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

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

Narrow overall width allows the JD 1023E Tractor 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 means fewer turns of the steering wheel 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 John Deere 1023E Tractor a
good choice for a variety of tasks; overall tractor weight reduces
ground compaction and makes your machine an excellent mowing tractor.

The power take-off (PTO) is a fully-independent PTO on tractor, allowing
engaging and disengaging of the PTO without stopping movement. This is
important when driving across obstacles such as driveways while mowing.

Two sets of right-hand couplers can operate two hydraulic functions
(such as loader bucket cylinders and boom cylinders).

The right-hand-side mid-mounted couplers are positioned to allow easy
access for hooking and unhooking hydraulic lines.

Large 0.64 cm (1/4-in.) diameter couplers are used to maximize oil flow
to implements.

Hydraulics have excellent feather ability for smooth operation.
