John Deere Gator Snow Blade Options for Clearing a Path

November 14, 2016

John Deere Gator owners can use their equipment 365 days a year, whether it be for work or sheer entertainment. This includes during and after a snowfall. We’ve already discussed ways to winterize Gators in the past, and today we are going to continue down this path.

John Deere Gator Snow Blade Attachments

John Deere Gator snow blades can be made even more operator-friendly with the addition of the following attachments.

POWERtach Markers

powertach-markers

Sometimes the heaviest snow can make it hard to see the edges of the blade. Adding these markers to the blade will make it easier to see and remain in control.

POWERtach Poly Wear Bar

powertach-poly-wear-bar

By attaching this wear bar to the blade, operators can push snow with confidence that they won’t damage their equipment on road or land obstacles.

POWERtach Rubber Squeegee

powertach-rubber-squeegee

Adding a squeegee to Gator blades makes it easier to remove the snow from fragile surfaces that could be damaged from a metal blade’s composition.

POWERtach Skid Shoes

powertach-skid-shoes

These cast-iron shoes provide operators with up to three times the wear resistance than standard steel shoes.

PowerTach Deflector Shield

powertach-deflector-shield

Without a deflector shield, it’s possible for snow to climb up over the plow and into the windshield. Operators that are dealing with a lot of snow should consider adding this attachment to keep their view clear.
