Massey Ferguson has taken another step to strengthen its position in the compact tractor range by introducing a new hydrostatic transmission model with new features including electrical cruise control, max speed adjustment and powered by either three or four cylinder models.
Engine & Transmission
There is a choice between a three cylinder turbo and four cylinder engine which offer 38 HP and 46 HP respectively.
Both the 1740 and the 1747 are offered with either a Hydrostatic or Mechanical 12 x 12 transmission.
The MF 1700 comes with the choice of either cab or platform.
The cab interior is designed to be comfortable and provides excellent visibility whilst remaining operator friendly.
A new category 2 factory-fitted cab with reduced noise levels offering drivers a quieter environment (available on the
MF 1740 and MF 1747 hydrostatic models).
A new integrated beacon harness and dedicated switch, offering drivers extra convenience, are now part of the standard equipment on the MF 1740 and MF 1747 models.
New rear view mirrors fitted on both sides on the full MF 1700 range, offer drivers improved visibility and increased safety.
Two new hand grips and a footstep on the left side of the tractor offer drivers safe and easy access into the cab or onto the platform (available on the full
MF 1700 range).
Hydraulics, linkage & PTO
Models with hydrostatic transmission come standard with mid-mounted PTO.
The rear mounted PTO drive is 540rpm as well as a 540 Eco as a standard with both the MF 1740 and MF 1747 models.
Both models come with a standard Cat. 1 three point linkage with a maximum lift capacity of 1400 kg.
