management, removing trees and scrub, and this means travelling across fairways to reach particular areas. The light footprint of the Ventrac, which I believe is just 6 psi, allows us to go in with either the Stump Grinder attachment or the Tough Cut deck to maintain these sites, without leaving wheel marks across the courses.”
