STMASourcebook.com STMAsourcebookLISTED hh.indd 1 2/17/17 9:44 AM TURFEX MS4500 ELECTRIC-POWERED TOPDRESSER The TurfEx 1.4-cubic-yard-capacity MS4500 topdresser boasts polyethylene construction, fully electric operation and precision spreading. It has the ability to spread standard topdressing sand for golf courses; crumb rubber for synthetic turf fields; and a variety of other bulk materials, including compost and soil conditioners. The MS4500's heavy-duty polyethylene construction eliminates the corrosion and maintenance concerns associated with similar steel-built models, while also making the unit up to 40-percent lighter. Furthermore, it features large flotation tires and exerts only 18 psi when fully loaded, allowing safe operation on delicate surfaces such as golf greens. The lightweight construction also lessens fuel consumption for the towing vehicle. Another feature unique to the MS4500 is that it's a completely electric-powered unit — meaning no hydraulics or gas engines. This eliminates the possibility of hydraulic fluid leaks that can burn grasses and greens. It also equals quieter operation than gas- or hydraulic-powered models, and further reduces weight, maintenance requirements and fuel consumption. TurfEx
