Snow will be here soon enough in my area and I’m looking to add a broom to the front of my 1025R. There’s a guy a few hours away I’ve dealt with before selling a John Deere 60” quick hitch HD broom, it’s practically new and is asking 2300$ CDN for it. I was near my local John Deere dealer and they’re asking $4300 for the same broom new. That said the used broom is the obvious option.
My dealer then said he sees lots of guys coming in for parts and service because they’ve busted or broken something on their JD brooms. His solution is that he has a local manufacturer conterra industries who makes skid steer attachments design and “over build” a broom and hasn’t had a problem with them. My problem is that they’re nearly $5000.
So with that. Has anyone had any issues with John Deere’s 60” broom? For 2300$ I could buy a whole lot of spare parts. As I do use it commercially for snow removal downtime is a killer! Input is much appreciated
