John Deere launches heavy-duty compact utility tractors


Designed with the operator in mind, the new John Deere 3D Series compact utility tractors, including the 3025D, 3035D and 3043D models, offer a powerful, affordable and easy to use solution for a wide range of jobs. Equipped with a gear-drive transmission and available in three horsepower offerings, the 3D Series tractors are designed to tackle everything from pulling and hauling to cutting and tilling.

The 3D series features three horsepower levels: 25HP, 35HP, and 43HP, a weight of 2,778 pounds and a hauling capacity of 4,000 pounds.

One of the most notable features on the 3D Series is the gear-driven transmission, with two ranges and four speeds each, offering a total of eight in forward and reverse. The location of the fender-mounted gear shift lever provides superior comfort and enhanced control by avoiding the awkward movement of shifting gears between the knees. The drivetrain and heavy-duty components such as a large spiral bevel gear provide maximum durability and increase torque and power to the ground.

A long wheelbase and wide stance increases machine stability and provides a smooth ride, even over the toughest of terrains. The 3D was designed to offer smooth and effortless steering, boasting a tight turning radius and hydrostatic steering system which allows for consistent maneuverability with minimal effort required by the operator.

Featuring an easy-to-reach rear-mounted fuel tank, the 3D Series holds up to 10 gallons (37.85 L), giving users the ability to operate a full eight-hour day without refueling. By locating the fuel tank at the machine’s rear, the operator can easily fill the machine and avoid spilling diesel over the hood of their tractor. 

The 3D models are compatible with the all-new John Deere Quik-Knect System. Utilizing one connector for the tractor PTO shaft and another for the implement, Quick-Knect prevents twisting or forcing to line-up the splines when attaching rear implements. Operators now simply slide the tractor and implement connectors together until they click into place.

Additionally, the 3D units deliver strong drawbar performance and boast a three-point hitch that can lift nearly 1,600 pounds. Rear-mounted implements are easy to align and attach with optional telescope draft, saving time and effort.
