Ventrac, by Venture Products, Inc. unveiled a new Model 4500 tractor at a recent International Dealer Sales Meeting. The sales meeting was held in Canton, Ohio where Ventrac dealerships were invited to get the first look at the new tractor. Over 10 different countries were represented in the dealership attendance, with some traveling from as far away as Japan. The meeting culminated with a hands-on demonstration held at Malone University, where dealers operated the new 4500 tractor and experienced the features and benefits of the new model. Dealers tried their hand at stump grinding, trenching, edging, tilling, mowing, aerating and, much more.
Tim Jeffries, Director of Sales, said dealers were excited about the meeting. Tim added, “It was awesome to have our dealers together for a few days. They are excited about the new benefits and features of the new tractor and the direction that Ventrac is heading.”
The new 4500 is the perfect balance of building on the company’s past while redefining the future. With new powerful engine options, more safety features, enhanced technology and easy, comfortable handling, the 4500 will soon become a customer favorite in Ventrac’s lineup.
New Engine Options
New multiple engine options offer powerful performance choices in the Briggs and Stratton, Kawasaki and Kubota models. The new 4500 will provide a propane ‘green’ engine option with the Kubota WG972-GL. When adding the optional propane kit, this Bi-Fuel Ready tractor offers gas and/or propane fuel operation for fuel savings and cleaner burning emissions and can reduce your carbon monoxide output up to 90%.*
Ease of Use and Comfort
Ergonomically friendly controls include an easy to reach automotive style parking brake, and a conveniently located PTO belt tensioner. The relocated weight transfer lever allows operators to easily adjust for increased stability on slopes and for increased lift capacity.
The sealed electrical system protects fuses, relays and terminals from corrosion and outdoor elements. A new automotive style wire harness allows a quick ‘plug and play’ feature for ease of connecting optional tractor accessories.
The optional digital slope indicator with warning light integrates into the dash, providing easy visibility, and allows operators to continuously monitor the degree of slope operation.
The extra large premium comfort seat with adjustable slide rails will provide many hours of riding comfort for operators.
The tractor features an enclosed muffler for greater visibility and minimized exhaust exposure. Operators of the new 4500 are kept informed of operational temperatures, oil pressure or low voltage levels with the enhanced instrumentation of the new 6-function warning gauge.
New technology can be seen in the electronic instrument panel on the newly redesigned dash. With tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, hour meter and temperature gauge, operators stay well informed.
A battery disconnect switch feature fully disables the electrical system and includes a fail safe disconnect.
