Massey Ferguson says its new compact tractor range, the GC1700 series is perfect for both residential and commercial use.

The line-up includes two models, the GC1705 and GC1715 which will replace the previous GC range.

The series is powered by a fuel-efficient, 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine. According to Massey Ferguson, both models feature a low-rated engine rpm that reduces vibration and noise to improve engine life and decrease fuel consumption.

A radiator and radiator fan are strategically placed behind the engine, pulling hot air away from the operator thus keeping both operator and engine cool at all times.

Massey Ferguson says the new design of the GC1700 tractors was guided by customer input and constant testing to give customers more convenience, comfort and ease of operation.

A wide open, clutter free platform allows the operator to move on and off the tractor with ease and offers plenty of space for natural leg movement. The new seat is ergonomically designed with adjustments to custom-fit any body profile for improved driving comfort.

The hydraulic joystick has been repositioned to the right side of the front console, putting the control lever within easy reach of the operator. Its refined linkage provides smoother operation to reduce arm movement for the operator while a new safety lockout lever prevents the operator from inadvertently bumping the joystick or operating the hydraulics when in the locked position.

A loader quick-attach design allows the operator to effortlessly remove each attachment when necessary.

The range also features a 2-range hydrostatic transmission with variable speeds from zero to top speed in each range.

Hydrostatic foot pedals are located on the right side of the platform, while the brake pedal is on the left side. The foot pedals are spring -loaded and are designed to return to a neutral position when released.

Massey Ferguson adds the cruise control has also been redesigned and moved to the front dash panel for easy access, which allows effortless engagement by simply pushing down on the orange handle once the desired speed is reached.
