    HYDROSTATIC SYSTEM (716 & 712) . . . infinite control of speed and forward/reverse changes without clutching. Manual bypass system so the tractor can be moved with the engine off. Hydrostatic unit is mounted integrally with the differential for extra cooling area. Automatic bypass for fast cold weather warm-up. Soft ride valve bypasses hydraulic surges to smooth out driving action under sudden demands of tilling and shock loads.

    FLOTATION TIRES . . . wide rear tires on beadlock rims add comfort... reduce skidding and scarring on tight turns. Automatic traction system ... one wheel drives if the other slips.
    BALANCED ENGINE . . . single cylinder air-cooled engine is dynamically balanced horizontally and vertically to reduce vibration for day-long driving comfort. Tilt-up hood for all-around accessibility.

    FRONT, CENTER, REAR PTO . . . lets you handle just about any kind of power-driven attachment in its class . . . that's total flexibility for the way you use your 700, and how often.
    MANUAL LIFT . . . mounted on the left frees your right hand for accurate steering during lift! lower sequence. Action Is natural ---forward to lower, back to raise. Right hand dual lift lever option.

    TRANSMISSION .  . . is an integral part of the tractor design, not an adaptation of an assembly-line-produced general purpose unit. Rugged, hardened gears.., tough cast-iron gear cases. Planetary final drive.



    BELT POWER TRANSFER . . . puts shock dampener between engine gear box and transmission and differential. Smooth. Positive because guides and idlers assure precision
