New models have been released to the Massey Ferguson GC1700 Series sub-compact range

Replacing the previous MFGC 1705, 1715, and 1720 models, the new MF GC 1723E and 1725M models now feature similar styling to the larger tractors under the Massey Ferguson banner.

"We’re introducing the new models to the market with redesigned styling, functionality, and control placement, which will make the new MF GC Series easy to own and a pleasure to operate," says Simon Van Kruining, product manager for Massey Ferguson compact tractors.

"There are specification options to suit most users, which will make them ideal for grounds-care and farm work. Whether the job is commercial or residential, we’re confident the new range will get the job done efficiently."

The new GC1700 Series can be equipped to take on multiple tasks and has the exceptional durability and performance features expected from a Massey Ferguson. The GC 1723E is 23hp and the GC 1725M is 25hp.

The GC1700 Series sub-compact tractors are powered by the fuel-efficient, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine. The high-torque engine is protected under a functional, solid metal hood with a tilt up design that makes access to the engine quick and easy.

Both models feature a low-rated engine rpm that reduces vibration and noise to improve engine life and decrease fuel consumption. The radiator and radiator fan are strategically placed behind the engine, pulling hot air away from the operator, keeping both the operator and engine cooler.

To improve overall operating performance for multiple functions, the hydraulic joystick is to the right side of the front console, putting the control lever within easy reach of the operator.  A safety lockout lever prevents the operator from inadvertently bumping the joystick or operating the hydraulics when in the locked position.

The loader quick-attach design allows the operator to effortlessly remove each attachment when necessary. The GC1700 series features a two-range hydrostatic transmission with variable speeds from zero to top speed in each range. 

The models are equipped to handle a wide range of attachments and accessories. An optional front loader is available, specifically tailored to deliver maximum performance and an optional 54-inch mowing deck delivers the finest cut.

The MF GC 1725M model can be fitted with a quick-attached, self-standing backhoe. The boom float feature makes it easier for the operator to position the bucket, create an even floor bed in the cut and provide smooth grading operation when backfilling.

"Users today are looking for a comfortable tractor that is productive and versatile to tackle a range of tasks and they also expect it to be exceptional value and this is exactly what we are offering with the new MF GC Series," says Simon.
