The 40-in. Tractor Shovel expands the usefulness of any John Deere Select SeriesTM X300 or X500 Multi-Terrain Tractor by allowing it to pick up and move material. It utilizes a high-capacity electric actuator that provides lift, lower, dump, and down force functions. No front blade is required.

The Tractor Shovel takes the back-breaking labor out of jobs like moving mulch, spreading gravel, ground grading, and more. It installs using the tractor's existing frame holes. After initial installation, it can be removed or installed without tools.

The innovative opening design of the tractor shovel, combined with the lift height, assures complete emptying of material. The tractor shovel can also be used for scraping and grading by locking the shovel in the raised position. Compatible with:

  • Select Series X300, X300R, X304, X320, X324, X340, and X360 Tractors
