We have all seen the capabilities of Ventrac equipment, but when you see a Ventrac being used at one of the top golf courses in the country, it brings chills down the spine! Back in September, a few of us from Ventrac were granted an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes of the Pete Dye Course at French Lick. We were welcomed by an amazing grounds crew that showed us how they used Ventrac and how it handles on a course of this caliber.
Ventrac is the ultimate machine for mowing uneven terrain. The Ventrac Contour Mower Deck will go where other mowers dare not.
We are again featuring Jack Wiley, who uses his Ventrac Turbo Diesel and attachments to do a multitude of tasks. Jack sent us a video of his tractor in operation with an 84″ contour mower deck. Continue Reading
Living in a part of the country where hills, ravines and slopes are part of the landscape, Jack Wiley knows first hand the difficulty in safely mowing these treacherous areas. Jack owns a Ventrac 4231 Turbo Diesel model compact tractor along with 10 Ventrac attachments and he was happy to share his thoughts and experiences with us.
“Over the years there have been 9 major incidents in my immediate neighborhood where 2 wheel drive lawn and garden tractors have either rolled or run-away downhill out of control. Some of these resulted in injuries. With the Ventrac I now safely mow some of the steeper slopes belonging to my neighbors in addition to my own. They are grateful for the assistance, and I get to enjoy the ride. For me, mowing is a recreational experience!”
Jack has a real need for his Ventrac and uses it for many different applications and the compact tractor serves as his workhorse as well as being one of his major hobbies. Besides maintaining his own home, he also grooms the grounds of his church and trails at a wetland preserve, so his Ventrac gets a real workout.
