 Wish List For Your Tractor??

I wondered if your guys had a wish list for your tractors? If so, post it here. I know one manufacturer that reads these posts, so you never know!!

 Wish List For Your Tractor??

I own a Ventrac 4000 with a 60" deck. Three things that I would change are:

1. Some way to keep the pully cover up in the air while I am lifting the deck. I have had it bang down right next to my fingers a couple of times which I am sure would have hurt quite a lot. I did solve the problem by taking a bungee cord and hook it to the lid and then to the bottom-front of the deck.

2. An analog, (needle) type of tach. The one I have is small, right behind the steering column, and stopped working after 44 hours. It also collects moisture, why I do not know, but I saw the same thing on three other Ventracs.

3. I would make the instrument panel a little more ergonomic. I always believe that looks also helps to sell, and we could improve the dash looks a bit.

BTW: I LOVE my tractor.

An after-market seat assembly that would rotate 20 degrees or so in order to take the strain off the neck from looking backwards.

An air conditioned cab for a Kubota B2400. Man, it's hot in Texas already. August should be fun.

 Wish List For Your Tractor??

I am sorry that I did not clarify my initial post. Since this topic area is for articulated tractors, I assumed that you knew that my post asking for a wish list would be as well.

What I'm looking for is a wish list for your articulated tractor in hopes that the manufacturer's reps who read these posts, will take some of the ideas and maybe incorporate them into their design. In fact, I plane to take the list and forward it to Steiner and Venture Products.

Response to pequeajim 2000-07-19. The VENTRAC mower deck belt cover does not need to be lifted up when tilting the deck. There are two options: 1) Adjust the deck to a low cutting position. Tilt the deck, remove the pins(Pins can be removed first), complete the tilt and reinstall the lock pins. This can be done by accessing the pin location from the front, between the carrier and the deck. 2) If preferred the cover can easily be removed by lifting it up, giving it a slight nudge to the left and dislodging it from the hinges. All 5 VENTRAC mowers have this feature. The tach. and instrument panel are in a current evaluation/revision process.

 Wish List For Your Tractor??

I took delivery on my Ventrac 4000 on 5/12/2000 with a 60" mower, Dozer Blade and Slip Scoop. I couldn't be happier with it or the dealer that I purchased it through. On my wish list is a PTO for the 3-point hitch and maybe a log splitter that would work off of the Hydrualics on the 3-point. I would also like some kind of warning/safety light kit to add to the unit for when on the road or working near the road. It looks like Ohio maybe requiring lights on all compact tractors as they have on the big boys for road travel now.
