What Do John Deere Model Numbers Mean?

The first number tells you which family or series the tractor is in. John Deere produces nine series of tractors, with the 1 series being the smallest and 9 being the largest. The next three numbers are the estimated horsepower and with this, you can understand how powerful that tractor is. The final letters tell you about the features of the tractor. In general, the higher the letter in the alphabet, the more features it will have, and also, the more it will cost. So E is the basic, M is a bit upgraded, and R has the most capabilities.

For example, the John Deere 5055E is in the 5 Family, has about 55 horsepower, and has the basic features for that model. It will also be cheaper than the M or the R version. This tractor is great for handling jobs around your farm or property. It’s simple yet reliable and easy on your budget.

With that in mind, you can have a better idea of what kind of tractor you’re looking for. Still have questions? We’re here to help. Give us a call or visit your nearest location to speak to any of our team members. We’ll help you pick out the right tractor for your needs.
