Louisville Switching is now the proud owner of a new title: OEM Kalmar/Ottawa Dealer. Although the lengthy due diligence process and extensive inspection by Ottawa brings great honor for Louisville Switching, it won't result in a huge change for customers.

In the video below, Chris Troutt explains how Ottawa mounts its transmissions vs. how the competition mounts transmissions. 

With Ottawa's new iPad app, Louisville Switching is able to see a direct comparison between what Ottawa offers and what competitors offer. One example of this is the transmission. The transmissions on the Ottawa Yard Truck are built on a shock absorber, so when the truck is going through bumpy terrain, the transmission is not taking a direct impact or beating on the frame.

The best way to see the superiority of an Ottawa is in person. We will bring an Ottawa yard truck to your facility and show you in person the efficiency and overall superiority of an Ottawa switcher first hand. A video is a great way to show you the basics, but when you see an Ottawa in action in person, you will know for sure all the quality that goes into the engineering and manufacturing of these yard trucks. 

When you invest in equipment you need a guarantee that it will deliver what it promises. When you step into an Ottawa cab, then move and spot a trailer in a third of the time of a road truck, you will wonder why you didn't make this move sooner. Often referred to as yard horses, the Ottawa Switcher is the Thoroughbred of yard horses. Based in Kentucky, Louisville Switching is centrally located to provide products and services to all the areas surrounding the bluegrass state, both timely and professionally. We have clients in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and beyond.

Call Chris Troutt today and request a demo. Be warned now that Chris on many occasion has been pleaded with to leave the Ottawa on site by the drivers. One of the great things about working with Louisville Switching is we don't simply sell you a yard truck, but we provide high quality, on going maintenance and 24 hour on call servicing. Time saved is money saved. Call us today for your free demo at  502.935.5838.
