Superior 4X4 Multi-Function Snow Plow Tractors - Ventrac, Steiner and Holder

All of our commercial and industrial grade Ventrac, Steiner and Holder snow plow tractors have superior snow and ice removal capabilities due to their maneuverability, traction, power and ease of use.  These rugged, 4X4 compact tractors offer ergonomically designed seats, easy to access controls and a wide assortment of snow removal attachments and options including heated cabs, snow blowers, snow plows (straight blades or v-blades), sweepers/brooms, scoops, sanders and de-icers.  And don't forget, these are all-season tractors: When the snow stops, these tractors become mowers, dozers, aerators, debris blowers and more.

articulating oscillating frames

center articulated frameAre you clearing snow from public spaces with lots of obstacles in the way like trash receptacles, lighting structures, planter boxes and more?  Then you need the exceptional maneuverability that comes from using a snow plow tractor with a center articulating frame. Unlike skid steers or straight frame tractors, our Ventrac, Steiner and Holder tractors all feature a center articulating frame.  This means the tractor frame pivots in the center which allows the rear wheels to follow in the same path as the front wheels.  This also means that the snow moving attachments - like snow blowers or blades or sweepers - follow the same path as the tractor, minimizing the space required to turn and reducing the likelihood of hitting an obstacle.

center oscillating frame
Are you clearing areas where you are constantly going up and down curbs? Or areas with lots of uneven surfaces? Then you need a compact tractor with a center oscillating frame. A center oscillating frame keeps all four wheels in contact with the ground providing you with maximum traction at all times. Ventrac, Steiner and Holder tractors all feature a center oscillating frame.

All-Season Tractor Mowers - Ideal for Contractors and Parks Professionals

Cushman Motor Company sells Ventrac and Steiner compact tractors and their associated tractor mounted mowing decks. Our tractor mowers are ideal for turf care professionals faced with the difficult task of mowing in tightly confined areas marked by multiple obstacles. Why?  Because all of our mowers feature a center articulating and oscillating frame that provides greater traction and the ability to avoid those obstacles.  Another top advantage of our tractor mowers?  They do more than mow.  Why limit your investment to just mowing when you can use our tractors to aerate, sweep, move snow and much more.
