"Ultra Groom Van"
When Wag'n Tails introduces a new model of grooming van, we always like to get feedback from owners of our vans and from groomers in general. With that in mind, we present the most frequently asked questions about the all new Wag'n Tails Ultra Groom.
Why the Dodge ProMaster chassis?
The ProMaster has many attributes that make it an ideal platform for a grooming van. The two that stood out to us the most were fuel efficiency and low cost of ownership. Owners are reporting mileage in the 16-17 MPG range, which is fantastic when you consider that it uses regular unleaded gasoline. That puts it on par with our Endurance Sprinter van. Keeping your costs of operation low means more money in your pocket and facts like 10,000 mile oil change intervals will do just that!
Since this is a new van, is this an unproven Dodge model?
The ProMaster has been around for many years in Europe as the Fiat Ducato. In fact, it's been popular in Europe for decades, over 4.5 million sold and in its 3rd generation, it is a proven winner! Our version, the ProMaster, is built in North America. It uses the venerable Chrysler Pentastar V-6 engine found in millions of Chrysler products and it's mated to a sweet shifting 6 speed automatic transmission. Dodge has the confidence to adorn the Ultra Groom with a 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty in addition to the 3 year, 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty. Drive with confidence in the new Wag'n Tails Ultra Groom.
Why is front wheel drive important?
First and foremost, for any of you that have to drive in rain and especially for you in the northern climates, better traction in slippery conditions! Winter and wet roadways are hard enough for a mobile groomer so anything that makes it easier is a huge benefit!
The Ultra Groom is built on 2500 chassis and you always said that they aren't heavy duty enough with your other grooming vans.what gives?
This is another happy surprise Dodge gave us when we began studying the preliminary weights and measures well over a year ago. The 2500 has as much carrying capacity as other 3500 class vans. Part of it is the FWD saving weight in the back of the van but there's more to it than that.
Is it a Wag'n Tails?
The Ultra Groom is 100% Wag'n Tails and it's built to the same exacting standards as our other awesome products including National Electric Code, Underwriter's Laboratories standards, Standardized Plumbing Code, etc.
Does anyone else go to such great lengths to ensure the safety of their owners?
Why does the Ultra Groom use LED lighting?
The biggest advantage to LED strips is to reduce shadowing. Our Cree LED technology is brighter and unlike old LED technology that looks like a spot light, these lights radiate light broadly to kill shadows and dark areas. Plus they last longer, use less energy and don't add heat to the grooming environment.
Why is the cabinetry design different in the Ultra Groom?
Slider cabinet--Our owners asked us for an easy way to access combs, brushes, blades, clippers and other high use tools that didn't leave them exposed to the harsh grooming environment all day long. We were able to add a slide out cabinet that keeps the tools protected, it's easy to access and takes up miniscule floor space.
Why is there a locking cabinet in overhead?
This is another good example of Wag'n Tails implementing a suggestion from our owner body. Our owners asked us for a lockable compartment inside the salon. They needed a place for a phone, MP3 player, purse, wallet, I Pad, cash and other valuables. It's lighted when the door opens and it includes dual USB ports for charging or listening through the optional premium stereo system..
What prompted you to add the first aid kits?
Yet another suggestion from our owner body was to provide a kit for accidents. Inspired by adding one for people, we asked ourselves, what about one for the pets, too? We listened to you and us, so we added a first aid cabinet that has one kit for humans and another kit designed specifically for our furry friends.
Can I still have a Clipper Vac and an inverter?
Absolutely! The Ultra Groom is available with of our most popular options so you don't have to compromise. The TV, DVD player, stereo, 2nd overhead vent, anti-freeze system, Kool Dry dryer, backup camera solar panel and of course, graphics are all available.
