JD 3032E Tractor Operating Transmission

The range shift lever provides two speed ranges.

The range shift lever is used in conjunction with the forward and reverse travel pedals.

Choose a speed range to match work application.

- L – Low speed/high power operations such as tilling hard soil, mowing high grass.

- L or H – Operations including hauling, and grass mowing.

- H – High speed operations such as transport and light mowing.

Driving Machine:

- Start machine engine.

- Unlock park brake.

- Choose L or H speed range on transmission range shift lever to match work application.

- Move hand throttle lever to desired operating speed.

- Slowly depress forward pedal downward to travel forward.

- Slowly depress reverse pedal downward to travel in reverse.

- The farther either travel pedal is depressed, the faster the machine will travel.

- Release travel pedal to stop machine and change speed range.

- Fully stop machine motion before turning key switch to off.

John Deere 3032E/3032 Tractor Differential Lock (Traction Assist)

The differential lock is used to provide better traction when the rear wheels start to slip. Engaging the differential lock will lock the right and left side rear axles together and cause both rear wheels to turn at equal speeds for maximum traction.

- Reduce speed and allow drive wheels to rotate at same speed before engaging or disengaging traction assist.

- Disengage traction assist when driving on dry asphalt or concrete.

- Use traction assist only when necessary for improved ground engagement.

Engaging JD 3032 Tractor Differential Lock:

- Stop or slow machine movement.

- Depress pedal 20 - 25mm (3/4 - 1 in.) to operate differential lock.

Disengaging Differential Lock:

Rear wheel slippage will keep differential lock engaged. Lock will automatically disengage when traction equalizes.

Mechanical Front Wheel Drive (MFWD)

John Deere 3032E/3032 Tractor Mechanical front wheel drive (MFWD) enables the powertrain to drive both front and rear axles for improved traction on difficult ground conditions and provides 4-wheel braking.

MFWD can be engaged and disengaged on-the-go with light loads and on low traction surfaces.

To improve braking on sloped, icy, wet, or graveled surfaces, engage the MFWD.

Add ballast to the tractor and travel at a reduced speed to avoid skidding and loss of steering control. Put the transmission levers in neutral to move the machine when the engine is not running.

- Pull up on MFWD lever to engage MFWD.

- It may be necessary to reduce engine load to disengage front wheel drive.

- Push down MFWD lever to disengage MFWD.

Tips for JD 3032E Tractor Operating MFWD:

- Maintain front tire pressure at maximum allowable level to ensure proper tire performance in all field conditions.

- Engage MFWD to provide four-wheel braking.

- Disengage MFWD when driving machine to or from work site to increase front tire life.
