A John Deere Closer Look: Families 1 & 2 Utility Tractors

If you know tractors, you know the name John Deere. For nearly 200 years, John Deere has been leading the way when it comes to agricultural equipment and their line of utility tractors is no exception. In this new blog series, we’re taking a closer look at the different families of John Deere utility tractors and what each of them has to offer you, your farm, and your operation. This week, we’re starting at the top with Family 1 Sub-Compact Utility Tractors and Family 2 Compact Utility Tractors.

There’s a lot to cover, so let’s jump right in!

Family 1 Sub-Compact Utility Tractors

With two different models that each offer competitive horsepower, unbeatable comfortability, and superior, fine-tuned engineering, the John Deere Family 1 Sub-Compact Utility Tractors are the perfect mini tractor for every single basic work need around your small farm. The AutoConnect Drive One mower deck (with an optional heated cab) turns these tractors into a mower that can get even the largest jobs done right the first time.

Do you have a larger job to tackle? Not to worry! John Deere Family 1 Sub-Compact Utility Tractors are equipped with an iMatch Quick-Hitch system that enables the use of multiple easy-to-use attachments. These include loaders, that utilize John Deere’s Quik-Park Loader Mounting System, as well as backhoes, blades and more.


If you’re ready to transform your land into something that is far more than just what your home sits on, “this is the one!”

Family 2 Compact Utility Tractors

Are you in the market for something a little heavier and harder working than Family 1? Then this might be just what you’re looking for! The John Deere Family 2 Compact Utility Tractors are a simple (yet strong) series of compact utility tractors that have been updated, redesigned, and improved over the years with you, the user, in mind. They offer premium performance, a comfortable ergonomic layout, a heavier frame, and a range of user-friendly features and horsepower capabilities.

Much like Family 1, versatility is the name of the game with Family 2. These tractors feature over 200 compatible attachments designed to help you tackle a full day’s worth of work with ease. These include the 220R Quik-Park Loader, the 270B Quick-Tach Backhoe, and many other digging, loading, and grading tools.


No matter what the task may entail, Family 2 has the power, reliability, and attachments needed to help you get it done faster, easier, and safer!
