Deere’s new sub-compact tractors

John Deere introduces the
new 1 Series Sub-compact Utility tractors for the residential market. The 1023E
and 1026R will provide homeowners with the power and performance to easily
attach and remove implements, work with greater comfort and safety, and mow
large volumes of grass with a high quality of cut.

“Never before has there been
this much versatility, comfort and mowing performance in the sub-compact
tractor market,” says Dan Paschke, John Deere Product Marketing Manager. “The 1
Series offers a wide array of features usually seen on larger tractors like a
deluxe lighting package, position control 3-point hitch, and great storage for

The new 1023E (23.5-hp) and
1026R (25.2-hp) can accept dozens of attachments and implements, such as front
loaders, mower decks, rotary tillers, and even a backhoe. Using exclusive
AutoConnectTM technology, operators simply drive over the top of the mowing
deck to attach it to the tractor. In addition, iMatchTM AutoHitch™ compatible
3-point hitch implements can be attached or removed from the tractor’s 3-point
hitch in minutes without ever leaving the seat or using a single tool.

Both tractors have a
wide-stance for increased stability, and a standard folding ROPS system for
roll-over protection. The 1026R also features a deluxe lighting system to
enable work in low-light conditions, cruise control for mowing inopen fields,
tilt steering, a tool box, a 12-volt outlet, and a position control 3-point
hitch which allows the operator to return to the hitch to the same height with
precision and ease.

When mowing, operators can
easily adjust mowing height from the seat of the tractor with the deck height
adjustment knob, and process high volumes of grass with the durable 7-IronTM
deck, made from 7-guage steel.

“The 1 Series is the perfect
tool for property owners who need to do more than just mow the grass,” says
Paschke, “With the ability to quickly, easily, and safely change implements
with John Deere’s exclusive technology, owners will be able to achieve more
than they ever expected with a sub-compact tractor.”

The 1 Series will be
available at John Deere dealers in limited quantities beginning June 6.
Customers can place orders with their local dealer today for Fall delivery.
