For more than 175 years, our company has been committed to nurturing, harvesting and beautifying the land. Today, we continue that commitment by providing the equipment to sustainably care for America's Front Yard."
The donation includes a wide range of John Deere grounds care equipment including a Z925M Flex Fuel mower, a Terrain Cut 8800 rotary mower, a 1565 front mower, 4720 compact utility tractor with loader, backhoe and other Frontier attachments, and more.
