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.
