    Yanmar TNV Series engine offers these features:
    • Economical for good cooling and long life
    • Isolated engine provides reduced vibration and noise for the operator; indirect fuel injection uses a precombustion chamber to give the engine a smooth and quiet operation; aluminum-alloy piston with built-in steel struts are lightweight to reduce connection rod bearing loads and provide good heat transfer characteristics
      • Design permits tighter tolerances and neutralizes expansion of the piston, thereby reducing blow-by gas and less noise from the piston slap
      • Higher top rings on the piston and a thinner head gasket greatly reduces the volume of unburned waste gases and increases combustion efficiency
    • Timing-gear teeth have a designed roll-off profile giving almost no clash, no noise, and no backlash
    • High-torque reserve provides plenty of power under heavy load, yet retains excellent fuel economy
    • Easy access to engine check and fill points on the right-hand side of the tractor by removing the side panels
    • Fuel filter with replaceable element
    • Full-pressure lubrication system provides filtered oil under pressure to all vital engine parts
    • Glow plugs provide quick starts in temperatures down to -18°C (0°F) (Optional engine coolant heater attachment will assist starting under more extreme conditions.)
    • Auto-bleed fuel system means there is no special bleeding required if the tractor runs out of fuel; this system will self-prime the injection pump, lines, and injectors, providing fast fuel recovery
    • Key start and shut off eliminates fuel shut-off knob
    • Electric solenoid shuts fuel supply off immediately when key is turned off
    • See-through coolant recovery tank permits operator to check coolant level without removing radiator cap
    • Dry-type air cleaner with safety element keeps dirt and other contaminants out of the engine
      • Safety element (second filter) will protect engine if primary filter would develop a leak
      • Protects engine when servicing primary filter
    • Air filter restriction indicator is standard equipment on the 2025R Tractor
    • Sealed-radiator compartment keeps trash and debris on outside of hood
    • Horizontal exhaust discharges fumes away from the operator station, reducing noise and improving operator visibility and comfort

    Yanmar is a trademark of Yanmar Company Limited.

  • Implement compounding improves efficiency

    • Loader, mid-mower, and a variety of rear hitch implements can be attached to the tractor at the same time
    • Optional premium independent mid lift system operates independent of the rear 3-point hitch. This gives the operator the flexibility to leave the mid mower attached when completing other tasks.

  • Optional cab offers protection from elements

    The Mauser cab offers protection from the elements and expands the versatility of 2025R Tractors to perform in all climates.

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

  • Easy-to-use hydrostatic transmission (HST) increases efficiency

    The 2R Series are equipped 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
      • If the range lever is in gear when the key is turned to the start position, the instrument panel instructs the operator to shift to neutral
    • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat and the forward/reverse pedals are depressed

    Transmission has two speeds - hi and lo range.

    • The range lever is located next to the seat, conveniently within reach of the operator
    • All tasks can be performed using two ranges on the 2025R which means less shifting throughout the day

    Durability features include:

    1. Large forged one-piece trunnion shaft with larger support bearings that reduce vibration and noise
    2. Innovative transaxle combines an HST, gear reduction axle, and clutch
    3. Pressure side filtration allows the use of a fine-mesh filter
    4. One pump to supply charge pressure and implement A flow divider splits the flow to various circuits throughout the tractor.
    5. The transaxle has an oil cooler which provides improved hydraulic cooling performance

Love the 2025R!

5/5

Quick history - in 1975 I bought a JD210 - 10hp with 47" deck. Started every time I turned the key. In 2015 went from 1 acre to 3, so I picked up a 1023E. It was nice, but I decided a bit more clearance and wheel base might improve ride, so Nov 2019 traded for 2025R. Love the loader, more relative comfort of ride and seat.

2014 2025R

5/5

Tractor gets used by everyone in the family. To give you an Idea of to what extent let me just list the attachments we have. Mid mower with mulch kit ( wouldn't mow with out the mulch kit again, such a better cut. ) front loader, tiller, flail mower, bushhog mower, 2 bottom plow, potato plow, 6' disc, dry spreader, reese hitch for 3pt, back hoe, and quick hitch. So you can see why its so important that you can have multiple attachments on the tractor and operate them individually. The ease of changing attachments is KEY. I have installed and removed every single attachment I have in less than 30 min. just to win a bet with someone that didnt buy a DEERE. With 25 acres to tend you shuffle alot of equipment off and on in a day. Love the tractor.

A must have for small acres

5/5

I’ve owned my 2025r since 2/14/20 and now have almost 100 hours on it and to be honest I wished I’d bought it sooner. I have 3 acres that I maintain plus I use it to help maintain the adjoining woods of my neighbors. This tractor does it all! I use it to mow, spread fertilizer/lime for the several neighbors with my ss1023b, drag/haul firewood, push snow, heck, I even used it to remove my old asphalt driveway! Now it’s not a D-6 or a JD 750 mind you, but it’s still remarkable for its size! And I’ve run heavy equipment for several years! It’s definitely a multitasker! No problems with it so far either. My John Deere Dealer ( Meade in Wytheville,Va) has also been very helpful with implement decisions and getting the best deals and if needed, financing. I always owned red but now I believe Green will be my favorite color!

Does everything I put it through when it's not at dealership for repairs

3/5

Traded our 2012. 23hp sub compact tractor on a 2020 2025R this February. Put 24hrs on it managing 3acres and a large garden. Noticed oil under tractor after every mowing. Dealer has had 2 times now attempting to fix the mid pto seal. Each repair keeps leaking. The second time they have had over 4weeks trying to repair and and now we are being told John Deere is replacing the transmission. Very frustrating considering only 24hrs on the machine. I was raised on a farm with John Deere and work as a Heavy Equipment Operator and still love John Deere. Just hope they get it figured out. Hats off to dealer as they have been on top of things even going as far as making sure we have a mower when needed. Guess it's my turn to draw the short straw.

lOVE MY 2025R

5/5

I PURCHASED THE 2025R ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO AND HAVE ABOUT 45 HOURS ON IT NOW. IT HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY THE BEST SO FAR. I USE IT FOR BUSHHOGGING, GRASS CUTTING, MOVING DIRT, AND MANY OTHER LITTLE THINGS AROUND MY PROPERTY. I HAVE ABOUT 6 ACRES AND BUSH HOG ABOUT 4 ACRES AND THEN USE THE MID MOUNT MOWER FOR THE OTHER 2. IT GETS THE JOB DONE. I DON'T REGRET THIS PURCHASE AT ALL.
