    I have a John Deere Gator 6X4 and was wondering where to find some aftermaket accessories, I will be using it primarly for lawncare (No Hunting), I looked on Ebay and saw one guy that fabricates his own items for Gators, I would like a few just for comparison, any help would be appr. Thanks in advance.

    BTW how many of you guys use Gators, Mules, Polaris Rangers or anything like this with a dump bed in your business. Do they work well for you, I just bought this Gator and wanted to give it a try, I really like it for now it might be that its just a new toy. It is a Trail Gator 6X4 Desiel electric dump bed.

    I have a 6x4 diesel Gator. Most of the accessories I've purchased from the dealer. I have bought a few items for the Gator on eBay .There is however another fellow besides Hunterworkscom that sells Gator parts. I'll have to due a search to find his name. I have about a dozen add-on items to the Gator. One of the better options is the power dump bed. Great for mulch jobs. I'll get back to you.

    I just bought a Kawasaki Mule. Primarily for around my own house but if the need arises to take it on a lawn job(mulch,cleanup) I'll use it. Another toy, but don't tell my wife, I convinced her this is something I really needed.

    Bob, what kinda stuff do you have on your Gator, Hunterworkscom is the only guy I seen on Ebay selling stuff for the gator, I bought a 3000lb winch from Ebay yesterday to put on the gator it is prob. a overkill but I was thinking if I ever pull up any shrubs etc. it would be handy, I am like lazer 46 I convinced the wife I needed it for lawncare.

    I have a 4x2 Gator. Great for spraying roundup along fence rows for some of our industrial props. Also use it with a 50 gal LESCO sprayer on some lawn apps. Use it to haul bagged mulch and debris on spruce ups.

    I almost forgot, the other guy on eBay that was selling Gator parts is "Firechicken2". But he not selling them anymore. He's selling water treatment products. Maybe email him to see if he has any more Gator parts.
