The engine uses the latest technologies to optimize fuel economy, improve control and accuracy, and reduce environmental impact. The common rail system (CRS) optimizes fuel economy and reduces operating costs comparted to engines not using CRS technology. High-pressure injection atomizes fuel into finer particles which burn more completely. It results in improved fuel economy and a lower cost of operation.


The electronic control unit (ECU) provides optimum fuel control and accuracy. ECU monitors and controls the engine. It continuously monitors engine conditions and adjusts the fuel delivery accordingly to ensure optimum performance and emissions.


The engine comes with an after-treatment system. The system operates automatically. The exhaust filter consists of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which captures particulate matter (PM) contained in the exhaust gas. Using a natural cleaning process, most of the PM trapped in the exhaust filter is eliminated by the heat of the exhaust stream generated by normal use. In situations of low temperature, engine speed, or load factor, an active cleaning cycle is initiated. In this cleaning cycle, the exhaust gas temperature is raised by injecting additional fuel during the exhaust stroke of normal vehicle operation to the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC).


After many hours of use, the exhaust filter may require an ash removal service.

DPF cleaning

Depending on the load that the tractor is under, as well as ambient temperature, humidity, and engine speed, the DPF may build up with particulate matter, thus requiring cleaning. Filter cleaning is determined by one of three factors:

  • A prescribed time-based estimation of needed filter cleaning
  • DOC/DPF pressure sensors
  • A particulate matter buildup estimation based on load conditions


Once one of the three conditions has been met, filter cleaning will occur.


There are three different types of filter cleaning processes:

  • Passive filter cleaning
  • Active filter cleaning
  • Parked filter cleaning

Passive filter cleaning

Passive filter cleaning occurs naturally when the engine is generating enough heat to oxidize particulate matter. This automatic process occurs continuously during normal operating conditions. No tractor icons or symbols appear on the display during passive filter cleaning.


NOTE:  Passive filter cleaning requires no operator involvement, and there is no interruption to tractor operation.

Active filter cleaning

If conditions (temperature, load, or speed) for passive filter cleaning cannot be achieved, then PM is removed using active filter cleaner.


To achieve the required conditions, exhaust temperature management (ETM) manages the initiation and duration of active filter cleaning. ETM can adjust numerous engine parameters and/or inject a small quantity of fuel into the exhaust stream for a short duration. The fuel turns to vapor and chemically reacts with the catalysts in the DOC to create heat to oxidize the PM.


It is important to note that at no time is the fuel in the DOC/DPF ignited, and there is no flame within the DOC/DPF.


Like passive filter cleaning, active filter cleaning requires no operator involvement, and there is no interruption to tractor operation.

Parked filter cleaning

In some instances where passive and active filter cleaning have not fully cleaned the PM from the system, a parked filter cleaning may need to take place. In general, the only time a parked filter cleaning will need to occur is when automatic filter cleaning has been disabled for an extended period of time and multiple warnings to engage filter cleaning were ignored or if the tractor has been used during light load conditions. Additionally, when the automatic filter cleaning process has been deliberately interrupted multiple times, or if active filter cleaning has failed numerous times due to a failed component, a parked filter cleaning may be requested. In these rare instances the operator will have to park the tractor and start the filter cleaning process.


The parked filter cleaning process needs to be activated based on usage and operation of the tractor. The process will take approximately 30 minutes.  See the operator's manual for more details.


This system constantly monitors the soot level of the tractor; making sure the tractor is always in peak performance condition.  This ensures high performance at all times.


NOTE: Number of hours since last regeneration and soot level percentage are viewable on LCD display.

Key features of the engine are:
  • Economical cast-in-block cylinder design for good cooling and long life
  • Direct fuel injection
    • Improves starting
    • Injects fuel directly on top of pistons for more efficient combustion
    • Develops more horsepower per liter (gallon) of fuel than indirect injection engines
  • Aluminum alloy pistons are lightweight to reduce connecting rod bearing loads and provide good heat transfer characteristics
    • Design permits tighter tolerances and neutralizes expansion of the piston, which reduces blow-by and noise from piston slap
    • Top rings are higher on the piston and a thinner head gasket is used to greatly reduce the volume of unburned waste gases and increase combustion efficiency
  • Timing gears and injector drive gears have a helical profile to reduce engine noise
  • Auto-bleed fuel system
    • There is no need to prime the system if the tractor runs out of fuel
    • The system will self-prime the injection pump, lines, and injectors, providing fast fuel recovery for easier starting
  • High-capacity lubrication system provides filtered oil, under pressure, to all engine bearings for long life 
  • Key start and shutoff eliminate fuel shutoff knob
    • Electric solenoid shuts the fuel supply off immediately when key is turned off, which replaces the need to pull a fuel shutoff lever like many older tractors
  • Fuel filter with replaceable element
  • Water separator with additional replaceable filter element
  • See-through coolant recovery tank permits operator to check coolant level without removing radiator cap
Dry-type air cleaner Dry-type air cleaner
  • Dry-type air cleaner with safety element
    • Dual element design for added engine protection
    • Easy to service
  • Hood can be easily opened without tools for full access to the engine
  • Easy access to engine check and fill points on the right-hand side of the tractor by removing the side panels.

Easy-to-use hydrostatic transmission (HST) increases tractor performance

The 3E Tractors are available with a two-range hydrostatic transmission (HST) incorporated in a die-cast aluminum transmission case. Fluid under pressure transmits engine power to the drive wheels via a closed-loop pump and motor arrangement. Infinite ground speeds allow the operator to match the speed of the tractor to the job.

  • No clutching for fast and easy direction changes
  • Twin Touch™ foot pedals for quick and easy forward/reverse operation
  • Transmission oil cooler cools transmission oil for longer transmission life

Safety features of the HST include:

  • The tractor will only start with the range lever in neutral
  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat unless the range lever is in neutral
  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat and the power take-off (PTO) is engaged
Twin Touch foot controls
Twin Touch foot controls Twin Touch foot controls

Key John Deere advantage - John Deere's Twin Touch foot controls offer several key advantages over competitive HST models tractors.

  • Some competitive hydrostatic tractors use a treadle pedal (toe-heel) design foot control for operation of the HST
    • Requires the operator to use both toe and heel to change direction, resulting in increased operator fatigue
    • The Twin Touch configuration also makes it easier to "inch" the tractor forward or rearward (i.e., when attaching to implements)
Optional cruise control
Optional cruise control Optional cruise control

The 3E Series Tractors can be outfitted with an optional cruise control switch that is installed on the right-hand control console. This gives operators the ability to keep a constant speed when in transportation, field mowing, or other applications where extended use of the transmission is needed. This kit is very quick and easy to install for those who desire this feature.

Optional two-spool rear selective control valve (SCV) for superior implement performance
Rear hydraulic remote kit Rear hydraulic remote kit

3E Series Tractors can be equipped with a field-installed rear hydraulic remote kit, providing two additional hydraulic spools on the back of the tractor. This kit can be field installed on a tractor with a loader or without a loader.


 NOTE: Not compatible with the power beyond kit.


The functions are completely separate from the loader. These rear remotes can be hooked up to a wide variety of implements and attachments such as follows:

  • Hydraulically angled blade
  • Hydraulically controlled chute/spout on a 3-point hitch-mounted snow blower
  • Hydraulic scarifiers on a box blade
  • Many other hydraulic rear attachments

This versatile kit gives 3E Series Tractor operators the options they desire for putting their tractors into a wide range of tasks.


The first spool is equipped with a float position, giving the operator the ability to contour the landscape and improve the final grade with certain implements.


NOTE: Neither of the spools in this kit are equipped with a detent position; therefore, they should not be hooked up to anything with a motor, as the valve was not designed to be run open. The kit is designed for momentary, on-demand hydraulic flow such as moving a cylinder.

Optional iMatch™ Quick-Hitch feature allows for easy implement hookup
iMatch Quick-Hitch (LVB25976) iMatch Quick-Hitch (LVB25976)

One of the greatest operator concerns involves difficulty in attaching tractor implements. John Deere has addressed this issue with the iMatch Quick-Hitch.

The iMatch Quick-Hitch provides easy hookup and a guaranteed fit for all Category 1 implements that are designed to meet the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) Category 1 Standard S278.6 for quick-attach hitches.

  • All implements require a set of bushings in order for the attachment to fit and work properly with the iMatch Quick-Hitch. One set of bushings comes with the iMatch Quick-Hitch.

NOTE: The bushing set can be seen in the picture above. These bushings allow the hooks on the iMatch and the pins on the implement to fit together properly. All other implements (box blades, tillers, rear blades, etc.) will require a set of bushings to enlarge the pin to fit with the iMatch hooks. Bushings of different lengths can be found in the parts system or through a bushing supplier (see dimensions below).

  • Upper bushing
    • Inside diameter: 1.93-1.95 cm (0.76-0.77 in.)
    • Outside diameter: 3.15-3.18 cm (1.24-1.25 in.)
  • Lower bushings
    • Inside diameter: 2.24-2.26 cm (0.88 to 0.89 in.)
    • Outside diameter: 3.63-3.66 cm (1.43 to 1.44 in.)
Excellent serviceability reduces operational costs and improves productivity

Regular service and maintenance are essential to the performance, productivity, and longevity of the tractor.

A disappointment!

Purchased and finally took delivery in July 2022 after waiting six weeks for the Mechanical Self-Leveling loader to come in. The 3025E seems to be underpowered and the loader with it's lack of "full curl" like the Non-Self Leveling variant is a disappointment. Was hoping for more. However, with no MSL loaders available on dealers' lots and lack of sales knowledge, it's a shot in the dark and unfortunately isn't shared by Deere anywhere on their website or in their videos. About the only plus on this loader when using pallet forks, it keeps your load level. But using the bucket and attempting to scoop a full load of material, it's not achievable. My dealership has attempted to help but claims there is nothing wrong with the product.

Little tractor big performance

I have owned a 3025e for a year now. This little tractor has been great. For a small tractor it will do some big jobs. Pallet forks are a must have for this tractor. When they say it will pickup 1,200 pounds it will and then some. Hands down one of the best purchases of my life.

Best Tractor On The Market For Woodland Work

I recently purchased my Deere 3025E from TriGreen in Winchester, TN outfitted with the Brush Crusher 4200, & Frontier box blade, & liquid ballast in the rear tires. This thing is a beast! I've moved several 8ft-12ft oak & pine logs with an average diameter of approx. 22 inches with ease...I mean, the thing doesn't grunt or show signs of stress at all with those logs. Pulled up a stump that I've been trying to dig out with a shovel, & this thing popped it out of the ground like a rag doll. This thing has a slimmer profile, & the turning radius is amazing so I can really work my way through the woods with ease. I can maneuver this thing into tighter places than my Honda Rancher ATV if you can understand what I mean. Yes, the ATV is smaller, but the tractor can be gently maneuvered in and out of spots that look impossible. If you are dealing with logs, wood, brush etc. you will DEFINITELY appreciate the plastic fenders and hood. It's the same type of quality plastic you'll find on any ATV body. There is a reason they use plastic on these machines that are running and working in the woods. I received the tractor, lift bucket, grapple, & box blade for a better price than any other brand of tractor out there, & I test drove them all. It's a John Deere-holds it value better than any other brand in the market, & the parts/dealer network is the best in the US obviously. The decision was easy for me, & I'm glad I added this tractor to our family.

Good Tractor

It is a little light for brush hogging high grass. But you have to understand, get the right tractor for what it's designed for. You don't brush hog 18" of grass with a 24hp tractor. It was not designed for that. You will bog down the engine just like anything else that gets overloaded. If you are doing a lot of brush hogging in high grass, get a 65hp 4 series with a flexwing mower. But overall, it does just about everything that I need. The lift capacity of the front end loader is pretty good but you have to be careful. You can easily overload it. If you need to do heavy lifting, get the right tractor for your needs. But for what I use it for, it's a great little tractor. I have a 60" finish mower that I use on 3.5 acres. The finish mower does an excellent job. As with any mower, make sure the blades are sharp. Don't sell this tractor short. It has a lot of potential and capabilities. But do your homework first and make sure it's right for what you are going to use it for. I see so many posted CON's where an item is being used beyond it's capabilities. If your using this tractor or any tractor for what it was not designed for, don't post CON's. Only post CON's if it does not perform to it's capabilities.

Fantastic value

We have been needing a tractor with a brush mower, kept looking around for several years now. Did some research and as far as value and warranty for the money, this was the tractor to get. Came with the front loader, added a 5ft rotary (brush) mower and the wife and I are extremely happy with this purchase. We've only had the tractor for a few weeks now, but have gotten so much more done on our property in those few weeks that would have taken much much longer without it. Have projects lined up to do ourselves now that we have it. Even got my youngest daughter using it as well.

Best value you will find

We have larger tractors for the farm but I needed something smaller to haul around and use in residential yards. The 3025 is perfect size. It’s big enough to do stuff but small enough to tow with a half ton p/up. Take care of it and it will hold its value better than any other brand. Get 32 inch pallet forks and add two more forks for brush and save your money on a grapple. It’s amazing what All you can do with this setup and this tractor.

Great machine with exceptional capabilities

I purchased my 3025E in May, 2017. I have owned it for 2.5 years now and it has been absolutely reliable. Not a single trip back to the dealership, and no on site service calls. I use my tractor almost on a daily basis. As of today it has 536.1 hours on it. I got the loader, 60 rotory cutter, 60" box scrap, and a used 48 King Kutter BX roto tiller. I have seen complaints about lack of PTO HP, but that hasn't been my experience with my tractor. I also picked up a used Woods RM59 finish mower, no issues running that either. This is my first tractor, and after doing much research and visiting other dealerships before my purchase, I'm very happy that I went with JD.

Low Pto power, bogs down when shredding field

Ive had my 3025 for about 6 months now. My field is about 6 acres. If you are going to use this to shred (I have the 60" frontier cutter that came with the pkg) I would definitely recommend gettting the 3032 or 3037. The 25 hp from the 3025 with about 17 hp to the pto just dont cut it. No pun intended. Seriously, the tractor bogs down bad. You have to go very slow, foot barely on the pedal, or the pto rpm drops way down. Or even stop moving forward for a few seconds to let it speed back up. Grass height was about 18" first cutting but only about 10" second cutting. I was going to get a 3032 or 3037 but a guy at work told me all new tractors over 25 up now had the exhaust requirement of recycling or soot burning (or whatever) cycle and the exhaust systems were always getting plugged. I talked to john deere and they said the cycle goes well with no exhaust system problems as long as you used low sulfur diesel, which is what you get at the gas station. But they also told me the 3025 would handle that field with no problems. Untrue. It takes me 10-12 hours to mow 6 acres when other tractors have mowed it in 2 or 3. Spend the extra 2000-3000 dollars and get the 3032 or 3037 . you'll be glad u did.
