J ohn Deere compact utility tractors can be used across multiple industries, from light commercial and landscaping to municipal and other non-residential environ- ments. The versatility of the compact utility tractors is what makes the machine appealing to contractors. John Deere offers a wide variety of implements designed for a multitude of jobs. A few of the more common implements used on compact utility tractors include a loader, mowing deck and backhoe, allowing John Deere compact utility tractors to quickly transition from material handling to grass mowing to digging tasks. Additional attachments allow Deere tractors to be used for tasks like snow re- moval, landscaping, maintenance and repair. John Deere compact utility tractor imple- ments are designed to easily connect and disconnect. Some implements, such as the AutoConnect mower deck, can be installed and removed simply by driving the front wheels of the tractor over it. Where some larger machines require well-trained operators, John Deere compact util- ity tractors are easy to use for all operators, says the company. The controls are intuitive and non-intimidating. Hydrostatic drives are also a common feature on these units, meaning new operators will find them as easy to drive as cars.
