New snow blowers for John Deere lawn tractors

Published:  10 October, 2013

John Deere has introduced two new snow blower attachments for its X300 and X500 Select Series lawn tractors, in time for this year's winter season.

Durable and easy to install, these 112 and 119cm (44 and 47in) snow blowers increase the versatility of Select Series lawn tractors for year-round use. Both domestic and professional users will find them simple to use and highly efficient at clearing snow from pathways, building frontages and yards.

The two-stage design allows these snow blowers to perform consistently in various operating conditions. Protected by a heavy-duty steel housing, a low-speed 305 or 406mm (12 or 16in) diameter auger gathers the snow. A high-speed rotor then discharges it at a constant velocity, even in light snow conditions, through a rotatable chute. Constructed from high molecular weight plastic, the rotor is sturdy and resistant to rust.

Attachment to the front of the tractor and removal are made simple with a quick-hitch mounting system, with the snow blower locking onto the hitch. Designed and built by John Deere, these new snow blowers are making their European debut after many years of proven performance in the US, and are available now from the UK & Ireland John Deere dealer network.
