Compact Utility Tractor
Power is provided by a durable and efficient high-torque three-cylinder Yanmar® TNV Series diesel engine.
This series of engines was developed to meet Tier 4 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) environmental requirements by featuring low levels of both exhaust and emissions.

The 2R Series are equipped 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.
Safety features of the HST include:
Transmission has two speeds - hi and lo range.
Durability features include:
Optional premium independent mid lift system operates independent of the rear 3-point hitch. This gives the operator the flexibility to leave the mid mower attached when completing other tasks.
The operator’s station has been designed to allow for greater operator comfort and increased visibility. The ergonomic layout and convenient color coded controls with large labels allow for easy identification and operation. Large and easy to grab handrails are located on each fender for an easier on and off of the tractor from either side.
Below are other key features of the 2025R Tractor operator’s station:
The thick, soft padding on this seat provides a smooth and comfortable ride. A high, scalloped back makes it easier for the operator to turn to view rear implements.
Key features of the operator’s station include:
Standard equipment lighting includes:
For those operators requiring additional lighting, additional light options are available as a field fit kit:
NOTE: Lights mounted to the ROPS will require the warning light brush guard kit.
Optional work light brush guards can ordered to protect lights from debris.
The optional premium independent lift system has been improved over the current 1 Family system by now allowing the operator to have full control of the mower deck in both the raise and lower positions. When the operator reaches the desired height, the button can be released and the deck will hold its position. This feature reduces the effort required to adjust the height-of-cut (HOC) dial and it also allows for quick height changes on the go.
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.
NOTE: Always refer to the operator’s manual for complete maintenance and service recommendations.
An optional auto throttle kit is available for the 2025R Tractors. This feature is designed to make the tractor quieter and use less fuel. With auto throttle installed, the engine rpm and transmission speed will increase as the Twin Touch™ pedals are depressed. This feature can be beneficial for use in many different applications, especially for front loader work and when transporting on roads or in parking lots.
For loader work, producers will get maximum benefit from the system by increasing engine rpm with the hand throttle to at least 50 percent. Once the hand throttle is set, auto throttle will help provide the feeling of a power boost when the producer is filling the bucket with material from a pile. The harder the hydro pedal is pressed, the more engine speed available. In this scenario, as the producer presses the pedal, the engine will operate between 50 percent throttle and 100 percent throttle. It will not go below 50 percent until the hand throttle is lowered back down.
In power take-off (PTO) applications such as mowing or snow blowing, auto throttle is not recommended because PTO implements usually require a constant speed in order to properly function.
