The engine uses the latest technologies to optimize fuel economy, improve control and accuracy, and reduce environmental impact. The common rail system (CRS) optimizes fuel economy and reduces operating costs*. High-pressure injection atomizes fuel into finer particles which burn more completely. It results in improved fuel economy and a lower cost of operation.

The electronic control unit (ECU) provides optimum fuel control and accuracy. ECU monitors and controls the engine. It continuously monitors engine conditions and adjusts the fuel delivery accordingly to ensure optimum performance and emissions.

The engine comes with an after-treatment system. The system operates automatically. The exhaust filter consists of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which captures particulate matter (PM) contained in the exhaust gas. Using a natural cleaning process, most of the PM trapped in the exhaust filter is eliminated by the heat of the exhaust stream generated by normal use. In situations of low temperature, engine speed, or load factor, an active cleaning cycle is initiated. In this cleaning cycle, the exhaust gas temperature is raised by injecting additional fuel during the exhaust stroke of normal vehicle operation to the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC).

After many hours of use, the exhaust filter may require an ash removal service.

 

*NOTE: As compared to engines not using CRS technology.

 

DPF cleaning

Depending on the load that the tractor is under, as well as ambient temperature, humidity, and engine speed, the DPF may build up with particulate matter, thus requiring cleaning. Filter cleaning is determined by one of three factors:

  • A prescribed time-based estimation of needed filter cleaning
  • DOC/DPF pressure sensors
  • A particulate matter buildup estimation based on load conditions

Once one of the three conditions has been met, filter cleaning will occur.

There are three different types of filter cleaning processes:

  • Passive filter cleaning
  • Active filter cleaning
  • Parked filter cleaning

Passive filter cleaning

Passive filter cleaning occurs naturally when the engine is generating enough heat to oxidize particulate matter. This automatic process occurs continuously during normal operating conditions. No tractor icons or symbols appear on the display during passive filter cleaning.

NOTE:  Passive filter cleaning requires no operator involvement, and there is no interruption to tractor operation.


Active filter cleaning

If conditions (temperature, load, or speed) for passive filter cleaning cannot be achieved, then PM is removed using active filter cleaner.

To achieve the required conditions, exhaust temperature management (ETM) manages the initiation and duration of active filter cleaning. ETM can adjust numerous engine parameters and/or inject a small quantity of fuel into the exhaust stream for a short duration. The fuel turns to vapor and chemically reacts with the catalysts in the DOC to create heat to oxidize the PM.

It is important to note that at no time is the fuel in the DOC/DPF ignited, and there is no flame within the DOC/DPF.

Like passive filter cleaning, active filter cleaning requires no operator involvement, and there is no interruption to tractor operation.

Parked filter cleaning

In some instances where passive and active filter cleaning have not fully cleaned the PM from the system, a parked filter cleaning may need to take place. In general, the only time a parked filter cleaning will need to occur is when automatic filter cleaning has been disabled for an extended period of time and multiple warnings to engage filter cleaning were ignored or if the tractor has been used during light load conditions. Additionally, when the automatic filter cleaning process has been deliberately interrupted multiple times, or if active filter cleaning has failed numerous times due to a failed component, a parked filter cleaning may be requested. In these rare instances the operator will have to park the tractor and start the filter cleaning process.

The parked filter cleaning process needs to be activated based on usage and operation of the tractor. The process will take approximately 30 minutes.  See the operator's manual for more details.

This system constantly monitors the soot level of the tractor; making sure the tractor is always in peak performance condition.  This ensures high performance at all times.

NOTE: Number of hours since last regeneration and soot level percentage are viewable on LCD display.

Key features of the engine are:
  • Economical cast-in-block cylinder design for good cooling and long life
  • Direct fuel injection
    • Improves starting
    • Injects fuel directly on top of pistons for more efficient combustion
    • Develops more horsepower per liter (gallon) of fuel than indirect injection engines
  • Aluminum alloy pistons are lightweight to reduce connecting rod bearing loads and provide good heat transfer characteristics
    • Design permits tighter tolerances and neutralizes expansion of the piston, which reduces blow-by and noise from piston slap
    • Top rings are higher on the piston and a thinner head gasket is used to greatly reduce the volume of unburned waste gases and increase combustion efficiency
  • Timing gears and injector drive gears have a helical profile to reduce engine noise
  • Auto-bleed fuel system
    • There is no need to prime the system if the tractor runs out of fuel
    • The system will self-prime the injection pump, lines, and injectors, providing fast fuel recovery for easier starting
  • High-capacity lubrication system provides filtered oil, under pressure, to all engine bearings for long life 
  • Key start and shutoff eliminates fuel shutoff knob
    • Electric solenoid shuts fuel supply off immediately when key is turned off, which replaces the need to pull a fuel shutoff lever like many older tractors
  • Fuel filter with replaceable element
  • Water separator with additional replaceable filter element
  • See-through coolant recovery tank permits operator to check coolant level without removing radiator cap

The 3E Tractors are available with a two-range hydrostatic transmission (HST) incorporated in a die-cast aluminum transmission case. Fluid under pressure transmits engine power to the drive wheels via a closed-loop pump and motor arrangement. Infinite ground speeds allow the operator to match the speed of the tractor to the job.

  • No clutching for fast and easy direction changes
  • Twin Touch™ foot pedals for quick and easy forward/reverse operation
  • Transmission oil cooler cools transmission oil for longer transmission life

Safety features of the HST include:

  • The tractor will only start with the range lever in neutral
  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat unless the range lever is in neutral
  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat and the power take-off (PTO) is engaged
Twin Touch™ foot controls
Twin Touch foot controls Twin Touch foot controls

Key John Deere advantage - John Deere's Twin Touch foot controls offer several key advantages over competitive HST models tractors.

  • Some competitive hydrostatic tractors use a treadle pedal (toe-heel) design foot control for operation of the HST
    • Requires the operator to use both toe and heel to change direction, resulting in increased operator fatigue
    • The Twin Touch configuration also makes it easier to "inch" the tractor forward or rearward (i.e. when attaching to implements)
Optional cruise control
Optional cruise control Optional cruise control

The 3E Series Tractors can be outfitted with an optional cruise control switch that is installed on the right-hand control console. This gives operators the ability to keep a constant speed when in transportation, field mowing, or other applications where extended use of the transmission is needed. This kit is very quick and easy to install for those who desire this feature.

3E Series Tractors can be equipped with a field-installed rear hydraulic remote kit, providing two additional hydraulic spools on the back of the tractor. This kit can be field installed on a tractor with a loader or without a loader.

 

The functions are completely separate from the loader. These rear remotes can be hooked up to a wide variety of implements and attachments such as follows:

  • Hydraulically angled blade
  • Hydraulically controlled chute/spout on a 3-point hitch-mounted snow blower
  • Hydraulic scarifiers on a box blade
  • Many other hydraulic rear attachments

This versatile kit gives 3E Series Tractor operators the options they desire for putting their tractors into a wide range of tasks.

 

The first spool is equipped with a float position, giving the operator the ability to contour the landscape and improve the final grade with certain implements.

 

NOTE: Neither of the spools in this kit are equipped with a detent position; therefore, they should not be hooked up to anything with a motor, as the valve was not designed to be run open. The kit is designed for momentary, on-demand hydraulic flow such as moving a cylinder.

The approximate installation time is 1 hour to 1.5 hours.

One of the greatest operator 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 American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) 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: The bushing set can be seen in the picture above. 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: 1.93-1.95 cm (0.76-0.77 in.)
    • Outside diameter: 3.15-3.18 cm (1.24-1.25 in.)
  • Lower bushings
    • Inside diameter: 2.24-2.26 cm (0.88 to 0.89 in.)
    • Outside diameter: 3.63-3.66 cm (1.43 to 1.44 in.)

Regular service and maintenance are essential to the performance, productivity, and longevity of the tractor.

 

  • Easy access to most regular service points minimizes service time
  • Four quarter turn fasteners allow operators to easily remove the engine side panels without tools to access the engine compartment
     
  • Tractors are equipped with extensive onboard self-diagnostic capabilities and are fully compatible with the John Deere-exclusive Service ADVISOR™ system
  • Hydraulic oil service interval increased to 1200 hours when using Hy-Gard™ products
  • Hydraulic oil filter will need to be changed every 400 hours
  • Fuel tank is located on the rear of the tractor to allow for easy access when fueling
     
  • Gas-lift hood support eliminates the need for a mechanical prop rod.
     
  • Daily service requirements are minimal and simple to accomplish. Most service interval requirements can be performed with a basic understanding of procedures and common tools
Removable side panels (previous model shown) Removable side panels (previous model shown)

All items in the daily service schedule can be performed without the use of tools:

  • Engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant level, and the water separator can be conveniently accessed
  • The engine can be easily accessed by simply raising the hood for more periodic maintenance checks

NOTE: Always refer to the operator’s manual for complete maintenance and service recommendations.

Hydraulics

#

3E Series Tractors can be equipped with a field-installed rear hydraulic remote kit, providing two additional hydraulic spools on the back of the tractor. This kit can be field installed on a tractor with a loader or without a loader.

 

The functions are completely separate from the loader. These rear remotes can be hooked up to a wide variety of implements and attachments such as the following:

  • Hydraulically angled blade
  • Hydraulically controlled chute/spout on a 3-point hitch-mounted snow blower
  • Hydraulic scarifiers on a box blade
  • Many other hydraulic rear attachments

This versatile kit gives 3E Series Tractor operators the options they desire for putting their tractors into a wide range of tasks. The first spool is equipped with a float position, giving the operator the ability to contour the landscape and improve the final grade with certain implements.

 

Please note that neither of the spools in this kit are equipped with a detent position; therefore, they should not be hooked up to anything with a motor, as the valve was not designed to be run open. It is designed for momentary, on-demand hydraulic flow such as moving a cylinder.

The approximate installation time is 1 hour to 1.5 hours.

Power beyond linkagePower beyond linkage

The power beyond kit allows access to pressurized hydraulic oil at the rear of the tractor for operating attachments equipped with an open center control valve, such as a backhoe and log splitter.

Lighting

Rear work lightRear work light

This kit provides light to the rear of the tractor for evening work.

 

For open-station tractors only, this kit contains individual light.

 

Allow 30 minutes to install.

 

NOTE: Kit includes one rear light.

NOTE: Both the rear- and forward-work lights are compatible together and with the light-brush guard kits. The light kit contains a two-to-four pigtail that plugs into the main harness, as if only plugging one set of lights, providing two sets of plugs to use for forward and rear-work lights. The forward light is installed on top of the brush guard, and the rear light is installed inside the ROPS using the bolt holding the light and brush guard on.

NOTE: For 102E3 and 1026R Tractors – kit interference during backhoe operations (mounted inside ROPS) – use LVB25546 forward-light kit as an alternative.

#

The forward-lighting kit provides extra visibility when working in dark conditions. Lights attach to the brush guards located on the rollover protective structure (ROPS). Each kit contains two lights.

 

NOTE: Requires BLV10400 warning light brush guard kit and LVB26026 light kit harness. Not compatible with LVB25547 rear work light kit (1023E).

 Rollover protective structure (ROPS) mounted LED work lights

An optional LED work light kit is available for all open-station compact utility tractors. These lights provide extra visibility when working in dark conditions and have 180-degree rotation to face forward or backward. The kit contains two lights and the mounting hardware required for installation.

This lighting kit is mounted to the warning light brush guard kit, which is mounted to the ROPS and requires attachment BLV10400 for installation.
  
The halogen work light kit attachment is still available (LVB25546).

ROPS warning-light brush guards protect turn signal/warning lights from damage caused by low branches on trees.

Two guards are included in each kit and are for open-operator station (OOS) tractors only.

One of the greatest operator 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 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: All implements (box blades, tillers, rear blades, landscape rakes, etc.) 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 of 0.76 in. to 0.77 in. (19 mm to 20 mm)
    • Outside diameter of 1.24 in. to 1.25 in. (31 mm to 32 mm)
  • Lower bushings
    • Inside diameter of 0.88 in. to 0.89 in. (22 mm to 23 mm)
    • Outside diameter of 1.43 in. to 1.44 in. (36 mm to 37 mm)

Overheats

2/5

I’ve had this tractor about 3 years, I’m a small hobby farm in Kentucky. Heres my experience. My top hole that the center link connects to broke off, the top left corner while drilling fence post. The dealer said warranty wouldn’t cover. Less than a year old!. Second issue it could barely lift a large hay roll after the salesman said it will. Third issue is it OVERHEATS. The radiator gets clogged so easy, even when clean won’t last a work day mid summer, dealer said there’s no fixing it. And I think the hydraulics need to be stronger. Be nice to be able to pull out fence posts

Pros

  • looks nice

Cons

  • to many to list

big Time operator

5/5

I was handed down this sweet piece of machinery over a year ago, and oh boy! It’s a good time. I’ve operated larger JD equipment before, so I wasn’t a 100% sure on this cat when I got it, but after a few uses of mowing, tilling, grading my drive, and endless pushing of snow over the winter, this thing is most definitely a big time operator. 30hp at the pto is more then enough to get me in trouble doing things around log style home. The loader is definitely best and my most us option on the tractor. I’ve dug driveways, snow, hauled fire wood, dirt, and used it as a pool for my son. The forks are also a must have. They make life hay, moving small bails, and other heavy thing you wife expects you lift but you aren’t a giant power lifter or Arnold in his prime. I might also use the forks to make platform for bow target practice, I don’t think JD will endorse that, and that’s all at your own risk.If you got some acres and know need a small tractor, stop being chump and buy this. You’ll like it, I promise.

Pros

  • ease of use
  • 4wd
  • bucket
  • power
  • too many things i could go on and on

Cons

  • i have found any major ones yet

Great Tractor

5/5

I've had this tractor going on 4 years. Honestly, I'm shocked at some of the things my 3038 can do! I own about 10 acres of land - this tractor does the job to keep my place looking great. I've used it for everything; Graded the plot for my house, dug up roots and stumps, landscaping, bush hog - you name it, I've done it. I've only had 1 issue with the tractor that required JD to figure out, and turns out it wasn't something JD couldn't control (mouse ate a wire). Overall, I've been impressed! Just a note for new buyers - I wish I would've bought mine with rear remotes and set up for a grapple. Spend the money now, even if you think you don't need it. I was one of those (save the money) guys - currently doing research to add hydraulic top links / tilt and a grapple to mine (costly). I've run into countless situations where I wish I had both, even though I thought I never would when I bought the tractor.

Great Tractor

5/5

I have owned this tractor for just over a month and cannot say enough good things about it. I have used every attachment on my 10 acres with ease, front loader, rotary cutter, box blade. The ease of use on this tractor is unbelievable. Within a few minutes after taking it off the trailer, I had the feel for every part. I also love the way that JD set everything up for maintenance. Everything is easy to get to and check and if something seems to be difficult, the side panels around the engine come off with no tools required. I have already put about 30 hours on the tractor. Only regret was not purchasing this tractor a year ago when I bought the property.

Pros

  • ease of use
  • sevicability
  • power

Cons

  • havent found one yet

Excellent small farm do-all tractor

5/5

I have put more than 100 hours on this tractor so far. It has performed flawlessly while running the Frontier R2060 rough cutter, Bush hog 60" tiller, and a Howse 5' angle frame disc. The bucket has taken all the abuse I could throw at it too clearing out rocks and digging up stumps from old trees near the house. Next up this winter I will be setting hundreds of new fence posts while I replace or build new nearly 4,000 feet of field fence. It worked all day at our church fall festival pulling the hay ride this year. I have no doubt this tractor will handle the auger with ease. It's an excellent tractor for just about anything you can throw at it on a small farm.

Great all around tractor

5/5

Over my years of aquaculture we used many John Deere tractors both large and small, ranging in horsepower from 40 to 140 horse. Now retired and with small acreage (ten) this tractor has plenty of horse power to do most anything I ask of it. The front end loader only expanded it's many duties around our home. We have owned this tractor and loader now for about six months and as with all the other John Deere products I have owned over the years this one is without a flaw. My local dealer always has any service related parts in stock and always has answers for any questions with any of my other John Deere equipment or attachments for this tractor. We use this tractor to do anything from moving gravel and stone for the drive. We also use this tractor with a rear mounted three point hitch drag blade to keep our driveway in tip top shape. A six foot three point hitch mounted tiller is no problem for this tractor with plenty of power to spare. I should know as I tilled our whole front yard which is well over an acre with no problems. It does everything and anything I ask of it of course within reason of it's size and horsepower. The four wheel drive makes all chores easy even in moist to wet conditions. As always there is no better or no equal to my John Deere equipment. Even my wife enjoys using this tractor and before this she had never operated a tractor.

The 3038E is a Great tractor at a great price!!!

5/5

Bought the tractor a couple of months ago. So far only 25 hrs but it has been awesome. The little turbocharged engine will not bog down I use a 6 foot finish mower 6 foot box blade and 5 foot tiller Wish I could afford the 7 foot tiller and mower because this tractor has plenty power to spare!!!! The loader is good but not too strong. It does a great job but it's just not stout like a commercial machine but with a little hunching and persuasion it will load a heaping bucket and lift it Now for the bad the differential lock is engaged with the same foot pedal as the rear brakes. I despise this. You have to find the "sweet spot "to keep from engaging the brakes too. John Deere should have NEVER done this. I hate it. With that said everything else about this tractor is awesome. My first green machine and it won't be my last!!! Can't wait till I can afford to have my woodsmaxx 9 foot backhoe delivered

Pros

  • horsepower to spare
  • tight turning radius

Cons

  • i hate the diff lock is on rear brake pedal

4/5

I'm not a farmer but we do have a pc of Bama to escape to. At 200 hrs the 3 pt hitch froze up and had to be lubricated....It would not let you have full range of motion...Which brings me to last week...390 hrs. noticed front seal leaking on left side. I'm calling deere today to get advise.....hope its not too $$ . After reading other reviews maybe we... she turned the wheel too much in 4wd with loader full?
