FD450 Grass Pick Up Ride On Mower - In stock, order now!

FD450 - A professional hydrostatic mower with a front-mounted cutting deck and a grass-catcher capacity of 450 Litres.  The grass-catcher discharge height is 170 cm with an ejection of 45 cm; the cutting quality and high performance collection of this model are its best features.

The innovative cutting system “Grillo Overblow” allows tremendous acceleration of the grass/air flow into the discharge chute considerably increasing its collection capability, even in damp or wet conditions whilst at the same time keeping the noise level of the whole cutting/collecting system extremely low.  

The front-mounted cutter deck gives the operator excellent visibility of his/her working area. The innovative cutting system produces increased acceleration of the grass/air flow.

All three blades direct the cut grass into a large, straight, load chute at the same time significantly increasing the load capacity. In this way the grass is very well-compressed improving the overall efficiency of the 450 L. grass-catcher.  

Under difficult conditions, when the grass is high and wet, the Grillo FD450 is exceptionally efficient. During the autumn season, when the grass is covered with leaves, the FD450 will collect them without blocking. 

Grillo FD450 is extremely manoeuvrable and easy to drive! Control is via a steering wheel and the rear wheel steer produces an inner turning circle of just 30 cm.

The hydrostatic transmission is controlled by a pedal, forward to go forward, back to go into reverse. The pedal is fitted with a “damper” to enable smooth operation.

In tight areas or when manoeuvring or in the presence of obstacles, the Grillo FD450 shows how agile it can be!  

The floating cutting deck ensures a perfect cut even on undulating ground. The rear pivoting axle, the tires with an anti-skid profile, allow, together with the pressure adjustment of the cutting deck on the ground, to follow with extreme precision any undulations, and therefore eliminate the possibility of scalping the grass.  

Forward speed ranges from 0 to 11 km/h and is continuously adjustable. Taking care of your lawn will be a pleasure not a chore. When necessary, the differential lock, operated via a pedal with automatic disengagement, allows greater traction and safety. 

The cutter deck's wheels are solid and puncture-proof. The blades are automatically disengaged once the grass catcher is full. There is also the possibility to choose the “buzzer indicating” option that signals when the catcher is full.

The emptying of the grass catcher is performed via electrical push-buttons, easily reached from the driver's seat; the 2 independent hydraulic rams raise the grass catcher up to a height of 170 cm with a rear overhang of 45 cm allowing easy tipping. Opening of the catcher rear door is automatic.  

Engagement of the cutter blades is made via an electromagnetic clutch. The control is by a push-button.

The parking brake, once engaged, allows you to dismount from the machine with the engine running and the blades disengaged. In this case, the hydraulic controls for the cutter deck and grass catcher are automatically excluded.

FD450 is fitted with a petrol 22hp B&S 7220 Professional Series twin cylinder engine with electric start and 17L fuel tank with level indicator. The engine has a 656cc displacement and incorporates the latest technical innovations ensuring reliability, low emissions, reduced consumption, high performance and vibrations levels which are reduced to the minimum. The engine is a professional series with bearings on the crank, an oil pump, oil filter and cast iron cylinder liners.  

The FD450's exhaust “Grillo Super Silent” is designed by Grillo in order to obtain the highest possible noise reduction levels, emissions reduced and minimal exhaust resistance.    

The FD450’s design is up to the minute! The bodywork's modern clean lines as well as the attention to detail will immediately impress everyone! The operators position of the machine is ergonomically designed. The comfortable and capacious seat is equipped with adjustable suspension to adapt to the operator's weight.

Once you have finished work, cleaning the cutting deck is quick and easy! Connect a water hose to the quick coupling on the deck, let water flow and engage the blade for a few seconds...loading chute and cutter deck will be cleaned with minimal effort!

The FD450's cutter deck can be easily demounted and be stably positioned vertically on its supports which are designed for this purpose; just remove the drive belt via a quick lever for easy maintenance or inspection. There is the option to remove the grass duct without any special tools. The engine and transmission components are easily accessible for inspection or servicing by lifting the grass-catcher and the seat.

The Grillo FD450 is equipped with lifting hooks for easy transportation.
