Top Fan of Ventrac Raves About Performance

Ventrac compact=
When Jack Wiley says he enjoys the ride on his Ventrac, he means it!

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.
