The 2025R and 2032R hydrostatic (HST) Tractors feature a foot-controlled hydrostatic transmission.
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.
Transmission has two speeds - hi and lo range.
Kanzaki® HST transmission is used for reliable operation.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 transmission, gear reduction axle, and clutch.3) Pressure side filtration allows using a finer mesh filter (10 micron) than suction filtration systems used on many competitive tractors.4) Charge pump used to deliver oil to transmission (some competitive tractors use one pump for transmission and hydraulics).5) Oil cooler cools transmission oil for longer transmission life.

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 designed to meet the ASAE Category 1 Standard S278.6 for quick-attach hitches.
NOTE: In the above picture with the rotary cutter, the bushing set BW15056 is shown. These bushings allow the hooks on the iMatch and the pins on the rotary cutter 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).
iMatch AutoHitch is the next generation of the successful iMatch Quick-Hitch that allows operators to hook up the PTO shaft of certain PTO-driven implements. This revolutionary system is the first of its kind, allowing the operator to change from a compatible rotary cutter to a compatible rotary tiller without leaving the seat of the tractor.
John Deere continues to lead the way with innovative designs that ensure operators can quickly and easily change implements and attachments on the compact utility tractors with no tools and little experience needed.

Oil leak at rear of tractor.
Loader leaks down quickly! From a height of 41" the bucket is on the the ground in 6 minutes.
Raising the 3 point lever causes engine to labor. Will also cause independent mid hydraulics to raise by itself.
Loader bucket is difficult to put on. Pallet forks fits perfectly as does my son's bucket from his 1025r
Tractor was delivered with nuts and bolts loose and some pins missing.
It you contact service is always 2 to 3 weeks before we can work on it. Yet they delivered it in that condition.

doing various jobs around my 3 acres, i find this 2025 a nice size tractor. i have the loader and the oh so convenient backhoe attached fulltime. i find myself using the backhoe more. yes, you can stall it if you try grabbing more than its meant for. but just know the limitations of this size tractor and you can flogg it all day long and get a lot done without breaking a sweat. i just dont want a huge tractor. been there done that. if i trade in a few years i most likely will stay with J D. and move up to 2032 for that little extra asskick. otherwise it will be the same. such a good product. i used to be a design engineer for Cat and we always had to watch out for J D outdoing us for durability. J D is a good value for the money.

I use have 350 hours on a 2025 from 2014. Mow, bushhog, load and grade gravel road. It has served me well. I keep in garage and have no issues with rust. Still looks great. If I got a new one I would get a bigger one I think. You can never have too much tractor.

Bought this tractor 3 years ago to manage farming one acre and mowing several acres of rough field. I've beat the heck out of it with no problems and it continues to perform well. It has excellent 4WD and is capable of most small tractor duties. The front loader has been a life saver in preparing our dirt road annually.
I was raised on a Texas Cotton farm and ran BIG Deere stuff (200-300HP tractors)all my youth years. Grew up moved to town only to find I really missed the country. Bought a small piece of land (30 acres)and needed a small tractor to work it. Purchased a 2025r with a front end loader, 48" Brush bull shredder and box blade. This little tractor is a beast! I dug a 20x40' pit 6' deep in near solid rock with the front end loader and teeth down on the box blade. I would break up the rock with a hand jack hammer into car hood or so size pieces and haul em out. I was VERY surprised how much power this tractor has and how much you can push in 4 wheel drive. The 48" brush bull with swinging hammer blades will mow ANYTHING smaller than 1.5" in diameter, Our place WAS covered in heavy thick central Texas Brush and Acasia bushes. This setup will mow em down flat in one slow pass. Prickly pear cactus is no problem either. I purchased a Frontier brand 54" rock bucket later that allows you to grub Cactus and move softball and bigger size rock with ease while letting the dirt fall through the "teeth". I just bought a 62D belly mower but have not used it yet as it id Jan 2nd as I type this review. I would highly recommend this tractor. I would say to any owner to put some good tire sealant in the tires as they will be flat if you run them in Mesquite or Cactus much. The tires are sorta thin IMO. Having said that I beat on mine pretty hard in sharp rock under heavy loads and haven tore a tire up yet...

I ordered a 2025R with backhoe and bucket and a 54 inch mower deck. I have had the backhoe rebuilt after a hour of use do to excessive leak down. I would disconnect it and it would just bleed off to the ground making it hard to reconnect even if I tried right after I took it off. The backhoe has no power and will not dig through the smallest roots. Tractor did not have the power to back up a slight incline with a full bucket of topsoil just wouldn't move. The drive on and off mower did not work as advertised when the John Deere mechanic was showing me how to use it the mower caught the bucket stand and bent a number of brackets up front. The neutral safety switch has no light and is hard to get to engage half the time the tractor is killed when you get off when you think you have it engaged.

I use this for Grinding Stumps, and other general tractor work. Traded in my 1025R for this one. It is a very great up-grade. Heavier and sturdier, which is what I needed.

I purchased John Deere 2025R. I carefully reviewed and looked at the 1025R. And must admit i was impressed. Nice little tractor. Loader, backhoe, mower I thought wow what more could you ask for. Then I reviewed and looked at the 2025R. Larger tires, more lift capacity on loader and stronger hoe. I wanted a tractor that could do it all and the 2025R was the one for me. I like the larger tires more stability less tipsy when going though woods to reach fields where I do food plots for deer. I purchased mine with the 130H loader(Quick Attach) and 270A backhoe. (Quick Attach) I LOVE this tractor. I have a 3 point 5 ' finish mower and a 5' brush hog and it handles them with ease. The backhoe has great power and you don't have to take off 3 point to install it. The 3 point is needed to hook it up. That's another key feature over the 1025R. I have nothing against the 1025R it is a bit more fancy nicer seat 12volt outlet storage compartment but the 2025R is more of a work tractor and all those extras could be added if you feel there necessary well worth the extra $$$$. For better lift and stability. I hope this helps anyone that's stuck between the 1025R and the 2025R like I was. But if your still not sure. I never heard anyone say I wish I Bought a smaller tractor.

Owned a 1023E and traded up to the 2025r and it was a very good move. This tractor is the all around package. Small enough to cut grass with, but packs enough hydraulic and PTO power to do most anything I need it todo, from grading, rotary mowing, and seeding. Only found one thing I am a little disappointed with and that is what you have to go through to get to the main drive shaft front U joint grease fitting up by the engine. Wish they would have put the access panel through the lower dash pane, so you didn't have to loosen the whole dash to move it out of the way to get to it, but that is the only thing I have found that i don't care for. I defiantly give this tractor an A+. Great little machine.

With 60 hours on my new 2025R I was mowing a pasture with a flail mower on the rear when things went wrong. No belly mower was mounted underneath, and Deere for whatever reason does not install a guard to shield the 4' long propeller shaft that extends from the transmission to the front axle. Grass and weeds wrapped around the shaft building up the diameter until clearance around the shaft was gone. At that point the side pressure snapped off the splined stub that sticks out the front of the transmission where the shaft connects. It's a major repair which fortunately was covered by warranty. But there's still nothing to protect the shaft from this happening again. IMO, this is a serious oversight on Deere's part. What am I supposed to do now, install a mirror so I can keep track of it from the driver's seat?
If not for the fact that I own other JD equipment that has served well my rating would not have been as generous.
