  • Standard LED Headlights and Fender Lights
  • Premium Operator Station with Deluxe Seat Suspension and Armrests
  • AutoConnect™ Mid-Mower Deck can be Installed or Removed in Less than 5 Minutes

Spend more time working and less time switching equipment with easy implement swaps

John Deere 1025R Compact Tractor Attachments1 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 hook up 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.

Quickly and easily change speed and direction with Twin Touch™ foot controls and hydrostatic transmission (HST)

John Deere 1025R Compact Tractor TransmissionThe 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.

Excellent maneuverability and easy operation with standard four-wheel drive (4WD) and power steering

John Deere 1025R Compact Tractor SteeringBoth 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 57-inch (144.8-cm) wheelbase and 47 inch (119.4 cm) overall width give 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.

Comfortable and convenient open operator station

John Deere 1025R Compact Tractor Operator StationThe 1025R open operator station is designed for greater comfort and increased visibility.

  • 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.
  • Tilt steering lets you keep your arms in a natural position to reduce fatigue.
  • Deluxe suspension seat has moveable armrests and provides great back support.
  • Easy access toolbox puts common tools within quick reach.
  • Standard 12-V outlet for convenient charging of electronics.
  • 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 is standard equipment on the 1025R.
  • 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 light-emitting diode (LED) headlights.
    • Two amber flashing warning/hazard lights mounted on the side of the ROPS with reflectors.
    • Two LED fender work lights.
    • Additional front and rear light kits are available.

Updated instrumentation is standard equipment for operating convenience and confidence. Instrumentation includes:

  • Tach/hour meter.
  • Oil pressure indicator light.
  • Alternator indicator light.
  • Flashing warning lights.
  • Coolant temperature light.

The thick, soft padding on this seat provides a smooth and comfortable ride. A high, scalloped back makes it easier for the operator to turn to view rear implements. The embroidered logo and premium vinyl not only provide an easy-to-clean surface, but also a well-polished design.

  • Seat adjusts fore/aft for operator convenience.
  • Seat flips forward for protection from the elements.
  • High seat back and armrests are in base equipment and allow for more comfortable operation.
  • Retractable seat belt feature prevents the seat belt from becoming tangled in the seat suspension and controls.

The mower deck height adjustment knob allows the mower height to be adjusted from 1 inch to 4 inches (2.5 cm to 10.2 cm).

  • A spring-loaded detent ensures the height position is locked into place.
  • The transport lock position holds the deck 4 inches (10.2 cm) from the ground, so that rear implements can be used separately while the mower is installed.

The 1 Family Tractor features a rear installed toolbox for easy accessibility and convenience.

The beverage holder is contour-molded and seated into the fender for a clean look. It is conveniently located and dual-sized to accommodate many containers. The placement of the cup is within arm’s reach.

The 1025R Tractor features a 12-V outlet conveniently located on the right-hand side fender for easy access. The placement of the 12-V outlet is within arm’s reach.

The fuel fill location is conveniently accessible on the left-hand side fender. The fuel gauge is located in close proximity to make the fuel refilling process easier.

The 1 Family Tractors feature tilt steering for easy maneuverability and convenience.

Get year-round performance with the optional cab

John Deere 1025R Compact Tractor CabThe John Deere 1R cab is about comfort, security, and helping you get year-round performance. The cab offers protection from the elements to expand the versatility of 1025R Tractors to perform in all climates.

  • Sound damping system for quiet, peace-of-mind operation.
  • Heated cab keeps you warm in colder months.
  • Removable doors and front and rear windows that open nearly 90° provide a cooler work environment in warmer months.
  • Excellent visibility to your surroundings with the full glass doors.
  • Compatible with all tractor implements, except the 260B Backhoe.

Flexibility in operation with multiple mid-mower lift system options

John Deere 1025R Compact Tractor Mower LiftThe standard mechanical mower lift system moves the mower in conjunction with the rear implements and comes factory-installed on 1 Family Tractors.

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.

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.
