John Deere 2032R Troubleshooting

The John Deere 2032R compact utility tractor was manufactured from 2013 to 2021. The John Deere 2032R driveline consists of Yanmar 3TNV88 4-cycle three-cylinder direct injection liquid-cooled diesel engine and 2-range hydrostatic transmission with infinite forward and reverse gears.

A 100.2 cu.in (1.65 L) engine has a cylinder bore of 3.47" (88 mm), piston stroke of 3.54" (90 mm), and maximum power of 32 hp (23.9 kW). The maximum forward speed - 13.7 mph (21.9 km/h), max reverse speed - 13.2 mph (21.1 km/h). The open center hydraulic system used a gear pump with a flow rate of 5 gpm (19 lpm). The hydraulic pressure is 172 bar (2500 psi). The tractor is equipped with a hydrostatic power steering, wet disc brakes, 7.00x12 (AG) or 24x8.50-14 (Turf) front tires, and 12.4x16 (AG) or 36x14.00-15 (Turf) rear tires. The wheel base is 65.2" (1655 mm).

The JD 2032R is compatible with the following attachments: 60", 62", 72" mid-mount 3-blade mower decks with hydraulic lift system, 54" front-mount two-stage snow blower, 54" front-mount blade, John Deere H130 front-end loader with lift capacity to full height of 1027 lbs (465 kg), John Deere 220R front-end loader with lift capacity to full height of 1120 lbs (508 kg), John Deere 46 backhoe with 2-ft flat digging depth of 78" (1980 mm), and John Deere 270B backhoe with maximum digging depth of 84" (2130 mm).
