How To Clear Debris Using A Root Grapple

This video explains how to move a big pile of brush with the Frontier AV20G Root Grapple and a John Deere 5115M Utility Tractor.

What are these operators up against? This pile of brush has been built up over time and now the operators need to move it into a different area to make sure it’s disposed of properly. Be sure to watch the full video to learn essential aspects of clearing debris.

Tip: The key is to make sure you drive the grapple well below the bottom of the pile, even slightly penetrating the soil beneath.

How To Use A Wood Chipper

This video demonstrates how to turn a big, trashy pile of limbs into wood chips using a Frontier WC1205 Wood Chipper powered by a John Deere 5115M Utility Tractor.

Tip: When using a wood chipper, always feed the blunt end of the branch into the hopper first. Never stand directly in front of the hopper, so debris can’t fly back at you. If you can, chip a mixture of dry and green material to lubricate and cool the chipper’s knives.

How To Handle Large Round Bales

Learn how to spread a large round bale using a Frontier bale unroller and a John Deere 5115M Utility Tractor. As a bonus, this video explains how to get a large round bale into a round livestock feeder safely and easily. You’ll join an operator in the pasture to unroll a large round bale.

Tip: Don’t use a bale spear and loader to lift a round bale into the livestock feeder because you could damage the spear, loader, feeder or all three. Instead, after removing the bale wrap, set the bale on the ground and lift the livestock feeder over the top of the bale by hand.

How To Control Water Drainage

Here you’ll learn the equipment and attachments you need to do so.

Tip: Frontier has more than 600 implements that are available exclusively through your John Deere Dealer. For implements that will turn your tractor into the workhorse it was meant to be, think John Deere.
