While large machines can be useful for handling hefty tasks on your land, they often aren’t convenient when it comes to more tedious projects due to their size. Inspired by these small-scale jobs, Massey Ferguson developed a piece of equipment designed to get those detailed jobs done.
The Massey Ferguson GC1700 Series is specifically tailored to meet the needs that big tractors cannot, while still offering impressive power, making your to do list a little easier to complete. Due to its versatile features, the GC1700 Series is a staple year round. Here are just some of the uses that the GC1700 Series provides for each season.
Spring – Gardening
Spring cleaning just got easier with the GC1700 Series. Whether it’s tilling your garden or managing those pesky weeds, the ergonomics of the GC1700 Series makes it easy to get into tight and delicate places – like flower beds – without risking ruining your plants. There’s no need to worry about tearing up your yard or your freshly planted flowers, the GC1700 Series can maneuver around them and get the job done efficiently. Plus, two GC models are fitted with a front end loader and backhoe standard, adding to the utility that the GC1700 offers.
Summer – Mowing
The GC1700 Series is also a mower, but far more tough than the standard push mower or riding lawn mower. While a standard mower’s performance crumbles when it come into contact with rocks and gravel, the GC1700 Series is tough enough to power on. Forget about being cautious when mowing, these rocks won’t phase the GC1700 Series. Its grit alone is enough to make the GC1700 Series a useful piece of equipment, but Massey Ferguson didn’t stop there in their efforts to create a top-of-the-line product. The GC1700 Series is also designed with convenience of the user in mind. With the roomiest platform in its class and an adjustable seat, you’ll be getting the job done quickly and comfortably. Talk about a major step up from a push mower!
Fall – Storing Hay and Logs
Once the temperature cools down, the race is on to prepare for the upcoming winter. Whether you are moving hay, feed or even stocking your firewood supply, you’ve got to beat the clock when it comes to winter weather. With the GC1700 Series you can get the job done quicker and easier. The machine’s small size makes it easy to navigate through tight spaces in a barn and you’ll get the job done faster thanks to the front end loader, whether you chose the DL95 for its curved boom design or the L105E for its one piece main frame and taper arms.
Winter – Plowing Snow
Few things are worse than shoveling snow in below freezing temps. Not only is it bone chillingly cold, but it’s a time consuming task that many try to avoid. Snow clearing might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a garden compact tractor, but the Massey Ferguson GC1700 Series makes it easy to clear snow during the cold winter months. Suffering through the winter weather, but not getting any snow? The backhoe can be used to bust up ice on lakes and troughs. Whatever you need it for, the Massey Ferguson GC1700 Series has the strength and durability to get the job done, without being bulky or in the way.
