The 52-in. (132-cm) Rotary Broom increases tractor versatility by allowing it to be used for a variety of sweeping jobs. The broom effectively meets the needs of commercial, farm, home, and estate operators with four-season versatility:



The broom can be used to dethatch lawns, and it cleans off tennis courts quickly and effectively. 



The broom effectively performs a wide variety of sweeping jobs, including cleaning sidewalks, parking lots, driveways, construction job sites, and barns. It can also be used for backfilling trenches.



The broom can be used to sweep leaves and windrow pine needles. It sweeps artificial turf and cleans up spectator areas after sporting events.



It effectively moves up to 2 in. (5 cm) of snow, which may eliminate the need for a snow thrower, depending on the operator's geographic area.


The 52-in. (132-cm ) Rotary Broom is compatible with X700 Series and 1023E, 1025R, 1026R, model year 2016 and older 2025R and 2032R, 2305-2720, 2210, 4010, 4110, 4115, and 4100 Tractors.


NOTE: If a compact utility tractor is set up for an AutoConnect™ mid-mount mower, the quick-connect drive shaft and rear lift link must be removed from the tractor before installing the rotary broom.

  • Same hitch is used for blade, broom, snow blower, and snow thrower

NOTE: Garden tractors: The 52 Rotary Broom requires use of the newer BM19782 front quick-hitch for installation on X Series Tractors. Interference will occur if installed using a BM17347 quick-hitch.

NOTE: Compact-utility tractors:


1) 2305, 2025R, 2032R, 2320, 2520, and 2720 Tractors must be equipped with front-attaching support kit for use with the Quik-Tatch front hitch.

2) If the operator plans to use a Quik-Tatch front hitch with an OnRamp™ Mower (2025R, 2032R, 2320, 2520, 2720 only), they will need a front hitch/mid mower combo bracket to retain a tool-free change between the front hitch and the mid-mower deck.

Hydraulic angling

Hydraulic-angling cylinder Hydraulic-angling cylinder

Standard hydraulic angling allows positioning the implement straight ahead or at an angle:

  • Straight ahead and infinite positions left or right
    • The operator can change the angle from the tractor seat for increased productivity.
  • Allows moving material off to the side and out of the way
  • Allows working in a back-and-forth operation (no need to deadhead back to the origin)
  • Minimizes driveline vibration in rotary broom applications, when the broom is angled
    • Power take-off (PTO) shaft U-joints operate smoothly, even when the implement is angled.

Front power take-off (PTO)

Front PTO (appearance varies by tractor model) Front PTO (appearance varies by tractor model)

The front implement is powered by the tractor's 2000-rpm front PTO:

  • Engaged by the tractor's PTO clutch for smooth startups and a long life
  • Easily installed and removed from tractor
    • Can remain on tractor for front blade, rotary broom, and snow blower applications
