Moving snow is a fact of winter life in Minnesota. Options abound, including everything from shovels and snow blowers to buckets and plows. Each offers advantages that merit serious consideration for specific situations.
Plows or front-mounted blades excel at clearing snow fast, particularly light snow that’s not exceedingly deep. When attached to the right vehicle, they make quick work of clearing large areas such as long sidewalks, driveways, and parking areas.
Trucks and 4X4 ATVs are common choices for plowing snow, but they’re not the only options. Many John Deere Gator Crossover Utility Vehicles (XUVs) can be outfitted with a front blade for fast, efficient snow removal. For example, the Gator mid-size XUV Series can easily be fitted with a 66-inch standard straight blade. The quick-attaching blade features replaceable cutting edges, skid shoes, power lift, and three-position angling.
Built to play hard and work tough, Gators feature powerful engines, rugged frames, and other heavy-duty amenities that make them perfect plow pushers all winter long. Plus, they offer a variety of additional benefits. Gator XUVs can easily maneuver in tight spots that are difficult to plow with a full-size pickup. Gators also offer more muscle than ATVs. And John Deere’s wide selection of hard-working XUVs offers a variety of cabs and climate control systems guaranteed to keep you warm and dry while putting snow in its place.
