    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

    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.
