John Deere Expands Compact Utility Tractor Family

Kelly Marshall

John Deere knows every farm and every budget is different.  That’s why they’ve expanded their 3E and 2R Series Compact Utility Tractor lineup.

JD 3E The 3025E features an easy-to-use, two-range hydrostatic transmission and Twin Touch foot controls for an automatic-like experience.  This 25 horsepower options also provides color-coded controls that are ergonomic and intuitive and comes with a comfortable, contoured seat.  An optional iMatch Quick-Hitch makes rear implement hookups simple; this workhorse can be used with implements ranging from box blades to rotary cutters.

“Our 3E Series compact tractors have a reputation for being reliable machines that customers can trust to power through the toughest of jobs,” said Michelle Bentley, product marketing manager. “With the new 3025E, John Deere has combined capability and comfort at an affordable price, meeting a diverse range of needs for our hardworking customers.”

“The 3025E will surprise customers, who would, for the lower price, expect to find nothing more than a basic, ‘bare-bones’ tractor,” Bentley continues. “Instead, they discover the nicely equipped, hardworking machine that goes beyond, providing reliable performance at an affordable price”

Two large-model chassis, the 2032R and 2038 R have also been redesigned.  They offer 38 horsepower, in addition to a wider stance and longer wheelbase for improved stability.  You’ll still find a premium suspension seat and ergonomic controls, plus a tilt steering wheel, cruise control and thick rubber floor mat to reduce operator fatigue.  These models come standard with work lights on the fender and have an option for an LED work light kit.

“Our customers are looking for efficient, durable and easy-to-use solutions that allow them to do more work in less time with less effort,” said Jared Lowe, John Deere product marketing manager for compact utility tractors. “When designing the new 2R Series models, we focused on improving machine stability, comfort and implement attachability to deliver on those needs.”

JD 2R The easy to use features also make the 2R Series stand out.  The CommandCut lift system gives quick and accurate cutting hight at the bump of a lever and the turn of a dial.  Twin Touch foot controls, eThrottle and cruise control assist the operator while driving.  Implements can be installed in front, mid and rear and combined in seven different ways.

Our AgWired team got to see these new models at the Farm Progress Show last week.  Check out our Flickr album to see more.
