The versatile Ventrac all-terrain multi-purpose tractor is available with over 30 attachments and can be used for a multitude of greenkeeping operations including drainage and irrigation work.

With its KY400 Trencher attachment, it’s an ideal choice when installing or repairing irrigation systems, drainage channels or underground cables.

It can create a trench up to 1.02 metres (40 inches) in depth with a 14 cm wide (5.5 inch) cut and is designed with dual ‘Push-N-Pull’ cylinders to assure positive boom control for digging, boom lift, and transport.

The heavy-duty carbide tips of the trenching chain allow operators to cut through tough terrain, providing excellent performance in a variety soil conditions. The digging teeth bolt onto the chain for easy replacement. The 4500 tractor’s compact design and ground pressure of just 6 psi, allows it to operate the Trencher in tight spaces with minimal turf damage, especially in wet conditions.

Once the trench is complete with aggregate and pipe / cable installed, simply switch out the trencher for the power blade to backfill the disturbed area. Changing between implements is simple and quick, adding to the versatility of this machine.

The Ventrac 4500 with its multitude of implements is justly described as the greenkeepers ‘Swiss Army Knife’, allowing multiple tasks to accomplished, year-round. Forget the notion of one dedicated machine for one single task; demo a Ventrac to see how it’s versatility can work on your golf course.
