OverallThe 2015 John Deere 3032E and 3038E compact utility tractors feature some new customer-driven updates for added convenience, comfort and ease of use.

The 3032E and 3038E are equipped with powerful, emissions-compliant Final Tier 4 engines with 31.1 (22.3 kW) and 37.3 (27.4 kW) horsepower, respectively. A hydrostatic transmission with Twin Touch™ pedals provides operators with simple, comfortable-to-use controls to find the right speed for the job at hand. It’s as easy as pressing a single foot pedal to go forward and another foot pedal to go in reverse. Automotive-style cruise control is optional. Intuitive controls are color-coded (orange for throttle and shifting; black for hydraulics; yellow for power take-off (PTO)) for easy operation.

Both models feature a flat, uncluttered, open station operator platform. A new, higher back seat provides added comfort for long days of work. A foldable, certified rollover protection structure (ROPS) is designed to provide easier storage. Without tools, the operator can manually fold the safety device down for easy parking in a garage or shed. The exhaust system was moved from the top of the tractors and now runs parallel to the ground for improved visibility and a cleaner look.

Four wheel drive comes standard on both the 3032E and 3038E, which are part of the emerging E Series Tractor lineup designed especially for rural property owners, equine and small-scale livestock operations looking for a machine designed to handle a variety of tasks.
