Ransomes has introduced their offering of Ventrac equipment which includes a compact tractor and many optional attachments, ideal for municipal and grounds maintenance applications.
The Ventrac 4500 diesel-powered tractor features a 25hp Kubota liquid-cooled three-cylinder diesel engine and a hydrostatic all-wheel drive. The versatile machine also features a centre-pivoting-articulating frame, integrated weight transfer traction control, 16 available front-mounted attachments and patented hand controls. With the optional dual wheel kit, the 4500 can operate on slopes of up to 30 degrees.
Ergonomically friendly controls have been developed which include an easy-to-reach automotive style parking brake and a relocated weight transfer lever that 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 Ventrac 4500Y is perfectly suited for landscape contractors, municipalities, schools and universities that need to maintain large acreages of property all year round. The model 4500Y provides an excellent combination of power and versatility and comes backed with a two-year unlimited warranty.
Alan Prickett, Managing Director at Ransomes, said: "The Ventrac tractor and attachments is a fantastic addition to our current product offering. The range and diversity of the attachments is vast and I believe these products will provide customers with much more flexibility and choice."
