John Deere Subcompact 1 SeriesJohn Deere unveiled a new line of subcompact tractors at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville this week – the 1 Series Subcompact Utility tractors. John Deere Product Manager Kevin Branstetter gave the media a sneak preview, which you can see in the video posted below.

Kevin says there are two models, the 1023E and 1026R, which are customer designed and will accept a full range of implements. One of those is a mid mount mower deck that allows the operator to drive over it and auto connect! Also important is an auxiliary power outlet so you can keep your mobile phone charged while you’re mowing or working. They’ll be available in John Deere dealers soon.
