Massey Ferguson has announced the introduction of the new MF 1700 M Series of compact tractors. All are powered by the latest Stage V compliant engines delivering powers up to 67hp.
“Equipped to a high specification, the powerful MF 1700 M Series is designed and built to provide excellent performance in a wide range of horticultural, amenity, municipal, grass care and agricultural applications,” says Francesco Murro, Director Marketing Massey Ferguson Europe & Middle East
All models come with four-wheel drive as standard, plus a choice of a comfortable, quiet cab or with a platform, as well as hydrostatic or mechanical transmissions to perfectly match the task and users’ requirements.
These new, well-equipped tractors complement the existing 20hp, MF 1520 and 25hp, MF 1525 models. With its compact chassis the MF 1700 M Series is the perfect choice for those looking for a narrower and lighter tractor than the MF 3700 Series and MF 4700 Series, which begin at 75hp.
“With the introduction of the MF 1700 M Series Massey Ferguson has now completely renewed our entire range of tractors dedicated to the smaller farm, groundscare and amenity sectors,” says Mr Murro. At the same time, we took the opportunity to greatly increase the compact tractors’ specifications to boost productivity and comfort for both professional and occasional users.
“The new MF 1700 M Series is also a perfect fit with Massey Ferguson’s current tractor line-up, providing more models and an even wider choice for professional farmers and operators,” he adds.
Powered by the latest, 1.8 litre Stage V compliant engines, the 35hp MF 1735 M and 40hp MF 1740 M, combine compact dimensions with powerful performance. The perfect mowing tractors, both models come with the well-proven, improved HST hydrostatic transmission and a choice of versions with a platform or cab.
Both tractors are available with a new factory-fitted, three-blade, 60-inch-wide mower deck. With its drive-over design it is simple and easy to mount. Cutting heights are adjustable from the seat in eight stages from 25mm to 115mm and the deck offers 150mm of ground clearance, thanks to the larger tyre sizes.
To meet the strict Stage V engine emission standards, the common-rail engine is fitted with All-In-One after-treatment. This system, which offers automatic regeneration, contains all the components in one compact unit, which is mounted under the bonnet with no impact on visibility and requires no additional maintenance.
