What are some examples of equipment implements and attachments that are available for customization?

What type of equipment you are building online depends on what kind of implements and attachments you have available to choose from when customizing.


Compact Utility Tractors

When customizing a John Deere compact utility tractor, you will start by selecting which series of compact tractor you want and the model. John Deere offers compact utility tractors in 1-4 Series. From there, you will choose from various features available based on the model you select. Examples include:

  • Cab or open station. (if a cab is available for the model you choose)
  • Mid-PTO and rear SCVs.
  • Air ride seats.
  • Lighting options.
  • Attachments. (ex: mower deck, loader, backhoe, box blade, rotary cutter)


Commercial Mowers

One of the most common things to customize on a commercial mower is the size of the mower deck. Still, there are a variety of other options and attachments available that could benefit you and your property. Some of these include:

  • Striping kits.
  • Michelin X Tweel Tires.
  • Mulching kit.
  • Mulch-On-Demand.
