The smallest, the MF 1525H, replaces the 22hp MF 1523H in the company's 1500 Series and is powered by a 25hp three-cylinder diesel engine. It features a three-range hydrostatic transmission, cruise control and auto-throttle control, as found on MF's larger 1500 Series hydrostats.
Operators with implements and attachments for rear linkage should appreciate the 1525H's 600kg lift capacity as well as its two standard auxiliary hydraulic valves, both selectable for single or double action.
Fitted with rear foldable ROPS, this tractor can also be equipped with a matching 1.37m mid-mower deck in mulching or rearor side-discharge versions, the latter with optional collector.
Two new compacts - the 28hp MF 1529MA and 32hp MF1532A - come as a rationalisation of the 1500 Series and replace four models (1529M, 1529A, 1532M and 1532A), all of which had different standard specifications.
Both of the new tractors have an 8x8 shuttle transmission with the option of four creeper speeds producing a 12f and 12r mechanical shuttle gearbox - ideal for aeration, drainage and other slow-speed tasks.
Standard on both new compacts are selectable 540 and 1,000rpm rear PTO speeds, engaged by an independent electro-hydraulic PTO clutch with dash-mounted control switch.
A mid PTO can be specified as a factory-built option. So as not to hinder or prevent the fitting of a front-end or backhoe loader, the tractors have a forward-folding, mid-mounted ROPS.
