The 2R Tractors 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 transmission include:
Key John Deere advantages – John Deere’s Twin Touch foot controls offer several key advantages over competitive HST models tractors.
An electronic cruise control is standard equipment on the 2R Tractors. Cruise control is electronically engaged and disengaged using a toggle switch located on the right-hand console.
The 2036R Tractors come equipped with the eThrottle feature. This feature is designed to reduce the amount of full throttle usage for less noise production and to consume less fuel. With eThrottle engaged, the engine rpms 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 hitch and loader work and when transporting on roads or in parking lots.
To enable the system, the operator simply presses the switch located on the right side of the front console. Once the system is enabled, engine speed will then increase or decrease in unison as the TwinTouch transmission pedals are depressed.
For loader work, operator 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, eThrottle will help provide the feeling of a power boost when the customer is filling the bucket with material from a pile. The harder the TwinTouch pedal is pressed, the more engine speed the operator will get. In this scenario, as the operator 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.
For transport applications or snow removal, it is recommended to engage eThrottle but leave the hand throttle set to low-idle so that eThrottle can control the entire range of engine speed from 0 percent up to 100 percent.
In power take-off (PTO) applications such as mowing or snow blowing, it is not recommended to use eThrottle because PTO implements usually require a constant speed in order to properly function.
The optional eThrottle for the 2025R is mechanical and can be ordered factory installed (option code 8290).

The operator station has been designed to allow for greater operator comfort and increased visibility. The ergonomic layout and convenient color coded controls allow for easy identification and operation. The design of the operator station allows operators to sit in as opposed to on, which provides comfort and increased stability
Below are other key features of the 2R Tractors operator’s station:
Key features of the operator’s station include:
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).
The 2036R Tractor features an updated CommandCut mower deck lift system, which allows quick and accurate adjustments of the mower deck with the turn of a dial and the bump of a lever. Control callouts make operation simple and repeatable. The height-of-cut (HOC) setting dial and raise/lower lever are conveniently located on the right-hand console and easily accessible by the operator. Some of the key benefits of this system are:
Regular service and maintenance are essential to the performance, productivity, and longevity of the tractor.
All items in the daily service schedule can be performed without the use of tools:
NOTE: Always refer to the operator’s manual for complete maintenance and service recommendations.
