High production and extremely low ground pressure combine to offer exceptional performance in the most demanding mulching jobs. With a Cummins QSX15 Tier III engine, the 480 is a powerful machine with 440 hp available to the mulching attachment. The machine is compact and maneuverable with a narrow overall width and a light footprint for soft soil conditions.

A highly refined closed loop track drive system propels the carrier and a dedicated pump powers the attachment. The 480 uses heavy duty track frames and a robust mounting system for the oscillating tracks. The efficient, high capacity cooling system uses a variable pitch fan with an automatic reversing cycle.

The machine incorporates high-lift boom geometry for improved performance on uneven terrain. The counter-rotate function or CRF allows the 480 to pivot about its center axis at the touch of a button for quick, effortless “on a dime” turns at the end of a row. All functions including the joystick steering are electronically controlled, allowing for operator customization.
