With the new Massey Ferguson 1700E Series tractors, economically priced doesn’t mean cheaply built. What customers get with these basic, yet versatile tractors is, says Josh Keeney, Massey Ferguson product marketing specialist, “a lot of value for the price.
“We now have three 1700E Series models rated at 24, 34 and 38.5 engine HP,” continues Keeney. “All three models feature powerful, clean-burning diesel engines, rugged steel construction, 4-wheel drive, responsive hydraulics and two different transmission options.”
The 1700E Series’ simple operation and outstanding efficiency start with a powerful new 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine. Thanks to an electronic engine management system, the turbocharged power plants generate ample power and torque to handle challenging conditions and a variety of jobs.
“Customers can also choose between a traditional mechanical gear transmission or the convenient hydrostatic transmission, which is ideally suited for loader work,” Keeney adds. “The constant-mesh mechanical transmission features nine forward and three reverse speeds; while the three-range hydrostatic transmission maximizes torque and streamlines operation with clutchless foot pedal control for forward and reverse speeds, moving from zero to maximum speed without a single gear change.”
