Features



Drive-over deck makes connection simple Drive-over deck makes connection simple

1 Family Tractors are designed to minimize the time and effort needed to switch-out implements to accommodate different jobs.

 

  • AutoConnect Deck System: Connect a mid-mount mower deck to the tractor in less than 60 seconds without leaving the seat except to lock the gauge wheels.
    • Load-N-Go attachment: Easily move your 54D or 60D Autoconnect Deck with your John Deere Loader after it has been disconnected from the tractor with the Load-N-Go ramps.
  • Quik-Park™ Loader System: 120R Quik-Park™ Loaders are designed for easy mounting and removal in about a minute, with no tools needed.
  • Quik-Tatch™ front hitch: Save time switching front implements like a snow blower, rotary broom, or front blade without tools.
  • iMatch™ quick-hitch: Easily hookup Category 1 implements in seconds using three fixed points to back in and pick up rear implements without leaving the seat
    • Position control hitch: Set the rear hitch height and then consistently lower the hitch to the exact height every time, which is especially useful in grading and leveling applications.
  • Quik-Knect™ system: Connect power take-off (PTO)-driven implements quickly and with low physical effort. The Quik-Knect system utilizes one connector for the tractor’s PTO shaft and a designated connector for each implement which eliminates twisting and forcing splines to align.

 

1 Family Tractors can have up to three implements mounted simultaneously due to standard dual selective control valves (SCVs), allowing you to switch from using one implement to another without stopping to adjust. When a third SCV kit is added, the number of possible combinations is greatly increased.

Twin Touch™ pedals Twin Touch™ pedals

The hydrostatic transmission’s infinite ground speeds and direction of travel are both controlled with the Twin Touch foot pedals.

  • Ideal for loader or mower applications where frequent direction and speed changes are needed
  • No clutching for fast direction changes
  • Match the job at hand with infinite ground speeds
Standard 4WD and power steering make 1 Family Tractors excellent for mowing Standard 4WD and power steering make 1 Family Tractors excellent for mowing

Both 4WD and power steering are standard equipment on the 1 Family Tractors. This combination allows for excellent maneuverability and ease of operation.

  • Narrow overall width allows you to work in tight areas where most compact tractors just cannot fit. The 144.8-cm (57-in.) wheel base and 119.4 cm (47 in.) overall width gives great stability for all types of terrain.
  • Power steering means fewer turns of the steering wheel than manual steering, which is especially valuable when mowing around obstacles or during front loader work.
  • High horsepower-to-weight ratio makes the 1 Family Tractors a good choice for a variety of tasks. The overall tractor weight reduces ground compaction and makes them excellent for mowing.
  • The fully-independent power take-off (PTO) allows engaging and disengaging of the PTO without stopping tractor movement. This is important when driving across obstacles such as driveways while mowing.
Open operator's station (1025R shown) Open operator's station (1025R shown)

The 1023E open operator station is designed for greater comfort and increased visibility.

 

Comfortable operation  

  • Thick, textured rubber floor mat reduces vibrations and absorbs shock and noise.
  • Step-through flat platform and fender-mounted handrails make it easy to get on and off the tractor from either side.
  • Controls are conveniently located next to the fenders and are color-coded for quick identification.
  • Easy-lift hood with dual gas-charged lift struts as standard equipment. A simple flip of the latch lets you open the rugged composite hood, providing wide open access to the engine compartment.
  • Foldable rollover protective structure (ROPS) keeps you protected during operation and improves the ability to store tractor in a garage.
Foldable Roll-Gard ROPS Foldable Roll-Gard ROPS

Foldable Roll-Gard™ ROPS is standard equipment on 1023E.

Increased visibility

  • Sloping hood design provides improved visibility especially during front loader work
  • Standard lighting equipment allows you to work from early in the morning to late at night:
    • Two front-mounted sealed-beam halogen headlights
    • Two amber-flashing warning/hazard lights mounted on the side of the ROPS with reflectors
    • Built-in tail light on one warning/hazardous light

Standard mechanical mower lift
 
The standard mechanical mower lift system moves the mower in conjunction with the rear implements and comes factory-installed on 1 Family Tractors.


 
Optional hydraulic mower lift
 
The optional hydraulic mower lift system allows the mower to be raised and lowered independently of the rear implements. It uses the loader joystick to lift and lower the mower deck.


 
Optional independent hydraulic mower lift
 
The optional independent hydraulic lift system allows the mower to be raised and lowered independently of the rear and front implements. It operates using a rocker switch mounted on the tractor, located at the operator’s left knee.

One of the greatest customer 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 ASAE Category 1 Standard S278.6 for quick-attach hitches.

  • All implements require a set of bushings in order for the attachment to fit and work properly with the iMatch Quick-Hitch. One set of bushings comes with the iMatch Quick-Hitch.

 

NOTE: In the picture above, you see the bushing set. 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).

  • Upper bushing
    • Inside diameter: 0.76-0.77 in.
    • Outside diameter: 1.24-1.25 in.
  • Lower bushings
    • Inside diameter: 0.88 to 0.89 in.
    • Outside diameter: 1.43 to 1.44 in.
iMatch quick-coupler bushing kitiMatch quick-coupler bushing kit

This bushing kit is for use with Category 1 implements (ballast box) to make them function correctly with the iMatch Quick-Hitch.

Great little tractor for 3 acres.

5/5

I just purchased my 1023e 2 months ago. I have 120 r loader,boxscrape and also bought a set of Deere 42 inch pallet forks. I decided not to purchase the drive over deck.I purchased a Speeco quick hitch at Agri supply. I'm well pleased so far with my purchase. The pallet forks are convenient to have and the quick hitch makes changing implements so easy.I also use a 6ft. Woods scraper blade that is quick hitch compatible.You can accomplish many tasks on your property with this little machine.

The 1023E: Why did I wait so long to get one?!

5/5

Keep in mind I'm old John Deere hand from back in the 60's. I've always been biased towards John Deere due to actual experience with many different tractor and implement manufactures from back then. Today I'm retired, permanently disabled due to my back, and up until now I've not had any relationship with farming and equipment since back then. What a godsend! In three weeks I managed to clear the entirety of my property of tumbleweed, grease plant, assorted other brush, and landscape everything right from the seat of my new John Deere tractor using the 120R bucket loader and the 48" Frontier Box Scraper. All from the comfort of the seat of my tractor which I couldn't believe would be so comfortable. I live in the high desert mountains of California where wildfires are a real threat and weed abatement is a must. I scraped everything down to the desert sand and it looks great! No more fire hazard. On top of that, filled in all the low spots, dressed off the perimeter fence line, and then set to bringing in the firewood. The disk between the vertebrae in my spine is just plain gone. Hence I can't bend over and straighten up to accomplish what most would take for granted. Thanks to my new John Deere tractor and the bucket loader I can simply drive over to the firewood where I have it delivered and stacked, put the bucket down on the ground right next to it, then bend over one time to load the bucket brimming full. Then it's use the bucket loader arms to pull myself back up, slip into the seat, and drive right to the front door where I raise the bucket to chest level and take the firewood from the front door right to the woodstove hearth and stack it. No longer do I have to hope my son shows up to visit to bring in the firewood for me. I can once again do it for myself and have the benefit of enjoying it in the process. Next project, three point hitch mounted PTO driven generator for when the power goes out. Love that iMatch Quick Connect!

Pros

  • comfortable to ride and use
  • small tractor does the big boy jobs
  • nothing runs like a deere

Cons

  • needs a three point hitch float position
  • should come with a free jd hoodie sweatshirt

Great Investment

5/5

This small tractor was one of the best investments I've made for my place out in the country. I till, dig, haul, drag, push, and in the winter I plow a lot of snow at my place. No regrets other than waiting so long to make the purchase.

Impossible to connect hydraulic “quick disconnect”

1/5

No support numbers. Hydraulic quick disconnect ...sure disconnect ...just try to connect. Never mind moving levers to lose hydraulic pressure that doesn’t work. Can’t hammer them on even. Nothing quick about that.So...can’t use mower or bucket. No support from dealer or website. So it sits. Sell, sell sell once that’s done good luck.

Can't beat the quality for the money spent

5/5

This tractor has easily done everything I've asked it to do. I bought it with the 120R FEL and the 54" AutoConnect Deck. I've also used it with the attachments I already had, a 4' box blade and a 4' bush hog. It replaced my 2001 445, which also had a 40 FEL and the above mentioned attachments, but the 1023E despite being of the same hp rating is easily 50% to twice as much tractor without being much larger. My 445 served me very well, but now I wish I had purchased the 1023E much sooner. The turning radius is still excellent, 4X4 with low is super powerful. The drive-over deck and quick park loader are actually just as easy as advertised. My only complaint so far is the cheap plastic keepers for the hood panel. So far I've added the ballast box, quick hitch and the quick-tach pallet forks as well. Dumping the bucket and picking up the forks are as easy as un-clipping tow pins and letting the tractor do the rest.

Awesome TRACTOR FOR VALUE AND FUN

5/5

I've had my 1023e for the better part of 2 years. I considered the 500 and 700 lawnmowers as what I got this for was mostly cutting grass. My previous mower was a Honda Harmony H1011 Riding mower that worked great, but took well more than an hour to cut the yard and did require a bit of body English to get traction in some of the challenging sections. I have always liked John Deere products so my bias is showing. My machine (named Jade) cut the mowing time down to 20 minutes but I spend more than that out cutting anything I can find (road frontages mostly as well as the street side parts of my country neighbors). It's great fun to ride on (and cut grass). Durability has been great (no trips to the shop except for initial oil change and servicing). I get about a year's worth of grass cutting out of 10 gallons of diesel (basically it uses about a gallon per hour). The four wheel drive is a beast, especially when I press the rear locker down with my heal. I've taken out more of the woods at my property and have been mowing over the weeds that grew back. If you really want something that is pretty cool, take a test drive. The dealership in Williamsburg Virginia is awesome too. Just saying. Kindest regards, Donner Grigsby

  • nothing runs like a deer

What is with the hydraulics ?

2/5

I purchased this model (1023e my 3rd John Deere) when my GT225 was showing its age at 20yrs. Started off fine but the hoses on the hydraulics lines started showing lots of wear due to Rubbing on either the mower deck of something else. It only has 138 hours on it and one of the lines started leaking. I have had it for 4 years, it now sits in the shop waiting on repair part. Frankly, I am not happy with this model. I have a my 5310 that is a champ at 19 yrs old and my gt225, square baler, disc mower and tedder all are green. The 1023e just hasn't been as reliable as my other Deerequipment

Pros

  • love the mower deck

Cons

  • design defect in hose placement

Very Good Tractor

4/5

Never owned a tractor until this 1023e. Watched a bunch of tractor Mike videos, looked at a Kubota and chose John Deere. Power was not an issue because we are suburban on 3 acres. The 1023e is on the low end of Sub Compact power. Meets all of our needs. Also got wheel weights and beet juice in tires. The D120 Pin on Loader was over a thousand bucks less than the H120 Quick Change loader. So we bought the D120. Glad we did. Rarely take the loader off. Twice a year. Its the loader you need and use the most. Only takes 15 minutes to switch it out. Had dealer weld on chain hooks to bucket. Use them a lot. Sips fuel. Oil stays clean. Easy to maintain and keep looking new. We keep it in a garage. 15k is too much to let sit outside. Compared to Kubota I tried, John Deere sounds better and looks better. I thought it looked better built. Plastic hood and fenders are a good idea I think. Dash board is fine. Some complain its dated, Please. Its a tractor. I would rather have my gas gauge on the fender if that's what it takes to make it reliable and accurate. Which it is. The dashboard has all the info you need to maintain and operate. I will admit tractors are hazardous. Careful with kids around. Careful climbing on and off while its running. We started a rule where it has to be shut off before climbing on and off. Otherwise you are relying on the safety systems. Hooked a jacket on the Forward lever too many times. The safety switch stopped the engine every time, thank goodness. Just take it slow all the time and think before acting. Swinging the bucket around will do real damage to your parked car, or getting the PROPS hooked on a branch, or too much weight in loader causing rear wheels to bounce etc. etc..... Respect the PTO. I haven't had these mishaps, however once I started using tractor a few months, all these issues come into play. Love the tractor and the new found tractor culture. Again, very useful piece of equipment.

Pros

  • well built and useful

Cons

  • expensive like all tractors

Excellent little TRACTOR

5/5

I have owned my 1023e for over a year now and absolutely love it. I have the H120 quick connect loader that is a snap to install and remove, on average I would say connecting and disconnecting the loader is less than two minutes. I also have the 54d mower deck with auto quick connect, this system works excellent. I am on average about one minute connecting and disconnecting the drive over deck. The mowing quality is excellent no scalping an no uneven cut lines. The mower deck has just as good of quality cut as my commercial zero turn (z920m). With this tractor I also purchased a Frontier RT1149 tiller that works awesome and connecting is a breeze with my I-Match quick connect. My Frontier 2048 yard box works great behind my 1023e. I am extremely happy with my tractor and feel it is an exceptional good piece of machinery. I purchased it at Washington Tractors Chehalis location from Robin Henderson and was treated excellent.

Pros

  • appearance
  • quality
  • quick attach mower deck
  • quick attach loader
  • rugged
  • stability
  • ease of use
  • fuel consumption
  • starts great in cold weather

Cons

  • short warranty period

Poor quality, surprisingly fragile!

1/5

Rear implement third point broke on the first day, (it is now still at the dealer, 9 days so far, waiting for someone to look at it). This is supposed to be a solid steel part, you would not expect it to break just because you pushed the Hydraulic lever when the pin is not fully inserted (trying to align the pin so it can be inserted). Ride over mower is extremely hard to mount, the lift arms do not go low enough. Tried for hours, it is now at the dealer, they will check... Field mower wheel fell off after 10 minutes (installed at the dealer with the wrong, too small, pin).

One heck of a tractor

5/5

I was skeptical of these small tractors. Boy was I surprised. Bought it less than a year ago and it's done everything I've wanted it to do. From mowing grass to tilling to blowing snow with the rear mount blower. Has plenty of power and have about 110 hours on it.

Disappointed in Loader

4/5

My only issue has been with the loader. The power and torque from the engine is good, although having used the 1023 for a while, I would probably pony up for the 1026 were I to buy it again. I have 2 acres to mow, and the 54" mower deck does well without scalping some bumps and hills. I use much less diesel compared to my neighbor's gasoline Deere. I like the relatively soft on/off of the PTO. I have not used the 3 pt on the back for anything but carrying a 450 lb counterweight for the loader. Since the mower is PTO driven, I don't expect any problems when I get a tiller this spring. I have been a little disappointed in the loader. The bucket has good breakout and loading capabilities. I've used it mostly for hauling dirt, hauling rock and moving snow, and a full bucket carries well. One problem I have is the responsiveness varies widely, even over a few minutes and is often very, very slow. The other problem I have is that I can set the bucket at a 30 degree angle and put the boom in float for smoothing backwards, and the bucket will settle to nearly flat under the weight of the boom. This is with a completely empty bucket. I have had Deere out to look at the loader three times. They replaced a leaky cylinder, hydraulic lines, and eventually gave me an enormous pressure limiting valve at the quick connect that slowed the response to something ridiculous that I eventually took back out. The cause could easily be the same for both concerns, maybe a hinky valve. Feels somewhat like air in the lines, but there is no bleed procedure in the manual. Works well enough, I guess, but the loader is out of warranty now, with the dealership not finding a solution. Started out working to my expectations, so I'm not sure what changed.

jduser

4/5

I've owed the 1023e for 4.5 years now. It came with the 54" deck and the front loader. I also ordered a 47" pto driven jd tiller. The tiller is great. I've also owned a x495 #now in the x700 series# w/a 62" deck for 10 years now. The x495 is my choice when mowing. Lower center of gravity on the x495 gives a better ride and the 1023e deck seems to scalp a lot. The 1023e has been running rough when I first start it this summer but it always gets going after about 10 seconds of coughing/sputtering. This morning it wouldn't crank. The glow plug light comes on and I could hear the fuel pump but nothing when I turned the key. I suspect a bad operator presence switch. I've never had it stuck and w/weight on the rear, it's great for clearing snow or moving dirt. Big difference is the x495 has NEVER bogged down while mowing tall grass but the 1023e doesn't seem to have the same level of power although the engines are very similar and the 1023e has a smaller deck. I debated the extra $1000. for the additional 2hp when deciding to purchase and now wish I had? The 1023e is great when I'm cutting firewood/cleaning up. Fuel gauge on 1023e seems to be afterthought compared to x495 dash gauge w/backlight. I tolerate the 1023e for mowing but it's great when using for front loader or tilling.

Pros

  • tilling
  • front loader

Cons

  • under powered
  • rough riding
  • scalps lawn

Good, just not as good

4/5

I am very happy with my 1023E, but should have bought a zero turn to do the lawn mowing and just use the tractor for mowing the pasture and plowing. Perhaps the rear deck may work better, but the tractor rocks from side to side and tends to cut into the lawn if set to low. My LX277 never did that no matter what speed I was moving. The bucket is fantastic and the main reason I bought this model, now I need to get some garden implements.

I really like the tractor.

4/5

The tractor is a breeze to operate. It really surprised me at the power it has the work it can do. The loader is also easy to operate. I have the 60" mowing deck. You can cut a lot of grass fast. The only thing i would change about the mowing deck, is i think the wheels should have been made to swivel 360 degrees. When you are mowing and you turn at least one of the wheels will drag the ground, thus dragging the grass up leaving the ground bare. Other than this, i really do like the whole combination.

One tough little tractor!

5/5

I expect a lot out of everything I own. So far, my 1023e has done everything I needed it to. Sometimes, I've had to ask it a little differently than I would a bigger tractor, but I've gotten results out of it that I honestly didn't expect to get. This past summer I cut down 37 pines in my yard, most were 22-28 inches in diameter and 60-80 feet tall. My 1023e "bulldozed" all the limbs we cut from the logs, creating a 100' long pile 15' wide and 8' high, and moved and stacked the logs, which were left whole and WAY exceeded anything the tractor is rated to do. Some maintenance, some unexpected repairs (mostly covered by the warranty), and some repairs for things I just tore up...nothing major, and nothing that was too expensive. Speaking of expensive, however...the one downside was what I paid for it...you get a quality little workhorse of a machine, but it's going to cost you a pretty penny!

Pros

  • durable
  • well-designed and executed

Cons

  • expensive!

I've enjoyed this equipment. I would recommend a front end attachment at purchase, even if you do not think you'll have an immediate use. You quickly find the need and you will wish you'd included a loader or something with the front end disconnect. Watch out for low limbs and running too close to buildings. The rear lights mounted to the roll frame can easily get clipped. Generally a great tool!

Tractor fine, mower deck is junk.

3/5

Mower deck is not user friendly. Shuts off every time you back up. Dial that is supposed to remember mower height does not work. Dial is very inaccurate and does not truly indicate mower position. Mower constantly skulls the grass. Insufficient rollers and placed in the wrong position. Previous mower did not of this. Ask Cub Cadet how they did it. Tractor itself is fine, but throws lots of heat back on the operator. Not nice on a summer day. Again mower deck is terrible.

There are a few unresolved issues with this product.

3/5

The collection system I purchased with my 1023 has been for the most part a disappointment. It just does not pick up debris the way I have experienced my past systems working. I expected an improvement or at least as good as what I was replacing. Also the 3 point is lacking the ability to put it in a float mode which makes it very ineffective for grading and grooming driveways and landscapes. The snow thrower seems to plow snow at the edges and lets a wake of snow at the edges of every pass which requires a second pass to clean. I have made my dealer aware of all these complaints and have no resolve on any of the issues. They have opened cases on all issues with John Deere. I am happy the way the mower deck cuts grass, and have been pleased with the loader.

Pros

  • loader
  • mower

Cons

  • collection system
  • 3point control
  • snow thrower

I am 60 + years old and wanted a tractor and loader to handle heavy lifting and carry around tools and supplies for various projects around the yard and in my work shop so I wouldn't have to depend on someone to help me. It is like having a hired hand on call 24/7. It is so easy to remove the loader and attach the self connecting mower deck in about 5 minutes I can be ready to mow the grass.

1023E with quick connect mower deck

4/5

I've had the tractor now for a little more than 2 years. Barely put 50 hours on it but I have used enough to know all the features. Overall the tractor is very high quality as you would expect from JD. I have both the detachable front loader and mower deck. Other options include turf tires and hood guard. Generally, the detachable features work very well. My only gripes are 1# that for the mower deck, you must be on complete flat, level surface for the drive on drive off quick connect to work. I have yet to find that perfectly level spot that this is done without getting off the tractor and yanging on the fittings to get it to lock in place. Also, the turf tires. Since the majority of the work ive done with the tractor is non-turf related, should have stuck with the stock traction tires. With a 500-700 lb load in the loader, it really stressed the front turf tires #yes the tires are at full inflation). Overall, I am very happy with the tractor. I did compare to others such as the Kubota but with the features offered as standard and additional add ons, you cant beat the JD series 1's.

Pros

  • reliability has been excellent

Cons

  • quick connect mower deck not so quick

This product has good features

3/5

I was told that this machine would cost me less to operate than my old gas engine 445. Come to find out it uses 1.4 gallons per hour. Plus I've had it in 3 times for uneven cutting (3/4 inch to 1 inch lower on the chute side.) The last date in for repair was 8/14/15. Just starting cutting since last adjustment, but got chased by rain.

love it, easy to use, but quality has us concerned

3/5

We love the tractor, it's easy to use and is plenty powerful enough to do everything we need, from digging post holes, digging out stumps, hauling wood, sand, stone, stonedust, compost, manure, etc. This is our first JD, we have the H120 loader and 260 backhoe. We use it, but don't abuse it. We've had it just under 2 years and have about 70 hours on it. However, we have grown concerned about quality. When we first bought it, within the first 5 hours the hydraulic pump starting making odd noise, we called and found out that there was a PIP (recall), then we were told that it would cost $180 for pick up and drop off for the work to be done, thankfully we had a really good sales person who understood that would be unreasonable when we had owned the tractor for less than two weeks and had only ~7 hours on it. The tractor is kept garaged at all times. The next 65 hours went well, then a month ago we saw a leak on the garage floor under the stabilizer foot for the backhoe and sure enough the stabilizer cylinder was leaking. Thankfully it's still under warranty, but that runs out in another 2 weeks or so and we are worried with two issues already at only 70 hours what may be next... our expectation when buying it was several years and at least 250+ hrs of normal casual use without any issues at all. Hopefully these were just a fluke...

Would not recommend

2/5

Was disappointed that the 1023 E did not compare with the same quality as the 2210: At the out set the battery would not hold a charge, it was replaced. The wire under the seat shorted out and the tractor would not run and had to be repaired. The quick connect mower on more than one occasion fell off the tractor and was run over. I now have pins through the mower to the frame to prevent the mower form falling off the unit. I am displeased with the quality of the purchase.

Very versatile machine

4/5

The 1023e is a well thought out machine. The ability to switch out implements by removing just a few pins is outstanding. The loader has an impressive capacity for something so small. I've used it for a little over 50 hours to do everything from mow with the 60D, move 10 yards of fill dirt and 20 yards of rock to make a pad for a portable building, tow a gang reel mower and re-contour a ditch. The only issues I've had are the loader hydraulic couplings leak when disconnected from the tractor even when stored high on the loader and pointed vertically. The front bracket on the mower has gotten caught on the loader frame a couple of times as I've backed off the mower.

Pros

  • versatile
  • sturdy and powerful

Cons

  • hydraulic coupling leak
  • mower bracket can catch on loader

I brought this tractor after seeing a friend have one. The ease of putting on the attachments and the double peddle for forward and reverse is great. It takes me half the time to mow and with the tires that is on it I thought is would mark up my yard but it doesn't, you can't tell if I mow with a hand mower or the tractor which is great.

1023e is not a good little tractor.

2/5

I have been pro John Deere and have owned many. This little tractor by far fails on quality. High fuel consumption, low on power when mowing grass. Mows bad. Leaves streaks, mows uneven. I have done all proper alignments and this things mow quality is terrible. Mow quality is worse when mowing any kind of incline or hill. The 60 inch auto connect is a joke. I spend more time getting deck connected than I did with old mower that I jacked up and manually removed deck. Height adjustment knob has never worked properly. I have to remove the knob and use pliers to adjust height setting. I have replaced two deck bearings in under 60 hours. When running the deck sounds like it is going to fall apart. I would take my old 445 over this thing any day. My friend has a 1026r and it is no better. Mows terrible. Seat was broke after 30 hours. I had to weld a bracket on it. I think this is a Chinese made tractor with Green Paint and if it is not then John Deere should be ashamed. I would not buy another 1023e or 1026-25 series tractor and I would not recommend anyone buy one.

Pros

  • green

Cons

  • poor build quality

Love that I can do it all with this tractor! I mow about 6 acres of lawn, grade my long driveway, use a subsoil ripper to pop up dead stumps and if I need to dig in hard soil, stir up my huge leave piles with the loader, that I have created with the power flow blower attached to my 60" deck! I wish I had bought it 5 or 10 years earlier!

Front Loader

4/5

I got the standard front loader on my 1023E, not the quick connect option. The dealer demonstrated the standard loader removal & reattachment procedure. Simple and easy enough. However on my tractor I have some issues attaching & removing the loader. The top right pin is always very difficult to remove and replace while the other pins are able to be removed and/or installed with no effort whatsoever. It is as if the top right attachment hole is misaligned. I have told the dealer about this problem and their response was " well thats just the way it is sometimes". Very disappointing and no effort to address the problem. The bucket is always removed and reattached on a level concert garage floor. The tractor is less than 1 year old.

Tough little tractor

5/5

when I bought my John Deere, the sales man told me "This little tractor has no idea how small it is". I would have to say he was correct, since purchasing, this tractor has pushed snow, carried and graded several tons of top soil, removed a deck and just keeps going, going and going. I never considered purchasing a different brand and I am glad. If I ever wear out this one I will certainly replace it with another Deere, because nothing runs like a Deere.....

Just a tractor

3/5

Some things about this tractor are excellent, like the drive-on mower deck. Other things, like the plastic hood and the exposed fuel line are not good. In the 3 years I've owned this tractor, I've replaced the mower gear box, fixed the 3-point hitch, replaced a damaged fuel line and determined that it just plain won't run in winter without fuel treatment. I expected more from Deere and from one of the highest priced products in the category

Pros

  • drive-on mower deck

Cons

  • cheap plastic hood
  • 3-point hitch connections
  • exposed fuel lines

It can be tough getting the implements on and off. This is a very expensive tractor to operate. One of my quick disconnects is not so quick.

The Wife Is So Happy

5/5

The wife is so happy I broke down and got your 1023E 1 family tractor. It has been a God send in helping us around the new homestead. Leveling out the road base for the carport bard, raising walls for the new storage barn, moving around material and making a new drainage ditch out front. The only problem I've had was one of the hydraulic lines gave way but with the warranty was able to have the original hose repaired until a new one was placed back in stock and now have it as a standby. Even gave me a gallon of fluid if it was needed. So if a One Family/Compact tractor is all you need I recommend getting one.

Pros

  • tough little bugger.

Cons

  • check your fluid levels hydralic was over full.

Best investment

5/5

The only thing I would change on the tractor is the deck height adjustment. The dial can be difficult to turn at times. Other than that the tractor is the perfect size for me. It's not to big of a mower and can still maneuver in tight spaces. It can clear snow with the loader and a rear blade, smooths my driveway, and hauls small square bales around. The tractor is perfect on a 10" post hole digger and we are still finding uses for it.

Pros

  • 4wd and agility
  • not to big for small jobs but not to small for big

Cons

  • deck height adjustment

I love my 1023e. Wish I had bought one years ago. Mine has a front loader and a backhoe attached. The hours of back breaking labor this unit has saved me are innumerable. I have used it to dig trenches for drain tile, remove tree stumps, dig up berms, haul everything from mulch to stone, boulders and logs. It only has 30 hours on it so far, but they are 30 hours of hard work. I have had absolutely no problems with my tractor. All my neighbors are jealous.

Punches above its weight

5/5

The 1023E is nimble enough to get into tight places where a larger tractor would do too much damage to turf and ornamental plants or where a larger vehicle just won't fit. I saved several thousand dollars by digging up my own water pipe to locate a leak. It did a good job of clearing snow off a quarter mile of local road (several times) with the front end loader. I do not have the time and you do not have the space to list a fraction of the tasks done by this tractor. The ergonomics are excellent and I have received good advice and service from my local dealer.

I have had my 1023E tractor for a year and a half and it is just awesome. I have cleared brush. dug holes, towed 40 ft. poles, mowed lawn, and plowed snow to name a few things I have done with it. The only issues I have had are in the winter while plowing snow it sucks snow into the air intake when the snow is over 2 ft. deep, and it uses more fuel than I thought it would but is very cheep to operate. Why would you buy any other tractor than a John Deere?

This tractor is very easy to operate for being disabled there is not a tractor out there that could do what the 1023e can do. for starters the auto connect deck just drive over the deck and your good to go! the H120 loader is unbelievable all you do is line it up push the clips down connect the 4 hoses and your done! The workmanship on this tractor is A+ just look at it and could tell the quality is there.That they took pride in every nut and bolt! this tractor is worth every penny!!

Good Tractor

4/5

This little tractor is tough and does a great job! I bought the front loader with this tractor and use it more than I thought I would, given that I probably should have bought the quick connect model. My only complaints would be the quick disconnect mower deck needs a little tweaking. This was one of the primary reasons I went with the 1023E and it's not as smooth as they claim, so I don't remove it very often. The other complaint I have is the hydraulic pump has a loud whine to it once the fluid gets hot. I've had it checked twice and both times everything came back normal. This tractor has lots of power and will do pretty much whatever you ask of it within reason. Overall I am pleased with the tractor and would purchase again. If you get the front loader, get the digging bar to attach to the bucket, very handy!

Pros

  • perfect size for residential use with large lawns
  • lots of power
  • lots of attachment options for this tractor
  • clean cut using 54" mower deck

Cons

  • quick disconnect mower deck
  • hydraulic pump loud

4/5

in 1975 I bought a Deere 210. 10 hp Kohler Eng and 47" deck. I'd still be happily using it, except I moved from 1 acre to 3. Was a 2.5 hr mow. A real chore to convert the overgrown lot to lawn. Looked at a few brands, but really wanted another Deere I thought I'd move to a 5x or 7x series, but Deere ran a 0% w/ cash back, bringing the 1023E into the ballpark. I went with 60" deck, FE loader, ballast box, hitch and haven't looked back. I expected a wider turn, but no - it can turn the same radius that my #smaller# 210 did. I yr old now, with about 65 hrs on it. I love the speed and extra width. Front end loader is very handy too. It does everything I need and more. I would recommend the sub compacts. I'm pleased

Bought my first John Deere this past March.Purchased a 2015 Model 1023E and I am so pleased with the unit! I added the 54inch mower deck with quick connect,and a 5ft. rear blade and rear work light as options.I always bought Cub Cadets and they never last long.This tractor mows better than any Cub that I have owned!

I love my machine. I have a puma 50" snowblower and have no issues blowing snow or wet snow into the woods, it shoots about 8 feet not 20 but enough. I have a pto generator 8kw and works like a charm at full load. I burn 3.2 liters per hour at 2800 rpm which is better than any car on the road at 100km per hour. I've never wished I had a larger machine as of yet and i've moved wet heavy snow, lifted heavy boulders, gravel on my driveway, leveled my driveway, you need a rear ballast box with about 500lbs to really improve traction and pushing power immensely, total different machine with 500 lbs on the back. added led 100 watt lights. great machine. a cab would be nice in the winter living in quebec, but for 5k and chance of breakage of glass in the woods etc...pros and cons. excellent.

I have had the 1023E for about 5 weeks now and have 11 hours on it. It has gotten a good workout this winter as we have had many heavy snowfalls this winter in upstate New York. The tractor is equipped with a snow blower and a 5ft rear blade for winter. Also, a 54 in deck for summer. This tractor is able to move snow with no problems. It has turf tires and does not get stuck or have any traction problems, even without chains or weights. I am very satisfied with it and also would like to give a thumbs up to Hudson River Tractor in Fultonville NY where I purchased it. Great people to deal with and I have recommended them to many. Bottom line: quality product, and an excellent dealer!

Small heavy duty tractor

5/5

I bought my1023E sub-compact over a year ago and now have over a hundred hours on it. I have a front end loader on the tractor. The tractor has plenty of power to do the jobs on my property. The tractor is very maneuverable and handles well. Tractor operates well in the snow. Only issue I have had with the tractor was when the hydraulic filter clogged up. JD fixed it no problem under warranty. I would recommend this tractor.

Pros

  • good quality
  • easy to operate

excellent tractor for outside house work

5/5

I have put almost 60 hours on it since July 2014. That is hours that I was able to keep off of a much larger and much more expensive tractor. It is very maneuverable, quick and easy to operate. I wish I had bought one of these years ago. I wouldn't need to replace $3000 worth of tires on my other tractor. I have a couple of small issues: 1. I keep confusing the handle of my coffee cup with the 3 point lift control. The cup holder is perfect- move the 3 point lift control. 2. The transmission control lever keeps hooking my coat, when I get off the tractor- shuts the engine off, nice safety feature--but.

Pros

  • can be hauled in the back of a full sized pickup.

Cons

  • i had to fix a fuel leak

Best Bang for your Buck

5/5

I'm a Heavy Equipment Operator, I use a John Deere 772G almost everyday so I know a thing or two about how a machine should work, the 1023e I bought is the best small tractor you can get on the market today! it might cost a couple of extra bucks for it but overall you won't get a better tractor anywhere, mine has the 260 back hoe and a scraper box and nothing has stopped it, I've dug out tree stumps and plowed snow and all kinds of stuff with this little unit, it just keeps going and you can't hurt it, Nothing runs like a Deere!

Pros

  • good on fuel
  • great price
  • easy to use

Thank You John Deere

5/5

This is my second John Deere Tractor. I bought this tractor for its many uses. I had to spread gravel for a double car garage and do alot of landscaping for our new home. What a back saver. We got alot of snow in 2014 and its not over yet. I have a long driveway and the tractor worked like a charm removing the snow. We also used it for planting fruit trees in our back yard. I am planning on purchasing the mower deck. I would recommend this to every person that owns a home with 1 or more acres.

Pros

  • great tractor

Handles the Job of the Semi-Rural Homeowner

5/5

Had the 1023e for a year now, with the detachable front-end loader, 60" deck and ballast box. Mow over 6 acres of grass, moved fallen trees out of the way by pushing with the bucket, installed a new 400 ft. gravel driveway to an outbuilding for haystorage and used the bucket to remove 36" of snow in the driveway and clean out stalls for three horses. This has been a great tractor combination which has easily handled all of my needs. Hydraulic hoses are easy to attach and remove on the connection plate. There is really not too much difference in HP size between the 1023 and the 1025, but saved quite a few dollars by not buying the larger model with the bells and whistles. Looking to purchase the backhoe attachment now. This is a great tractor for a horse owner with just a few horses on the property.

Pros

  • easy to maneuver in a small barn
  • tight turning radius

Cons

Moving Snow

5/5

I traded up from an X300 to the 1023. I have 550 feet of paved driveway. With the X300 I had the blower attachment for removing snow and for the 1023 I purchased the plow (and I have the bucket also). We just had 3 feet of snow dumped on us and I can't believe how great the unit performed. I have turf tires with no chains and never get stuck. I run her in 4x4 all winter and it has never failed, I do have to take my time with the heavy wet snow, but I prefer plowing that stuff then trying to blow it. I did like the x300 for cutting the lawn, did a better job then the 1023, but you wouldn't be able to tell once its cut.

Great Tractor

5/5

I wish I would have bought it sooner. As I get older I have found the need to take it easy on my back and this tractor has been the answer, it does it all. We have had two snow falls and I have a very long drive way and we are on a private road. I cleared the snow from both the driveway and the private road and the 1023E didn't even skip a beat no issue what so ever plenty of power. I have the front end loader and living in the woods I have to clean up fallen trees and this tractor has been a blessing as far as my back is concerned. John Deere made in America, I highly recommend it..

1023 compact tractor

3/5

works great except for snow blower. Not enough hp on pto to do a good job. Auto connect deck works well when everything is just right. If you want it for snow blowing then go to the 26 hp model

Great Tractor and great features

Great buy and great tractor. Easy to use attachments and take on and off . I use it from mowing the yard , cleaning out the chicken house with the front end loader, to push snow with front blade. Should have bought it a long time ago.

Very easy to change attachments.

5/5

I have 5 acres that I mow and landscape. The front loader bucket has made hauling of rock, mulch, limbs and debris as easy as I could hope for. Only way it could be easier is for someone else to do it for me. Very impressed with the quality of the cut with the 60 inch deck. My property has hills, gullies and quite a few trees to mow around and the 4-wheel drive and power steering make it a breeze to handle. Switching between attachments takes only a few minutes and NO tools. This is an excellent all-purpose tractor.

I bought this tractor a year ago and I have been impressed since day one. I have over an acre with a steep hill in the back. I have a front end loader, 60 inch mower deck and a 4 foot box blade. The tractor hauls dirt, rock or whatever easily. Great tractor and I look forward to many years of service.

Pros

  • great power and cuts great

Perfect for Acreage or Hobby Farm

4/5

I have had my 1023E for two years now and for what I need, it is perfect. I haul small boulders out of the fields, carry 8' logs out of the timber to be milled, till food plots for hunting and clear snow from my half mile lane in the wintertime with it. It has not ever failed to meet my expectations once. It does not have the power of the larger models, but it does not use the amount of fuel the larger tractors do either. Planning on getting the mower deck, snow blower and possibly the back hoe for it next.
