John Deere has given its 3032E and 3038E compact utility tractors some updates for added convenience, comfort and ease of use.
“The 3E Series is designed to make our customers’ work easier,” says Scott Schadler, John Deere product marketing manager. “Their compact size, dependability, implement capabilities and affordability make the 3E Series a versatile tool for loading, hauling, blading/grading, digging, tilling and mowing.”
The 3032E and 3038E are equipped with emissions-compliant Final Tier 4 engines with 31.1 and 37.3 horsepower, respectively. A hydrostatic transmission with Twin Touch pedals provides operators with simple controls. According to John Deere, 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 an open station operator platform. A new, higher back seat provides added comfort, while 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 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.
Four-wheel drive comes standard on the 3032E and 3038E. The machines can be equipped with the John Deere iMatch Quick-Hitch. Deere says iMatch allows faster hooking and unhooking of hitch-mounted implements, such as box scrapers and rotary tillers. The 3E Series is compatible with a broad range of implements, including mowers, rear blades and posthole diggers. A factory-installed loader option is also available.
The 3032E and 3038E are part of the E Series Tractor lineup, which boasts more than 20 configurations ranging from 22 to 100 horsepower.
“These tractors are easy to operate, easy to maintain, easy to own and easy to buy,” says Schadler. “No matter what the chore, there’s an E Series tractor that delivers John Deere quality and reliability — at a budget-friendly price. In fact, the 1023E sub-compact tractor has a suggested U.S. list price starting at under $12,000.”
