Ventrac on NFL Monday Night Football

Posted on December 17, 2010 Tagged in Uncategorized

This past Monday, Ventrac Salesperson, Trevor Ryan was unwinding in his hotel room. Monday Night Football was on TV, but Trevor was distracted by e-mails and other business he was attending to. The Minnesota Vikings were playing the New York Giants and the game had been moved from Minneapolis to Detroit after the Metrodome roof collapsed under the weight of heavy snow.  During a break in the action, the TV announcers cut to a shot of the 17-inches of snow that had fallen in Minneapolis, and this shot caught Trevor’s attention:

There it was, a Ventrac plowing deep snow in Minneapolis. The full game can be viewed on NFL Game Rewind. Check out 2:52 to go in the 1st quarter.

Ventrac leaf vacuum collection system

Ventrac cleaning up a camp with the Vacuum Collection system

Fall is a colorful time of year, but collecting those vibrant leaves isn’t always a pretty job once they hit the ground!  It can be a dreaded job!   Ventrac equipment helped take hours out of the backbreaking, labor-some task of leaf collection at a near-by camp this past weekend.   Volunteers were on hand with two Ventrac tractors to help with the huge job of leaf clean up at Camp Luz,  a Christian camp, near Orrville, Ohio.     “Leaf collection for us has always been a really BIG job,” says  Andrew Michaels, Program Director for Camp Luz.   “In the past it has taken sometimes up to a month to get the leaves collected.”

The job was accomplished in just ONE day as two Ventracs, equipped with vacuum collection systems, buzzed around making quick work out of something that normally took weeks of hand raking and bagging.   Both tractors used the vacuum collection systems to round up the leaves but also switched to the blower attachment to gather any stray debris and leaves in tight areas amongst the trees.
