John Deere 2 Series compact tractors are fit to manage a range of tasks from mowing and clearing brush to digging trenches. You’ll find the three available models in this category offer great durability and muscle, with engines that can reach 24.2 – 36.7 hp, a hydrostatic transmission, a loader lift capacity that caps out at 1,120 lb., 4WD and a selection of mowing decks at up to 72 inches in width. These compact tractors are heavier than the sub-compacts in the 1 Series, offering even more stability while still providing top of the line comfort and easy operation. 2 Series tractors come with productivity boosting and convenience-focused features like TwinTouch™ forward and reverse pedals as well as CommandCut™ for easy, in-seat cutting height changes among many others.

Learned By Doing.

Do you have any “Pro Tips” or tricks you’ve learned from your experience with the equipment you’d like to share with others?

Mike: Don’t keep accessory alligator clamps connected to the battery when not in use, like for a pull behind sprayer. It corrodes the battery terminals. Disconnect the clamps after each use.

Would you recommend buying equipment from True North Equipment to others?

Mike: Yes, I already have.
