John Deere has rein­tro­duced its com­pact 3038E trac­tor af­ter a re­design based on ex­ten­sive cus­tomer feed­back.

Aimed at bud­get-con­scious users, the trac­tor is said to be more ver­sa­tile, durable and eas­ier to use than ever, and means there is now a con­sis­tent styling pack­age across the com­pany’s 3E Se­ries com­pact util­ity trac­tor port­fo­lio.

John Deere has im­proved the 3038E’s turn­ing cir­cle to make it eas­ier to ma­noeu­vre be­tween sheds and stables and in tight land­scapes. The im­prove­ments are de­signed to en­sure ob­sta­cles can be eas­ily avoided with­out need­ing turn­ing brakes or to stop and re­verse, which in­creases ef­fi­ciency and per­for­mance for cus­tomers, John Deere says.

Other fea­tures of the trac­tor in­clude in­creased wheel­base and weight, and the use of “er­gonomic and in­tu­itive” colour-coded con­trols in the cab.

The in­de­pen­dent Power Take Off (PTO) sys­tem elim­i­nates the need to stop and clutch to en­gage or dis­en­gage the PTO, and an easy-to-use, two-range hy­dro­static trans­mis­sion (HST) in­creases trac­tor per­for­mance while elim­i­nat­ing clutch­ing for fast and easy di­rec­tion changes, John Deere says.

“Twin Touch foot con­trols pro­vide an au­to­mo­bile-like ex­pe­ri­ence while re­duc­ing op­er­a­tor fa­tigue,” the com­pany adds.

On-board di­ag­nos­tics for eas­ier trou­bleshoot­ing come as standard on the new mod­els.

Other notable changes in­clude:

• A re­lo­cated fuel tank al­low­ing for eas­ier fill and added

ca­pac­ity

• Side pan­els and cowl­ing that is quickly re­moved with­out tools

for easy en­gine ac­cess

• More tyre of­fer­ings, in­clud­ing larger R4 size for in­creased

ground clear­ance

• Tele­scop­ing draft links for eas­ier rear im­ple­ment con­nec­tion • A 12-volt out­let on the op­er­a­tor sta­tion to keep your

elec­tron­ics charged.
