Which Lawn Mower Attachments Make Yard Work Easier?
Don’t make the mistake of thinking lawn mowers or lawn tractors are just for mowing! The top brands offered at Koenig Equipment, such as John Deere, Ventrac, and Ferris, provide a full lineup of attachments for lawn mowers and lawn tractors to help you accomplish so much more. Attachments allow you to tackle multiple yardwork duties, including bagging lawn clippings, blowing debris, hauling materials, spraying, and the list keeps going.
Learn more about available lawn equipment attachments below, and contact the team at Koenig Equipment to get additional information.
When you want a completely clean yard without even grass clippings after mowing, a bagger attachment is a must. A bagger attachment hooks up to the mower deck discharge and collects everything that would normally be shot out from under the mower deck. This includes grass clippings, leaves, and other debris you might mow over.
Baggers can also be paired with a blower attachment to work together and function more like a vacuum for the excess debris around your lawn.
If you prefer to not have grass clippings, leaves, or debris on your sidewalk or lawn, a blower attachment is a great option for you. Not only does a blower help to clear away grass clippings, leaves, and debris, but it can also be useful when you are wanting to clear and prep a section for your garden. Keep in mind that a blower attachment is not going to collect anything like a bagger does, it simply blows it from the area it is currently in.
Landscaping and gardening projects can become very labor-intensive when it comes to moving your materials. The simple addition of a utility cart to your lawn mower or lawn tractor can save your back from carrying heavy items across your lawn to the project location. These utility carts work great when it comes to picking up yard toys or needing a spot for water balloons at a kids’ party.
Pesky weeds are a thing of the past with the addition of a sprayer attachment for your lawn mower or tractor. A sprayer attachment allows you to control weeds across your lawn with the easy application of broadcast spray. If you have random spots that you want to be able to spot treat, there are some sprayer attachments that come with a wand as well. With the wand, you can spot-treat weeds on your lawn or around your landscaping.

Below is a guided list of the Top 15 John Deere Mower Attachments to hopefully help you feel more confident in your search for the perfect attachment and be better able to care for your tractor. Click images for product links.
John Deere Bagger – Part No. BUC10284 First up is the John Deere Rear Bagging System, which is arguably the most-purchased attachment on this list for a riding mower. The bagger shown here will fit 100 and 200 series mowers with a cargo mount system.
This bagger attachment has a new design for 2021 including upgrades to the latching system that allow the hopper to stay up and the bags to be easily removed. With these upgrades and its usability, this attachment should be high on your must-have list.
John Deere Spreader – Part No. LP39087 Next up is the 130-Pound Capacity Tow-Behind Broadcast Spreader by John Deere. Perfect for fertilizing and seeding your yard or other large areas, this is a great investment for your collection. For those of you living in harsh winter areas, this attachment also allows you to scatter sand or ice-melt to help prepare a driveway for any storm that comes your way.
John Deere Mower Cover – Part No. LP93917 One useful attachment that often gets overlooked is our John Deere Mower Cover. A cover may not be necessary if you store your mower inside, but it’s essential for outdoor storage. Keeping your mower outside exposes it to elements like rain, dust, wind-blown debris, and more. Placing a cover over your machine provides protection and will lengthen its life and functionality.
The cover shown above will fit 100-300 series mowers.
John Deere 42” Mulch Kit – Part No. BM21816
Used on the 42” Decks found on most 100 and some 200 series mowers, the next attachment on our list is the John Deere Hard-Mount Mulch Kit. These kits are very easy to install by sliding underneath the deck and using just one bolt to mount. There are many different varieties available depending on your machine and what deck size you have.
John Deere Mulch Plug 42” – Part No. GY00115
Next on the list is a John Deere Mulching Cover. This is another easy-to-install attachment that goes on the edge of your mower deck and comes in both 42” and 48” deck models.
Allowing for quick and simple adjustments from side discharge to mulch, this attachment is a great tool to help you mulch grass, leaves, smalls sticks, and more.
John Deere Mounted Sprayer – Part No. LP53283
We’ve also included our Rear-Mounted John Deere Sprayer, which comes with both a hand wand and a boom option. This sprayer does fit several different models, but it’s particularly ideal for 100 and 200 series mowers.
John Deere Tow Behind Sprayer – Part No. LP19478
Another great option for residential spraying is the Tow-Behind John Deere Sprayer. Equipped with a hand wand and a two-nozzle boom in the back, the valves of this sprayer will allow you to switch between the two simultaneously with ease.
John Deere Trickle Charger – Part No. TY263
This John Deere Trickle Charger is another attachment often overlooked, but if you find yourself only using your mower periodically, it might just prove to be the most valuable in your collection.
The model shown here is a Mount-On Trickle Charger that allows for mounting underneath the mower battery. You can also leave the charger on your machine at all times, keeping it plugged in to ensure proper battery maintenance throughout the winter months when not in use. Many trickle chargers have different connections allowing transference from one machine to another such as a boat, ATV, or another mower.
Check out one our old posts here to learn how to use your John Deere Trickle Charger.
John Deere Poly Cart – Part No. LP21935
The John Deere Poly Cart is a very versatile attachment and was an easy addition to this list. A standard cart with a dunk feature, the Poly Cart is great for moving things such as dirt, gravel, and firewood, and transporting gardening tools or even other lawn equipment.
John Deere Front Bumper – Part No. BUC11080
Easy to install and requiring no tools for setup, the John Deere Front Bumper attachment comes in at No. 10 on our list. This bumper will protect the front of your tractor when running into objects while mowing or from an inexperienced operator.
Snow Removal Attachments for John Deere Lawn Mowers
The winter months always seem to sneak up on us. We’ve barely put away our lawn furniture and grills, when out of nowhere, it’s time to trade in your lawn mower for a snow blower.
A big advantage of owning a John Deere lawn tractor is it can transform into a powerful and effective snowplow. Lawn tractor owners can add a John Deere snow blower or front blade to their mower to make quick work of removing snow. And there are plenty of attachments — including weather enclosures, seat covers, tire-chain attachments, wheel weights, and more — that add comfort and safety to your winter wonderland experience while enhancing your tractor’s snow removal performance.
A Quick and Easy Run-Down of the Advantages of Owning a Lawn Mower/Snow Blower Combo:
With a traditional walk-behind snow blower, removing snow from your driveway can be taxing, especially when the temperature plummets. Using a snow blower attachment on your lawn mower allows you to spend less time in the cold — enabling you to simply sit down and steer the machine instead of pushing a snow blower up and down the driveway.
Lawn mower/snow blower combos also remove more snow than standard snow blowers. By using the tractor’s more powerful motor, the snow blower won’t bog down as easily, allowing it to handle heavier and deeper snow. Some models can even handle more than 20 inches of snow at a time. And, they’re considered by most, to be easier to use than traditional snow blowers.
John Deere Attachments
Whether you’re operating a 100 Series or an X700 Series there are attachments suited for your mower. Matching the right size blade and blower to your model is important for performance. Attachment size is related to the horsepower, weight, and frame size of your tractor. A few examples are:
John Deere 44-inch, 2-Stage Snow Blower for 100 Series Tractor
John Deere’s 44-inch snow blower for the 100 Series lawn tractor works well in all snow conditions, but it’s ideal for homeowners in heavy-snow regions. This model is more effective than single-stage snow throwers when operating in wet, heavy snow. It provides consistent snow placement in all snow conditions because of the tractor’s high speed. The low-speed auger picks up snow and moves it toward the center of the machine, where the high-speed rotor blows it up to 50 feet out of the chute.
Faster rotor speed provides a maximum throwing distance up to 50 feet, plus the high-speed rotor provides consistent snow placement even in variable snow conditions. John Deere has streamlined the installation and removal process for reduced initial set-up time. There are both single-stage vs dual-stage blowers, with both belt-driven and shaft-driven power.
John Deere 54-inch Front Blade for X700 Series Tractor
John Deere also offers a 54-in. front blade for the X700 Series lawn tractor. This front blade is excellent for pushing away light snow or other loose material and is constructed for good performance and long life. The blade surface is curved to roll the material, rather than push, which requires less power and increases blade capacity. A bolt-on, replaceable cutting edge takes most of the wear to greatly extend the life of the blade. The blade also comes standard with equipment for controlling it right from the tractor’s seat, and the blade can be angled left, right, or used in the straight-ahead position.
Most lawn tractor manufacturers have snowplow or snow blower attachments available. There are universal plow and blower attachments available for purchase as well, with many that cost as much as a lower-priced walk-behind snow blower. Converting your lawn tractor to a snow removal machine is easy. While there’s a bit more to the job than hooking up an attachment, preparation and access to your owner’s manual ensures you’ll be clearing your driveway in no time.
How to Turn Your Tractor into a Snow Blower?
Remove the Deck
You’ll need to remove the deck to make room for your bracket and attachment (and to give you extra ground clearance). Make sure to store your deck inside and away from the weather to prevent unnecessary wear and tear.
Put Chains on the Back Tires
Most lawn tractors are not heavy enough to handle a serious snow removal job—without some help, that is. So put chains on the back wheels, especially for non-4WD tractors, to give yourself the extra traction you’ll need. This is particularly critical if the area you’re plowing is steep, narrow, or includes sharp turns.
Mount Bracket and Plow or Blower Attachment
Plow blades or blower attachments generally come with a bracket that attaches to your tractor first. Only once the bracket is in place is the attachment installed. Some brackets can remain on the tractor, allowing you to add or remove the attachment without tools, which is a serious time saver.
Attach Rear Weights
Some extra weight in the back of your tractor can help to keep you from slipping on icy or snowy terrain. You can add weight by attaching a weight bracket to the back of your tractor and adding weights to it or add wheel weights directly to the rear tires.
In general, plow blades can get closer to the ground, and therefore remove more snow, than blowers. So, when making your decision on the type of attachment you want, consider what kind of snowfall you get and whether you have a problem with thawing and refreezing. If you find that you spend a lot of time in your new tractor-turned-snow remover, you can purchase a snow cab to keep yourself safely out of bitter wind and weather while you work.
Come spring, your tractor can be converted right back to its lawn-cutting duties.
Some models include one-handed or electric lift systems that allow you to raise and lower the machine while still seated. You’ll like the ability to adjust the angle of the discharge chute from the seat of the tractor.
Some models can be paired with adjustable skid shoes and replaceable wear plates that allow the snow blower to ride along the ground without damaging the unit itself.
Whatever you decide, know that John Deere has the right combination for your needs so you can spend less time-fighting Old Man Winter and more time enjoying the wonders of the season.
