John Deere’s 3D Series compact utility tractors are designed to tackle everything from pulling and hauling to cutting and tilling.
Deere rolled out the new 3D Series, which features 25HP, 35HP and 43HP tractors, last month at the National Farm Machinery Show at Louisville, Kentucky.
“The 3D Series offers producers a powerful, affordable and easy-to-use solution for a wide range of jobs,” says John Deere product marketing manager DeMark Cole. “Whether they own large acreage and want a simple, reliable machine for a variety of jobs, or grow crops, like fruits and nuts, and need a durable support tractor, the 3D Series provides a great solution.”
In this video, Cole notes that one of the key 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. A rugged drivetrain and heavy-duty components, including a large spiral bevel gear, provide maximum durability and increase torque and power to the ground. (Story continues after the video.)
The 3D Series boasts a long wheelbase and wide stance, which increases machine stability and provides a smooth ride, even over the toughest of terrains. Cole adds that the compact tractor also delivers strong drawbar performance thanks to 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.
