By Alistair December 19, 2020 07:34 Updated

The versatile Ventrac all-terrain multi-purpose tractor is available with over 30 attachments and can be used for a multitude of turf maintenance operations. Winter is the perfect opportunity for drainage and irrigation work, so Ventrac’s KY400 Trencher attachment is an ideal choice when installing or repairing irrigation systems, digging drainage channels or laying 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 pipe/cable installed and aggregate topping, 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 turf managers’ ‘Swiss Army Knife’, allowing multiple tasks to accomplished, year-round.
