  1. John Deere Gator fertilizer spreader vs salt spreader

    Gators, UTVs, ATVs & Other Recreational Vehicles
    I see that JD makes 2 variations of spreaders for the Gators, one listed as a Fertilizer spreader and one a salt spreader. What really is the difference? I am wanting one unit to do both. Does one just have parts that are more tolerant of the salt corrosion?

    Gators, UTVs, ATVs & Other Recreational Vehicles
    I just purchased a 835R Gator to add a snow blade for snow removal. I have been considering a BOSS blade from one dealer, but another is recommending the blade from JD. I am trying to get some feedback as to the pros/cons of each. I have read good comments on both. They both are hydro...

    Gators, UTVs, ATVs & Other Recreational Vehicles
    I have an 835R that I purchased approximately a year ago and I am having a problem where if I don't use it for a few days, the brake pads rust to the rotors very quickly.

  7. Gator TE Electric Snowplow?

    Gators, UTVs, ATVs & Other Recreational Vehicles
    Hello, I am considering purchasing a John Deere Gator TE Electric. I understand that Deere doesn't support adding a snowplow to the TE Electric, but I'm not sure why.
