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, no noise, and no backlash
  • 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
  • Fuel filter with replaceable element
  • Full-pressure lubrication system provides filtered oil under pressure to all vital engine parts
  • Glow plugs provide quick starts in temperatures down to -18°C (0°F) (Optional engine coolant heater attachment will assist starting under more extreme conditions.)
  • Auto-bleed fuel system means there is no special bleeding required if the tractor runs out of fuel; this system will self-prime the injection pump, lines, and injectors, providing fast fuel recovery
  • Key start and shut off eliminates fuel shut-off knob
  • Electric solenoid shuts fuel supply off immediately when key is turned off
  • See-through coolant recovery tank permits operator to check coolant level without removing radiator cap
  • Dry-type air cleaner with safety element keeps dirt and other contaminants out of the engine
    • Safety element (second filter) will protect engine if primary filter would develop a leak
    • Protects engine when servicing primary filter
  • Air filter restriction indicator is standard equipment on the 2025R Tractor
  • Sealed-radiator compartment keeps trash and debris on outside of hood
  • Horizontal exhaust discharges fumes away from the operator station, reducing noise and improving operator visibility and comfort

Easy-to-use hydrostatic transmission (HST) increases efficiency

The 2R Series are equipped with a two-range hydrostatic transmission (HST) incorporated in a die-cast aluminum transmission case. Fluid under pressure transmits engine power to the drive wheels via a closed-loop pump and motor arrangement. Infinite ground speeds allow the operator to match the speed of the tractor to the job.

  • No clutching for fast and easy direction changes
  • Twin Touch™ foot pedals for quick and easy forward/reverse operation
  • Transmission oil cooler cools transmission oil for longer transmission life

Safety features of the HST include:

  • The tractor will only start with the range lever in neutral
    • If the range lever is in gear when the key is turned to the start position, the instrument panel instructs the operator to shift to neutral
  • The engine will shut off if the operator leaves the seat and the forward/reverse pedals are depressed

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.

Optional iMatch™ Quick-Hitch feature allows for easy implement hookup
iMatch Quick-Hitch (LVB25976) iMatch Quick-Hitch (LVB25976)

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 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.)
Superb serviceability improves productivity

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
  • 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

NOTE:  Always refer to the operator’s manual for complete maintenance and service recommendations.

Increase productivity with optional auto throttle feature
#

An optional auto throttle kit is available for the 2025R Tractors. This feature is designed to make the tractor quieter and use less fuel. With auto throttle installed, the engine rpm and transmission speed will increase as the Twin Touch™ pedals are depressed. 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.

 

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. The harder the hydro pedal is pressed, the more engine speed available. In this scenario, as the producer 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.
