The engine uses the latest technologies to optimize fuel economy, improve control and accuracy, and reduce environmental impact.

The common rail system (CRS) optimizes fuel economy and reduces operating costs*. High-pressure injection atomizes fuel into finer particles which burn more completely. It results in improved fuel economy and lower cost of operation.

The electronic control unit (ECU) provides optimum fuel control and accuracy. ECU monitors and controls the engine. It continuously monitors engine conditions and adjusts the fuel delivery accordingly to ensure optimum performance and emissions.

The new engine comes with an after treatment system. The system operates automatically. The exhaust filter consists of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) which captures particulate matter (PM) contained in the exhaust gas. Using a natural cleaning process, most of the PM trapped in the exhaust filter is eliminated by the heat of the exhaust stream generated by normal use. In situations of low temperature, engine speed or load factor, an active cleaning cycle is initiated. In this cleaning cycle, the exhaust gas temperature is raised by injecting additional fuel during the exhaust stroke of normal vehicle operation to the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC).

After many hours of use, the exhaust filter may require an ash removal service.

NOTE: *As compared to engines not using CRS technology.

DPF cleaning

Depending on the load that the tractor is under, as well as ambient temperature, humidity, and engine speed, the DPF may build up with particulate matter, thus requiring cleaning. Filter cleaning is determined by one of three conditions:

  • A prescribed time-based estimation of needed filter cleaning
  • DOC/DPF pressure sensors
  • A particulate matter buildup estimation based on load conditions

Once one of the three conditions has been met, filter cleaning will occur.

There are three different types of filter cleaning processes:

  • Passive filter cleaning
  • Active filter cleaning
  • Parked filter cleaning

Passive filter cleaning

Passive filter cleaning occurs naturally when the engine is generating enough heat to oxidize particulate matter. This automatic process occurs continuously during normal operating conditions. No tractor icons or symbols appear on the display during passive filter cleaning.

NOTE: Passive filter cleaning requires no operator involvement, and there is no interruption to tractor operation.

Active filter cleaning

If conditions (temperature, load, or speed) for passive filter cleaning cannot be achieved, then PM is removed using active filter cleaner.

To achieve the required conditions, exhaust temperature management (ETM) manages the initiation and duration of active filter cleaning. ETM can adjust numerous engine parameters and/or inject a small quantity of fuel into the exhaust stream for a short duration. The fuel turns to vapor and chemically reacts with the catalysts in the DOC to create heat to oxidize PM.

It is important to note that at no time is the fuel in the DOC/DPF ignited, and there is no flame within the DOC/DPF.

Like passive filter cleaning, active filter cleaning requires no operator involvement, and there is no interruption to tractor operation.

Parked filter cleaning

In some instances where passive and active filter cleaning have not fully cleaned the PM from the system, a parked filter cleaning may need to take place. Most likely, the only time a parked filter cleaning will need to occur is when automatic filter cleaning has been disabled for an extended period of time and multiple warnings to engage filter cleaning were ignored or if the tractor has been used during light load conditions. Additionally, when the automatic filter cleaning process has been deliberately interrupted multiple times, or if active filter cleaning has failed numerous times due to a failed component, a parked filter cleaning may be requested. In these rare instances the operator will have to park the tractor and start the filter cleaning process.

The parked filter cleaning process needs to be activated based on usage and operation of the tractor. The process will take approximately 30 minutes. See operator’s manual for more details.

This system constantly monitors the soot level of the tractor, making sure the tractor is always in peak performance condition. This ensures high performance at all times.

NOTE:  Number of hours since last regeneration and soot level percentage viewable on LCD display.

PowrReverser transmission allows for clutchless direction changes
PowrReverser transmission lever PowrReverser transmission lever

The 12/12 PowrReverser transmission is available on the 4M and 4R Tractors.

The PowrReverser transmission offers a hydraulically shifted forward-to-reverse transmission. This allows for clutchless shuttle shifting between forward and reverse with one lever for quick and easy direction change.

  • PowrReverser transmission does not require the operator to use the clutch to shift between forward and reverse

The PowrReverser transmission features a hydraulically actuated wet clutch. Two multi-disk clutch packs (one forward and one reverse) are hydraulically engaged when the directional (reverser) lever is placed in either the forward or reverse position.

Each clutch pack consists of three large, 5-in. diameter clutch disks that operate in oil and are oil-cooled, allowing excellent heat dissipation and extended clutch life.

Forward/reverse clutches Forward/reverse clutches
  • Clutch A is used for the forward operation of the tractor
  • Clutch B is used for the reverse operation of the tractor

 

Key features of the PowrReverser transmission:

  • 12 forward/12 reverse (12F/12R) speeds
  • Reverser lever, located on the left side of the instrument console, allows the operator to make direction changes without clutching
    • Fast shuttle shift for improved loader operation
  • Dual-cone synchronizers allow for synchronized shifts between gears for on-the-go shifting with the use of the clutch
  • Dual-cone synchronizers permit on-the-go, low-effort shifting between gears
  • Helical-cut gears for quiet operation
Helical-cut gears Helical-cut gears
#
  • Well-spaced speeds for turf, loader, and transport work
  • Neutral start switch prevents tractor from starting when transmission (main range) is not in neutral
  • Dual wet-disk clutches provide long clutch life
  • Shifts between ranges are not synchronized
  • PowrReverser transmission models have both hand and foot throttle controls
  • Especially handy when using a loader

The tractor is available with a three-range electronic hydrostatic (eHydro) transmission.

  • Fluid under pressure transmits engine power to the drive wheels using a pump and motor
  • Functions both as a clutch and transmission
  • Provides high torque for startup
  • Reduces powertrain shock loads

Danfoss® company supplies both the pump and motor. This ensures that the components are matched to each other, providing maximum efficiency.

 

The electronic hydrostatic transmission is ideally suited for jobs where productivity is a must, such as loader or mower applications.

Twin Touch™ foot controls allow the operator to select both directions of travel and speed with a touch of the toe.

Key features of the eHydro transmission:

  • Infinitely variable ground speeds, in each range, allow the operator to match the speed of the tractor to the job.
  • No clutching for fast and easy direction changes
  • Twin Touch foot pedals for quick and easy forward/reverse operation
  • Cruise control is optional equipment
    • Cruise control switch is located on the right-hand console for easy access

#

Danfoss eHydro transmission is used for reliable operation. Durability features include:

  • Large forged trunnion shaft with larger support bearings that reduce vibration and noise.
  • Center section made from ductile iron (much stronger than grey iron used in many competitive transmissions).
  • Transmission oil cooler cools transmission oil for longer transmission life.

Safety features of the eHydro transmission include:

  • The tractor will start with one or both foot pedals depressed, but it will not move until both pedals first return to neutral
  • Operator presence - the tractor will come to a stop if the operator leaves the seat but will not shut off unless the power take-off (PTO) is also running
Key John Deere advantage
Twin Touch foot controls Twin Touch foot controls
#

John Deere's Twin Touch foot controls offer several key advantages over competitive hydro model tractors.

  • Some competitive hydrostatic tractors use a treadle pedal (toe-heel) design foot control for operation of the hydro 
    • Requires the operator to use both toe and heel to change direction, resulting in increased operator fatigue
Optional cruise control
Optional cruise control on 4M Tractors Optional cruise control on 4M Tractors
#

 A true-speed cruise control is optional equipment on 4M Tractors with eHydro transmission. Cruise control is electronically engaged and disengaged and is located on the operator console to the right of the operator.

  • Maintains desired forward speed without pressure on the foot pedal
  • Cruise control is set by engaging the switch when the desired speed is reached
  • A speed sensor also allows the tractor to maintain preset speed driving up and down hills
  • To disengage the cruise control, either:
    • Apply pressure to the turn brakes opposite the eHydro pedals
    • Disengage cruise control switch
    • Briefly depress the reverse control pedal
LoadMatch™ power management system

LoadMatch is a standard feature on the 4M Series Tractors.

 

If torque requirements increase significantly, the transmission will reduce the tractor's drive speed to compensate for the increased load on the transmission, maximizing torque to drive wheels and minimizing stalls.

 

Controls automatically adjust LoadMatch compensation depending on the tractor’s application. PTO applications require less engine speed fluctuation, therefore adjusting the amount of droop depending on PTO speed. This adjustment increases efficiency and optimizes engine speed and torque output based on tractor application.

 

While typically left on, LoadMatch can be turned off through the center console display.

MotionMatch™ system

MotionMatch, standard on the 4M Series Tractors, is adjustable through the center console display. It offers variable adjustments to either lengthen or shorten the rollout when the HST pedal is depressed or released.

One of the greatest customer concerns involves difficulty in attaching tractor implements. John Deere has addressed this issue with the iMatch Quick-Hitch.

The iMatch Quick-Hitch provides easy hookup and a guaranteed fit for all Category 1 implements that are designed to meet the ASAE Category 1 Standard S278.6 for quick-attach hitches.

  • All implements require a set of bushings in order for the attachment to fit and work properly with the iMatch Quick-Hitch. One set of bushings comes with the iMatch Quick-Hitch.

NOTE: The bushing set can be seen in the picture above. These bushings allow the hooks on the iMatch and the pins on the implement to fit together properly. All other implements (box blades, tillers, rear blades, etc.) will require a set of bushings to enlarge the pin to fit with the iMatch hooks. Bushings of different lengths can be found in the parts system or through a bushing supplier (see dimensions below).

  • Upper bushing
    • Inside diameter: 1.93-1.06 cm (0.76-0.77 in.)
    • Outside diameter: 3.15 to 3.43 cm (1.24-1.25 in.)
  • Lower bushings
    • Inside diameter: 2.24 to 2.26 cm (0.88 to 0.89 in.)
    • Outside diameter: 3.63 to 3.66 cm (1.43 to 1.44 in.)

Regular service and maintenance are essential to the performance, productivity, and longevity of the tractor.

  • Easy access to regular service points minimizes service time.
  • Easily removable cowl and side panels, improved hood design, and integrated maintenance position on the grille provide easy accessibility for routine maintenance.
  • Tractors are equipped with extensive onboard self-diagnostic capabilities and are fully compatible with John Deere’s exclusive Service ADVISOR™ system.
  • Daily service requirements are minimal and simple to accomplish. Most service interval requirements can be performed with a basic understanding of procedures and common tools.
  • Improved cost of ownership

Green turddddddd

2/5

I have owned my 4044m for over a year, bought it brand new so it is one owner. I traded another brand tractor which was much smaller in size to " upgrade" come to find out the John deere has less power to weight than the much smaller other brand. This has lead to problems operating the same equipment I used with the smaller other brand. The deere has been tested twice by the dealer and both times were within specs. Now I have a very expensive "upgrade" that is not as capable as my smaller other tractor. When buying a tractor compare all the printed numbers between brands. Do not trust the word of someone that is just trying to keep their sale numbers up.

NIGHTMARE!

1/5

Absolute NIGHTMARE! Bought the tractor new in 2017 around 400 hrs Both rear axle seals began leaking significantly. Enough were I stopped driving it. Called dealer to have fixed because it was under warranty. They told me they dont have a tool to fix the tractor. Its been 5+ months without any updates, still cant find the tool. Absolute disgrace on John Deere's part. Buy it if you want to pay for something that you cant fix, use, or trade for another color.

Great tractor foR SMALL FARM ACREAGE!

5/5

I have been looking for a tractor for some time and the 4044m fits the bill. I have used a Kioti DK40 for years, but this tractor is in another class! Using it to cut 10 acres of heavy grass with MX6 and it works great. The Power Reverser transmission is excellent. I would have given the tractor 5 stars on quality, but there were some retainers for the grill assembly left off at factory, but my dealer Heritage Tractor took care of promptly! The tractor costs more than some, but you get a nice piece of equipment that should last years to come. The fuel gauge is awkward in its location behind driver, but works well.

Pros

  • power reverser
  • ease of use
  • i match

Cons

  • price
  • fuel gauge

Perfect for my needs

5/5

Bought this to work on my ranch and around my other property. Use it for shredding, box blading, rock raking, and wood chipping. Havent had any issues doing what I needed to do within reason. Added some lights and a canopy and can work day or night. Have a little over 200 hrs on it and so far so good. Keep the dust/grass clippings out of the radiator to keep the temps down, they build up fast when its dry like it has been lately. Bought a woodmax 8800 chipper and it runs it perfectly. The 4wd keeps moving when box blading, cant imagine not having 4wd. My brother-in-law has a 3038 and although he loves his he mentioned the huge power difference between the two. Oh another must, bucket teeth. If you want to do any real digging, gotta have them. This is my first tractor, so take this review for what its worth, but I am VERY happy with my purchase.

Easy to use

5/5

I love this tractor. I was used to using a Bobcat, which I loved to clean my horse pen. My husband, seeing me climb in and out, took me to our JD dealer where he had looked at compact tractors. I drove the 4044M and loved it. Everything is sooo easy to access and get on and off of, the quick change features are simple. Literally takes me 3 minutes to take the loader off and put the bale spear on. Easy to manhandle with female hands.

Pros

  • loader joystick
  • step
  • hydro pedals

Cons

  • the seat lever
  • key switch at knee level
