The 46hp MF 1747 and 38hp MF 1740 were now available and came with platform workstations and strong mechanical transmissions. The new MF 1700 tractors replaced the MF 1500 range. With new features and improvements, the MF 1740 and MF 1747 are expected to further enhance the strong reputation for reliability and ease of use, the company said.

AGCO general marketing manager - Far East David Alvarez, said, “MF1700 range is packed with features that combine performance with ease of use and reliability.

“Massey Ferguson has developed these tractors to meet the exacting demands of agricultural, plantation and horticultural users, as well as providing versatile tractors for use by smaller farmers and growers in the region.”

The MF 1747 has been powered by the latest design four-cylinder, 2.2-litre engine, which delivered 46hp (ISO), while the MF 1740 was equipped with a turbocharged, 1.5-litre, three cylinder that generates 38hp (ISO) with fuel tank capacity of 45 litres on the smaller model and 53 litres on the higher powered tractor.

Solid and reliable transmission
MF1700 has a mechanical gearbox that provided 12 forward and 12 reverse speeds. With Synchro reverse shuttle lever, this gearbox was the perfect combination of reliability with simplicity of use.

Hydraulic power and lift for all applications
The MF 1700 Series tractors have 75 litre/min hydraulic flow providing the capacity to operate modern implements with ease. Two spool valves were fitted, along with a new joystick control lever. The high capacity category 1 three-point linkage offered a maximum lift of 1,400 kg lift on both models, providing plenty of power to handle a wide range of mounted equipment with full draft control, via top link sensing.

Standard high specification PTO
MF1700 Series tractors benefited from a two-speed — 540/540E — Independent PTO (IPTO), with a soft start function that allowed gentle take up of the drive. This provided progressive engagement, protecting the tractor and implement.

Operator Comfort
The MF1700 has a semi-flat floor operator platform with folding centre mounted ROPS. The main controls have been positioned for ease of use and accessibility, while the instrument panel provides complete and clear displayed of all the information the driver needs. Colour-coded controls and switches are arranged in a neat and in a logical order.
