Ventrac Tractors, Steiner Tractors, Terramite and IHI products at Rondout Valley Engine Service

Q&A with Tony K


A big part of RVES's value to its customers is the personal service and advice we offer. Owner Tony Kawalchuk has been in the business for well over thirty years, not only in sales, service and repair – he's actually had a hand in designing some of the most revolutionary advancements in tractor technology. Additionally, he's led factory training classes, and has even written the curriculum that the trainees learn from. Over all these years, he's amassed an incredible amount of knowledge and wisdom that places him firmly among the nation's elite in this complex field.

So a logical feature for our website is this: Q&A with Tony K!  It's a special forum where you get to ask Tony about your most vexing problem, pose your most unanswerable question, and discover what other customers have had issues with. After you submit your question, Tony K will answer it himself, or do his level best to find an answer for you. Just click here to open a pre-addressed message in your own email client, and let's get you some help!

We’re always looking for great ways to help our customers at RVES!






We’re looking forward to helping you at Rondout Valley Engine Service,
your friendly local Ventrac Dealer!

We’re Kickin’ It Up A Notch
On Customer Service!

Anytime, anywhere; we're here for our customers. You can call us whenever, day or night, and we'll help you with whatever issue you have. Call Tony K on his cell, and he'll make time for you. We may not always be able to answer your question right that second (if we're on the road making a delivery or up to our elbows in an engine rebuild), but you will have our immediate attention; when we get to the resources you need you'll hear from us: that's a promise.
