While slopes and hillsides add aesthetics and dimension to the landscape, those same hills and slopes can be very dangerous to mow without the right type of slope mowing equipment. Ventrac tractors offer a unique combination of benefits that no other piece of equipment can offer. Discover how Ventrac is a safer solution to your slope mowing needs for slopes up to 30 degrees (58% grade).

Full-time, all-wheel hydrostatic drive delivers maximum performance and traction to help you get the job done.
Quick hydrostatic braking allows operators to confidently slow down, stop and reverse on hills.
For increased safety and stability on hillsides, add the optional wheel extensions (up to 25°) or dual wheels (up to 30°).
When the Ventrac encounters uneven terrain, the tractor frame will pivot in the center to maintain superior contact with the ground and better weight distribution of the tractor.

Due to the hilly terrain and wet ground no other tractor or truck could get in without leaving huge ruts in the lawn... Everyone on the job was amazed at the speed, agility, and ability of the Ventrac. I know of no other tractor that could have done this job and left the grounds looking virtually untouched.David RudolphView Full Testimonial
The traction advantages of 4 wheel drive are apparent to most people, but I find the secure down-slope braking ability to be one of the most important assets of this type of chassis.Jack WileyView Full Testimonial
