Easy operation four-wheel drive (4WD) and power steering

Both 4WD and power steering are standard equipment on the 1023E. This combination allows for excellent maneuverability and ease of operation of the tractor.

  • Narrow overall width allows the 1023E to work in tight areas where most compact tractors just can't fit, yet the 144.8 cm (57-in.) wheel base and 119.4 cm (47-in.) overall width gives great stability for all type of terrains.
  • Power steering requires less effort than manual steering; especially valuable when mowing around obstacles or when the tractor is used with a front loader.
  • High horsepower-to-weight ratio makes the 1023E a good choice for a variety of tasks; overall tractor weight reduces ground compaction and makes the 1023E an excellent mowing tractor.
  • The power take-off (PTO) on the 1023E is fully independent PTO, allowing engaging and disengaging of the PTO without stopping tractor movement. This is important when driving across obstacles such as driveways while mowing.

Yanmar TNM 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 pre-combustion 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
  • 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
  • Side-screen panels and front-grille screen provide excellent flow of air to the engine compartment
  • Sealed-radiator compartment keeps trash and debris on outside of hood
  • Single-piece side panels can be removed for easy and quick access to the engine
  • Horizontal exhaust discharges fumes away from the operator station, reducing noise and improving operator visibility and comfort

Hydrostatic transmission (HST) with Twin Touch™ foot controls

The 1023E and 1025R Tractors feature a HST.

  • Fluid under pressure transmits engine power to the drive wheels through a hydraulic pump and motor
  • The hydrostatic-drive unit functions both as a clutch and transmission
Twin Touch foot controls Twin Touch foot controls

Twin Touch foot controls allow selecting both speed and direction of travel with a touch of the toe. Ideally suited for jobs where productivity is a must, such as loader or mower applications.

  • Infinite ground speeds, even at full throttle, to match the job
  • No clutching for fast direction changes
  • Faster, easier, and more precise to operate than competitive tractors with treadle pedal design (toe-heel)
  • Provides high torque for start up
  • Reduces power train shock loads
  • Large foot pedals were designed for operator comfort and allow for convenient operation of the tractor
Two-speed transmissionTwo-speed transmission

Transmission has two speeds - Hi and Lo range.

  • The range lever is located next to the seat, conveniently within reach of the operator
  • Lo range allows performing tougher tasks at higher speeds than competitive tractors equipped with a three-range transmission (that is, lo range on three-speed transaxle is slower than lo range on a two-speed transaxle)


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 using a finer-mesh filter (10 micron) than suction filtration systems use on many competitive tractors.
  4. One pump to supply charge pressure and implement flow. 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.
Optional iMatch™ Quick-Hitch feature allows for easy implement hookup

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.)
Easy-open, gas-lift hood
Gas-lift springGas-lift spring
  • The under-hood gas-lift support provides easy one-finger access to the engine compartment and eliminates the need for a mechanical prop rod.
  • This design of the support structure provides excellent rigidity for the hood.
Fast and easy implement changeover
  • Front Quik-Tatch™ hitch makes changing front implements quick and easy
  • All front implements (blade, brooms, and snow blowers) use a common hitch
  • AutoConnect™ mid-mount mower decks, D120 and H120 Loaders, and 260 Backhoe can be taken on or off within 5 minutes, and no tools are necessary
  • Changing rear implements is a snap with the iMatchTM Quick-Hitch, which has three fixed points to back in and pick up a rear implement that is iMatch compatible
  • Rotary cutters and tillers can be installed in no time without leaving the seat of the tractor with the iMatch™ AutoHitch™ system

*Features shown are available with all current model year tractors.

Mower deck lift components
