John Deere Offers Three Models of Snow Utility V-blade Attachments

November 18, 2016

Three models (BV6, BV8 and BV9) of John Deere snow utility V-blade attachments deliver four hydraulic angling positions—straight for making larger cuts, V-configuration for pushing through hard-pack, scoop (both sides inward) for snow stacking, and 30-degree right or left positioning for moving snow or dirt.

The blades feature an electrohydraulic (EH) valve for independent blade function that operators can control from the cab. A rubber cutting edge is also available for the blade to help prevent damage to decorative surfaces. Trip springs help protect the vehicle from sudden impacts with concealed obstacles and can be locked out for light grading and dirt work. V-Blades are optimized to work with John Deere E Series and 313/315 SSLs, E Series CTLs and K Series compact wheel loaders. They’re also compatible with many competitive models.
