This classic tractor for kids is modelled on one of the most popular John Deere tractors of the 1970s. The iconic design is made of stamped steel and powered by pedals. At 34″ long this tractor is on the smaller side. It will take 80lbs of weight.

There is little to go wrong with this classic pedal tractor — and of course, no batteries are required. The seat is adjustable. The front wheels are steerable, making the experience of driving as real as possible for kids. We love the classic design.

Front Loader Pedal Tractor

A perfect tractor for kids who like to get busy loading and unloading! Driven by pedals with the chain drive and sprockets all safely enclosed. Goes really well with the pull behind trailer we’ve featured below — get hauling those toys about! This tractor is 55” long.

The Pros and Cons

The front loader is fully working and controlled from the driver’s seat. This model also comes with a roll bar. This front loader pedal tractor suits a wide range of ages (3-8) and will take 85lb in weight.

With the loader attachment, it’s a bit longer than some other models, which might make it trickier to store if you don’t have lots of space.

Threewheel Pedal Tractor with Trailer

This fun, lightweight tractor is ideal for little ones. They can enjoy moving their favourite things around in the detachable trailer.

An excellent choice for a first John Deere tractor and it’s easy for toddlers to pedal. Measures 43″ in length. This model is aimed at the smallest kids. They will probably want a bigger tractor before you know it!

This tractor is excellent for keeping the kids amused, with both a front loader and a backhoe to play with. Kids will get to experience using levers to operate the buckets.

The Pros and Cons

With both the front loader and the backhoe to use this kids tractor will keep the little ones busy with all their digging jobs! The backhoe is operated by levers and can be tucked in to drive away, just like the real thing.

The tires have a rubber tread that will last well. The steering wheel is nice and chunky. The tractor measures 65 inches, a little longer than some others in this list; something to think about if storage space is limited.
