Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of having the John Deere 44-inch snowblower and the John Deere 47-inch snowblower on your side this winter.
The John Deere 44-Inch Snowblower
The John Deere 44-inch snowblower is nimble and maneuverable, and may seem small, but it packs a hefty punch. It works especially well in deep snow conditions and is especially effective at throwing wet and heavy snow. This model is great for driveway use, large walkways, and sidewalks, and is a huge help to landowners or maintenance crews removing snow from recreational or industrial parks, where snow must be thrown a great distance.
Key Specs & Features of the John Deere 44-Inch Snowblower
Let’s dive deeper into the many ways the John Deere 44-inch snowblower can make life easier for you this winter.
The 2-stage design of the John Deere 44-inch snowblower gives it additional power and capability in wet, heavy snow or in deep snow conditions when compared to single-stage models.
Second-Stage Blower Fan
Formed from the same durable and rust-resistant, ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polyethylene material used in the Power Flow™ blower fan, this heavy-duty part won’t distort in cold conditions, keeping you up and running for as long as you need.
Easy Front-Hitch Attachment
This John Deere snowblower easily slips over the front hitch and locks into place with the attached snap pins – no additional tools or parts needed!
Spout and Deflector
Made from high-density polyethylene material that will not dent or rust and resists snow buildup, the spout, and deflector on the John Deere 44-inch snowblower is more durable and reliable than the polypropylene materials used by some other manufacturers.
Optional Brush Guard
This versatile John Deere snowblower gets even more useful with the capability to keep your brush guard in place while in use. Protect your tractor from spiky ice clumps and hard snow chunks with a combination of both the 44-inch snowblower and a brush guard for easy maintenance all winter long.

The John Deere 47-Inch Snowblower
The John Deere 47-inch snowblower combines all the great features of the 44-inch snowblower with a larger, more efficient size. For those with a lot of space to clear, such as at a commercial site or around the farmyard, this tough John Deere snowblower can help you get the job done faster than ever.
Key Specs & Features of the John Deere 47-Inch Snowblower
Below are a few of the key features that make the 47-inch snowblower such a great addition to your winter lineup.
The 2-stage design of the John Deere 47-inch snowblower is especially useful for industrial park or recreational park applications, where more snow needs to be cleared more quickly, and thrown a long distance. This additional distance is usually not possible with single-stage models and can require a lot of extra effort to clear away thrown snow that ends up in the wrong place.
Second-Stage Blower Fan
This durable blower fan’s durable material has the same cold-weather characteristics as the compounds used in snowmobile track rollers. This keeps the fan from bending or going out of balance, which reduces maintenance time and increases efficiency.
Spout and Deflector
Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is the makeup for the John Deere 44-inch snowblower’s discharge spout and deflector. This means it will resist snow build-up, which is a common delay-causing issue with competitor machines.
Adjustable Skid Shoes
This John Deere snowblower also has “skid shoes”, which help control the height of the snowblower’s cutting edge, as well as the spout direction. This makes it especially useful on gravel driveways where the height of the roadbed may not always be even and helps keep the snowblower from sucking up gravel and spraying it everywhere.
Powerful In-Line Drive
The John Deere 47-inch snowblower boasts a powerful in-line drive belt for efficient transfer of power and dependable operation, as well as a spring-loaded idler pulley to keep the belt at the perfect operating tension.
What Models Does a John Deere 47-Inch Snowblower Fit?
This versatile John Deere snowblower is compatible with Select Series™ X530, X534, X540, and X590 Multi-Terrain Tractors, giving operators plenty of options for their choice of machine.
