At Louisville Switching we get pretty excited when we sell a new Ottawa Yard Truck to one of our customers because we know the benefits of buying one of these powerful machines. Although we will gladly sell you a brand new, shiny terminal tractor, we get just as excited when our customers go the refurbished yard dog route. We use genuine OEM parts in our refurbishments, which means you still end up with the highest quality terminal tractor, and you don't have to settle for a lesser brand to meet you budget constraints.

Chris Troutt is a great guy! He is talented, service oriented, and would give you the shirt off his back. He would also give you a hat if you needed one. Chris never intended to collect so many hats, it just kind of happened. With his job, Chris is regularly meeting with new companies that can benefit from Louisville Switching’s Ottawa Switchers. When Chris has shared the amazing benefits of an Ottawa Switcher with new companies, it happens. Somehow, some way, Chris usually walks away with a hat. He doesn’t ask for them, he is like a hat magnet.
When you walk into Chris’ office and look up at his file cabinet, you cannot help but notice the rows and stacks of hats. The count was at 35 last we checked. There is every color you can imagine and every logo too. Occasionally one of the crew will pass by and tell Chris that their hat got lost or it is just worn out and Chris just says, “pick one out,” and points to the top of his file cabinet.
Chris jokes that he would give a hat to everyone who buys or leases an Ottawa Switcher. In truth, he knows Ottawa is the best in the business and our customers will thank him eternally for introducing them to the Ottawa brand. One of the frequent compliments Chris receives is when he pulls an Ottawa Switcher to demo for a new company and there is a little resistance from the drivers. When Chris goes to leave with the switcher the drivers demand that Chris leave it there. With a minimum of 3 to 1 ratio over a standard semi-truck, the Ottawa Switcher will dramatically improve your time-efficiency and save you money. You may even get a hat out of it.

Whenever you need to make a copy you Xerox the original. This is the common lingo that is used today in the business world. This is almost an expression of endearment. The copy machine that Xerox produced was superior in almost every way to all of the competing brands. Xerox dominated the market for this type of equipment. The impression that business people acquired over time was that your copy machine surely must be a Xerox, and, if it wasn’t, then it should have been a Xerox.

About a year ago, we introduced a free guide on our website called the Ottawa/Kalmar User Guide. You can download it for free here.

At Louisville Switching we like selling yard dogs, or terminal tractors for those who like the technical term. When we sell a new Ottawa or Kalmar truck, we get excited. We get just as excited when we sell a refurbished unit—sometimes more excited because we know that we’re helping our customers even more in this tight economy.

Louisville Switching has been in business for more than 30 years. We’ve learned a lot and have grown to become one of the most trusted sources for leasing and selling Ottawa/Kalmar trucks. We’ve compiled some of what we’ve learned into a user’s guide, created especially for safety managers, facilities managers, logistics managers, or current Ottawa/Kalmar users. This guide offers ways to help you reduce workmen’s comp claims and increase the efficiency of your yard operation. The Ottawa/Kalmar User’s Guideincludes:
