What Are The Best Gator Accessories?

Top John Deere Gator Accessories

The John Deere Gator and Utility Vehicle, also called a UTV, are both great pieces of equipment on their own. With the addition of some attachments, however, the Gator’s uses can be taken to a whole new level. These attachments include blades, cargo box storage, cab additions, high-performance items, carts/hitches, lights/signals, protection, and sprayers/washers. Here are some of the best John Deere Gator attachments that you can add to your equipment.


The most commonly used blade can provide up to 1,000 lb. of down pressure while having the ability to angle itself 25 degrees from side to side. The standard V-shape blade, on the other hand, easily converts from V-position to an inverted scoop or straight blade. These blades are designed for more simplified snow and dirt removal.

Additions to the Cab

John Deere’s Poly Cab option includes a lightweight design that maximizes the vehicle’s power-to-weight ratio. This lightweight design allows the vehicle to be more resistant, durable, and stylish. Cabs also come in a deluxe option which is made of metal and provides protection from rain, snow, wind, and other harsh weather conditions. If you’re working in colder temperatures, a cab heather can be attached to your John Deere Gator.

Sprayers & Pressure Washers

John Deere offers a variety of sprayers and pressure washers that can be attached to your gator. This includes a 25-gallon portable sprayer, the 90-gallon high-perf sprayer, the 270 cc pressure washer, and more.


Gators can attach carts or hitches that are great for carrying heavy loads across far distances.

Cargo Box Storage

This storage unit can be positioned at the front or back of the cargo box bed. There is also a divider that enables the operator to separate the bed into multiple compartments.

Winch Multi-Mount Kit

This mount kit helps to provide additional versatility to the vehicle. This helps farmers specifically to install a winch to add more pulling power to the vehicle.

Light Kits

Light kits are ideal for tasks at night and are especially useful for working across properties and job sites.

Heavy-Duty Brush Guards and Bumpers

In terms of protection for the vehicle’s front grill, lights, and hood, a heavy-duty brush guard can be helpful. John Deere makes both front brush guards as well as front and rear fender guards. Gators can also be fitted with rear bumpers for additional protection.

Personal Accessories

While there are many accessories that improve functionality and performance of your John Deere Gator, there are also other accessories that can enhance the user experience. These include attaching a cell phone holder, stereo mount kit, roof, windshield, floor mats, seat belt comfort straps, and light kits.


John Deere offers a wide variety of accessories for gators, so ease of installation is highly dependent on the type of accessory. For example, accessories such as cab enclosures or winches, may require more technical expertise and additional installation time. On the other hand, smaller accessories such as a cell phone holder, stereo mount kit, floor mats, seat belt comfort straps, and light kits can be easily installed by the user.


There are a variety of accessories available for John Deere gators. Some of the most popular accessories include cap attachments, light kits, carts, hitches, brush guards, and sprayers.
