Laugh At Winter!
Your Neighbors Will Be Amazed At Your Snow Removal Prowess
Believe it or not, some people honestly and truly enjoy removing snow from their driveway. They don’t dread snowstorms at all. Instead, they revel in them.
Want to be one of these people?
Invest in a compact utility tractor from John Deere and discover the wonders of ingenious attachments and implements that will transform your tractor into a full-service year-round workhorse.
The John Deere stable of Frontier™ implements boasts more than 600 attachments to help you get the job done -- from post hole diggers and wood chippers to trenchers, buckets, tillers, plows, mowers and more.
Here are a few exceptional standouts for snow and ice removal that will make you the master of your winter realm. Remember: there’s more than one way to clear your driveway.
- The Versatility Of A Front Blade: A Frontier 60-inch Front Blade, paired with a H120 Loader and a John Deere 1025R Compact Utility Tractor is both easy to hook-up and incredibly adaptable to your terrain. This front blade features 5 angled positions and can be adjusted with a simple pin-and-clip system to push snow in any direction. The trip-edge feature protects the blade, the loader and the tractor if an obstacle gets in the way.
- Another Plus: Plow guides help the driver keep tabs on the blade edges, even in deep snow. Skid shoes protect the bottom edge of the blade and reduce pushing gravel off the road.
- A Rear Blade With All The Angles: Easy to adjust, a Frontier 72-inch Rear Blade, mated to a John Deere 3032E Compact Utility Tractor, can be tilted up and down from one end to the other, or angled with one end more forward than the other. With the simple pin-and-clip system, the rear blade can even pivot 360-degrees.
- Another Plus: The blade can be offset up to a foot, to the left or right, so it sits outside the path of the tractor. This means snow can be removed from a soft shoulder while driving on a firm road surface. Moreover, because the blade swings 360-degrees, a pile of snow can be pushed instead of pulled.
- Take It Away With A Materials Bucket: With a 300E Loader and a 61-inch Bucket, piles of snow can be scooped up and deposited well off the beaten path, freeing up more room for future snowfalls.
- Another Plus: With the iMatch™ Quick Hitch, hooking and unhooking these implements is as easy as making snow angels. Everything falls into place with ease.
- Prevention Is Better Than Cure With A Broadcast Spreader: Ice is not nice. Snow is a hassle to remove, but ice is even harder to chisel away, The best solution is to prevent it from forming in the first place. A Frontier Broadcast Spreader is easy to attach to to your tractor and a great way to widely scatter salt, sand or other chemical ice-melt products.
- Another Plus: This is a 3-season tool that can spread fertilizer in the spring and seed in the fall. Moreover, the polyethylene hopper and stainless steel components are resistant to salt and chemical corrosion. Plus, the Feed Rate Lever is conveniently located inside the cabin.
- Ready! Aim! Chute! With A Tractor-Powered Snowblower: Attach this Frontier SB1174 Snowblower to a 4052M Compact Utility Tractor and say “goodbye” to your unwanted snow. Hooking up is a piece of cake with the iMatch Quick Hitch. Then, adjust the skid shoes to provide an inch of ground clearance to protect both the snowblower and road surface. Swivel the chute angle to the preferred side of the road (avoid blowing snow into the wind). Finally, adjust the deflector angle for distance. Maintain a steady moderate speed to avoid overtaxing impeller and auger.
- Another Plus: Shoveling snow by hand can be downright dangerous. A 17-year study (from 1990 to 2006) conducted by the Center for Injury Research at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio revealed that, on average, 11,000 people in the U.S. go to a hospital emergency room every year for an injury related to shoveling snow. With a tractor-powered snowblower, you can avoid this type of accident.
