Turf Maintenance with Ag-Pro and John Deere

posted on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 in Ag-Pro Companies News

When temperatures begin to drop and you start to feel that familiar chill in the air, that can only mean one thing: fall has arrived.

This season signals different things for different people. For some, it’s the return of schoolbooks and routine. For farmers, it means harvest time is around the corner. For many, fall ushers in the excitement of football season.

Ag-Pro and John Deere are proud to offer products that assist with turf maintenance of all kinds, from the football field and beyond! Keep reading to learn more about the types of John Deere equipment you may see at a football game near you this fall.

Compact Utility Tractors

Field maintenance is key to a successful football experience. Various small tractors are helpful with the upkeep of landscaping surrounding many of our favorite football fields. Below are some of our favorites.

  • 1 Series Sub-Compact Utility Tractors - These tractors are easy to maneuver thanks to their small size. They exhibit the amount of power needed for most turf-related work, while still fitting into a standard sized shed!
  • 2 Series - A higher horsepower range makes these a great fit for a wide variety of field and stadium management tasks. 

For even larger tasks, look to John Deere’s 3 Series or 4 Series line of compact utility tractors.

John Deere ZTrak and Commercial Mowers

A consistently maintained playing surface is key for things like proper drainage and even player safety. For most grounds crews, this is a full time job requiring a frequent mowing schedule.

Depending on the size of the field you’re cheering from, you may even see John Deere commercial walk behind mowers, QuikTrak stand on mowers, or commercial grade John Deere Zero Turn mowers.

Proper equipment is key to achieving a clean, consistent cut every time. Ag-Pro and John Deere can help you find the right mower for your project, whether on the football field or at home.

John Deere Gator Utility Vehicles

Finally, John Deere Gator Utility Vehicles have been known to make an appearance on gameday. 2WD Gators are useful for hauling lighter loads like sport or medical equipment.

4WD Gators can fit even more people safely inside, making them a great fit for errands and maintenance needs alike on game day. Both varieties can sometimes be seen assisting injured players as they exit the field.

The use of attachments make Gators even more versatile. For example, many grounds crews find that a sprayer attachment is well worth the investment for their needs.

Off the field, a generator is handy to keep your tailgate party running smoothly. Ask your local Ag-Pro dealer about John Deere or Honda generators for sale.
