Ventrac on NFL Monday Night Football

This past Monday, Ventrac Salesperson, Trevor Ryan was unwinding in his hotel room. Monday Night Football was on TV, but Trevor was distracted by e-mails and other business he was attending to. The Minnesota Vikings were playing the New York Giants and the game had been moved from Minneapolis to Detroit after the Metrodome roof collapsed under the weight of heavy snow.  During a break in the action, the TV announcers cut to a shot of the 17-inches of snow that had fallen in Minneapolis, and this shot caught Trevor’s attention:

There it was, a Ventrac plowing deep snow in Minneapolis. The full game can be viewed on NFL Game Rewind. Check out 2:52 to go in the 1st quarter.

Ventrac leaf vacuum collection system

Ventrac cleaning up a camp with the Vacuum Collection system

Fall is a colorful time of year, but collecting those vibrant leaves isn’t always a pretty job once they hit the ground!  It can be a dreaded job!   Ventrac equipment helped take hours out of the backbreaking, labor-some task of leaf collection at a near-by camp this past weekend.   Volunteers were on hand with two Ventrac tractors to help with the huge job of leaf clean up at Camp Luz,  a Christian camp, near Orrville, Ohio.     “Leaf collection for us has always been a really BIG job,” says  Andrew Michaels, Program Director for Camp Luz.   “In the past it has taken sometimes up to a month to get the leaves collected.”

The job was accomplished in just ONE day as two Ventracs, equipped with vacuum collection systems, buzzed around making quick work out of something that normally took weeks of hand raking and bagging.   Both tractors used the vacuum collection systems to round up the leaves but also switched to the blower attachment to gather any stray debris and leaves in tight areas amongst the trees.

Ventrac Now Available at Zimmer Tractor

We are  proud to announce that Zimmer Tractor, Inc. of Monroe, Ohio has recently added Ventrac tractors and attachments to their current product line.   Covering the Cincinnati-Tri-State area, Zimmer provides product to a wide range of industries, including homeowners, turf and commercial industries as well as a large portion of customers in the agricultural industry.  Ventrac will be available at the Monroe, Ohio showroom only, but Zimmer Tractor showrooms can also be found in Aurora and Brookville, Indiana.

“We thought Ventrac would be a good fit for our customers,” says Jason Beckner, Vice President.  Besides offering customers an Ohio manufactured product,  Zimmer added the Ventrac line because it had a design, form and function that was different than some of their current lines of compact tractors.  Ventrac’s all wheel drive and tight turning radius design will allow it 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 to the  Zimmer lineup.   Along with Ventrac, the dealership carries a wide range of quality equipment including Kubota, New Holland, Scag, Wright, Landpride, Woods and Bush Hog.

The business owes its success to the core beliefs that customer satisfaction comes first and with Zimmer’s experienced staff and top notch facilities, customers get the specialty attention they need – before, during and after the sale.  “Every employee is customer-centered,”  adds Beckner.  “We have the staff and the facilities to take care of the customer the way they need to be taken care of.”

Throughout the year, customers can take advantage of seasonal specials offered by Zimmer on select equipment and accessories.  A full service parts department with skilled technicians are always on hand to keep equipment running at its peak performance.
