For now, though, we’ll just give you six.

It’s officially hunting season, which means it’s time to gear up those Gators! You may not be able to drive your pickup truck all the way back into the deer woods, but Gators are just compact enough to maneuver around all the trees and other obstacles. Plus, their off-roading capabilities make it easy to drive through ditches and over fallen branches. So you can drive your Gator right up to the deer stand with all your gear in tow. With a payload capacity of up to 1500 pounds, you can head back out of the woods with a lot more than you came in with, too. If you want to be a little more discreet, you can even customize your Gator with camo.


Maybe you would prefer to head out to the river with your fly rods, or down to the lake with a bucket of worms. Gators are perfect for getting you to and from your fishing hole — especially that top-secret spot you found. If it’s hidden, chances are it’s not accessible enough to drive right up to in your car, but the path might also be a little long or challenging to walk to. Especially while trying to hold onto all of your gear! With a Gator, you can get to your spot in the darkness of the morning (thanks to the LED lights!) with all of your rods, reels, tackle, snacks, extra layers, electronics, and your dog. Plus, if you’re lucky, you can bring back dinner.


Of course, you don’t have to be hunting or fishing to haul stuff in your Gator. Some of our Gators have up to a 1500-lb payload capacity! Just imagine all the things you could haul… fallen trees to make a fort for the kids, building supplies for a hidden treehouse, mulch and plants for a secret garden, cases of water for your flag football team, bags of gravel for the new walkway…we could go on. Our John Deere Gators are capable of hauling just about anything you could think of. With large cargo beds and plenty of power, it’ll hardly feel like a challenge.


Sometimes all you want out of your John Deere Gator is a little bit of fun. Whether you’re 17 or 70, there’s something exciting about playing outside, breathing in the fresh air and maybe even getting a little dirty. Take your Gator out mudding after a good rain, or challenge your buddies to a high-speed race. Have you ever set up a Gator obstacle course in the middle of a field or forest? Don’t knock it until you try it! Oh, and don’t worry. Even if you would prefer to keep your clothes clean and your hair pristine, you can embark on the same adventures in the comfort of an enclosed cab. There really is an option for everyone.


As much as we wish it was sometimes, life isn’t all about having fun. When there is work to be done, someone has to do it! You guessed it… your Gator can help you out with that, too. You already know about how powerful it is and how much it can haul, but its capabilities don’t end there. Add an attachment to your Gator, and you can make it do just about anything you want. These utility vehicles are incredibly versatile, and they offer a lot of different attachment options. Attachments include everything from winches to light kits to snow plows to cell phone holders. You can turn your Gator into an office-on-the-go, a makeshift tow truck, or a heavy-duty laborer.  Your options are limitless…and we’ll let you in on a little secret. Even getting work done is fun in a Gator!


John Deere Gators can help people in a lot of ways, but right now we have a special opportunity for you. Greenway Equipment is partnering with The Arkansas Foodbank, Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas, and the Southeast Missouri Food Bank to raise proceeds for their Backpack for Kids programs. To help support the efforts of these food banks, Greenway donated a very special Gator for their fundraiser — and it could be yours. During the Backpack for Kids fundraiser, you have the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life by registering to win Jason Aldean’s autographed John Deere Gator. Country music fans, take note! This is not a drill. For $150 each, these programs provide a backpack of food every weekend to one child for an entire school year. With a donation of $150, you can change a child’s life for an entire school year and increase your chances of winning Jason’s personal XUV835M Gator. A donation of $10 is requested for registration, and your chances of winning Jason’s Gator go up with each additional donation. Sounds like a win-win, right? We hope you will join us in supporting our local food banks so that they may provide food to local children in need, and we can’t wait to see who will win the famous Gator!
