The 1700 Premium Series of compact tractors offers six models from 35-59 engine hp, all featuring four-wheel drive, the option of a cab or open platform, two transmission choices and a standard integrated loader joystick. Electronic engine management monitors adjust fuel functions, and models MF1736, MF1742 and MF1749 feature three-cylinder, 1.7-liter diesel engines with 36.2, 41.6 and 48.3 hp, respectively. Meanwhile, 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-disk clutch.
Operators can choose between a 12-by-12 power shuttle transmission and a more advanced hydrostatic transmission (HST). When quick direction changes are needed, an electronically controlled, wet multi-disc clutch lets the operator shuttle the tractor, changing the direction of travel simply by flipping a lever.
