    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.

    • 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.

    • The mower deck height-adjustment knob allows the mower height to be adjusted from 2.5 cm to 10.2 cm (1 in. to 4 in.).
    • A spring-loaded detent ensures the height position is locked into place.
    • The transport lock position holds the deck 10.2-cm (4-in.) from the ground, so that rear implements can be used separately while the mower is installed.
    Beverage holder and additional storage

    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.

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

Best purchase I have made in a long time!


Great piece of equipment! The bush hog, box blade, and loader bucket sure make my life a whole lot easier in keeping up my small farm. I really don't know how I have gotten by without it.

Love it!


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


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.

Tough little tractor


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.....
