The LQ450 Field Mower is designed to cut heavy grass and small brush growth. Two counter-rotating blades discharge the cut grass to the center rear. Suspended front chains allow tall grass to be cut more effectively and reduce the potential for front discharge. Three pins provide three cutting height options: 2-1/4, 3-1/2, and 4-3/4 inches (5.7, 8.9, and 12.1 centimeters).
A single swivel tire is located on the front center frame of the mower. This position greatly reduces tree branch interference. Skid shoes on both sides provide anti-scalping and blade protection.
The tree shield kit can be installed for use on tree farms, vineyards, nurseries, etc. This shielding protects both the trees and the operator. Branch lifters and tractor tire covers are standard equipment with the tree shield kit.
