 Ventrac 3000

Well the Pro for it are this. It is 40inch with and 72inch length and 710 pounds and 26inch turning radius. Its about the same size as a garden tractor. 52inch and 60inch mowing deck. 30 or 48inch slip scoops and 48inch excavator bucket. 48 or 60 inch dozer blade. 70inch terra rake. 42inch snow blower. Cons would be that. It cannot take a tiller. Air cooled engine vrs a Liquid cooled which is more suited for rugged work. Great for mowing or cleaning out horse stalls. But if you want it for any gardening task's it is really not suited for that. Have you looked at a Steiner 410 for about $8,795. It is tiller capable and takes many of the same attachments as the Ventrac 3000. Both tractors were invented by the same family. another con for the Ventrac right now is lack of dealerships. If your buying the Ventrac for commercial use it will probly be fine But if your buying for homeowner Use I would go with the Steiner 410 20hp diminsions are very close to the Ventrac 3000 and it weights 240 pounds more. The 410 is 950 pounds. How far do you have to travel for dealer support for the Ventrac. Well go luck in your purchasing deccision.

The ventrac is still undergoing testing in the field by it's customers and many have had problems and recalls. Steiner tractors have had problems also but that was a long time ago. Steiner does not put tractors in the feild without testing them first. More equipment dealers for steiner then for ventrac. The new 415 steiner has 23hp and is priced around $8,900.00 that is alot smaller in price for a better machine.

steiner brothers designed both the steiner and the ventrac lines. both are excellent machines! however, the single most successful 4x4 unit with the least problems has been the ventrac 3000, bar none. as for problems, when steiner tractor increased horse power in order to compete with the ventrac line, they did experience substantial hydraulic over heating.

 Ventrac 3000

Well I took the plunge,

I bought the Ventrac 3000. I went to both Steiner and Ventrac dealers. As with all dealers some were good some didn't put much effort out. I liked the out front design of the 3000 over the look around the nose of the Steiner 418. Pricing was within $1000 the Steiner being more. I should get it in 2 weeks. They 5 instock 4 were presold and one was the demo. The next 3 coming in were presold which includes mine. I would have liked the generator but the 3000 doesn't accept it where the Steiner did. It's cheaper to buy one from someone else anyway. I will use it residentially. I'm debating which attacments to get for now. I ordered it with 52" mower w/mulch kit, 42" snow thrower, weights and tow hitch. I'm on the fence about the front blade, blower and broom. I may get those as the check book permits in the future.

Hey Dan we just started selling the Ventrac line so I don't really have any used Ventracs but I do have used Steiner equipment. I will look around today for a used Ventrac for you. What model did you want? How much do you mow and what other attachments do you need. Remember most Steiner attachments will fit the Ventrac. How long can you wait for a good used one or demo?

As for attachments buy stock in a V belt company as my dad has one and it likes to eat belts.He also has a 60 inch mower and it does not discharge the grass very good most clogs up in around the baffles they put in there.It will however go most places you can't even walk.
