John Deere Dealers sell and service Western Snow and Ice Removal Products

John Deere has entered an allied distribution agreement with Douglas Dynamics, the parent company of Western plows, to sell and support Western products through the John Deere dealer channel.

Through this agreement, John Deere dealers in the United States and Canada will sell and service Western snow and ice removal products that are compatible with John Deere Gator Utility Vehicles.

Justin VanderHeyden, John Deere product marketing manager, says:

“With more than 70 years of experience in making integrated snow and ice removal products, Douglas Dynamics was the obvious choice for us. Western snow and ice control products are the brand of choice for those who move snow, so we’re excited to provide this new offering for Gator Utility Vehicles.”

This agreement enables one-stop-shopping for utility vehicle customers who also want Western snow and ice removal products.

Michael Frank, manager of business development for Douglas Dynamics, says:

“John Deere’s global brand presence and reputation for manufacturing the highest quality products while providing outstanding service aligns closely with our long-standing brand strength and dedication to quality and service. The partnership brings two premium brands together with the shared goal of providing John Deere dealers and customers with easy access to best in class snow and ice control products for John Deere Gators.”

  • 72-inch (1.82-m) Hydraulic Straight Blade
