"Cargo Gard" Fits Deere Garden Tractors
Al Zimmerman's newest Deere garden tractor attachment, the Cargo Gard ($139), serves three useful purposes. It protects the front of the tractor. The bracket can hold suitcase weights. And, when lowered, it can carry a toolbox, cooler or other items up to 40 lbs.
  "I try to come out with something new every year," says the Brownton, Minn., manufacturer who also collects Deere garden tractors.
  "A group of John Deere collectors (www.weekendfreedommachines.com) really gave me my start," Zimmerman says.
  While most customers own Deere tractors, his attachments can also be made for other models if he has the measurements.
  He builds heavy-duty attachments made of the best steel. "The Loadlifter ($239) is my best seller," Zimmerman says.
  It has 24-in. long forks rated to 300 lbs. that are handy to move pallets. He suggests that customers store seldom-used items such as snow blowers on pallets and move them around with the Loadlifter.
  Another popular item, the Hydraulic Angle Kit ($259), comes with brackets, a cylinder and hoses to transform a single action blade into a four-way hydraulic angling blade operated from the seat of the tractor.
  All his attachments are easy to take on and off with quick-tach, bolts or 2-in. receiver hitches. Check out his website for videos of some of them in action.
