John Deere 3038E

John Deere 3038E Compact Utility Tractor for Sale Lease from Cross Implement a John Deere Dealer Serving the Midwest region from Illinois, Iowa, Indiana & Missouri


Does a “basic” compact utility tractor really have to come at the expense of performance or capability? Not when it’s a John Deere 3032E Series Tractor. The affordable 3038E Series handles a wide range of chores without breaking a sweat. Or breaking the budget.

The adjustable seat is equipped with heavy-duty spring suspension, making a comfortable ride for an operator of any height. The spacious, uncluttered platform makes entry and exit easier and provides plenty of space, even for the largest footwear.


The 3038E comes standard with a fender-mounted storage compartment, a convenient spot for gloves, hitch pins, and cell phones.


Hydrostatic Twin Touch™ pedals let you easily control the direction and speed of travel of the tractor without having to lift your foot off the platform.


Want to work at a steady pace? The 3038E has you covered with optional cruise control. Get to your desired ground speed using the intuitive Twin Touch™ pedals, set the cruise and go.


Forget the days of stopping the tractor and manually shifting the PTO to engage. With the electro-hydraulic PTO you can turn on your implement while you’re on the go, so you can get work done faster and easier.
