Is there a chart that shows the various model numbers of JD tractors and the amount of horsepower they have? Or is there a rule of thumb that a novice can follow as to how much horsepower a tractor has. I see comments all the time about various models and what they are capable of but I do not know what horsepower that model has. I think it would be nice to print out a simple chart as to model and horsepower if one is available..

Its a complicated mess of numbers.

Some of the 90's stuff sorta makes a bit of sense in the Compact lineup. and you could tell a hydro from a gear drive by the last digit....a 5 or a zero........Horsepower is a guess. First digit kinda gave a clue on actual size


In the larger tractors I think there was/is a similar system but I got no clue on that.......Guys that worked on them or sold them may know.

Since 2000 it seemed like they pulled numbers from a hat........

Now its back to first digit representing a series/size.........rest of numbers I can't figure out any plan for them.

The last three are the horsepower now, the letter is the trim level.

Soooo, since this was asked in the LCUT forum, a new 3039R is a 3-series with 39 horsepower, and R-level trim (well equipped).

And prior to the current numbers. They went something like this (using 3 series as an example):

3320 (33hp) = current 3033r
3520 (39hp) = 3039r
3720 (46hp) = 3046r

The X320 was the entry level hp, X520 mid level, X720 high power.

R also denotes the actual rated horsepower of the engine, comes into to play with the larger farm tractors. For example a 7265R would have engine rated at 265hp.

To answer Mark's original question, unless someone has gone through the thousands of tractors that Deere made and created a spreadsheet, the info is NOT available!
An "H" is not Hhp, but a 314 IS 14hp, but a 332 is NOT 32hp! SOME model numbers directly relate to hp and some do not... and it's just that simple! Bob

Thanks for the comments. I thought the numbers were more of a marketing factor rather then actually corresponded to horsepower. but you never know until you ask.

The letter is trim level, like on a car. According to Deere, the letters themselves don't stand for anything but the later in the alphabet you get, the more features. In the US, there are models with D, E, G, M, and R. Worldwide there are also units with B, C, and J. If there are two letters, e.g. 5090EL, the first letter is the trim and the second is for some special feature (low profile in this case.)

  • Deere makes an "R" trim tractor for all sizes from 1-9. All 2, 7, 8, and 9 series are only available in "R" trim.
  • The only "D" trim tractor sold in the US currently is the 3D, although there used to be a 5D and 6D sold here.
  • "E" trim tractors are available in the 1, 3, 5, and 6 series.
  • The only "G" trim tractors are 5G specialty orchard/vineyard tractors.
  • "M" trim tractors are available in the 4, 5, and 6 series.
