OLATHE, Kan. – For people looking to purchase lawn, garden and other equipment, fall just got a little greener, thanks to the just-announced John Deere Gear Up For Fall program. The program, which runs from Aug. 15 to the end of October, gives customers who attend Drive Green events an extra $250 off a wide range of turf equipment, in addition to the other Drive Green program product discounts and the sweepstakes.

According to Tom Elliott, product marketing manager for John Deere, customers can get the $250 Gear Up For Fall coupon when they attend a fall Drive Green event and apply it toward the purchase of a new John Deere ZTrak, EZTrak, QuikTrak mower, Signature or Select Series tractor, or select Gator utility vehicle models.

Plus, the Gear Up For Fall incentives, along with the other Drive Green coupons, make this an especially good time to invest in John Deere equipment.”

In addition to the $250 Gear Up For Fall coupon for turf equipment, event attendees can receive a $500 coupon for the purchase of select John Deere utility tractors and discounts on attachments. Attendees also can register for a chance to win a John Deere 3032E compact utility tractor with loader and rotary cutter package to be given away later this year.

“Along with making the Drive Green events fun and informative experiences, the first 50 people who attend fall events at participating dealerships will receive a special limited-edition John Deere Gear Up For Fall camo cap,” Elliott adds.

At Drive Green events this fall, John Deere dealer experts will be on-hand to demonstrate the equipment and answer questions. Admission is free and no preregistration is required to attend.
