Deere to phase out residential walk-behinds

Equipment

Walk-behind snowblowers and lawnmowers will continue to be serviced by John Deere dealerships.

| September 23, 2011

John Deere residential walk-behind equipment will continue to be serviced by dealerships even though the company will no longer sell John Deere walk-behind snowblowers or lawnmowers after 2012.

“We will continue to stand behind all the products purchased at John Deere dealerships,” says Maureen McCormack, segment manager, media relations. “There should be no concerns along those lines.”

In 2012, dealers will move through their existing remaining inventory of walk-behind mowers, blowers, tillers and generators, after which they will start integrating Honda Power Equipment inventory.

“Walk-behind products like snow blowers and tillers, those have never been core products of John Deere,” says McCormack. “With this agreement with Honda, it allows us to continue focusing on our quality ride-on products. John Deere is pleased about this agreement with Honda.”
