There are several types of tractors available for agricultural use. Among the most popular are those simply described as lawn or garden tractors. John Deere offers those, as well as the following tractor types: compact, utility, specialty, row crop, and 4WD. Additionally, there are several types of attachments available for purchase that may be necessary to perform specific tasks when completing various lawn, garden, or farm work. 

What is the difference between a lawn tractor and a garden tractor?
While lawn and garden tractors do share some similarities, they also possess a few respective differences that may help you decide which would be best for your needs. Garden tractors are equipped with tires mounted by a 5-bolt hub on the rear axle for rototilling, plowing, and towing capabilities. They also have larger serviceable transmissions and heavier frames. Lawn tractors have tires keyed onto a shaft under dust cover and a sealed transmission that is not serviceable. They are also constructed with lighter frames and do not have ground engagement capabilities.

What are the different series of John Deere Tractors?
As a leader and innovator in agricultural machinery, tools, and utensils, John Deere works to consistently develop unique options that will provide enhanced user experiences and optimal lawn and garden outcomes. We boast several models of tractors categorized into series based on characteristics, size, and capabilities. The series numbers range from 1 to 9, with the increasing number representing an increase in size of the tractors.
