Get something for everyone on your list this year with our landscaping holiday gift guide. Whether you’re looking for the machines and attachments you need for your business, a little something for your crew or presents for the family, read on for our top holiday gifts for landscapers.

For Your Landscaping Business

The holidays are the perfect time to get the landscaping attachments and machines that will help your business thrive for the months ahead.


If your business offers holiday decoration and light setup, a side-by-side UTV can come in handy. Two-seater or five-seater models allow you to transport you and your crew around neighborhoods, and feature roomy rear beds designed for carrying loads up to 1,000 pounds. Cat® side-by-side UTVs also have towing capacities of up to 2,000 pounds, which makes hauling holiday lights and decorations much easier.


Multi-Purpose Buckets

A skid steer loader multi-purpose bucket provides you with much needed versatility when working on landscaping job sites. Whether you dig, doze or move objects like tree stumps or debris, a multi-purpose skid steer bucket can do it all.

Brushcutters and Mulchers

If your business is involved in creating parks or recreational areas, brushcutters and skid steer mulchers make great landscaping attachments for clearing overgrowth and for vegetation management.

Mini Excavator

No job is too big or small for a mini excavator. Whether you’re digging ponds or planting trees, you can seamlessly transition on the job site with a variety of attachments. The spacious cab is equipped with an intuitive joystick to make operating a breeze.

Power Box Rakes

A 3-point power box rake is another versatile tool for skid steer and compact track loaders, allowing you to do everything from removing old lawns to preparing seed beds, and in turn keeping you efficient on the job.

To move fertilizer and seed bags on landscaping sites, forks are a good investment – they’ll do the heavy lifting for you.

Cat Forks Cat Forks


When installing fences or planting trees, you’ll want an auger to get the job done. Cat augers have 3 different drive systems designed to work with multiple soil types.
