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.

• A relocated fuel tank allowing for easier fill and added

• More tyre offerings, including larger R4 size for increased
• Telescoping draft links for easier rear implement connection • A 12-volt outlet on the operator station to keep your
