Reliable gear-driven transmission provides optimum tractor performance

The 3D Tractors are available with a gear drive transmission with eight speeds in both forward and reverse directions. It includes a drivetrain built with heavy-duty components like those used in some John Deere utility tractors. These components ensure a rugged and durable machine.


  • The spiral bevel gear of the 3D machine is larger in diameter than comparable tractors.
  • Column-mounted forward and reverse lever for increased efficiency and comfort when changing directions.

  • Fender-mounted gear shift lever for more comfortable shifting

Safety features of the 3D Series Tractors include:
  • The tractor will only start with the forward/reverse, range, and gear shift levers in neutral.

  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat unless the forward/reverse, range, and gear shift levers are in neutral.

  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat and the power take-off (PTO) is engaged.

Key John Deere advantage - A column-mounted forward/reverse lever is a more ergonomic alternative to the floor-mounted design of the competition. Having controls at the operators fingertips allows for an effortless change in directions at any time.

Gear shift lever Gear shift lever

The 3D is much easier and more comfortable to operate when shifting between gears. The fender-mounted gear shift lever provides the ideal location and placement for the operator’s arm.

Clean and simple operator station is comfortable and convenient

An uncluttered design gives operators of all sizes plenty of room to be comfortable. Color-coded controls are located on either side of the operator.

  • Contoured, comfortable seat enhances operator comfort.
    • Seat position adjusts fore and aft
    • Seat flips forward for protection from the elements
  • Flat operator platform provides for easy entry to/exit from the tractor.
  • Folding Roll-Gard™ rollover protective structure (ROPS) and retractable seat belt increase operator safety.


Operator presence system:

  • If the operator leaves the seat when the forward/reverse and range lever are in gear, the engine shuts down.
  • If the operator leaves the seat when the power take-off (PTO) is engaged, the engine shuts down.

All 3D Series Tractors come standard with a fuel gauge that is easy to read from the operator's station to ensure operators do not run out of fuel. The fuel tank is also located on the rear of the tractor to allow for easy refill.


Operator presence switch (OPS) in seat:

  • OPS requires the operator to be in the seat to operate the transmission or PTO.
  • ROPS is designed to meet or exceed American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) safety standards.
  • Reflective ROPS strips for better tractor visibility.
  • Seat belts are in base equipment on all John Deere compact utility tractors.
  • Key switch interlock prevents bypass starting.
  • Visual PTO warning light on the instrument panel alerts the operator when the PTO is running.
  • Turn signal and flashing warning lights operate according to ASABE standards.

3D Series Tractors are equipped with Roll-Gard ROPS. These folding ROPS meet the ASABE standards for compact utility tractors.


NOTE: The use of seat belts is recommended at all times when operating the 3D Series Tractor with the folding ROPS upright.


An optional canopy is available to help protect the operator from the elements.

Optional two-spool rear selective control valve (SCV) for superior implement performance
Optional rear SCVs Optional rear SCVs

3D 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.


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 3D 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.


The approximate installation time is 1 hour to 1.5 hours.

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 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 bushing
    • 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.

  • Easy access to most regular service points minimizes service time.

  • Tractors are equipped with extensive onboard self-diagnostic capabilities and are fully compatible with the John Deere-exclusive Service ADVISOR™ system.

  • Hydraulic oil service interval increased to 1200 hours when using Hy-Gard™ products. Hydraulic oil filter will need to be changed every 400 hours.

  • Fuel tank is located on the rear of the tractor to allow for easy access when fueling.

  • Four quarter turn fasteners allow operators to easily remove the engine side panels to access the engine compartment
Easy access to engine compartment Easy access to engine compartment
  • Daily service requirements are minimal and simple to accomplish. Most service interval requirements can be performed with a basic understanding of procedures and common tools.


Daily service is quick and easy Daily service is quick and easy

All items in the daily service schedule can be performed without the use of tools:

  • Engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant level, and the water separator can be conveniently accessed.

  • The engine can be easily accessed by simply raising the hood for more periodic maintenance checks.

NOTE: Always refer to the operator’s manual for complete maintenance and service recommendations.

Great tractor

Had this tractor for a few weeks now, for only 25hp I have to say it's done what I've wanted it to do. The only complaint I really have about it, is there is no live pto, which is why I only give this 4 stars. Love the gear drive transmission, it's very quiet for a diesel engine, and it pulls like a beast!

Tough little tractor

Purchased April of 2020 with 5’ brushog and 6,500lb winch which it has no issues with handling either of them. My only gripe is that the R4 tires are so close to the lower 3 pt hitch arms you cannot adjust the drag links correctly, that also means no tire chains... other than that 120hrs strong! Dealer and Salesman were great to deal with picked up a new 333G skidsteer from them this spring as well!

Perfect Basic Tractor

I got my 3025D it in May of 2020. It has been a fantastic basic gear drive tractor. It is perfect for plowing and discing large gardens or food plots. I was a little apprehensive about it being only 25 hp, but I have never lacked power. It suits my needs perfectly.

Overall Great Tractor

I really like the features and ease of operation of this Tractor. A lot of HP to the ground and the PTO. I have a 5' rotary cutter and a 6' roto-tiller that this unit handles easily. I have the quick attach for the 3pt hitch and its awesome. The tractor has decent lifting capacity for its size both bucket and 3pt hitch. We have 60 rural acres in southeast Ga. with 5 rental units and the main home, this is a perfect size for maintaining the mowing and driveway repairs economically.

Strong Little tractor

I purchased in DEC 2019 and went to work, plenty of power and great on fuel. Everything you would expect in a John Deere and I didn't break the bank. Price was very good value for what you get and the best part is the gear drive gives you a real low range, unlike Hydro. One Happy Customer.

2019 3025D review

I wanted a gear driven tractor set up similar to my old 8N and this tractor fit the bill. It has 8 forward and 8 reverse (4 high, 4 low) gears with lots of pulling power. The four wheel drive works great and the 25hp engine has not let me down. I highly recommend the 3 series D unless all you do is loader work. Unlike the old 8N, which had to have an overrunning shaft added, the 3025D has an overrunning clutch that stops the PTO. Breaks can be unlocked and used separately for those tight turns needed in the field, or locked when running down the road.


  • great pulling power
  • power steering is amazing
  • four wheel drive works great
  • seating area is comfortable
  • fuel tank is in a great position behind the seat
  • the bucket comes off and on easy
  • solid built tractor w/more weight than e/r series
  • great console design w/digital hr meter/pto rpm
  • front lights work great
  • brake lights and hazards are great for on road

  • a live pto option would be nice
  • 2nd to 3rd gear ratio in high needs to be closer
  • high/low range shifter at times is in the way
  • the 300e loader does not detach w/out buying a kit
  • rear r4 tires tend to spin in deep dirt or rock
  • can only get on/off on one side
  • bucket level indicator should be standard
