John Deere Redesigns the 3038E Compact Utility Tractor
Crestmead, Queensland (31 August, 2017) – Resulting from extensive customer feedback, John Deere updates its ultra-reliable 3E Series compact utility tractors by reintroducing a customer favourite as an even more capable and intuitive machine. The redesigned 3038E is more versatile, durable and easier-to-use than ever, offering a consistent styling package across the Compact Utility Tractor portfolio.
The John Deere 3038E tractor is powerful and easy to use for customers who maintain their property. For operators who need to manoeuvre their tractors within small spaces such as landscaped properties, sheds and stables, the updated 3038E provides a tighter turning radius than the competition. What's more, this machine is extremely manoeuvrable, even with a loader. This enhancement ensures obstacles can be easily avoided without needing turning brakes or to stop and reverse, increasing efficiency and performance for customers. The wheelbase and weight have also increased to improve machine stability.
Offering the popular features of the original 3E Series, the updated model will continue to deliver top-notch ease of use. Colour coded controls in the operator station are ergonomic and intuitive, increasing overall comfort and convenience during operation. The independent Power Take Off (PTO) system eliminates the need to stop and clutch to engage or disengage the PTO. An easy-to-use, two-range hydrostatic transmission (HST) increases tractor performance while eliminating clutching for fast and easy direction changes. Twin Touch™ foot controls provide an automobile-like experience while reducing operator fatigue.
Designed with reliability in mind, the updated 3038E is ideal for budget-conscious owners and are equipped with features that can significantly save them in maintenance costs over the lifetime of their machines. Available at a competitive price, the 3038E comes standard with industry-exclusive onboard diagnostics for easy troubleshooting. Critical components are protected to mitigate the risk of costly repairs, while wet disk brakes and the PTO clutch design help maximise wear life. Additionally, an increased service interval of 1,200 hours between fluid changes dramatically decreases costs spent on routine maintenance and upkeep of the machine.
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
These hardworking machines go beyond the industry standard offerings, providing reliable performance, versatility, and manoeuvrability at an affordable price.
