EASY ACCESS TO PARTS
Flip-top bucket seat and hinged hood provide full, instant access for lubrication and adjustment of brake pulleys, belts and control linkage. The "725" engine is mounted to blow engine heat forward, away from the operator. Wide seat is amply padded with foam rubber and rises high in back to give good support and adds to driver comfort

EFFICIENT POWER FLOW
Power is delivered efficiently to all power take off points and wheels. The snow blower is driven from the main p. t. o. at the front of the engine. Power for the rotary mower and all pull-behind attachments is taken from the spiral bevel gear box, connected directly to the flywheel end of the engine by a shaft and flexible couplings

ELECTRIC STARTER AND GENERATOR AVAILABLE
Optional at slight extra cost for tractors not initially equipped. This heavy-duty electric starter and generator give fast. effortless starts at the touch of a button. The unit is equipped with key ignition for added safety and convenience.

THREE SPEEDS FORWARD AND REVERSE
The "725" has a top speed of 6 mph, second speed of 33/4 mph and first speed of 2 mph. In addition, a special 10" pulley for heavy-duty tilling allows the tractor to move at approximately 1 mph. The oil-lubricated transmission features antifriction ball and roller bearings on hardened shafts for smooth operation and long life.

NEW SPUR-GEAR DIFFERENTIAL FOR CONTROLLED TRACTION
A special friction mechanism in the "725" differential always provides driving torque to both wheels in drive at all times, yet retains true differential action. The controlled traction feature provides solid footing even when one wheel is on a slippery surface.
"EASY-LIFT" CONTROL LEVER
A specially designed lever is standard equipment on the "725" for lifting front or rear-mounted implements. The high leverage ratio means that little physical effort is required to raise the heavy attachments. For further ease in handling, counterbalances are available for both front and rear implements.
