    3038E Compact Tractor


    Does a “basic” compact utility tractor really have to come at the expense of performance or capability? Not when it’s a John Deere. Handle basic chores without compromise with the budget-friendly 3E Series tractors.

    With up to 38 engine horsepower, standard high-capacity hydraulics, four wheel drive, hydrostatic transmission, TwinTouch™ pedal controls, and a versatile category 1 3-point hitch, the refined 3E Series is one surprisingly capable compact. Model Year 2015 machines now feature a horizontal exhaust for better visibility and a new folding ROPs which makes it easier to get under low-clearance shed and garage doors. Test drive a 3E Series at your John Deere dealership soon.

    Capable without compromise. That’s how we run.
