    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.

  • 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

    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.
  • Quickly and easily change speed and directions with Twin Touch foot controls and Hydrostatic transmission (HST)
    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
  • Comfortable and convenient open operator’s station

    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.

    • 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
      • Additional front- and rear-light kits are available
  • Spend more time working and less time switching equipment with easy implement swaps

    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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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).
