No matter if you are trying to make work easier or just trying to add some functional styling and performance to your Gator Utility Vehicle, there is sure to be the perfect accessory for your machine. 


Being one of the top Gator dealers in the US, we’ve been able to compile a list of what we consider 5 Must Have Accessories for your Gator Utility Vehicle. We surveyed our customers to find out what accessories they use most and created a list of the top Gator Accessories to make the most of your Gator UTV for both work and play.

1. Canopy Cover / Roofs


Being able to use your Gator Utility Vehicle all year long is what makes the John Deere Gator so valuable to both homeowners and companies.

The majority of Gators come standard with a ROPS unit, which makes having a Canopy Cover and Roof so essential to be able to work comfortably year-round.

John Deere Gator Roofs are available in both soft and hard construction, each providing a different level of protection and comfort for the user.

2. Windshield


Along with a roof and canopy cover, the most popular and highly-rated John Deere Gator Accessory is the Windshield. Depending on your John Deere Gator Utility Vehicle configuration, your Gator might be able to add a soft or hard windshield for the ultimate protection year-round.

John Deere Gator Windshields are built to fit your Gator model and range from the basic soft windshield to the deluxe glass models that feature fitted installation and built-in windshield wipers. Windshields provide a high level of protection from various weather and work environments while also providing an extra level of safety for the operators and passengers.

3. Bed Dump


One of the best features of a Gator Utility Vehicle is their large, heavy-duty cargo beds. With virtually limitless uses, the Gator Bed can be used for hauling, storing and even working.

While the standard John Deere Gator Bed is built with a simple latch release for manual dumping of the bed, the ability to add a hydraulic power dump to the cargo box can make even the most difficult jobs a breeze.

Although not every John Deere Gator Utility Vehicle can add a power dump option to the bed, almost all of the XUV and Heavy Duty models can. If you use your Gator to haul yard waste, mulch, rocks or anything else, having the optional Power Dump can make these tasks quick and easy.

Why would you shovel mulch out of the Gator bed when you can dump it where you need it with just a push of a button? Make your job easier and your cargo management simple with a John Deere Gator Cargo Box Power Lift Kit.
