(Oct. 14, 2016) — This winter, skid steers, compact track loaders or compact wheel loaders are capable of tackling even more projects on the job site with the John Deere Snow Utility V-Blades, the latest additions to the John Deere Worksite Pro™ attachment lineup.

The three new models (BV6, BV8 and BV9) offer increased flexibility, performance and productivity. Delivering four hydraulic angling positions — straight for making larger cuts, V-configuration for pushing through hard-pack, scoop (both sides inward) for easy snow stacking and 30-degree right or left positioning for accurately moving snow or dirt — the John Deere Snow Utility V-Blades offer a variety of standard features to properly and efficiently tackle snow or light-dirt projects on the job site.
The Snow Utility V-Blades feature an electrohydraulic (EH) valve for independent blade function that operators can control from the cab. A rubber cutting edge is also available for the blade to help prevent damage to decorative surfaces. Trip springs help protect the vehicle from sudden impacts with concealed obstacles and can be locked out for light grading and dirt work.
“As many landscapers and contractors can tell you, winter weather doesn’t mean you have to close up shop,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Winter attachments, like the Snow Utility V-Blades, are great additions to make the most of your compact equipment investment year-round and expand your business through diversification.”
Like all Worksite Pro attachments, the V-Blades are optimized to work with John Deere E-Series and 313/315 Skid Steers, E-Series Compact Track Loaders (CTLs) and K-Series Compact Wheel Loaders. They’re also compatible with many competitive models.
With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch™ easy attachment system found on all John Deere skid steers and CTLs, the machine can easily add and remove the snow blade in no time. They’re also compatible with many competitive models. To learn more, visit http://www.JohnDeere.com or contact your local John Deere dealer.
