https://www.ventrac.com/ Today we’re on a property doing a basic maintenance job where we are mowing and edging with the Ventrac. We first mowed the yard with a 60-inch finish deck and left beautiful stripes. We then edged the entire driveway with the Ventrac Edger attachment. This edger is designed to maintain sidewalks, driveways and curbs as well as flower and mulch beds.As a contractor, you can add extra value for your customers by offering attachments like the edger to your services. For maximum productivity, the optional blower kit will help blow the debris back into the yard and makes this job a true one-pass operation.The Ventrac Edger attachment is much faster than doing this with a string trimmer or a powered walk-behind edger. It performs well in situations like this where you need to remove a decent amount of material from the concrete edge.This driveway is a good example of how capable the edger is on curved areas as well. It can also be applied to areas like golf course paths, corporate complexes and more intricate driveways.It is important to take the time to set up the edger before operation. The edger responds very well to all of the adjustments that can be made on it so you’ll want to take the time to set it up correctly. You can fine-tune the disc angle and the depth adjustment is controlled by the left front wheel height.Equipment featured in this video: 4500Z Tractor, MS600 Side Discharge Finish Mower, ED202 EdgerProducts featured in this video:Ventrac 4500: https://www.ventrac.com/products/tractors/4500 ED202 Edger: https://www.ventrac.com/products/attachments/ed202 Finish Mower: https://www.ventrac.com/products/attachments/msmtmu KA160 Blower: https://www.ventrac.com/products/attachments/ed202 For more information, visit https://www.ventrac.com/ Find a dealer near you! https://www.ventrac.com/dealers Get a FREE catalog! https://www.ventrac.com/contact/catalog Subscribe here! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0aiC7V2JS3nh11R5tRuIUw Connect with Us!Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ventrac/ Instagram - @ventrac_tractorsTwitter - @ventracTranscription:Today we're on a property doing some basic maintenance with the Ventrac The first thing we did was that we mowed the yard with a 60 inch finish deck and left beautiful stripes. After we got done with that we put the edger on an edged this entire driveway which hadn't been done in a while. As a contractor you can add extra value to your customers by adding other attachments like the edger as a benefit to the contractor the edger is much faster than doing this with a string trimmer by hand or with a powered edger that's walked behind. This edger also does a better job in conditions like this where the grass is very close to the concrete and it hasn't been edged in a long time and you're actually trying to take away a good bit of material. This driveway in particular is a good example of how capable the edger is on curved areas as well. This comes in handy on intricate driveways like this but also in corporate complexes or on a golf course cart path. You'll also notice that on this edger we have the optional blower kit so as we move along the blower is blowing the debris back into the yard. In some spots here where we're removing a lot of material it doesn't send it very far but if you're just edging to clean up pass and you're getting grass mostly with a little bit of loose soil the edger will make all of that stuff disappear so it's truly a one pass operation Before you start using the Ventrac edger it's important that you invest the time to set it up correctly. Before we started this driveway I took about 10 to 15 minutes to adjust the disc angle. Since we wanted to be more aggressive I ran this disc toed-out which means the leading edge of the disc is further away from the driveway than the following edge of the disc. The other adjustment I made was the depth adjustment. We control that on the ventrac edger with the left front wheel by raising it or lowering it so that it allows the disc to sink further or not quite as far into the ground as you're cutting. An edger responds very well to all of the adjustments that can be made on it so before you start a job like this make sure you invest the time to make those adjustments and test in an area so that you know you're getting exactly the results that you want For reference in this video we used a 4500Z an MS600 side discharge mower deck and the ED202 edger.
