Yanmar TNV 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 precombustion 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,nonoise,andnobacklash
  • High-torque reserve provides plenty of power under heavy load, yet retains excellent fuel economy
  • Easy access to engine check and fill points on the right-hand side of the tractor by removing the side panels

The optional premium independent lift system has been improved over the current 1 Family system by now allowing the operator to have full control of the mower deck in both the raise and lower positions. When the operator reaches the desired height, the button can be released and the deck will hold its position. This feature reduces the effort required to adjust the height-of-cut (HOC) dial and it also allows for quick height changes on the go.

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.)

Regular service and maintenance are essential to the performance, productivity, and longevity of the tractor.

  • Two quarter-turn fasteners allow operators to easily remove the engine side panels without tools to access to the engine compartment.
Fasteners on the engine side panels Fasteners on the engine side panels
  • The under-hood gas-lift support provides easy access to the engine compartment and eliminates the need for a mechanical prop rod.

  • External hood latch requires no tools and can release using the tractor key.

  • Easy access to regular service points minimizes service time.

  • Daily service checks, such as checking the engine oil or water separator, can be done without opening the hood or removing the tractor side panels.

  • Tractors are equipped with a mechanical air filter restriction indicator that alerts the operator when the air filter needs to be cleaned or changed.

  • All external engine, fuel, and transmission filters are easily accessible.
  • Fuel tank is located on the rear of the tractor to allow for easy access when fueling.

  • The 2025R model includes factory-installed mechanical deck lift components.
  • The addition of these components from the factory significantly reduces the time required to do the initial mower deck installation at the time of purchase.
  • Refer to the mowers and material collection page for more details on mower deck installation and compatibility.
Increased productivity using auto throttle Increased productivity using auto throttle

An optional auto throttle kit is available for the 2025R Tractors. When auto throttle is installed, the engine rpm and transmission speed will increase as the Twin Touch™ pedals are depressed. The harder the hydro pedal is pressed, the more engine speed available. This feature can be beneficial for use in many different applications, especially for front loader work and when transporting on roads or in parking lots. It is designed to make the tractor quieter and use less fuel.

 

For loader work, producers will get maximum benefit from the system by increasing engine rpm with the hand throttle to at least 50 percent. Once the hand throttle is set, auto throttle will help provide the feeling of a power boost when the producer is filling the bucket with material from a pile. In this scenario, as the operator presses the pedal, the engine will operate between 50 percent throttle and 100 percent throttle. It will not go below 50 percent until the hand throttle is lowered back down.

 

In power take-off (PTO) applications such as mowing or snow blowing, auto throttle is not recommended because PTO implements usually require a constant speed in order to properly function and optimize performance.

The Mauser cab offers protection from the elements and expands the versatility of 2025R Tractors to perform in all climates.
