Residential Property Tips
Lawn care maintenance is about more than mowing when the grass needs to be cut. Fortunately, riding lawn mowers can do so much more than mow. They are a powerful tool that can be used to help complete a variety of lawn care projects. The key to maximizing their productivity is to find the right attachments. Once connected to your riding mower, that’s when the fun begins.
If you’re not sure where to start, we can point you in the right direction.
Top 5 John Deere Lawn Mower Attachments
John Deere takes great pride in the quality of their equipment, and that commitment to excellence extends to their attachments, as well. Here are five of the most popular attachments that can help take your John Deere riding lawn mower to a new level of productivity.
Rear Bagging Attachment
One of the most popular attachments for John Deere riding lawn mowers, specifically 100 Series Tractors, is the Rear Twin-Bagger Collection System (Model #BUC10284). Recently redesigned for 2021, the bagging system is simple to set up, easy to remove and compact for convenient storage. The two easy-to-empty bags offer capacity of up to 6.5 bushels. But the primary appeal is the efficient lower chute that provides smooth airflow, reducing the chance of plugging.
Tow-Behind Poly Utility Cart
John Deere’s 7 cu.-ft Tow-Behind Poly Utility Cart Dump Trailer with Universal Hitch (Model #LP21935) is a premium-molded heavy-duty utility cart that can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether you need to haul gravel, load up firewood or transport other lawn equipment, this cart has the durability and versatility to get it done. Not only is it a standard cart, but the dump feature with a 54-degree dumping angle makes emptying materials simple and easy.
One of the most essential additions you can make to your riding lawn mower is the John Deere Broadcast Spreader (Model #LP39087). Perfect for spreading fertilizer or seed over a yard, this spreader can also be used to put down sand or ice melt on long driveways for homeowners who live in areas of the country that experience winter weather. Most importantly, John Deere’s spreader is designed for ease of operation and to ensure even spread.
Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper
If you like to bag up your clippings, need to pick up trash and debris out of your yard or have to collect leaves in the fall, you’d be hard pressed to find a better alternative for John Deere’s 42-in. 24 cu.-ft. Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper (Model #STS-42JDC). Not only is it suitable for most John Deere lawn tractors, but the powerful six-brush design ensures a clean sweep the first time through. The high capacity also means you’ll have to do less frequent unloading.
A front bumper may not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering what attachments to purchase for your riding lawn mower, but you never can have too much protection. The John Deere Front Bumper (Model #BUC11080) is not only a stylish addition to your riding mower, but it provides increased front-protection for your tractor. It’s easy to install and could be an invaluable attachment for inexperienced operators who might not be able to avoid running into things..
