The 1 Series Subcompact Utility tractor is Deere's newest foray into the burgeoning market for subcompact tractors; Branstetter told the audience at the farm show that Deere plans to release two models, the 1023E and 1026R. The models were specifically designed with the consumer in mind, he said, and will accept a full range of implements - one of which is a mid-mount mower deck that allows the operator to drive over it and auto connect, AG Wired reports.
Moreover, the tractors are equipped with an auxiliary power outlet so drivers can charge their mobile phones while they're on the go. According to Branstetter, the new tractors will be offered at Deere dealerships in the next few months. Nonetheless, farmers in attendance at the show and farm equipment experts said there is huge demand for the tractors as many farmers invest in new farm equipment.
