Thomas Feminella: HA! my wee little craftsman 18hp goes up much steeper hills.
NightTurkey82: Now that's a tractor
Denver Steiner: As a Ventrac owner myself, I can vouch that 30 degree slopes is much
steeper than it sounds. You don’t realize how steep 30 degree slopes are
until you try to walk up one. I don’t doubt that there are other straight
framed tractors that can climb or descend slopes as long as they are going
up and down, but try safely turning around on a 30 degree slope, or having
your brakes go out coming down the slope. Ventrac+Duals+Engine Rated for 30
degrees=much safer slope mowing option
robb4747: safely on 30 degrees? any mower can do that if you have enough balls
xIntoThePitx: Pretty slick rig
henrythomas123: @nnos4rott2 YEA BITCH!!!!
chopperkid13: Man I tell you what, QuakerState and Chevrolet helped up put together a
real nice car this season and with the help of some new sponsors like
Goodyear and Tampax we were able to get it dialed in real nice to this here
track. We had some real nice weather here at Talladega this weekend, kept
the track nice and sticky so we could really burry into those corners and
put on a good show for y'all....... Oh wait........ He is talking about
tractors and not NASCAR???
FatCatRoR: But does it blend?
kerrywsmyth: you said it: "SAFELY". Anyone with enough balls can take a risk.
Mike Pasquariello: thats cool i want one
kerrywsmyth: While I am interested in this mower because I do cut on ridiculously steep
hills, I also like the idea that it can go over very muddy areas because I
get stuck with those types of lawns too.
nyylilg53: damn i bet they would flip crap if they saw a john deer
Matthew Macdonald: same technology as articulated dump trucks.... but alot smaller and only
209vaughn: I've seen remote control slope mowers that do 70 degrees.
nyylilg53: they should not have a belt set up they should have a driveshaft set up on
FLY172M: @slapperdepap Most important thing on the machine.
covey88: I bet that mower costs a pretty penny.
adamus77: lol what a joke this is...i work at a golf course and our Kuboto 22 and 30
hp front deck mowers mow hills twice as steep as on this video.
nnos4rott2: its just a copycat of the 4wd steiner, which has been around for over 25yrs
HybridPineapple: Makes it safe.
thirdwavehiphop: We use one at our course in Oxford, OH. Incredible machine. Effing Mule man
climb some mountains
slapperdepap: does it have a cupholder
DamnStraightM35A2: Hell, I could mow this on my late 70's Hustler Excel three wheel zero
Ventrac: @slapperdepap Sure does.
canubelieve: This has to cost gobs of dough
Ventrac: @robb4747 Check out the video response to this video "Slope Mowing with
Ventrac" . Mr. Wiley does a good job of explaining why an All Wheel Drive
Ventrac with a articulating frame, wide wheel base, and low center of
gravity has an advantage on slopes over traditional tractors.
StarVoyager9: Won't a 4x4 zero turn mower do the same job? A Toro ground master or a
Ventrac: @nnos4rott2 Actually you are sort of correct. Ventrac was designed by the
original Steiner brothers, the same engineers that built Steiner from 1975
to 1988. Ventrac was started in 1998 by the same brothers. They took there
original design & improved several things including offering more powerful
engine options, better hand controls, standard roll bar for safety, and
integrated weight transfer system for improved performance on slopes. See
the ventrac dot com "about" page for more info.
trailmix451: i hate cutting wet slopes with a zero turn this looks alot better
La Coka Nostra: My Kubota B2620 will easily go up and down that hill, it just wont drive
horizontally on the hill, too high center of weight.
jordan cavinee: understand that most commercial guys, like myself will never have one of
these, yea it looks nice but we dont have time to buy a mower just for
slopes, in my opinion is that exmark has a low center of gravity and its
the best mower on the market
mcscheelar: dam that ride is dope nigga you driving dat crap ida hood
SlaterGS: @209vaughn It would seem like anything over 45 degrees would tend to slide,
unless you had a winch. I saw a remote controlled slope mower the other day
that does 55º and that is with a hydraulic winch (41º w/o it). However most
remote control mowers tend to be slower. This tractor looks impressive for
a riding mower (especially with a wider mowing deck).
RemoteMowersCom: Very impressive machine. It is unique and useful to those especially in
mountain regions. Hats off guys!
So1othurn: @FatCatRoR its a mower. what do you think?
Angel Slayer: HILL BILLIES
