 Massey Ferguson 1700 Series

Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE:AGCO), will introduce and display the 1700 Series premium compact tractors at the 2013 Farm Progress Show, Aug. 27-29 in Decatur, Ill. The 1700 Series tractors, building upon the success of the popular 1600 Series, deliver sophistication, comfort and performance in a versatile, durable package usually found only in full-size models. The tractors feature new, clean-burning Tier 4 compliant turbo-charged diesel engines that provide excellent performance and reliability.

“Operators today are looking for a comfortable tractor that is productive and powerful, yet efficient, regardless of what type of work they’re doing,” says David Bercik, product marketing manager for Massey Ferguson. “These newly designed 1700 Series tractors deliver exactly that.”

The Series offers six models from 35 to 60 gross engine horsepower, all featuring four-wheel drive, the option of a cab or open platform, a choice of two transmissions, plus rear and/or mid PTOs, making it easy for operators to choose the perfect tractor for the job. Those attending the Farm Progress Show can stop by the AGCO lot and see these productive tractors in person.

New turbo-charged Mitsubishi engines

The new line of Mitsubishi diesel engines powering the 1700 Series brings turbo-charged power to compact tractors, providing operators a new level of responsive power and efficiency. The engines benefit from advanced intercooling and a new high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) system for smoother power delivery and a more complete fuel burn. Electronic engine-management monitors adjust fuel functions to keep fuel consumption low without sacrificing power. Models MF1736, MF1742 and MF1749 feature three-cylinder, 1.7-liter diesel engines with 36.2, 41.6 and 48.3 horsepower, respectively. Models MF1754, MF1758 and MF1759 are powered by four-cylinder, 2.2-liter engines offering 53.6, 59 and 59 horsepower, respectively.

All models also include a 540 RPM independent rear PTO with electro-hydraulic engagement and a wet multi-disc clutch, built to deliver greater durability and smoother engagements.
