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.

One or two 23-kg (50-lb) cast-iron weights may be installed on each rear wheel to provide extra traction and stability.

  • Made of durable cast iron and painted John Deere yellow
  • May be installed with wheel in either the narrow or wide position
  • To stack the weights and install two on a wheel, two 1/2x8-in. bolts are required per wheel (not furnished)

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

Pros

  • nothing runs like a deer

Cons

  • upsets my neighbors that it's too cool

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

Solid machine for the $

5/5

So I've had the 1023E for a year now. Very impressed with the engineering of the drive over deck and quick attach bucket. I have mowed, pulled shrubs, moved mulch and even topsoil with ease. If you can afford however the 1025R adds aux lighting and a suspension seat, both of which I wish I had.

Pros

  • ease of use

Cons

  • toolbox is a joke

Needed one years ago!

5/5

I bought this tractor after talking to my local JD dealer. He was knowlagable and honest. After questioning me about my uses he recomend the 1023e. And with endless well built implaments from Deere and Frontier this little tractor is unstoppable! I pull wood, back blade brush and level new road beds, push snow, mow, broadcast spread lime/fertilizer, you name it. The 1023e will really suprise you on how easy it operates and what it will do! I've operated loads of heavy equment so I feel like I'm quailifed to say this little tractor is a great machine! Thanks Meade Tractor and John Deere for making my chores so much easier!

Pros

  • endless uses for its size
  • well built

Cons

  • wished it had the position control on the draft

small tractor big results

5/5

I worried when I bought this tractor if I could justify the cost and if I really would utilize the loader. I purchased a mower, loader, bush hog and snow blower for my 1023. A year later the answer to was it worth it? You bet it was! We have about 3 acres and a third of it is lawn. The mower cuts beautifully, the snow blower here in coastal Maine is a must have ( I am out there pulling my neighbors truck out of the ditch in a snow storm). With my loader I am moving logs, mulch, loam, gravel, shrubs, trees, pulling posts...the list is endless. Switching attachments was probably the most challenging aspect of the machine but a year in I have manged to go through the cycle without any calls to the dealer and the changes go pretty smoothly.

Ive had mine now for 10 months love it

5/5

Yes it has its limitations but i knew that going in. It has done everything that i have asked it to do. Moved 48 tons of ball field dirt. Mowed thigh high grass. Graded, pushed, dug. The wife loves it around the yard. Very easy to use and holds way more than a wheel barrow.

Rear cutter

2/5

The JD promo department make it look very easy to remove and attach accessories like the brush cutter.....the opposite is quite true spent an half an hour or more to get it on and to get the drive shaft attached.....you engineers need to go back to the drawing board.....

Lots of Uses

4/5

I've had this 1023e for about a year now and it's been used for grading, mowing, moving hay bales (5 ft round), spreading fertilizer, trenching, tilling, discing, planting, and a bunch of other things. I bought an Artillian fork set attachment and their trencher attachment, both of which worked well on the front loader. Low fuel consumption, easy starting, and easy controls, plus quick-attach systems are all big pluses.

Pros

  • good power
  • easy to change attachments
  • relatively quiet

Cons

  • rear lights have been knocked off numerous times
  • pretty tight fit for anyone over 6 ft tall
  • needs led lighting

No Regrets

5/5

I traded an equally powered Kubota BX series due to dealer issues for this tractor. Out of the gate, the 1023e has more power than my Kubota. I have been plowing snow with a 66 inch snow pusher; and snow a foot deep doesn't bog the tractor down one bit. I was skeptical about the auto-attach mower deck, and H120 easy park loader, but refreshingly both work as advertised with no effort. { I will not miss laying on the ground pushing and pulling the 300lb mower deck trying to align the driveshaft splines on my old Kubota}. The 1023e is fuel efficient, and has power to spare. The fit in finish on delivery was excellent, and I found the manuals easy to follow. If you are looking for an all around workhorse for your acreage, or small farm, you can't go wrong with the 1023e.

Pros

  • huge return on the investment
  • extremely powerful yet fuel efficient
  • fit and finish
  • endless supply of attachments available

Cons

  • i did not buy one sooner

Great tractor for 4 acres or less.

5/5

Bought a 1023E for my 2 acre home. Best investment I could have made. I bought mine with a bucket, rear blade and 54" quick release mower deck. The lot needed work, with this little work horse it took no time to level and improve it. Easy to use, powerful for it's size, which makes it just right to fit in the barn and get around tight spots. Unfortunately, too many neighbors are jealous and want to borrow it. It even came in very useful for unloading some heavy equipment (400+ lbs) from my truck recently. Much better than buying a lawn mower and trying to load it up with accesories, this gem is designed to work with buckets and blades.

Pros

  • easy to get on/off of.
  • nice solid hand holds on fenders
  • quick release deck - sweet!
  • digital dash w/hour meter

Cons

  • air filter is a pain to service.
  • neighbors want to borrow it.
