Our video crew took a trip this past fall to once again visit the Pete Dye Course at French Lick, located in French Lick, Indiana. The maintenance of this beautiful course is headed by superintendent, Russ Apple, along with his dedicated crew. They keep a tight ship on how this course is properly maintained and our film team wanted to see how they handled their annual fall cleanup with the help of Ventrac.
To be a professional athlete, it takes hard work and dedication. It takes toughness and durability to reach peak performance. Preparation requires research and study to stay on top of the game. Former New York Giants Super Bowl XXV Quarterback, Jeff Hostetler, knows all about what it takes. We recently spoke with Jeff at his home, where he talked with us about his professional career and how he maintains his home and property with a Ventrac tractor.
It could not have been a better day for the annual 2010 Ventrac dealer meeting in Orrville, Ohio. The weather held out and it was perfect with plenty of sunshine throughout the day. There were plenty of great people that came out to network and share, while some came to try out a tractor and a new attachment they may not have used before. Dealers and salesmen came from all over, including Michigan, Canada, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and all around Ohio.

Living in a part of the country where hills, ravines and slopes are part of the landscape, Jack Wiley knows first hand the difficulty in safely mowing these treacherous areas. Jack owns a Ventrac 4231 Turbo Diesel model compact tractor along with 10 Ventrac attachments and he was happy to share his thoughts and experiences with us.
“Over the years there have been 9 major incidents in my immediate neighborhood where 2 wheel drive lawn and garden tractors have either rolled or run-away downhill out of control. Some of these resulted in injuries. With the Ventrac I now safely mow some of the steeper slopes belonging to my neighbors in addition to my own. They are grateful for the assistance, and I get to enjoy the ride. For me, mowing is a recreational experience!”
Jack has a real need for his Ventrac and uses it for many different applications and the compact tractor serves as his workhorse as well as being one of his major hobbies. Besides maintaining his own home, he also grooms the grounds of his church and trails at a wetland preserve, so his Ventrac gets a real workout.
