The John Deere 2955 is a 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive utility tractor from 55 Utility series. This model was manufactured between 1987 and 1992. The John Deere 2955 tractor is powered by John Deere CD6359D four-cycle six-cylinder direct injection naturally aspirated liquid cooled diesel engine.

A 359 cubic inches (5.9 L) engine has a cylinder bore of 4.19" (106 mm), piston stroke of 4.33" (110 mm), and rated power of 97 hp (72.3 kW). The John Deere 2955 was fitted with two transmission options: top-shaft synchronized transmission with 8 forward and 4 reverse gears, or top-shaft synchronized partial powershift transmission with 16 forward and 8 reverse gears. Max travel speed (forward/reverse): 18.5 mph (29.8 km/h) and 8 mph (12.9 km/h). The closed center hydraulic system includes a piston pump with a flow of 21 gal/min (79.8 l/min).

The John Deere 2955 was equipped with a power steering system, differential hydraulic wet disc brakes, 10.0x16 (2WD) or 13.6x28 (4WD) front tires, and 16.9x38 (2WD) or 18.4x38 (4WD) rear tires. The wheel base is 101.7" (2580 mm). The tractor is compatible with a John Deere 265 front-end loader with lift capacity to full height of 3920 lbs (1778 kg) and breakout force of 5730 lbs (2599 kg).
