Our dealers are a highly valued part of our company. We would like to recognize one of our newest dealers in the blog this week. Clinton Tractor and Implement of Clinton, New York is now a proud dealer of Ventrac! Owned by the Calidonna family, Clinton Tractor has been a family-owned and family-run business for over 50 years.
It all started back in 1953 when the Calidonna brothers, Dominick, Frank, and John, answered a newspaper advertisement seeking a farm machinery dealer for the Clinton, New York area. Before long, the brothers became representatives for Triad Tractor of Yorkville, N.Y. a Ford farm and industrial equipment distributor. The rest, as they say, is history…
Today, Clinton Tractor and Implement Co. is still owned and operated by the Calidonna family. Brothers Chris and John, together with sisters Regina and Rebecca, are the second generation to operate the family business. After several expansions to the business, Clinton Tractor still remains a family-owned, family-run business with over 20 employees, who not only sell, but service the company’s vast inventory of farm and industrial equipment.
Clinton Tractor is excited to announce they have recently teamed up with Ventrac to carry the unique line of compact articulating tractors. Besides offering customers an Ohio manufactured product, Clinton Tractor added the Ventrac line because it has a design, form and function that is different than some of their current lines of compact tractors. Ventrac’s all wheel drive and tight turning radius design provides superb traction to go where other tractors can not and will be sold to end-users who require a tractor that does much more than mow grass. With its many unique features, the new product will bring a heightened dimension of versatility to the Clinton Tractor lineup. “We look for quality in the products that we carry, also a company that stands behind their equipment,” says John Calidonna, owner.
Among Clinton Tractor’s equipment lines are brands like New Holland Agriculture, New Holland Construction, Club Car, Ferris, Kuhn/Knight and many others. They serve a broad spectrum of customers in agriculture (full time farmers, part time farmers and hobby farmers), construction, landscapers, home owners and municipalities.
With an experienced staff and top notch facilities, the success of Clinton Tractor stems around being “The Industry Leader in Service”, striving every step of the way to achieve excellence in customer service. The staff goes the extra mile to put customers first and customers come back time and time again, knowing the company stands behind what they sell. A full service parts and repair department is available for all the equipment they sell, as well as rental services.
Over the years, Clinton Tractor and Implement has received numerous awards and commendations, including the coveted 2001 President’s Prestige Award by New Holland North America and Ferris Industries’ “Number One Dealer in the U.S.A.” award for 2001-2002.
