Ventrac Introduces New 3400 Articulating Tractor
ORRVILLE, Ohio, February 4, 2014 — Ventrac unveiled the newest addition to its product lineup, the Ventrac 3400. The 3400 is designed to fill the gap in the marketplace for a piece of equipment that finds the middle ground between a commercial zero-turn mower and a compact tractor.
“The 3400 is a great blend between a zero turn and a compact tractor, says Dustin Steiner, Product Development Specialist with Ventrac. Dustin adds, “It blends the maneuverability and visibility that a zero- turn gives you and the versatility and power of a compact tractor”. He also states, “What really sets the 3400 apart is the center articulating frame. It is a more maneuverable machine and offers increased stability while operating on slopes, plus leaves a lighter footprint to minimize turf disturbance.”
The 3400 tractor maintains the same professional quality craftsmanship as all other Ventrac tractors, with features that include hydrostatic all-wheel drive, a center-pivoting-articulating frame, power steering, and patented hand controls. The 3400 is available in two engine options, the 3400L gas engine and the 3400Y, diesel engine. Equipped with a patented tandem drive train, the 3400 efficiently transfers power to where it’s needed for unparalleled performance and power.
Over 15 commercial grade attachments make this machine a powerhouse of productivity for year round use. The Ventrac mount system allows operators to change attachments quickly and efficiently, moving from job to job with ease. Standard on the 3400 is Ventrac’s patented S.D.L.A. control, which allows for easy control of Speed, Direction, Lift and Auxiliary function all with one hand. A forward and reverse foot control pedal is also standard for operator option. The extra-large deluxe comfort seat with adjustable slide rails will provide many hours of riding comfort for operators.
