How Do You Use a Snow Plow With Your John Deere Tractor?


John Deere offers several snow removal attachments that turn the company's tractors into snow removal equipment. These attachments include front blades, snow blowers and rotary brooms.

John Deer has designed the 366 front blade to work with three models of its compact utility tractors, the 3039R, the 3046R and the 3033R. The 366 front blade has a 66-inch cutting blade and is easily attached with the company's front 3-Point Hitch with A-frame adapter. Deere's 380A front blade is compatible with its 790 compact utility tractor. This blade, constructed with 1/4-inch steel, comes in widths of 54, 60 and 66 inches. The 54-inch blade has a replaceable cutting edge that extends the life of the blade.

John Deere also manufactures two 60-inch rotary brooms for snow removal, one for heavy duty uses. Both brooms utilize hydraulic angling and can be used to sweep leaves and other debris along with snow. John Deere snow blowers all utilize hydraulic chute angling but differ in widths from 47 inches to 59 inches. The blower with a width of 47 inches rotates 180 degrees while the 54 inch and 59 inch wide versions rotate 200 degrees.

Businesses and consumers can purchase these snow removal attachments at any authorized John Deere dealer. The manufacturer's website has a dealer locator for finding dealers by ZIP code. The information for each dealer includes the product lines the dealer sells including snow equipment.
