Now farmers, landscape professionals and others can operate the most powerful and the most advanced compact utility tractors in the market, while enjoying state-of-the-art comfort and convenience with the introduction of the all new John Deere 3000 TWENTY Series and 4000 TWENTY Series Cab Tractors in November 2005.

Designed by John Deere, and built in the same factory in Waterloo, Iowa, that manufactures the legendary John Deere agricultural row-crop tractors, these fully integrated cabs offer the ultimate operator experience. The cabs are available on six different models ranging from 33 to 58 gross engine hp in three different configurations: Standard, Deluxe and Air-ride Deluxe. All models offer best-in-class visibility, heating and air conditioning performance as well as the quietest operating environment in a compact utility tractor.

Best of all, the John Deere 3000 TWENTY Series and 4000 TWENTY Series Cab Tractors are competitively priced, making them easier and more affordable to own.

“When John Deere introduced the 3000 TWENTY Series and 4000 TWENTY Series Tractors last year, customers had a machine with the power, versatility, and performance they demanded,” says Sean Sundberg, Brand Manager for the John Deere Compact Utility Tractors. “Now, that level of performance is complemented with the most comfortable, quietest, and easy-to-use cabs available at an attractive price.”

Customers working long days on a tractor are susceptible to discomfort and fatigue, which can result in poor performance and reduced overall productivity. Sundberg says with the array of amenities available on the fully integrated cabs, customers have a mobile office that feels like an executive suite.

All cab models feature an intuitive automotive-like interior and are thoughtfully designed to maximize operator comfort. An unobstructed foot deck allows for comfortable entry, exit, and operation. Cabs are sealed and pressurized to maintain a comfortable dust-free operator environment, and the unique offset cab mounting system provides noise levels up to 10 percent below those of the competition for an ultra-quiet, comfortable ride.

Thanks to state-of-the-art virtual reality design equipment, ergonomics have been optimized to eliminate uncomfortable or awkward bending during operation. The most frequently used controls are conveniently positioned at the operator's fingertips.

And the best-in-class high-performance climate-control system keeps the operator comfortable no matter how intense the elements outside. Additional comfort and convenience features include a deluxe cloth seat with armrests, 12-volt power supply, cell phone holder, dual cup holders, ample storage for compact discs, and much more.

All of the new cab models for the compact utility tractors feature the industry-exclusive John Deere eHydro transmission with patented Twin Touch hydro pedals for unmatched performance and productivity.

All models come standard with four-wheel drive, the patented LoadMatch power management system, and “true speed” cruise control features. Furthermore, the Air-ride Deluxe cab offers the only air-ride seat in its class for the ultimate experience in comfort.

“John Deere left nothing to chance when it came to the design of these fully integrated cabs,” explains Sundberg. “One step into the cab is all it takes to appreciate how the superior visibility, spacious design, and ultra-quiet operation can optimize work performance and your overall operating experience.”

The new cabs are available on the hydrostatic models of the 3000 TWENTY Series and 4000 TWENTY Series Tractors. This includes the 3320, 3520, 3720, 4320, 4520, and 4720 tractors.

The 3000 TWENTY and 4000 TWENTY Series Tractors are backed by John Deere's popular three-year, 2,000-hour limited warranty, two years of full product coverage up to 2,000 hours, and third-year engine and power train coverage up to 2,000 hours. Customer support is offered through the company's national network of servicing dealers, providing for lower maintenance costs and higher trade-in and resale value.
