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.
Column-mounted forward and reverse lever for increased efficiency and comfort when changing directions.
Fender-mounted gear shift lever for more comfortable shifting
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 operator's fingertips allows for an effortless change in directions at any time.
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.
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.
Operator presence system:
The thick, soft padding on this seat provides a smooth and comfortable ride.
Easy-to-read instrument panel includes the following:
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:
Instrument panel has an indicator light for the park brake.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
